The Frap Bar

The Frap Bar

The Frap Bar I’m not a big fan of warm/hot drinks. When Starbucks became a house name here in the Philippines, I wasn’t sold on their products. I’m not a coffee drinker, nor do I conform to what’s “in”. We rarely go there, and if we do, I would always order a frap. We live in a tropical country where it’s always warm and I would rather enjoy a cold beverage. Although there are the rare occasions where I would buy a tall order of their signature warm chocolate. Moving on…

The Frap Bar

The Frap Bar is a small kiosk in SM Southmall, situated near Pizza Hut and in front of the elevator. I’ve passed by it over a dozen times and have always been tempted to try their products. One day, I gave in. It was hard to make a decision as to what flavor I was going to get. About three of them made my mouth water, but I finally chose White Choco Oreo.

The frap looked creamy as it was being poured from the blender to the cup, and it was, although it could have been creamier. I also expected more whipped cream. I couldn’t help but compare the serving from the picture, but it turned out to be just enough for the whole thing. It had cookie bits,  the cookies were blended with it, and most of it rested at the bottom of the cup.

The Frap Bar Flavours

I initially wanted to try Creme Brulee, but it was not available. I miss this flavor because Zagu no longer serves it. The other flavor I wanted to try was Butterscotch and Hazelnut. Maybe I’ll try those next time.

Value for money? Well, it’s good enough for Php95. I will definitely try it again next time I’m in SM Southmall.

    I tried this in SM Marikina, as per recommendation of a friend. Price-wise, it was good but I found my drink too sweet to the point of ‘umay’ 🙁

      Yeah, it was too sweet. Maybe you can have it less sweet? I’ll have to ask next time I go there.

    I love anything that is creamy and sweet and I guess I would like this Frap bar. Does it taste like Sundae of McDonalds? The price is somewhat high but as what you;ve said it’s all worth it.

    Want to try this also, I like to taste different. I want something to cool my palate and toning down different flavors.

    White Choco Oreo or Mocha Frap are my all time favorite flavors whenever I visited Cafes. Frap Bar price range is somehow affordable and good to hear it didn’t disappoint you.

    All the frappe drinks are lovely to look at. I confess that I like every single picture shared on Instagram when seeing these lovely sweets. However I don’t drink them a lot. In reality, the most I drink is like two to three cups in a span of one year because I’m afraid to gain weight with much sugar.

    I hope they’ll have a branch here in Davao so that I could taste their frap! I love frap by the way and it looks yummy! 😀

    So affordable! 65-95 is a friendly price for our caffeine fix. I hope they have branches near where I live.
