Ok, Halloween, bye! See you next year! It’s November (already?!) and as the weather starts to get colder and colder (and friggin’ colder), we await the holiday season to plump ourselves up with the best traditional treats that are a part and parcel of Thanksgiving and Christmas, not to mention open presents that we so deserve after being good boys and girls all year round.
Well, Starbucks has done it again! They are gifting their ardent customers the gift of holiday drinks that bring back the coziness to warm beverages (not the kind that Sheldon Cooper serves), but some seriously delicious, old timers that just comfort the heart. What are the flavors expected to be back this season? For starters
- Caramel Brulée
- Chestnut Praline
- Peppermint Mocha
Uh, take my money already!
And to top it all of (apart from the delicious dollop of whipped cream on top), your favorite holiday drinks will come packaged in their holiday cups. No, it is not the controversial ones they had before, but one that not only packs your hot cuppa of wonderfulness, but also has a social message to it. For the first time, Starbucks holiday cups will be GREEN!
Starbucks Chairman and CEO Howard Schultz said in a statement: “The green cup and the design represent the connections Starbucks has as a community with its partners (employees) and customers. During a divisive time in our country (USA), Starbucks wants to create a symbol of unity as a reminder of our shared values, and the need to be good to each other.” Yes, he’s got the holiday spirit spot-on!
Another great part about the holidays is you sitting in the comfort of your home, probably surrounded by loved ones (even pets count), there by the open fire, sipping on something warm. So Starbucks has gone the extra mile to make all the above mentioned flavors of your dreams available through Starbucks holiday blends and instant coffees that you can make without having to stand in the queue at your local barista.
