  • Starbucks The Blend is the Magic Christmas 2018


    Ho-Ho-Ho three cheers for all!

    You know it's Christmas when Starbucks starts releasing their Christmas menu and merchandise! A big fan of their Toffee Nut Crunch Latte, I was singing Christmas jingles while waiting for my barista to fill it with whipped cream and sprinkle toffee nuts before I hungrily snatch it away. Yes, it's the season of merry ho-ho-ho and while we're in a multi-racial country, I do believe that Christmas can be celebrated by anyone who believes in Santa Claus, the scent of peppermint and gingerbread in the air, and the gift of sharing.

    Speaking about sharing, here's one for Christmas! *sprinkles love* For all you Starbucks fans, this Christmas, Starbucks is celebrating the spirit of yesteryear with a modern twist!

    Starbucks Holiday Beverages Returns

    Starbucks Snowy Cranberry Latte *NEW*
    Nothing quite beats the cozy feelings you get when curling up by the fireplace while watching snow fall outside your window. Crafted to recreate this heartwarming moment, Starbucks is introducing the Snowy Cranberry Latte, a beverage that pairs the signature Starbucks® espresso with velvety steamed milk and toasted white chocolate sauce, topped with snow-like whipped cream and tart cranberry sugar for a festive finish.
    Available hot, iced and blended.   

    Starbucks Toffee Nut Crunch Latte *RETURNING FAVE*
    Ring in the Holiday season with the subtle caramelly sweetness of the Starbucks® Toffee Nut Crunch Latte, topped with whipped cream and a sticky toffee crunch. The rich buttery toffee flavors and aroma of toasted nuts make the perfect partner for Starbucks® espresso roast. 
    Available hot, iced and blended.   

    Starbucks Peppermint Mocha *RETURNING FAVE*
    Indulge in the traditional holiday flavors of the Peppermint Mocha, a combination of espresso and steamed milk sweetened with flavors of chocolate and peppermint. Topped with whipped cream, mocha drizzle and candy cane pieces, this festive beverage is just too good to resist!
    Available hot, iced and blended.   

    Starbucks Holiday Blend

    Let's not forget the roast coffee beans shall we? *inhales*. Inspired by time-honoured traditions, the Starbucks Christmas Blend is available this holiday for you brew a cup of good old times and talk about the merry moments. Three flavourful, beautiful blends for the picking - Starbucks Holiday Blend, together with Starbucks Holiday Blend Espresso Roast and Starbucks Holiday Blonde Roast packed in their timeless design, each featuring a Starbucks past which was also translated to their Starbuck's cup designs.

    Starbucks Holiday Blend RM40.00
    Anticipation is what makes this particular blend so tasty. That’s because the Starbucks® Holiday Blend’s magic comes from rare Sumatran beans that have been aged three to five years. In that time, they develop spicy, cedary and syrupy flavours that our roasters can barely wait for each year when they can create this blend.

    Starbucks Holiday Blend Espresso Roast RM40.00
    Explore the deeper, darker side of Starbucks signature Espresso Roast this season with its cedary and herbal spiciness with an intense caramel sweetness.

    Starbucks Holiday Blonde Roast RM40.00
    For coffee lovers who prefer a more subtle flavour of warm woodsy aromas and soft spicy notes.

    For a quick coffee fix, check out the Starbucks VIA Holiday Blend RM33. It is a pack of three instant holiday classics made from the same signature blend of rare aged Sumatran coffee with lively Latin American beans and mellow Indonesian beans.

    discover 4 Christmas cup designs, each with a symbolic meaning

    Don't miss out the unique Christmas designs translated by Starbuck's yesteryear into 4 distinctive cups. From left to right, I'll list each design here for you (credits to Starbucks).

    Stars often appear in Starbucks designs, even winking atop the Siren’s crown in the company logo. The illustration of a couple reaching up to place a star atop a holiday tree from Christmas Blend 1999 was the starting point for this year’s Stargyle design. Here the stars twinkle against a backdrop of interlinking diamonds in varying shades of Starbucks green.

    On each bag of Starbucks coffee there is a sealed seam that runs along the back, called a fin. Starbucks has been adding a contrasting color along the fin as a design element for years, and the team found a way to bring that design element to center stage. A take on the iconic red cup, the Stripes holiday cup features graphic bands of bright poppy red and a darker cranberry, accented with white pale rose gold. A ribbon of black, white and Starbucks green on the back ties all the four cup designs and reappears in merchandise and store signage and displays.

    “The ribbon was born out of the holiday feeling of boxing holiday presents and wrapping paper,” Cameron said. “The holiday cups feel like these presents you want to unwrap. Each one is its own gift.”

    Ripe coffee cherries have evoked festive holly on packaging over many years, including 2013 and 2017. In a nod to Starbucks coffee heritage, the Flora design features mint-green graphic leaves with pops of colorful bright red berries against a cream-colored background.

    Espresso Houndstooth
    Starbucks Christmas Blend Espresso Roast is known for its intense flavor and caramelly sweetness. Designers used fire to represent this rich, dark roast, and reimagined it as elegant flame in the red and white retro Espresso Houndstooth design.
