New to the Christmas menu is the Starbucks Holiday French Vanilla Latte (price starts from RM19.60). Not my personal favourite but a drink that can't go wrong for the gram with its cute white chocolate snowman atop a French Vanilla drink with a light blue cream made from blue butterfly pea. This is available in hot, iced or blended.
All one to listen to its fans, Starbucks is also bringing back two crowd favourites that needs no introduction: the Toffee Nut Crunch Latte and the Peppermint Mocha. Both are also available a hot, iced or blended handcrafted beverage. Prices for both drinks starts at RM17.50.
Of course, there will be a whole plethora of food and desserts available at the display to go with your drinks.
For those who love brewing their own Starbucks drinks at home, the Holiday Blend Whole Bean lineup includes the Starbucks Holiday Blend (rare spicy Sumatra beans with notes of cedar balanced by sweet rich smoothness), Starbucks Holiday Blend Espresso Roast (an Espresso Roast variant with a complex flavour profile with intense caramelly sweetness and herbal spiciness) and the Starbucks Holiday Blonde Roast (woody with hints of brown sugar, sweet orange and allspice notes). And as always, the best way to truly appreciate it is to smell, slurp, locate its flavours on your tongue palette and describe. The Holiday Blend is priced at RM40 each.
Starbucks is also debuting a holiday merchandise collection that celebrates all things merry and bright with an exciting range of tumblers and cups. The merchandises features woodland animals and holiday motifs, completed by a festive palette of holiday red hues, blues and celebratory pink and greens. For the first time also, Starbucks is also introducing a paper card to its collection in line with its sustainable efforts.
The Holiday Starbucks gift packages also makes gifting a breeze with three variants of Starbucks combinations to pick from. These are priced at RM45 each.
And finally, the one thing any true blue Starbucks fan will look forward to each year end - the Starbucks 2020 planner, available in three colours; Espresso Roast (brown), Anniversary Blend (blue) and the exclusive Siren Edition (pink). The planners can be redeemed with a purchase of any 15 Grande or Venti -size handcrafted Beverages - 5 of which must be the Starbucks Holiday Beverages from 5 November onwards. Additionally, for the impatient, the Planner in blue and brown can be purchased separately for only RM188.
All of Starbucks Holiday offerings will be available in stores from 5 Nov onwards and while stocks last. For more information, please visit Starbucks Malaysia website at www.starbucks.com.my
