KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – The holidays are just around the corner and we all know what that means. Starbucks‘ menu is getting some Christmas-sy additions. Also, it’s the season for collecting stickers so that you’ll be sporting that highly coveted planner next year.
This year, Starbucks is sporting a new Holiday Cup design. It features hand-drawn scenes of the good things to come this season. From connecting over a cup of coffee to writing holiday cards, giving a thoughtful gift to celebrating with loved ones.
The holidays mean something different to everyone. And, one of the main inspirations behind the design is to encourage customers to add their own colour and illustrations to express their holiday spirit. It’s time to get creative, people!
Celebrating Give Good in all its forms; whether it’s coffee, togetherness, creativity, or wonder, Starbucks invites customers and communities to join them in a contagiously joyful space that fosters co-creation and meaningful connection through Giving Good. This cause is definitely something we can get on board with. Happiness is something we love to binge on ourselves. Why not spread it so that others catch the bug, too?
But of course, you’re also excited to see what’s on offer so you can actually get those stamps. Without further ado, here’s what you’ll be ordering next time you’re at your Starbucks:
Starbucks launched two brand new handcrafted beverages – Peppermint Dark Mocha and Starbucks® Teavana™ Apple Black Tea. Not forgetting the return of all-time favourite, Starbucks® Toffee Nut Crunch Latte.
The Toffee Nut Crunch Latte is a returning favourite, and we’re glad they’ve cut the sugar level on the toffee nut syrup. Combined with velvety steamed milk and espresso shots, then topped with whipped cream and toffee nut crunch toppings; this perennial favourite is the ultimate indulgence.
The Peppermint Dark Mocha, meanwhile, will light up your holiday spirit with decadent dark mocha and peppermint topped with green tea whipped cream and finished with glittering sprinkles of green and red candies. While the peppermint-mocha pairing has been a holiday option for years, this year they’ve gone to the dark side. Could it be a nod to Star Wars? We’d like to think so! The dark chocolate and earthy green tea pairing is the combo we didn’t even know we were waiting for.
Lastly, the Teavana™ Apple Black Tea will let you indulge in a lavishly festive experience with the new, handcrafted bold black tea combined with apple juice and topped with cinnamon spice foam. This is going to be your pick to fight the inclement weather we’re having because it’s very refreshing, with just a touch of a warmth from the cinnamon spice.
Starbucks also welcomes the return of their beloved Holiday Blend, together with Holiday Blend Espresso Roast and Holiday Blend Blonde Roast. Those looking for a quick fix can explore the VIA Holiday Blend – an instant holiday classic made from the same signature blend of aged Sumatran coffee and other Asia/Pacific and Latin American beans.
The roast coffee is also a perfect accompaniment to the limited-time holiday food such as Cinnamon Pumpkin Roll and Cranberry Chia Seed Focaccia Twist.
The holiday menu is now available in Starbucks stores across Malaysia. – The Binge
