Popular coffee chain, Starbucks, has something new for its customers this Christmas on top of its regular merchandise, food, and beverage during the holiday season.
Aside from the traditional Starbucks Planner, the coffee chain is also introducing this year the Starbucks Travel Organizer. For the food, they have three returning favorites and introducing 11 while for the beverages, they will have two new returning beverages and one new Christmas beverage.
I know that a number of you are a huge fan of the Starbucks Planner. You would be happy to know that their 2019 edition features a more hip and young design with a cover that features a canvas finish with metallic gold and copper stamping.
“Inspired by the energy and emotion of handwritten interaction, the Starbucks 2019 planner aims to capture the authentic expression of handcrafting – whether it be on art or on our beverages. Each page will inspire you to handcraft and illustrate your year,” Starbucks said in a statement.
The Starbucks 2019 planner is available in two colors, Espresso and Milk. It also contains beverage vouchers. What makes it different this year is it comes with a Canvas Pouch and a limited edition Starbucks Card for each design.
The new Starbucks Travel Organizer comes with a classic design and a zipper. It is
available in two colors, Dark Teal and Sienna. Each organizer comes with a Special Edition Starbucks Card.
For the beverages, the two returning favorites are the Toffee Nut Crunch Latte and the Peppermint Mocha. The new drink they are introducing this year is the Snowy Cranberry White Mocha, which is espresso on with steamed milk and white chocolate sauce topped with whipped cream and cranberry sugar sprinkles.
Meanwhile, for the food Starbucks is bringing back the Chocolate Toffee Nut Loaf, Chocolate Crepe Cake, and Chicken Fajita Roll. For their new items they are introducing the Cream Milk Pudding, Almond Matcha Doughnut, Choco Chip Overload Cookie, Cracked Cookie, Choco Peanut Butter Bun, Vanilla Blueberry Cake, Chocolate Oat Cheesecake, Christmas Bark, Cranberry Pistachio Turkey Flatbread, Baked Cheese Tart, and Baked Burrito.
During the media launch for their Christmas products in Davao City, we were able to try some of their Christmas products. Personally, my favorites were the Peppermint Mocha, Baked Cheese Tart, and the Vanilla Blueberry Cake.
Starbucks is also rolling out its Christmas Blend, which includes the Starbucks Christmas Blend and Starbucks Christmas Blend Espresso Roast.
The Christmas Blend “offers distinct flavors of Starbucks rare aged Sumatra, showcasing “the cedary spicy layers balanced by a sweet, rich smoothness.” The Espresso Roast “combines Latin American and Indonesian beans with rare aged Sumatra for a nuanced flavor profile with deeper sweetness and hearty spiciness.”
For the Starbucks Card, the coffee shop chain is introducing new designs for the holidays that includes the Snowman Card, Holiday Tree Card, and Maligayang Pasko Card. There will be an initial activation amount of P300 per card.
Starbucks did not held back for its Christmas tradition this year as it rolls out some of its new merchandise, food, and beverage. Fans of Starbucks will definitely love what they have prepared for the Christmas season.
