PHILIPPINES, November 2 - Starting today, Starbucks' handcrafted holiday beverages return to stores in the Philippines for a limited time, along with the 2016 vintage Christmas Blend coffee, new food and beverage offerings and an exclusive selection of holiday merchandise. What this means is that my favorite Toffee Nut Frappuccino is back and I can again have Butterbeer custom-made for that extra holiday cheer!
In addition to returning favorites Peppermint Mocha and Toffee Nut Latte, Starbucks is also introducing the Santa Hat Dark Mocha - a decadent dark mocha drink topped with a base of strawberry whipped cream, strawberry drizzle and a dollop of snowy white whipped cream to create a playful “Santa Hat.”
Customers can also look forward to the return of these confectionary favorites - Chocolate Toffee Nut Loaf, Peppermint Brownie, Gingerbread Cookie, Chicken Fajita Roll and the Chocolate Crepe Cake. Starbucks is also bringing in new delectable food items to celebrate the festive season; the Single-Origin Chocolate Cake made with Venezuelan Cocoa Beans, Chocolate Fudge Cheesecake, Triple Chocolate Truffle Cookie, Chocolate Cruffin, Cranberry Bliss Bar, Chicken and Turkey with Cranberry Sauce on Croissant Baguette and the Croque Monsieur on Croissant Baguette.
Starbucks Card collectors, on the other hand, can look forward to three classic Christmas card designs (Snowman, Happy Holiday Card, Holiday Tree Card) worth P300 PLUS the Red Cup and Limited Edition Holiday Card with Metal Wrap that comes with an initial consumable load of P1000 and P2500 respectively.
