Starbucks kicked off the holidays with its Merry Coffee launch at the Glorietta Activity Center. Turned the place into a merry setup with elements that sparks joyful memories. Christmas Gift Factory-filled with joy and delight. Commemorating unique traditions that are our own like the time-honored family recipe, hanging sentimental childhood decorations and singing familiar Christmas carols! This season, Starbucks celebrated the spirit with a modern twist.
The theme 'Merry Coffee' is this year's theme where it ignites joy. One thing that got me excited are the red cups! Every Starbucks store is transformed into a festive world of red and green cups! Take a sip of that Peppermint Mocha and you're hit with the joy of the season.

Was part of the media who got to experience the Merry Christmas setup ahead of public. During the event, we got to try out the different booths & games where guests got a chance to win special gifts & prizes. Let me guide you through it! Well, first off, you can't miss the huge Starbucks Red Cups Christmas Tree in the middle. 
Guests also got to enjoy the Holly Jolly Bites pod where they got to taste delectable Starbucks offerings perfect for the holiday season. 

Check out the featured food items of Starbucks Philippines which will be available starting November 2.
Here you can see some of the offerings of Starbucks this holiday season. Starting off with the White Chocolate Dream Cake, layers of chocolate chip cookie cake, moisture butter cake, smooth creamy speculoos mousse finished with white chocolate cream icing. P 200 per slice and P 1,800 for the whole cake.

And some more! The Blue Velvet Lamington, Raisin Pistachio Chocolate Bar, Cookies and Cream Chocolate Bar which I will share on a separate post.

There were some really fun games there where you get to win prizes. I personally liked this Coffee Hugger area where you get to hug the big Starbucks red cup and you get to win a prize depending how hard you hug the cup! I won and got a cool Starbucks pillow!
‘Wish Upon A Sip’ is a game in the Merry Coffee launch inspired by a fortune-telling ball, guests made a wish and pushed their luck to see if it will be granted using the interactive installation of a Starbucks drink. Fans of the brand also took on the ‘Bearista Challenge’. Underneath the signature Christmas tree, guests were asked to spread appreciation by giving strangers a high five, delivering a Christmas wish for the most important person in their life, or simply calling a friend and telling them how grateful they are for their presence. The game yielded an uplifting and exciting experience for everyone, as they brought home magical holiday memories anchored on strengthened affinities. 
Starbucks also introduced new and enticing flavors on their beverages. The Wishing Star Dark Mocha is a dream come true for chocolate lovers. It's rich, dark chocolate mocha, The Wishing Star Dark Mocha offers an extraordinarily chocolatey experience that’s topped with a swirl of green tea whipped cream and wishing star-shaped crisps. Available hot, iced and blended.

Of course, returning favorites like the Toffee Nut Crunch Latte and Peppermint Mocha. They can warm up their hearts with the buttery sweet notes of the Toffee Nut Crunch Latte, or delight in the minty and chocolatey combination of the Peppermint Mocha. 

The price of these Starbucks Holiday Beverages is the following: Tall – ₱ 175 | Grande ₱ 190 | Venti ₱ 205. All Starbucks Christmas beverages will be available in hot, iced, and blended variants. 

It has been a tradition for me to get the Starbucks Christmas Blend. Brew the best flavors of the season are also available in Espresso Roast and the Starbucks Christmas Reserve. Starbucks has celebrated the holidays with the Christmas Blend for over 30 years. It offers distinct flavors of rare, spicy Sumatra beans, carefully aged to bring out deep notes of cedar balanced by a sweet, rich smoothness. Meanwhile, the Christmas Blend Espresso Roast offers a deeper, darker version of the Christmas Blend that is customized for espresso. This variant combines Latin American and Indonesian beans with rare aged Sumatra for a complex flavor profile with intense sweetness and herbal spiciness. The Starbucks Christmas Reserve, on the other hand, brims of an abundance of wonderful flavors of sweet mandarin, ginger and cedar spices so every sip taste like Christmas. 

Holiday season means Holi-Yay Starbucks Cards! and starting November 2, Starbucks stores in the Philippines will be celebrating the joys of the season by offering three holiday cards that are perfect for gifting. One thing that stood out is the Maligayang Pasko Card. Starbucks' very first card made with paper.
With the brand’s initiative to reduce plastic usage, Starbucks is committed to innovating on eco-friendly materials for the Starbucks Cards. Joyful seekers may also get the Snowman Card and the Holiday Tree Card, which illustrate lovely Christmas moments alive in this festive season which I can share on a separate post. All Starbucks Holiday Gift Cards are available for an initial load activation of P300. 
Christmas wouldn't be complete without the season's beautiful merchandise. Starbucks has some very nice & interesting items which are perfect for gifting. With enchanting designs that will appeal to friends and families of all ages. It features woodland animals and holiday motifs in a festive palette of red hues, blues and celebratory pinks and greens.
In the display I saw the 2nd collaboration of Stanley + Starbucks & I was psyched! You see that flask of there?! Yea, I'm definitely getting one!
