5 Things to Expect from Starbucks this season

Even though Filipinos start Christmas when the 'ber' months come in, I usually feel the holidays right after Halloween or when people starts collecting their stickers for the next Starbucks Planner. Indeed it has become a tradition that has always been one of the much awaited offerings from the beloved coffee brand.
This year, I personally think is the most interesting yet. Starbucks Philippines has just launched a magical blend of nostalgic traditions recently at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall. Beautifully setup, nutcrackers but the gates, giant Christmas tree in the middle made with Red Cups and Starbucks Bearista, and a Christmas village with everything Starbucks! As we explored the different stations, we were treated to exciting prizes and experience of things that customers are to expect from Starbucks this season.

Here are the top 5 things to look forward to from Starbucks Philippines this Christmas.
1. Christmas Beverages
In the spirit of Christmas traditions, Starbucks is serving up delightful beverages for the season such as returning favorites; Toffee Nut Crunch Latte and Peppermint Mocha. Customers can enjoy comforting sips of sweet and buttery toffee nut flavors with the Toffee Nut Crunch Latte or delight in the festive chocolate and peppermint flavors of the Peppermint Mocha. All Starbucks Christmas beverages will be available in hot, iced and blended format.
Starbucks is also introducing their newest holiday treat - the Snowy Cranberry White Mocha, a delectable blend of roasty espresso, velvety steamed milk, toasty white chocolate sauce topped with whipped cream and cranberry sugar sprinkles.

2. Festive Treats
These delectable treats will surely make your days merry as they go perfectly with the Starbucks Holiday beverages. The Chocolate Oat Cheesecake made with layers of dark chocolate, milk chocolate and vanilla white cheesecake on a chocolate oat crust and Christmas Barks with a combination of dark, milk and white chocolate barks with cranberries, strawberries and pistachio.
