Starbucks – Holiday Drinks 2011

Halloween is over, the Holidays are here!  How do we know?  Because the famous seasonal Starbucks “red cups” and holiday favorites are back!  See below for a list of seasonal offerings available at your local Starbucks!  Which ones have you tried?

Holiday Beverages at Starbucks:

  • Caramel Brûlé Latte – the sweetest of Starbuck’s holiday drinks (in my opinion).  If you’ve got a sweet tooth, you’ll love the Caramel Brule latte.  This one is topped with sweetened whipped cream and sugary crystals of caramel brûlé.
  • Eggnog Latte – did you know that Starbucks has been serving the Eggnog latte for 24 years?  It’s a holiday favourite and they haven’t changed a thing!  As an alternative to the Eggnog latte, you can ask for a Tazo Chai Latte with steamed eggnog instead of milk.
  • Gingerbread Latte – this one’s made with gingerbread syrup and topped with whip cream and nutmeg.
  • Peppermint Mocha – a chocolate-y drink with a candycane flavour.  This one’s topped with whipped cream and chocolate curls.

Holiday Baked Goods at Starbucks:

  • Chocolate Crème Whoopie Pie – a thick vanilla cream frosting between two cocoa chocolate cakes, topped with a white icing drizzle.
  • Peppermint Brownie Cake Pop –  a mix of chocolate cake combined with butter cream icing and candy cane pieces, dipped in white chocolate and sprinkled with candy cane bits
  • Cranberry Bliss Bar – a sweet cream cheese icing, hints of orange zest and paired with tart dried cranberries.
  • Holiday Gingerbread Loaf – made with candied ginger, warm spices and cream cheese icing.

    Hi Amber, I’ve seen these drinks around Vancouver already. They should be available from the beginning of November onwards.
