This holiday season, Starbucks Malaysia celebrates The Blend is The Magic, fostering the joy of valued traditions especially during this time of the year, with new and returning beloved Starbucks seasonal handcrafted holiday food and beverage, and exclusive curated merchandise and gifts – all tinged with a sense of nostalgia that showcases the blend of style, cultures and traditions among family and friends.
From now till the better part of the New Year, Starbucks Malaysia brings the joy of a snowy Christmas to Malaysia, no matter how warm or wet it may be outside, through festive blends of espresso and nostalgic flavours, brewed with care and attention to cater to unforgettable moments for any caffeine lovers out there.
It’s a Christmas Party in the Mouth
There is no better way to fuel the festivities in one’s soul than through food and beverage in the tummy. In the spirit of Christmas, the holiday favourites Toffee Nut Crunch Latte and Peppermint Mocha are bound to ignite the spirit of the season within, one sip at a time.
The Starbucks® Toffee Nut Crunch Latte gives the mornings an extra kick with the rich buttery toffee flavours and aroma of toasted espresso nuts, laced with its subtly sweet caramel goodness through the whipped cream and sticky toffee crunch topping.
Whereas the Starbucks® Peppermint Mocha combines the flavours of chocolate and peppermint with espresso and steamed milk, as the topping of whipped cream, mocha drizzle and candy cane pieces bring back the good ol’ days of Christmas as a kid.
The holiday is made merrier with the new concoction of the Starbucks® Snowy Cranberry Latte, pairing the toastiness of white chocolate sauce with the sweet and tart notes of cranberry, before finishing off with a snow-like whipped cream on top, sprinkled with cranberry sugar.
Besides that, holiday treats are also bountiful at the display counter in every Starbucks outlet across the nation for dine-in or takeaway: from savouries like the apple pie crumble, carrot cake, turmeric bread with sambal strawberry chicken and charcoal egg sandwich, to sweeties like the chocolate eclairs, colourful s’mores doughnuts, dark chocolate granola doughnuts and joyous holiday cupcakes – perfect pairings to the abovementioned blends to make your day a little more wholesome.
Not Chestnuts, but Coffee Beans Roasting on an Open Fire
For the true caffeine aficionados, the return of the most beloved Starbucks® Holiday Blend will get the toes curling with a mere sniff before the slurp. Made from rare Sumatran beans that have been aged up to three to five years, the Holiday Blend coffee beans exude spicy, cedary and syrupy flavours.
For those who wish to explore the deeper, darker side of Starbucks’ signature espresso roast, the Starbucks® Holiday Blend Espresso Roast comes packed with cedary and herbal spiciness with an intense caramel sweetness; while the Starbucks® Holiday Blonde Roast is for those who prefer a more subtle flavour of warm woodsy aroma with softer spicy notes.
On the other hand, the Starbucks® VIA Holiday Blend is for coffee lovers constantly on the go, or looking for a quick caffeine fix. An instant holiday classic made from the same signature blend of rare aged Sumatran coffee with lively Latin American beans and mellow Indonesian beans, all of which contributes to the distinctive cedary, spicy layers that balance with a sweet, rich and smooth flavouring.
Have Yourself a Merry Starbucks Christmas
Whether it is a gift for your coffee-loving friends, or for yourself (because ‘tis is not the season to #TreatYoSelf, we don’t know when is), the Starbucks Holiday merchandise series have a collection of mugs, tumblers, cold cups, and tote bags ready to be wrapped up and placed under the tree.
The year’s ‘Winter is Coming’ and ‘Santa Has Arrived’ collections feature a whimsical mix of intricate snowflakes, golden snowballs, enchanting woodlands, bright and playful reindeers and blossoming mistletoes.
Capping off the merchandise series is the Starbucks® Snow Globe, a collectible miniature to-go cup with Starbucks motifs, coffee beans and the local Malayan Tiger in an iconic green apron upon the silver glittering snow surface.
In addition, there is always the Starbucks® Holiday gift cards to turn to for a breezy gifting option. Each care depicts a delightful Christmas moment that may be topped up with however much amount the recipient may need for his/her next cup of Joe. Besides that, while caffeine is a big no-no for the little ones, the Starbucks® Christmas Bearista plush toys – each donned in a bright, micro velvet shirt and plaid scarf or skirt with a PomPom on the head – are a yes-yes.
