It's still November and there are roughly 6 weeks before that day of the year again when the Christmas Day is going to be celebrated by all of us. Either Christmas serves as a celebration of religiously to accept the birth of Jesus or merely a festival of winter and family gathering, the Christmas is always been an unique celebration of joy and happiness. Recently, the mood for Christmas is back again and as usual is early than what you may have thought. The best thing is that those feel good mood for Christmas and the year ending cheer mood will never be the same if....


do not introduce something new into their menu list!!

In conjunction with the Christmas celebration, Starbucks have come out with three new drinks to blend the holiday season.

First in the list is Toffee Nut Frappuccino. Toffee is confection made by boiling molasses or sugar along with butter and flour, and always been, as in this case mixed with nuts or raisins. Toffee Nut is an exquisite drink but I find it quite mediocre, so-so and another variation of normal frappuccino with whipped cream on top but been added an extra toffee and nuts on it. I won't say it is disappointing but it sure good to have it while your Christmas mood is swinging in. Aroma is well balanced, the taste is bold and lingers.

The second on the list is the sister of Frappuccino - Toffee Nut Latte. I haven't quite tasted it yet but I can say this - imagine milk coffee with the toffees. Hmmm...I'm imaginating it right now.

The last on the list which I think it should be a popular beverage at the moment is the Dark Cherry Mocha Frappuccino. I remembered last time when they had this Dark Mocha Frapp, which kind of bolder and darker version of Mocha Frapp. It was good but some may find the boldness of chocolate compound was way too heavy. This one will be my next on list of to try stuff and it should be bold but smooth in flavour upon my expectation.

Also, besides the three concurrent beverage of the season, Starbucks is also selling the new coffee bean (not really new, but is a kind of tradition every year) - The Starbucks Christmas Blend. Of what I can remember, this special beans come only around this year. Those beans are gathered from all regions - which make it a mixed or multi-regional coffee beans that have been stored for years.

Well, too bad my Starbucks Passport. Due to my busy and hectic schedule, I barely tried anything new over the past two months. Maybe after the exam or so!! Talking about Christmas beevrage, I just remembered - what happened to the last year's Proline Frappuccino? It was good I remembered.

Well, try the new beverage at the nearest Starbucks Coffee...the ebeverage should be in until January next year before Chinese New Year kicks in.
