Christmas in the Philippines is no small affair. It pretty much starts as soon as the 'Ber months set in, and it's marked by a couple of things, like Jose Mari Chan's Christmas in Our Hearts album playing in the background... and of course, coffee shops like Starbucks bringing out their line of seasonal beverages! This year is no exception, as the coffee chain has just announced the drinks for their 2021 holiday lineup—including two returning favorites, as well as newcomers to love.
Check out this year's Starbucks Christmas drinks:
Starbucks is bringing back two well-loved holiday beverages. Fans of buttery, caramel-y flavors can go for the Toffee Nut Crunch, which has toffee nut syrup mixed into the milk and coffee, plus a toffee nut crunch on top! Try it as part of the Toffee Nut Crunch Latte (starts at P180/tall, available hot or iced) for a lush and creamy sip, or try it blended with ice in the Toffee Nut Crunch Frappuccino (starts at P180/tall) or its coffee-free counterpart, the Toffee Nut Crunch Cream Frappuccino (starts at P180/tall). There's even the Toffee Nut Crunch Cold Brew (starts at P185/tall) that's got Starbucks' signature cold brew topped with a toffee-nut foam and garnished with a crunchy toffee-nut topping!
Polarizing as the chocolate-mint tandem can be, it's really not Christmas at Starbucks without it—and the Peppermint Mocha (starts at P180/tall) is thankfully making a comeback, too. You can have it as part of a straightup Peppermint Mocha ( starts at P180/tall, available hot or iced), or blended with ice in the Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino (starts at P180/tall) and the coffee-free Peppermint Chocolate Cream Frappuccino (starts at P180/tall).
You'll also want to give a warm welcome to their newest baby, the Confetti Cookie Latte, which has a toasted-white chocolate syrup mixed in for added creaminess and depth. Adorned with a twinkle topping, this drink is as festive as it gets! Try it in the straightforward Confetti Cookie Latte (starts at P180/tall), available hot or iced; or have it in the ice-blended Confetti Cookie Frappuccino (starts at P180/tall) or its coffee-free sister, the Confetti Cookie Cream Frappuccino (starts at P180/tall).
These drinks are all available from their shops for a limited time only. You can also order these beverages (save for the Toffee Nut Crunch Cold Brew) for delivery via GrabFood or Foodpanda—just note that prices may vary.
