"Rekindle The Joy" becomes Starbucks Holiday Season 2012 theme. This holiday season started from 12 November 2012 until 6 January 2013.
I was invited to Starbucks Red Cups Gathering 2012 but too bad, I had to go back to work in the middle of this gathering. Thus, I didn't get the chance of trying all this holiday season's beverages and food.
Starbucks Holiday Blend 2012
Christmas Blend Espresso Roasta darker, more intense roast that brings out the rich, caramelly flavor. This sweet, spicy blend is delicious as espresso, brewed or pressed.
Starbucks Holiday Beverage 2012
Same as the previous year 2011
- Cranberry White chocolate - Fruit-forward and chocolaty, topped with real cranberry sauce. It's still my favorite Starbucks holiday beverage.
- Mocha Toffee Nut Latte - Rich and creamy with caramel-nutty flavors.
- Peppermint Mocha - Chocolaty delight with a creamy, peppermint twist.
Starbucks Holiday Food 2012
Chicken Pepper Focaccia Sandwich - Rp. 33.000
I like this sandwich because of the Italian herbs aroma.
Smoked Turkey Ciabatta Sandwich - Rp. 42.000
It tasted bland for my liking.
Stollen - Rp. 24.000/slice
It tasted totally different than the real German Stollen. This Starbucks stollen is just a plain bread with a little of dried fruit and in the middle, there's "fake" marzipan (instead of using real almond to make the marzipan, they used groundnuts with almond essence).
VIA Snow Flake Land - Rp. 17.500
Bread Pudding - Rp. 17.000
Limited edition of Starbucks Nutcracker Bearista - Rp. 200.000
