Starbucks announces new holiday beverages & festive food

It’s the coziest time of the year with the return of sweater weather and Starbucks holiday beverages and festive food. Beginning Nov. 4, customers can enjoy the Peppermint Mocha (back for its 19th year), the new non-dairy Iced Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte, returning favorite Irish Cream Cold Brew (now available earlier than ever) and handcrafted holiday beverages including the Caramel Brulee Latte, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha and Chestnut Praline Latte. New this year is the Reindeer Cake Pop which joins the Sugar Plum Cheese Danish and other tasty treats including the Cranberry Bliss Bar and Snowman Cookie, all back for another cheerful holiday season.

Enough with the Pumpkin Spice

Enough with the Pumpkin Spice

What started off a few years innocently as a Starbucks seasonal frothy beverage has mushroomed out of control. The Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte was introduced in 2003. You will now find your grocery store littered with pumpkin spice in about just every popular product. From September till the end of October, North America seems to go crazy with the Autumn spice. I think we reached the tipping point with pumpkin spice, enough is enough. There is way too much out there. Personally, I think it has become clickbait for the most outrageous food combos that manufacturers want to promote their year-long products by adding pumpkin spice. Just about restaurant or food establishment has added pumpkin spice to their menu. I hate entering the Christmas Tree Store or Bath and Body Works, it feels like your nose is swimming in pumpkin spice. The best part of the spice is that there is no pumpkin in it. It is a spice for pumpkin pies so that they taste better. Why not just call it the cinnamon spice?
