Starbucks Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino Light Blended Coffee Christmas Special

starbucks christmas drinks

Starbucks has this sign proclaiming that The Christmas Drinks Are Here
in a nicely decorated chalkboard design full of holiday cheer (Joy to
All) at their Midvalley Megamall franchise just now, and we went in to
sample this year’s seasonal lineup while waiting out the heavy rain
earlier this evening.

There are two new offerings for the Christmas season in the
traditional two drink format (one hot drink and one cold one, usually a
frap). There is Crรจme Brulee Latte for the ones who
prefer hot coffee in sizes of Tall, Grande and Venti for RM 11, RM
12.50 and RM 13.50 respectively. The ice blended offering for this
Christmas is the Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino Light Blended Coffee that also comes in sizes of Tall, Grande and Venti for RM 12, RM 13 and RM 14.

The Christmas decorations seems to have been put up too, despite
being still a good month (and then some) away from Christmas day, but
that’s pretty standard since consumerism reigns king for the most
profitable holiday season for most retailers. The airwaves were also
filled with Christmas carols, inspiring a yearning for material
oriented spending in this glorious holiday, which has pretty much lost
its significance a long time ago. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyway, being one to contribute positively to the country’s economy
(er…patronizing Starbucks franchises in Malaysia counts as domestic
spending, right?) I ordered a large (Venti) Peppermint Mocha
Frappuccino Light Blended Coffee. It comes with whipped cream and red
sprinkles on top to add more color to the festive cheer.

The Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino Light Blended Coffee
tastes surprisingly good, despite my initial impression that Starbucks
didn’t seem to be very innovative with this year’s Christmas lineup.
The mocha based Frappuccino retains a strong chocolate taste, and the
strong peppermint sneaks up on you with a strong minty aftertaste with
each drink.

I don’t know what peppermint has to do with Christmas though, but hey, it only happens once a year… ๐Ÿ˜‰

Starbucks AFFOGATO Frappuccino

The AFFOGATO line of Frappuccino is Starbucks latest beverage that
features an interesting shot of espresso being poured into a
Frappuccino. It comes with the tagline “Strange name, wonderful drink” which was what attracted me to this latest version of the Frappuccino.

I just managed to check out the Affogato style Frappuccino last
night at the Starbucks at KL Sentral. The AFFOGATO style Frappuccino
comes into new flavors – Chocolate Cream Frappucino and Caramel Creme
Frappuccino. I got Venti sized ones for both variants to sample.

The AFFOGATO style Frappuccino is differentiated from the usual
offerings in the interesting textures that manifests when a shot of
espresso is dumped into an ice blended drink.

I like the Chocolate Cream Frappuccino – it tastes rich and
satisfying, though the caffeine content wasn’t as high as I would
expect from a double shot Frappuccino…

However, it was the Caramel Creme Frappuccino that I fell in love
with. The Caramel AFFOGATO Frappuccino manages to retain just the right
amount of sweetness and texture to make the drink shine through.

AFFOGATO – Strange name, Wonderful drink. ๐Ÿ˜‰
