Starbucks Holiday


     Winter is fast approaching! And with Halloween in the past, it’s time to get ready for Christmas and the joyful holiday season! Starbucks is always the go-to place for holiday-themed drinks, and they’ve already got their newest flavors in-store!

     Starbucks’ menu is officially overrun by Christmas. In addition to the normal cake pops, a new snowman pop has been added, as well as an iced snowman cookie. There is also a new Cranberry Orange Scone on the menu, and a Cranberry Bliss Bar. 

     But, most importantly, are their new drinks! There is a new variety of frappuccinos and lattes, including a Toasted White Chocolate Mocha and a Chestnut Praline Latte. Plus, hot chocolate for chilly days. I recently went to the small Starbucks inside the Citrus Plaza Target with my mom to try out some of their new drinks. I tried the decaf Pumpkin Spice Latte but found I didn’t like it very much because of the strong coffee taste. I haven’t ever had coffee in my life; my only taste of it before has been the Jelly Belly bean or a sip of it when I was little. So, I didn’t enjoy my mom’s choice -the Chestnut Praline- either. The only part I found tasty was the whipped cream on my latte, which had spice sprinkled on top to make it taste just like pumpkin pie! My mom enjoyed her drink but found that the Pumpkin Spice was too sweet for her. 

     These were just my thoughts on the drinks -try them out for yourself!
