This year, Starbucks is coming up with -- guess how many?
15 CHRISTMAS FOOD ITEMS
3 CHRISTMAS BEVERAGES
3 CHRISTMAS BLENDS
I asked Celine Clemente, Starbucks' person in charge of whipping up all the delicious food offerings - why 15? Celine said that they really wanted to give a wider array of food items spanning breads, wraps, cookies and dessert. Okay, I'm not complaining about that, hahaha...
So are you ready now for a mouth-watering trip? Here goes...
CHRISTMAS FOOD OFFERINGS (new)
|Pecan Butterscotch Twirl (Php 85)|
|Hazelnut Stollen Bread (PhP 65/slice, PhP 595 whole)|
Hazelnut Stollen Bread, as you can guess from the name, originates from Germany. It's a German festival bread popular during Christmas but not only in Germany but throughout Europe. It is a sweet yeast bread with toasted hazelnut paste balanced with raisins on the insides.
|S'mores (PhP 70)|
S'mores are made of a buttery graham crust. When you bite into it, taste the gooey melted marshmallow cream and dark chocolate topped with chocolate ganache.
|Triple Decker Cheesecake with Snickers|
(PhP 130/slice, PhP 1250/whole)
The word "triple decker" to describe a cheesecake is enough to make me say "I want!". The Triple Decker Cheesecake with Snickers is loaded with chunks of my favorite Snickers bar in a chocolate cookie crust topped with a chocolate fudge icing and roasted chopped peanuts.
|Warm Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake|
(PhP 110/slice, PhP 950 whole)
The Warm Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake is served warm from the oven. It's your chocolate chip cookie baked into a cake then topped with thick chocolate mousse illed with mini chocolate chip cookies. When you take this in a Starbucks branch, they can put a dollop of whipped cream on top and drizzle it with their very own Starbucks caramel drizzle.
