Starbucks Philippines Christmas 2015–new cards, food, beverage, coffee and planner 2016 (launch date: Nov 2, 2015)

Starbucks Philippines - Chirstmas 2015 edition

Starbucks coffee and food lovers, the moment that we are waiting for the Christmas Edition of Starbucks already unveiled their surprise yesterday, It consists of new drinks, food, new cards, new coffee and also new 2016 planner. I gave a tease in my Facebook post and I observed that many of my Facebook friends and followers are also excited for the Christmas edition launch of Starbucks Philippines.

Im very excited to try and indulge myself with their original Christmas flavor, Im happy that they brought back the Chicken Fajita and the turkey wrap, I waited for years to get another taste of their turkey wrap. For the beverage, we expect to see the crowd favorite Peppermint Mocha and Toffee Nut Latte, but the new drinks to try is the Christmas Panettone Latte, imagine a coffee drink with bits of dried fruits on top just like a Christmas fruit cake.

The most awesome part for Starbucks is that they are launching two kinds of pasta for this holiday… OMG!! thanks so much, its so rare to see a pasta in their food item line up.

This coming November 2015 up to January 2016, they are bringing in 5 returning food items and 9 new food items. Wow! that’s a lot and also good news for Starbucks collectors for this year because Starbucks Philippines will launch 6 new Starbucks cards for the holiday, that’s the big number of cards to be launch for this year and they added the cards design with collaboration with artist Anna Sui and also with luxury jeweler Swarovski.

For the much awaited 2016 planner, the Philippines will also have the Starbucks x Moleskine 2016 planner, its an Asia Pacific release and it will start its launch this coming November 2.
