Christmas Blends

Holidays is just around the corner and it only means one thing in Tim’s world: Starbucks Christmas Blends is yet again up for grabs for coffee lovers out there. I’ve noticed people carrying these new fancy Starbucks red paper cups all over the metro. This year, Starbucks introduces a new flavor from its roster of Christmas Blends: Praline Mocha (sounds nutty) and old favorites, Peppermint Mocha and Toffee Nut Latte (my personal favorite…hence the theme of my blog) was retained from last year’s blends.

Starbucks Christmas Blends can only mean one thing too = Starbucks Planner 2008. People will once again turn into this manic hordes of coffee monsters and flock into the nearest Starbucks coffee shops and collect stickers to redeem the much-awaited planner that they hardly ever need nor use. If I sounded ranting, I wasn’t. See, chances are, you’ll spot yours truly in one of those shops purchasing coffee. The only difference is…I ain’t after the planner. It’s the coffee that I’m interested in. Just so happens that I get them planners from the number of cups I consume the whole season. What should I do with those stickers and stubs? Every coffee-lover I know collects and aims for the prize, and they take pride in achieving their goals with their own blood and money. So might as well, right? This year the stub needs 24 stickers: half regular drinks, half Christmas Blends. Promo starts November 6, 2007 until January 15, 2008.

Last year, there was a shortage (oh please not this time) of Toffee Nut Latte by mid-December and planners were out of stock even before Christmas time came. This year, it’ll probably be the same. I just hope that like last year, those wonderful people who gave me P2,000-worth of Starbucks Gift Certificates remembers that I was “good” the whole year. Hehehe…(--,)
