Christmas drinks become more like desserts every year
Pretty soon, we'll be scooping them up instead of slurping them.
(SPOT.ph) You know Christmas is just around the corner when you see signs that the "red cups" are coming. Starbucks' notorious Christmas blends will be available on November 2 (and selling until January 7), but the coffee chain is already building a lot of anticipation.
Joining the ranks of the elusive Peppermint Mocha and Toffee Nut Latte is a new brew: the Christmas Panettone Latte (P155/Short, P165/Tall, P180/Grande, P190/Venti; Frappuccino P175/Tall, P185/Grande, P195/Venti). Taking its cue from a type of fruit-dotted Italian dessert bread, this luscious number finds a sweeter reward with the addition of dried fruits! It really sounds more like a dessert to us.

CBTL's Toffee Nut
Meanwhile, The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf has already launched their tasty holiday line. Making a comeback is the now cult classic, vanilla-heavy Winter Dream Tea. CBTL is also introducing their version of a toffee nut latte, a sensational, buttery blend with hints of nut and caramelized sugar.
Other coffee chains like Costa Coffee and Seattle's Best have yet to release their Christmas drinks.
