“Create Wonder and Share Joy with Favorite Seasonal traditions” 2013 Christmas Starbucks promotion from 6 November 2013 ~ 6 January 2014 and i was invited to the Starbucks 1st drive-thru, Tanjung Tokong, Penang to have a fun briefing.

Upon arrival i was assign to team Anniversary blend. There were 5 pax per group. We were brought around different station for brief introduction. 

3 new flavors cakes will be introduced this year. There were Trio Forest, Mango Tango and Midori. Each slice would be priced at RM10.90. The most notably one would be their , a rich moist chocolate cake, stuffed with juicy caramelized dark cherries, topped with a layer of chocolate ganache and beautifully presented with a generous amount of shaved chocolate flakes. The  which had mango slices stuffed between layers of light sponge cake would be ideal to go with the Starbucks® Christmas Blend. The on the other hand was also unique by itself. The trio layered sponge cake had a topping of cream cheese with slathered pistachio dressing.

Beside cake they also have their Starbucks® Seasonal Favorite Coffees (RM40 for 250g coffee beans pack or RM33 for 12 sachets of ready brew packs). It goes really well with the cakes. Bitter fresh brews coffee with sweet cake who can say no to that combo.

New beverage testing counter.

For this season we have Toffee Nut Latte, Toffee Nut Frappuccino® blended beverage, Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino® blended beverage and Cranberry White Chocolate Mocha Frappuccino® blended beverage.

And yeah we get to try all the flavor in the mini cup. 

Mini Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino® blended beverage.

Mini Toffee Nut Latte, Toffee Nut Frappuccino® blended beverage.

Cranberry White Chocolate Mocha Frappuccino® blended beverage. Personally i prefer this as it got some sourness to cut thru the sweetness. 

Next is the card & planner counter.

Limited edition Starbucks® Planner 2014 which has a special compartment to store your iPad. Personally i don't think i will put my iPad onto it. As it just supported with a sticker. It can stick but not sure it can fell off or not it will up to the god :). Priced at RM159 each. But you can get it FOC as well with 15 grande beverage & 3 purchase of the Christmas beverages. If you wan FOC be fast as i tried to get it for FREE years back but it was out of stock. They only gave me a key chain as a gift replacement. 
Yeah i know you want their special Christmas card.

Which one you prefer?

I would choose the snowman, don't they look lovely.
