Add These To Your Christmas Food Hoard

Can you hear the sleigh bells ringing? With only weeks away from Christmas, restaurants, cafés, snack bars, and other beloved foodie places are clamoring to excite their patrons with new Yuletide offerings filled with festive flavors and enticing wrappers in every shade of green and red! From superb sweets to bountiful dishes for sharing, let this week’s mash up gleefully remind you of those carefree days when you still believed in Santa Claus, and sugar never hurt your waistline. No matter what your fitness goals are though, there is no diet that can hold a candle against the joys of Christmas (over)eating.

This coffee giant is back with its annual Christmas treats and a race for their coveted planners. Let the classic combination of velvety steamed milk, espresso, and buttery toffee nut syrup of Starbucks’ new Toffee Nut Crunch Latte, the minty and sweet candy notes of Christmas Tree Peppermint Dark Mocha, and the confectionary-meets-coffee Vanilla Nougat Latte transport you to cold December feels reminiscent of foreign holiday films. If you’re looking for a chewier nibble, go for their Milk and Chocoloate Pudding, Ham & Egg on Brioche Bun, and Rocky Road Cookies. For coffee aficionados and regular Starbucks patrons, these will surely be a nice twist to your next order!
