LOTS OF LATTES. With a chill in the air, people are flocking to Starbucks to check out their seasonal offerings.

Forget about pumpkin spice and everything nice It is time to welcome the jolly, holly new flavors.

The weather is colder and the leaves are falling from the trees. There is a chill in the air, frost on the ground in the morning, and mist and fog in the air. Dry, dead leaves crunch beneath the feet of othe rs and  clouds appear when a breath comes out.

That can only means one thing. Starbucks holiday menu is back. From peppermint mochas to Iced Sugar Cookie Almond milk lattes, there is a flavor for everyone’s liking. These Christmas drinks along with new holiday treats are the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit from just one sip or bite.

“With the Christmas items back the whole store is getting into the Christmas spirit with decorations and music.” Starbucks barista Kiley Cheatham said “There is a Christmas flavored coffee for everyone’s liking that comes into the store.”

With these festive flavors and pastries being back on the menu, that means the cafe is decorated to impress. Between the Christmas trees and holiday colors everywhere it put everyone into a festive mood. The aroma of peppermint and espresso combined with the Christmas decor brightens everyone’s mood when they walk through the cafe doors.

“Between the chestnut praline latte and the Irish cream cold brew the Christmas spirit is in the air,” Starbucks barista Maio Martinez said. “The store is buzzing with excited customers waiting in line to get their hands on  their holiday drinks.”

Christmas spirit is in the year as soon as you walk through the cafe doors.

“I am so excited to finally get my hands on a toasted white chocolate mocha,” senior Kiaya Crute said. “I’ve been waiting year round for the Christmas flavors to get me through the Holidays.”
