Get ready for the Starbucks #RedCups!

My Friday lunchtime was quite exciting last week, as I got to have a little sneak preview of Starbucks' new Christmas range and, more importantly, the red cups are coming back with a brand new flavour! I also need to add that this is my first blogger event that I've been to in literally years... I've forgotten just how much I enjoy attending events like these!

As soon as I arrived at Starbucks in Selfridges, Birmingham, I spotted the gorgeous festive decor that instantly got me in the Christmas spirit (in October)!

'Sparkle' seems to be a big theme for Starbucks this year, with baubles, garlands and so much shimmery gold goodness dotted around. The new gold sparkly thermal mugs and cups, which you can buy, are gorgeous too and I'm so pleased that got to take one home!

I was introduced to some yummy festive goodies, including chocolate and cherry muffins, ginger loaf, cranberry, white chocolate and orange cookies AND of course some luxury mince pies.

We also got to try out Starbucks' signature Christmas Blend coffee. Now, I'm not a fan of coffee at all, and not even a fan of Christmas spices, so I guess you could say I wasn't a fan of this. However, if you love your Christmassy spices then this would be right up your street as the blend really hits you!

The highlight was discovering the new red cup flavour... honey and almond hot chocolate. I was a bit nervous that I wouldn't like this as I'm not that fond of honey or almonds (okay, okay, I'm beyond fussy). However it was so delicious and such a perfect addition to the range this year. I think the best part of it is the gold sprinkles on top. Gold shimmer sugar is possibly my favourite thing ever right now.

For those of you that have been pretty jealous of me having one of the first red cups of the year - don't fear, you can get the new honey and almond hot chocolate, along with the classic eggnog latte, toffee nut latte and gingerbread latte, from 4th November!
