Starbucks Peppermint Mocha is a big part of the holiday experience for me. I eagerly await it being available again. It is the perfect taste for the season. I always associate peppermint with Christmas. It is the scent and flavor of the holiday season.
The drink is so rich and chocolatey with that bite of peppermint. It tastes like they melted a Girl Scout Thin Mint cookie. And then put whipped cream and chocolate chips on top. It just feels good in my mouth. And it scents my car with that yummy chocolate, mint, coffee smell.
I live in a place that it is starting to get cold by Christmas so this warm rich drink feels extra comforting. My son loves the Pumpkin Spice Latte but has to order the Peppermint Mocha when it gets close to Christmas.
At this point the taste and smell of a Peppermint Mocha makes me think of the holidays. I like to stop by and get one while I am out Christmas shopping. It is the perfect pick me up after fighting the crowds and the cold.
So , for me, Starbucks and the Peppermint Mocha are part of what I love about the holidays. It is rich and warm and comforting. Do you love it too? Or is Pumpkin Spice Latte your favorite?
