Limited Christmas Grabs!

Ho ho ho! Christmas is here once again! Season for gift giving, loving and forgiving, not to mention Limited Christmas Muchers! Christmas had always been one of my favorite holidays, not just because of the gifts but because everybody gets a bit nicer on December. haha. (At least some peeps gets to be a bit nice for at least a month!) Haven't been going out that much, but when I do, I check out what's new around town! So now, am on the hunt for Christmas Grabs - grabs and munchers that are offered only during the festive holiday season - Christmas! Below are a list of what I have tried so far!

1. Red Ribbon's Choco Mango Mousse -
Trying it out with a date, it definitely was a magical treat! Red Ribbon's Holiday offering to it's patrons - Choco Mango Mousse! It's  made of creamy mango mousse with mango bits on top of chocolate mousse and moist chocolate pound cake and embraced with Chocolate Ganache! Then finishing off with a scoop of Mango and Chocolate shaving. Priced at 70php per slice and 700 for the whole cake! I would also recommend their Choco Fudge Cake! Yum! 

2. CoffeeBean's Holiday Harvest - Apple Caramel Ice Blended. Well, I am not a fan of Coffee Bean's Ice Blends because they have a strong powdery base which is very distinguishable in all of their non coffee ice blends. So sadly am not a fan of their Christmas Drink! Another thing that's disappointing is that there's no whip included yet as shown on their table ads. :( You have to pay extra for the whip.  Priced at around 150php. Coffeebean also have the Planner Promo wherein you get a 2011 planner once you complete 24 stamps. 1 beverage = 1 stamp.

3. Starbucks Christmas Specials - Peppermint Mocha, Toffeenut and Praline Mocha! Probably the most exciting drinks of the season that my friends and I are crazy about, waiting every November for it to be available again. And with every drink you get a sticker and once you complete all the stickers on the Starbucks Christmas Card you get a 2011 Planner. This year you need 18 stickers (9 christmas Special and 9 regular starbucks drink) to get the Planner. 1 beverage = 1 sticker.
