The Toffee Nut Crunch Latte is finished with a whipped cream peak and a sprinkle of crunchy toffee nut topping. The Toffee Nut Crunch Latte is available as a hot, iced or blended handcrafted beverage.

This year’s Holiday Blend Whole Bean lineup includes the Starbucks® Holiday Blend, Starbucks® Holiday Blend Espresso Roast, and Starbucks® Holiday Blonde Roast.
The Starbucks® Holiday Blend is a 30-year tradition and produces a spicy and sweet cup of coffee with hints of comfort and joy. This Holiday Blend offers distinct flavors of Starbucks rare, spicy Sumatra beans, carefully aged to bring out deep notes of cedar balanced by a sweet, rich smoothness. The Starbucks® Holiday Blend is also available in an Espresso Roast variant, which has a complex flavor profile with intense caramelly sweetness and herbal spiciness. Meanwhile, the Blonde Roast variant embodies a woodsy aroma with hints of brown sugar, sweet orange and allspice notes. (Ed – They only let us try the Blonde Roast at the media preview which I thought was pretty decent.)
The very popular Starbucks Planner returns with the 2020 planner available in three (3) colour variants; Espresso Roast (Brown), Anniversary Blend (Blue) and Siren Edition (Pink, limited quantity). The Starbucks 2020 Planner is redeemable with the purchase of any 15 Grande or Venti-sized Starbucks Beverages – 5 of which must be Starbucks Holiday Beverages – from 5 November onwards. Additionally, the Planner in Anniversary Blend & Espresso Roast can also be purchased separately for RM188.
Starbucks Malaysia is debuting a holiday merchandise collection this year with a new collection of tumblers features woodland animals and holiday motifs, completed by a festive palette of holiday red hues, blues and celebratory pinks and greens.
In addition, the Holiday Starbucks Card series also makes a good gift for coffee lovers. For the first time, Starbucks will also be introducing a paper card into its collection that is in line with its sustainability efforts.
