Christmas in a Cup

This year I believe I am more inspired and prepared for the Christmas season than ever before. This has led to far more blog ideas than I generally come up with. Check back often this month for more Yuletide ponderings and observations.

Today I want to highlight my favorite beverage for Christmas 2008, the Espresso Truffle from Starbucks. Not only is this delicious elixir a joy-inducing concoction beyond expectation, it is also a "compassionate-consumer" product. Teaming with the ( )red initiative to provide care and medicine for AIDS victims in Africa, Starbucks donates a nickel for every one they sell. You can click here to see how many days of medicine have been provided by other consumers. If the winter weather is chilling your bones, go treat yourself to an Espresso Truffle. (Before 6:00pm, that is. You want to allow some time for your metabolism to burn this sucker off!)

I'll have to try that Espresso truffle one of these days. I like the trans-siberian orchestra too. Nathan and I got to see them last year, and they put on an amazing show.
