From Friday, December 14 to Sunday, December 16, Starbucks is offering BOGO free drinks, so the weekend just got even better.
The promotion is for buy one, get one free espresso beverages (size grande or larger) and hot chocolates (any size) after 3 p.m. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. So treat your friend to a coffee on Friday, and they can return the favor Saturday?
Per usual, you’ll get the offer if you’ve signed up for Starbucks Happy Hour or are a Starbucks Rewards program member. If you’re signed up for Happy Hour, you will get a code via email to use at your local Starbucks, and Starbucks Reward members are notified by email.
During the holidays, it’s easier than ever for eating to become overindulgence. Whether it’s Halloween or Hanukah, there are just so many special treats that you can convince yourself only come around once a year. But there are always healthier options, and even shaving back on a handful of calories during each holiday can make a big difference. To see what the experts do during the holidays, check out what 10 registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) skip during the holidays, and the healthier food they opt for instead.
Well, the weather outside isn’t quite frightful just yet, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start thinking about warm evenings by the fire (if you have one of those) with a mug of hot chocolate.
If you’re not in the mindset yet, the Hershey’s Kisses brand sure is. Last week, the chocolatiers behind Grandma’s shiny green-and-red candy bowl announced its first new flavor in a decade: Hot Cocoa.
The new Kisses have a marshmallow cream center, which is surrounded by a “rich hot cocoa plume,” making them an ideal candy imitation of the beloved holiday beverage.
Hershey’s sent Genius Kitchen a bag to try, and we found the candies to be very, very sweet, to say the least. The chocolate exterior did remind us of a solid pouch of Swiss Miss cocoa, while the white center was more milky than marshmallowy. We would have been even more jazzed if the interior was actual marshmallow, but overall we found it to be a solid addition to the holiday candy bowl.
Also available this holiday season will be the traditional Kisses in red, white and green, as well as white chocolate candy cane Kisses. Refreshing!
Hershey’s holiday Kisses will be available beginning November 1st at all major retailers, nationwide.
