New Starbucks Hawaii Edition Gift Cards

The latest arrivals landing in Hawaii for 2009: A new design for Hawaii Starbucks giftcards…with the Nene goose and Bird of Paradise.
And three newly designed coffee mugs—great for gifts, souvenirs or your daily morning coffee.
While you’re there, check out their holiday drinks: Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha, Eggnog Latte, Espresso Truffle, and Gingerbread Latte.
I learned today that a latte is steamed milk with a shot of espresso. If you can’t drink coffee like me, you can get a hot cup of steamed milk with any of the above flavorings. Tonight I tried their Signature Hot Chocolate. Compared to their ‘regular’ Hot Chocolate, the Signature line is from Europe and tastes a bit richer and creamier. I recommend ordering it with whipped cream to add a thicker texture. You can also order the Signature Hot Chocolate with Salted Caramel.
Each of the drinks mentioned here are a part of the RED line--$0.05 of each drink goes toward the Global Fund to support lives in Africa. (
