Starbucks Christmas Blend coffee - It tastes great and I like the gift wrapping style package -
What’s with the description on the written on the side?
Maybe I’m taste bud challenged but I just don’t buy into the weird descriptions given to various beverages. People do have different taste and tasting abilities.
Remember the movie, “Sideways”?
Miles character -- [while tasting wine] “ It tastes like the back of a fucking L.A. school bus. Now they probably didn't de-stem, hoping for some semblance of concentration, crushed it up with leaves and mice, and then wound up with this rancid tar and turpentine bullshit. Fuckin' Raid.”
Jack character -- “ Tastes pretty good to me. “
But when I read words like the ones on this package, I believe they are written by a-few-clowns-short-of-a-circus marketing team.
Words from the side of Christmas Blend coffee:
- cedary (growing up our family had a cedar closet and the smell of that wood is interesting but I don’t want it in my coffee)
- syrupy (what should I pour it on my waffles?)
- earthy (dirt?)
- lively coffee (does that mean it has an extra caffeine kick?)
Well if any Starbucks marketing clown reads this, please drop the hype and just tell me what types of coffees are in the blend. I like your coffee not your marketing.
