I am a brand ambassador for Central Arkansas McDonald’s. While I am being compensated for this post all thoughts and opinions are my own.
I can’t believe it’s already November. Where has this year gone?? I realize that at this point I sound like a broken record because I feel like I say that every month but I mean it this month. It’s already November, which means next month is December, which means it’s almost Christmas!!!
<Insert freak out mode now.>
I don’t know about you but I used to be on top of my Christmas shopping game and was even one of those people who shopped for Christmas gifts during the summer months. Now I’m doing good to get my shopping done before Christmas Eve. Maybe it’s because I haven’t put up an actual Christmas tree since the year I forgot about it and somehow left it up until March?? I seriously think that was 5 years ago…oops!
So this year I am determined to get my Christmas Spirit back and one thing that always gets me going is sipping on a Christmas-y beverage while getting my shop on and listening to Christmas music, cause you know that’s all that is playing in stores right now! There isn’t any better feeling than shopping for other people, marking things off your to-do list and enjoying a Christmas-y beverage all at the same time!!
One of my favorite Christmas-y beverages is McDonald’s Peppermint Mocha. It’s not overly pepperminty like some drinks but still gives you a nice little kick. It’s also not overly chocolate like some places tend to do…more chocolate is not always better. I can’t believe I just said that but in the case of fancy coffee drinks that is absolutely true.
One thing I love about McDonald’s Peppermint Mocha in particular is that it’s made with espresso beans that are sustainably sourced from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms. You can read more about that in a blog post I wrote here. I don’t know about you but I love knowing that every time I purchase a McCafe drink I am helping a farmer from across the world!
If you are like me and are lacking a little Christmas Spirit then go grab yourself a LARGE Peppermint Mocha from McDonald’s and go walk through Target! It’s like Christmas blew up in there and their Christmas music is always on point! Sing along to the music if you want, grab some gorgeous (and affordable!!) Christmas decor, sip on your Peppermint Mocha and let all that warm, fuzzy Christmas goodness seep into your soul. You can thank me later.
Is your Christmas Spirit lacking??
Have you tried McDonald’s Peppermint Mocha??
