Perfect Pairings with Lindt and Starbucks

(Note:  This post is Sponsored by Starbucks® as part of the #StarbucksPerfectPairing  #ad.)

I’m not sure about you, but somehow, the holidays totally snuck up on me this year.

I sear I was thinking ahead in August, making my Christmas lists, even searching online, feeling so good about how ahead I was, and then, the wind blew, and here we are in December and I am no closer to having my holiday shopping done than I was in the summer.

But now it’s crunch time.

What’s worse, it seems, is that everyone these days seems to have everything they want or need. Or, if they want it, they just go get it themselves.  I know I do.  I know my family does.  In fact, most of the people I have to buy for this year are pretty much the easiest people to please and yet the most difficult to buy for.

I’ll save all of those folks for another time.  Just…tooooo much right now! Lol!

We ALL have those others to buy for – you know the ones…the school teacher. The postman.  The neighbor you wave at but rarely speak to because he’s from Hungary and you speak not one word of Hungarian. Halloo, Nayboor.  Haloooo.

What do we buy  THESE people?


Lucky for us, I was turned on to Target and the PERFECT Gift for such folks.

Starbucks® and Lindt.

That’s right! Starbucks and Lindt have teamed up to make the Perfect Pairing this holiday season, and not only are they providing a dose of delicious that everyone can enjoy, they’re offering it at special pricing.

Of course, you can mix and match as YOU see fit (you know you, after all!) but here are the pairings Starbucks feels make the most wow factor:

  • Starbucks Peppermint Mocha Caffe Latte K-Cup paired with Lindt LINDOR Peppermint Cookie Milk Chocolate Truffles
  • Starbucks Holiday Blend Packaged Coffee or K-Cups paired with Lindt LINDOR Milk Chocolate Truffles
  • Tazo Chai Classic Latte Concentrate paired with Lindt LINDOR Peppermint White Chocolate Truffles
  • VIA Peppermint Mocha paired with Lindt LINDOR Peppermint White Chocolate Truffles


Me?  I chose the VIA Peppermint Mocha and Lindor Peppermint White Chocolate Truffles.  It was all available in Target, right there for the taking.  You can even save yourself the putting on of pants, and order right from your computer at Target Online.  While you are shopping though, mosey on and take a look at oversized mugs to give with these great coffees and chocolates.  Maybe add a personal ornament?  Who knows,  after a gift like that,  you may find yourself in the cul-de-sac in a few weeks, sharing a morning coffee as you drag in those trash cans, and Hungarian Neighbor may give you a quick lesson in Hungarian.

I think that’s very worth the little effort, don’t you?
