Do Jews Not Drink Decaf?

These descriptions leave no doubt as to the fact that Starbucks Hanukkah Holiday Blend is simply Starbucks Christmas Blend repackaged in a shmaltzy blue wrapper.

Starbucks Holiday Blend: First introduced in 1984, this seasonal offering combines the liveliness of superb Latin American coffees with the mellow smoothness of Asia/Pacific coffees, including some rare, aged Indonesian beans. Holiday Blend is spicy. The aged coffees add complexity to this blend that reminds people of exotic spices. Enjoy Holiday Blend with your favorite holiday foods such as ginger bread.
