christmas blend

I have a friend who works for Starbucks, and she claims that their Christmas Blend and their Holiday Blend are the exact same coffee–out of the same grinding machine and everything. Evidently, one’s packaged for the Christmas-averse crowd in a soothing blue and white package, and the other is full of bright red holiday cheer. If this is indeed true, it’s an irritating piece of marketing brilliance.
