Yup, of course I have another mug to share with you this month! I am a big fan of Expedition Roasters coffee, and one of my absolute favorites is the seasonal peppermint mocha. Each of their coffees is inspired by a Disney attraction, and this one is based on It’s a Small World. The name (The Happiest Brew that Ever Sailed) and the design on the bag are both reminiscent of that attraction, but with a bit of a Christmas twist.
This year they also introduced a mug with the same design on it. When I saw you could get a bundle with the coffee and the mug, of course I had to go for it for December. If you’ve ever seen It’s a Small World in Disneyland decorated for the holidays, you’ll know how beautiful it looks with all of the lights. It definitely has a pinkish/reddish coloring to it, so that’s the colors on this mug.
The facade of It’s a Small World has a very geometric styling to it, with squares and triangles. It also incorporates several symbols you’d expect to see on the attraction, such as the flower silhouettes. The coloring of this mug is perfect for Christmas and Candy Canes!
Get your mug (or other coffee from Expedition Roasters) here! Currently you can still purchase the coffee and mug, though it is a seasonal item so it may not be around much longer. However, be on the lookout for it next year!
What’s in my mug: Of course I am drinking my Happiest Brew peppermint mocha! Next year I’ll have to buy two bags, because I’m running low. I probably have enough left for one more mug, so I’m going to save that for Christmas morning! You can definitely tell that it’s a peppermint mocha flavor, but it’s not overpowering with either peppermint or chocolate. It’s subtle but there, and delicious. It also goes perfectly with my chocolate peppermint cookies!
What I’m currently reading: I was part of a Secret Santa exchange this year, and my gift was perfect! It’s a book called The Traveler’s Guide to Batuu. It’s basically what it says: a travel guide to Galaxy’s Edge. However, it’s written from the perspective of actually being “in world”, which I really like. It doesn’t make reference to Disney World – this book treats it as if you were actually visiting the planet of Batuu. It also has some history of the planet and some of the things you see at Galaxy’s Edge there. I haven’t finished it but I’m enjoying it so far. It’s not long so it’s a quick read but a nice keepsake for fans and a good way to learn a little bit more if you’re really interested!
What mug are you using right now? And what are you currently reading?
