Despite my 3:30 a.m. wake-up time, I’m not a coffee drinker. But when December rolls around, I roll into Starbucks for its Cranberry Bliss Bar, with a moist brownielike crust, an orange zest kick, and sweet cream-cheese icing topped with dried cranberries. It tastes best when you nuke it in the microwave for exactly 8.5 seconds. I know what I’ll be bringing to the O holiday party this year.
