Starbucks Released 4 New Holiday Cups, and We Can't Pick a Favorite
Starbucks's holiday cups have arrived, and ho-ho-holy smokes, are they cute! On Nov. 7, the coffee chain began celebrating the most wonderful time of the year by offering four new cup designs that'll spread Christmas cheer as much as Buddy the Elf's caroling does. Whereas last year's cups evoked more retro vibes, the latest patterns are classic and playful, featuring festive pops of red, white, and green.
There's a red cup with green polka-dots, a candy cane striped one with "Starbucks" written in large green text, a green one with "Merry Coffee" written in small white letters, and a white one with "Merry Coffee" written in red and green slanted font. Son of a nutcracker — we can't possibly pick a favorite.
Starbucks also just rereleased a handful of fan-favorite holiday beverages, including the Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brulee Latte, Toasted White Chocolate, Chestnut Praline Latte, and Eggnog Latte. Any Starbucks customers who order one of these seasonal drinks on Nov. 7 will be given a free reusable holiday cup, which earns you 50 cents off any grande holiday beverage ordered after 2 p.m. between Nov. 7 and Jan. 7. The coffeehouse offered the same one-day giveaway for the first time last year and the plastic cups quickly ran out at many locations, so may the odds be ever in your favor if you have your sights set on snagging one.
