The New Mermaid Cup at Starbucks Is Shiny, Extra, and Begging to Be Part of Your World
"Look at this
stuff cup. Isn't it neat? Wouldn't you think my collection's complete? Wouldn't you think I'm the girl, the girl who has everything every Starbucks cup known to mankind?"
If I were Disney's Princess Ariel, my version of "Part of Your World" would go a little something like that, now that I've laid eyes on Starbucks's shiny new cold cup. The Venti-sized tumbler features a design that mimics mermaid scales, complete with an iridescent finish that changes colors from blue to green and purple, depending on how the light strikes it. It's undeniably extra, much like the coffee chain's spiked rose gold tumbler from last year, and that's precisely why I'm so obsessed.
Released in tandem with Starbucks's Valentine's Day merch collection, the mermaid-inspired drinking vessel is already a hit among those who frequent the java joint, as they appear to be flying off the shelves faster than you can say "dinglehopper." Snag one for yourself next time you stop in for your morning cup o' Joe before they sell out!
