The holidays are here! Well, they are at Starbucks, anyway. The coffee retailer has debuted their holiday cups for 2019 and they are so festive. The four new designs will make you feel kinds of merry and bright.
Here's a breakdown of the four new designs: there's Polka Dots, Merry Dance, Merry Stripes, and Candy Cane Stripe. According to the official press release from Starbucks, they designs are meant to “evoke mini moments of joy for our customers and partners – it’s fun, festive and uniquely Starbucks.”
For the Starbucks traditionalist, the Polka Dots design is a new take on the classic Starbucks red holiday cup. This year, though, the classic design is spiced up a bit with green circles and Starbucks siren logo in multiple spots on the cup. It's a fun update on something all Starbucks have come to love and look forward to around the holidays every year.
The Merry Dance cup will definitely be one of the more eye-catching designs this holiday season. A simple white cup is brought to life with a big, bright overlay of red and green letters that spell out MERRY COFFEE repeatedly. This is perfect for those Starbucks customers who need their coffee before they can start feeling holly and jolly.
The Merry Stripes design is a dark green cup which features small white lettering wrapping around the cup like falling snow and spells out "merry coffee" again. Merry Coffee is definitely going to be the new greeting of the season this year.
Last but not least, the Candy Cane Stripes cup is a big, bold design showcasing thick red and white stripes. The Starbucks wordmark “falls like snow” in large green block lettering.
The cups will be available in Starbucks locations nationwide alongside fan-favorite holiday drink flavors, such as Peppermint Mocha, Toasted White Chocolate, Caramel Brulee Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, and Eggnog Latte. The cups and holiday menu will be available starting Thursday (November 7).
