Starbucks unveils holiday cups and new festive drinks (PHOTOS)

It’s the most wonderful time of the year – you know – the point when we completely season jump because we can’t wait for one holiday to be over before we start preparing for another one.

Basically, fall is so yesterday, and to prove winter is officially the new hot topic, Starbucks just unveiled their highly-anticipated festive offerings for the holidays.

The pièce de résistance is always the holiday cups themselves, and this year they don’t disappoint.

Last year we got the brand’s first-ever colour-in holiday cup, giving customers to opportunity to create one-of-a-kind designs, but for 2018 the coffee giant has gone totally classic with retro-graphic patterns.

Starbucks has four new cup designs featuring patterns developed from the Starbucks Christmas blend coffee packaging.

The chain will also be releasing a limited edition Reusable Red Cup, Starbucks will be offering  FREE reusable red holiday cup to customers who purchase a holiday beverage on November 2 (while supplies last).

Between November 2 and January 7, anyone who orders a holiday beverage with their reusable red cup will get $0.50 off their drink order.

The new holiday beverage this year is called the Juniper Latte. This “woodsy beverage” joins holiday drinks like the Gingerbread Latte, the Eggnog Latte, and the Peppermint Mocha, along with brand new festive eats like Chocolate Swirl Brioche and the Pistachio Honey Croissant for a limited time in stores.

The cups and the festive drinks and eats will be available for customers across the country starting November 2.
