Ah, the Starbucks holiday cups have had quite the evolution over the years.
From 1997 to 2017, the traditionally-themed “red cups” have evolved from a red cup featuring holiday designs like ornaments and snowmen, to solid red cups, and then to last year’s red cups with submitted designs from Starbucks fanatics.
And it is no question that the cups have been quite the source of coffee-cup controversy.
But this year – starting Wednesday, Nov. 1 – you can determine the colors of your holiday cup. Because when you get it, it will be mostly white, black and ready for you to color.
And you are not limited to red or green.
“This year’s cup is intentionally designed to encourage our customers to add their own color and illustrations,” said Leanne Fremar, executive creative director for Starbucks in a release. “We love the idea of everyone making this year’s cup their own.”
The color-in coffee cup features a pair of hands holding red cups of coffee along with ribbons, presents, snowflakes and a Christmas tree.
You can fill your holiday cup with holiday-themed drinks including the Chestnut Praline Latte, Caramel Brulee Latte and Peppermint Mocha.
