The Holidays arrived at Starbucks stores on Thursday, November 7, 2019 with the return of Peppermint Mocha and four new holiday cups.
“Starting tomorrow (Nov. 7) Starbucks stores in the United States and Canada will be decked out for the holidays with a fun and festive design worthy of that first sip of Peppermint Mocha (not to mention Toasted White Chocolate Mocha, Caramel Brulée Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte and Eggnog Latte),” Starbucks said in their announcement.
Here’s what Starbucks fans will find on Thursday:
New Holiday Cups. After creating over 50 designs to consider, Starbucks designers landed on a series of four designs in shades of red, white and Starbucks signaturegreen. The four cups (see photo above) available in stores starting Nov. 7 are:
- Merry Stripes: From a distance, this cup looks like it’s wrapped in green vintage wrapping paper. But up close, its tiny type offers a happy sentiment.
- Merry Dance: A lively pairing of red and green letters jazz up a snowy white cup with a joyful expression.
- Polka Dots: The traditional Starbucks red cup is dotted with green, with the Siren logo playfully popping in here and there.
- Candy Cane Stripes: The colors of the holiday all come together with this design as the Starbucks wordmark falls like snow against stripes of candy cane red and white.
Return of Holiday Beverages. Starbucks stores in the United States and Canada will be decked for the holidays starting Nov. 7 to mark the return of the seasonal flavors of Peppermint Mocha, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha, Caramel Brulée Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, and Eggnog Latte. All are available hot, iced and Frappuccino blended beverages.
Red reusable cup. Users with the limited-edition reusable red cup will get 50 cents off each 16 oz handcrafted holiday beverage now through January 7, 2019.
Holiday Food. On Thursday the holiday food items are here, including Holiday Turkey & Stuffing Panini, Cranberry Bliss Bar, Sugar Plum Cheese Danish, Snowman Cookie, Gingerbread Loaf, Peppermint Brownie Cake Pop, and Snowman Cake Pop.
Some additional ways Starbucks is celebrating the Holidays:
Instagram Stories: When customers snap a photo of a Starbucks cup through Instagram Stories, the photo will reveal special augmented reality effects that bring the Starbucks Holiday spirit to life! Learn how it works here.
Alaska Airlines Priority: From November 7-10, all guests who show up to the gate with a Starbucks Holiday cup will receive priority boarding. Even more, guests on select West Coast flights will be surprised when they board a new holiday-themed aircraft, and some lucky passengers might find surprise Starbucks treats on their seats.
