Starbucks Holiday Drinks Are Back Along With New Red Cup Designs

Starbucks Holiday Drinks Are Back Along With New Red Cup Designs

By Thomas Kenzaki

Now that pesky Halloween is behind us, businesses are full steam ahead into the holiday season. Starbucks is one of the first out of the gate by releasing their delicious and addictive holiday drinks and also introducing a new twist to their famous Red Cups.

Starting November 2nd you’ll be able to once again enjoy delicious holiday drinks such as the Caramel Brulée Latte, Peppermint Mocha, and Eggnog Latte. These winter favourites will surely put you into the spirit of the season and give you a nice caffeine buzz or sugar high.

Hop on over to Starbucks on November 2nd for a holiday drink!

In addition to the holiday drinks, Starbucks is also changing up their traditional Red Cup design. Instead of just one specially designed cup, this year we have 4! Each design adds a unique festive touch and gives you even more options to curate your social media feeds with.

Starbucks is also kicking off the holiday season with a special promotion. The first 50 customers who buy a holiday drink on November 2nd will receive a free reusable Red Cup. For more details on that you can view our front page post here.

We expect that McDonald’s and Tim Hortons special holiday cups will be soon to follow. Are you a fan of Starbucks holiday drinks? Let us know in the comments below.

    • So is there no way to figure out who is participating?

    • I like the red cup and all but the white one is sold for $2. I mean it’s free but not sure I’ll take the time to go in just for this.

    • Looks like there's an additional perk too:
      Customers who bring their reusable holiday cup to a participating Starbucks company-owned or licensed store in the U.S. or Canada after 2 p.m. Nov. 3 to Jan. 7 will get $0.50 off their handcrafted grande (16-ounce) holiday beverage.

      Corporate stores are participating, franchise stores are not. So, those inside Safeway, Chapters, universities, hospitals, etc are not included.

      They show you're in league with the devil and are a soldier in his army waging the war on Christmas. Also they're pretty nice and are a semi-collectible.

      Re-read the whole tweet before going in the store to ask for the free cup:
      Tomorrow only, the first 50 customers at participating stores receive a free #reusable #RedCup when they buy a handcrafted holiday beverage.

      I think you should be able to buy it at places like Canadian Tire, Winners, Walmart? etc. They're often used as company promos I think where they put their logos on it

      You're right. How i look at it (and I could be wrong) - anybody that's running to get these were probably going to going to SB anyway to get the holiday drinks.

    • I do love the holiday drinks but the earliest I could go tomorrow is 8am. So I'm not sure if I should even try.

    • I wouldn't mind the cup... Which are the holiday drinks? I normally just get a black Pike or blonde..

      Also I could be late for work if I go to Starbucks.. they only open at 6am and I try to be on the road already.
