ATTENTION ALL COFFEE DRINKERS!! It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Starbucks! As of November 2nd, Starbucks has officially announced their new holiday cups for 2018! This year, there are four new cups and special Christmas time drinks to bring on the holiday cheer.

The first cup is called the “Stargyle” sweater cup. The Stargyle cup resembles everyone’s favorite ugly Christmas sweater reimagined into a fashionable, green cup with stars all over it (because, you know, STARbucks).

Another cup is the Espresso Houndstooth cup. This cup is a play on the coming back, fashionable Houndstooth pattern. The white, wispy pattern against the red is meant to resemble a fireplace, and bring a warm, cheerful Christmas spirit to all coffee drinks.

The third cup is a two toned red color cup. This cup is somewhat similar to the 2015 controversial red cup. This cup is striped in two tones of red, and hopefully won’t spark any backlash for its simplicity like it did in the past.

The last cup is the flora design. This cup is adorned with holly berry bushes along with the coffee cherry plant. This cup has bright red berries on it to represent both plants, and combine coffee with holiday cheer.
