Starbucks red cups and holiday drinks are back starting Friday.
And there’s a way to get a reusable collectible holiday cup Friday for free. To get the freebie, order any size handcrafted holiday beverage while supplies last.
Handcrafted holiday and fall beverages included are: Caramel Brulee Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, Eggnog Latte, Hot Chocolate, Peppermint Hot Chocolate, Peppermint Mocha, Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew, Pumpkin Cream Nitro Cold Brew, Pumpkin Spice Latte, Salted Caramel Cream Cold Brew, Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate, Salted Caramel Mocha and Toasted White Chocolate Mocha. The drinks can be ordered hot, iced or blended as a Frappuccino.
“Our thought behind the cups this year was about people carrying them out in the world as messengers of joy,” Jeff Wilkson, Starbucks creative director, said in a statement. “In a way that message deepened as we got further and further into this year. We want to be that beacon for people, a brief moment that they can look forward to.”
Festive food items are also coming, including the new Cranberry Orange Scone, Cranberry Bliss Bar, Sugar Plum Cheese Danish, Snowman Cookie, and Snowman Cake Pop.
It’s that time of year for a seasonal change of beverages
Dunkin’ brought back its winter seasonal drinks Wednesday which include the Peppermint Mocha Latte and Gingerbread Latte.
