PRESS RELEASE | Holidays have arrived at Starbucks! by Jenn Chan



This year, Starbucks has unveiled its first colour-in holiday cup, available at Starbucks in Canada and the U.S. beginning November 1st, 2017. The holiday cup art is a hand illustration depicting scenes of the season, including a pair of hands holding red cups of coffee as a centering point, a symbol of connection, love and giving joy. Recognizing that traditions aren’t universal, they’re personal, Starbucks has intentionally left room in the design where others can colour, doodle and sketch in what the season means to them. Starbucks most inclusive cup to date is waiting for your unique holiday designs.  


What would the holidays at Starbucks be without a selection of seasonal beverages to keep you cozy? Below you’ll find information on Starbucks holiday food and beverage including returning favourites such as Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brûlé Latte, Eggnog Latte, Gingerbread Latte and new lattes including Chestnut Praline Tea Latte and the American Nuevo.
