The holiday season is in full swing! Well, according to Starbucks that is. The beloved coffee chain is ready to get festive with its holiday menu and beloved red cups, hitting stores this week.
Get ready to sip on your favourite Starbucks holiday drinks and taste those festive treats, starting November 3. Expect fan faves like Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brûlé Latte Chestnut Praline Latte, and sugar Cookie Oat Latte – which are all available hot, iced, and as a frap.
And back for another season is the chain’s Irish Cream Cold Brew, and Irish Cream Americano – a Canadian exclusive.
As for treats, you can expect to see its Cranberry Bliss Bar, Gingerbread Loaf, and Peppermint Brownie Cake Pop back on the menu this holiday season. But what is a Starbucks’ holiday experience without its beloved cup designs?
According to the chain, this year there are four new holiday cup designs that are sure to “offer the comforts and cheer of the season” as they are each designed as a gift.
“We have always talked about the cups as gifts, and we hope they feel like a holiday present to our customers,” said Gary Jacobson, Starbucks creative director for this year’s holiday campaign.
“We are really focused on creating a joyful experience throughout the entire Starbucks experience – whether a customer is visiting at our drive-thru or in our café,” said Jacobson. “Whatever we can touch, we wanted to make sure that we make someone’s day a little bit brighter in a holiday way.”
And as always, you can bring the holidays home with Starbucks holiday-flavoured roast and ground-packaged coffees like its Holiday Blend and Christmas Blend.
Also keep an eye out for its new limited-edition holiday merch like its iconic colourful cold cups, tumblers, and mugs too.
If this doesn’t put you into the holiday spirit, we don’t know what will! There’s nothing like sipping on Christmas cheer so head to your nearest Starbucks location and treat yourself. You deserve it!
