Starbucks Welcomes Back Peppermint Mocha As Part Of 2019 Holiday Favorites Menu

Starbucks’ free reusable cups and holiday drinks menu are back

This week, the Seattle-based company shared its holiday coffee cups, a yearly tradition, and as usual the chain is eager to avoid any religious symbols or phrases, despite the calls of coffee-loving Evangelicals.

You'll have to act fast to get the cup, though, as Starbucks is giving them away for one day only. It's fun, festive and uniquely Starbucks.

In 2015, Starbucks was accused of a "war on Christmas" when they unveiled plain red holiday cups that did not explicitly say anything about the holiday. They also turned to their new creative expression, a reimagining of the Starbucks brand. "It has ginger and other spices that will create a "mock" gingerbread latte". "We just thought that was a very sweet expression of the brand, but still felt very holiday".

Merry Stripes: From a distance, this cup looks like it's wrapped in green vintage wrapping paper. The closest it gets are the words "Merry Coffee" on two of the four designs, plus "We wish you a merry coffee", on a newly designed cup sleeve.


Polka Dots: "The traditional Starbucks red cup is dotted with green, with the Siren playfully popping in here and there".

The 2019 reusable red cup design is a riff on Starbucks' holiday theme for this year, with the words "Merry Coffee" dancing on an iconic holiday red background.

For its annual holiday drinks and cups announcement, Starbucks has released four new designs, one special reusable red cup and five seasonal beverages.

Holiday cup-carriers, however, will board after first-class passengers and those with special boarding designations.
