🎅Starbucks unveils its 2023 holiday drink and food menu
🎄 The coffee chain's famous red cups have four new designs
The joy of the holiday season has begun. Starbucks has announced that its 2023 holiday drink and food menu, as well as its beloved red cups will return Nov. 2.
The Red Cups
The red cup is a bit different this year because instead of them being plain red, they are patterned. There are four holiday patterns for 2023.
This year’s holiday theme is “Share the Joy,” said Kristy Cameron, creative director at Starbucks. The cup collection is clad in holiday red, and Starbucks greens, mixed with other bright, bold, colors.
“Starbucks red cups are like little wrapped gifts for our partners and customers. My hope is that they feel excitement and joy when they see the cups, and that they want to share them with family and friends,” Cameron said.
Each cup features a gift tag to write notes, too.
Cup design #1 Party Plaid: It resembles a warm, woolen winter plaid scarf with a modern twist
Cup design #2 Peppermint Swirl: The iconic Starbucks Peppermint Mocha is the inspiration for this design with swirly waves of color that seem to move.
Cut design #3 Ribbon Spool: This design features a cup wrapped with colorful ribbons.
Cut design #4 Bauble Wrap: This cup features festive ornament shapes to create a bold, mod print wrapped around the cup.
