Starbucks Confirm The Launch Of Their Christmas Drinks

Red Cups Return For 2016

Red Cups Return For 2016

Well, it's official! Starbucks Red Cups are back for Christmas 2016 very soon! Depending on where in the world you are, you'll be able to get your hands on a festive beverage from Tuesday 1st November.

In the US you'll have to wait a little longer, until after the election but from this week you'll be getting not red cups, but green cups. The green cups are part of a promotion to encourage the public to vote. Was election day passes then the green cups will be replaced with the red Christmas cups.

One spy and #RedCup fan tipped us off after spotting a delivery while in their local coffee shop, "while I was there it was a box and on the front said, 'Holiday Drink Promotion' It also said, 'Promotion Starts November 1st, 2016'."

In the UK, secret previews for Starbucks card holders have already begun and there's a change to this year's festive menu. Honey And Almond Hot Chocolate has been dropped from this year's menu and replaced by a very indulgent Fudge Hot Chocolate, a deliciously creamy, chocolaty blend, topped with whipped cream and golden white chocolate curls.

Depending on which country you are in, this Christmas from Starbucks you'll be able to get a selection of these handcrafted holiday beverages:

Eggnog Latte
Gingerbread Latte
Peppermint Mocha
Toffee Nut Latte
Caramel Brulée Latte
Chestnut Praline Latte
Fudge Hot Chocolate
Christmas Cookie Latte

Customers will also find Starbucks seasonal packaged coffee and iconic holiday food favourites, plus an assortment of holiday gifts for virtually anyone on your list.
