Ah, that time of year which we all love – Christmas. And one of the many staples of the holidays is the simple switching of a white cup, to a red cup at Starbucks. Almost seems ridiculous really, but it’s true. The whole world goes crazy for a red cup filled with a lovely Christmas-themed drink. What more could anyone want?
This year Starbucks are launching, on November 10th, a classic BOGOFF offer (Buy One Get One Free), what is not to love? Which obviously is fantastic as we can all now get two drinks from Starbucks for the price of one – ah, Christmas.
The drinks involved in this offer include Chestnut Praline Latte, Peppermint Mocha and Skinny Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brulée Latte, Gingerbread Latte, Eggnog Latte, Teavana Joy Brewed Tea, and Spiced Sweet Cream Nariño 70 Cold Brew. I feel like it’s safe to say that every single one of these will be consumed within the first week of the offer.
Starbucks has become such an iconic part of the holidays due to the ‘red cup culture’ and it’s simple to see why. It’s a subtle way to begin to celebrate Christmas with something you can enjoy every day, which isn’t too flashy – you aren’t going to be accused of being ‘obsessed’ with the holidays. Even though, we have all started getting in the spirit the second Halloween has ended.
So here it is, the countdown to Christmas has officially begun and what a fabulous time this is. Now, get drinking!
