Is it that time already? Starbucks unveils new holiday cups

There’s also a giveaway of its reusable red cups Thursday with the purchase of a holiday drink.

Weeks out from Thanksgiving, Starbucks has jumpstarted its holiday campaign, unveiling its 2019 holiday cups Wednesday.

The company’s signature red and green holiday cups are getting four new designs. Starbucks is also giving away reusable red cups Nov. 7 with the purchase of a holiday beverage.

It also announced the return of its holiday drinks: peppermint mocha, toasted white chocolate mocha, caramel brulee latte, chestnut praline latte and eggnog latte. With those also comes some seasonal foods.

In recent years, the chain has endured some controversy about the cups about not being “Christmas-y enough,” among other religious criticisms.
