Check out this year's magical menu along with 2019's holiday cups below! And if you're in it for the 'gram, the cups have an added bonus of an augmented reality feature via Instagram Stories (see the Starbucks Instagram profile for more info).

Along with Starbucks' four new cup designs, the chain is once again offering a limited-edition reusable red cup, decked out in the words "Merry" and "Coffee".

And on to the seasonal drinks: Peppermint and toasted white chocolate mochas, and caramel brulée, chestnut praline and eggnog lattes all make a comeback this year.

Starting Thursday, while supplies last, Starbucks will give away reusable red "Merry Coffee" cups to those who renounce Christmas, or just buy a holiday drink.


Starbucks and the holidays go together like coffee and cream.

"We played with this idea of typography being art and the green dot of the Starbucks logo", Quotson said in the news release. All four cups use traditional colors, red and green, although that was a point of contention in the past.

Merry Stripes: "From a length, this cup looks like it's wrapped in environmentally friendly vintage wrapping paper".

Merry Dance: A lively pairing of red and green letters jazz up a snowy white cup with a joyful expression. But up close, its tiny type offers a happy sentiment.


Last but not least, the Candy Cane Stripes cup is a big, bold design showcasing thick red and white stripes.

For food, you'll see the return of the Holiday Turkey & Stuffing Panini, Cranberry Bliss Bar, Snowman Cookie, Gingerbread Loaf, Peppermint Brownie Cake Pop, Snowman Cake Pop and Chicken Sausage Bacon Biscuit.

Starbucks will also be launching their festive food menu. Customers who bring in the 2019 reusable holiday cup after 2 p.m. from Thursday to January 7 will get 50 cents off their grande (medium-sized) holiday beverage. In case you order a vacation drink tomorrow, November 7, you'll obtain a free limited-edition reusable crimson cup with a Merry Dance design.

Since its creation, the Winter Holiday cup has stirred up controversy and creativity across the world.
