“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…” at Starbucks.
Starbucks lovers weren’t exactly fans of the past cups . In 2015, they just issued plain red cups. It caused quite a stir as if they were on war with Christmas.
According to their spokesperson, the coffee company now wants to bring cheers and joys to their customers. That’s even in simple ways. “Merry Coffee” is a good expression, so every time that customer takes a sip, they would feel the holiday season. The cups were designed to “evoke those mini moments of joy.”
Could this actually mean that Christmas is nearing because this giant coffee industry has launched its festive holiday design? The great news about this one is that we can reuse these cups over and over again. We’re sure they are sturdy enough to last a lot of Christmases. Earlier, Starbucks cups were tested to become greener cups. Some of them have materials made up of compostable and others were even strawless.
Starbucks swore to stop using plastic straws by 2020. This a big step to being environmentally friendly.
The designs of Starbucks cups often draw different criticisms and praise from their customers. Fans didn’t like their new slogan.
One posted “Bah Humbug.”
Another one said “I’m gonna get a jump start on Starbucks holiday cup drama by saying that “Merry Coffee” is the silliest slogan I have ever heard.”
