Move over, Pumpkin Spice Latte. Halloween has come and gone, which means it’s time to make room for Starbucks’ winter holiday drinks, like the Gingerbread Latte and Peppermint Mocha.
If you love indulging in these special drinks all season, you can save some money on your habit this year. That’s because on Nov. 2, customers who order a holiday beverage will receive a free, reusable red holiday cup. The cups will be offered while supplies last and can be used to get 50 cents off any Grande-sized holiday drink ordered after 2 p.m. between Nov. 3 and Jan. 7.
The promotion coincides with the return of six seasonal beverages: Peppermint Mocha, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha, Caramel Brulee Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, Gingerbread Latte and Eggnog Latte. All of these drinks are available hot, iced and as Frappucinos. The stores will also be decked out with seasonal decor, and baristas will switch to red aprons for the season.
And of course, while you’re there, you can also snag some Starbucks Christmas blend coffee as well.
“When you come into Starbucks, there’s a festive vibe,” Kristy Cameron from the Starbucks Creative Studio said in a press release. “Our customers have told us that the return of Starbucks holiday cups and beverages are a signal the season is upon us. We hope they feel the holiday magic that only Starbucks can create during this special time of year.”
In addition to the seasonal drinks, you can also grab some festive food items, including Chocolate Swirl Brioche, Pistachio Honey Croissant and the Sugarplum Cheese Danish, all new additions this year. They will join returning holiday treats Gingerbread Loaf, Penguin Cake Pop, Peppermint Brownie Cake Pop, Snowman Cookie, Cranberry Bliss Bar, Carved Ham & Swiss Breakfast Sandwich and Holiday Turkey Panini.
The coffee chain will also introduce four new holiday cup designs, a tradition since 1997. This year’s designs include a red-striped cup, a Flora cup that evokes holly, Espresso Houndstooth in red and white and Stargyle, which shows stars against a backdrop of interlinking diamonds in different shades of Starbucks green.
