Speaking of the latest offering centered around the theme, "Carry The Merry", Jeff Wilkson, creative director, Starbucks, said in a statement: "Our thought behind the cups this year was about people carrying them out in the world as messengers of joy. In a way, that message deepened as we got further and further into this year. We want to be that beacon for people, a brief moment that they can look forward to." Explaining further about the creative decision behind the offering, Wilkson added: "Early in our exploration, one of our designers had started making these little ribbons that almost looked like washi tape. We had this one session where we were so inspired by these different patterns that we cut them out with scissors and started wrapping them in different ways on cups."
The festive drinks will also be accompanied by a host of interesting food options as well. Starbucks will offer a new Cranberry Orange Scone in its bakery case to blend with any of its holiday drinks. You'll also notice the return of the Sugar Plum Danish, Cranberry Bliss Bar, Snowman Cookie, and Snowman Cake Pop.
So there are a number of ways you can lay your hands on this red cup after you've purchased your holiday beverage. According to Starbucks, the free collectible cup can be picked up in participating stores be it at the cafe, drive-thru, or curbside. The option also extends to Starbucks Delivers and Uber Eats. One can also order the beverages through the Starbucks app and check for the desired location, store timings, and as well as for contactless payment. Starbucks has assured its customers that all safety protocols will be adhered to as per the CDC guidelines.
