Starbucks holiday cups, out today, encourage customers to color, "Give Good"

Starbucks holiday cups, out today, encourage customers to color,

Two years later, Starbucks' holiday cup feature snowflakes, trees and presents with bright sections of red and green. Last year, in addition to the infamous green cup, the company introduced red cups with 13 designs that customers created themselves.

Although the new design hasn't come as much of a surprise following the image leaked by a Reddit user in October, what we didn't know is that this new version has got a DIY element to it. Starbucks has designed the cups to be customised, with plenty of white spaces to be coloured-in or illustrated in your own style.

It's the most wonderful time of the year! The design features a white cup with an illustration of hands holding red cups to honor years past.

You definitely haven't finished eating your Halloween candy yet, but Starbucks has already released their holiday cup, so it's time to say goodbye to fall and hello to the holidays, we guess.

The coffee chain's seasonal cups launched in the USA on Wednesday morning and it's safe to say they're full of festive cheer.

I'll admit that I was salty at first because red cup season is my favorite season (before rosé season and after PSL season), but the cups are kind of adorable and have a solid message behind them.

McDonald's dose of holiday cheer, meanwhile, co-opts the prominent red design that Starbucks has capitalized on since 1977.

Meanwhile, Wednesday also marks the return of the chain's holiday beverages including Chestnut Praline Latte, Caramel Brûlée Latte, Gingerbread Latte, Eggnog Latte and the Peppermint Mocha.

The sleeve for hot drinks reads "Give Good". Swirling red ribbons, gifts, a decorated tree and other holiday iconography completes the cup. "Giving good can be as small as someone opening the door for you, or recognizing the people that enrich your life".
