It’s that time of year you guys! That’s right, it’s time for stores, companies, and families to start preparing for Christmas! Well, more specifically, it’s time for Starbucks Coffee to come out with their Holiday Cups.
If you aren’t a Starbucks fan or don’t really care for it, you probably still know that Starbucks manages to stir some form of controversy with their Holiday Cups almost every year, no matter how “festive” they may be. The designs look different every year.
Some of the past designs include just plain red, wintery nature scenes and open references to Christmas. This year, however, the design of the cup was leaked by a Starbucks employee way before the design’s big unveiling. The photo was posted on Reddit.
The user is named DarthSpoopy. Based on their caption people have a feeling they work for the coffee chain. They wrote, “Just got it in our order. Holiday short cup design!??”
According to People.com, instead of going all red or showcasing several different custom designs like they did last year, it appears Starbucks could be offering a single hand-draw motif…at least for the tall-sized cups.
As you can tell by the photo, the design has black, white and green coloring with a Christmas tree, doves, a stack of presents, snowflakes, two people holding hands and a red ribbon running around the entire cup.
But as with the usual, the reactions from people were pretty mixed. Many had a particular problem with the design being leaked online.
