Starbucks’ New Green Cup Sparks Controversy

In a hurry for the holidays, Starbucks raised eyebrows earlier this week when they brought back their holiday drink menu just three hours after Halloween ended.

Just a few days before that, an image of the company’s hotly-anticipated red holiday cups were leaked on the image sharing site, imgur.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year — according to Starbucks, anyway.

Just a few hours after Halloween officially ended—and after the design of their new holiday red cups was leaked—the coffee chain announced that all their signature holiday drinks are returning to stores on November 1st. The six seasonal favorites include the Caramel Brulée Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, Eggnog Latte, Gingerbread Latte and the regular and skinny versions of the Peppermint Mocha. Starbucks is also making a few of the festive drinks available for customers at home with a line of grocery store products.

But those stopping by their local store will notice a new vessel for their holiday drinks. The company commissioned artist Shogo Ota to create a green cup with a sketch of more than 100 people drawn in one continuous stroke. While the cup is not a direct symbol of the holidays, it does have a very spirited message.

In September, Starbucks revealed the return of their cult-favorite Pumpkin Spice Latte and addition of the new Chile Mocha Latte—cocoa-infused steamed milk with espresso that is topped with a spice blend of ancho chili pepper, sea salt, cinnamon, paprika, cayenne chili pepper and sugar.
