Starbucks took some serious heat last year over their red holiday cups that totally lacked any seasonal flair, but that didn’t stop them from keeping their minimalist and somewhat nontraditional theme going strong. This year they’ve released a green cup (yep, GREEN!) along with their holiday drinks, and folks are not pleased. Though we still have to wait for the official release of the annual red cups (if we will indeed see red cups this year), you definitely need to check out the hate the green cups are getting right now on social media.
Though there’s definite confusion as to whether or not these are the annually awaited holiday cups…
There’s no doubt at all that they’re not liked. At all.
Note to Starbucks: Whatever the actual holiday design is this year, perhaps it’s best to stick with red, that is, unless the backlash buzz is what you were looking for.
Do you like the green cup design (whether or not it’s the holiday cup)? Tweet us @BritandCo!
