Starbucks releases new holiday cups and is giving out reusable ones for free

It's November now, which means that a lot of businesses are already looking ahead to Christmas and the festive season, and Starbucks is no different. You might think that this is being premature, but you've got to remember that as the temperatures drop, warm drinks like coffee and hot chocolate are the order of the day for those of us who want to keep cozy.

Bearing this in mind, Starbucks has announced that they're giving their customers the chance to pick up some new free festive holiday-themed cups from their locations for Christmas this year.

Check out this accidental Starbucks cup cameo in a season eight episode of Game of Thrones:

There are three unique cups on offer from Starbucks: a polka-dotted cup, one with the words "merry" and “coffee", another with candy cane-stripes, and the other a festive forest green cup with white lettering.

Not only that but if you order a holiday beverage today, you'll also receive a free limited-edition reusable red cup, and if you bring it back after 2:00 p.m. today, you’ll get $0.50 off a handcrafted grande holiday beverage.

But wait; there's more! Starbucks is bringing out some new drinks for their menu, such as a new hot chocolate with marshmallow syrup, topped with marshmallow flavored whipped cream. They are also reprising their three original festive latte flavors: toffee nut, gingerbread, and eggnog.

There's also some festive food on offer, such as turkey sandwiches, festive feast paninis, mince pies, Christmas tree brownies, caramel cupcakes or a slice of the Christmas bauble chocolate loaf cake.

Not to mention the fact that Starbucks are restocking their vegetarian brie and cranberry focaccia, and launching some new vegan beetroot wraps.

Look guys, I know Christmas might seem like it's a long way away, but when there's all these great offers out there, it's pretty hard not to get into the spirit of it.
