Starbucks dictates when the holidays may begin.
Trusted insiders have given us the lowdown on when Starbucks will switch over to holiday mode in 2020, rolling out their holiday lineup of drinks and treats.
According to our source, Friday, November 6, 2020, is the fabled Red Cup Day, when a red plastic reusable holiday-themed cup will be given to customers who order holiday drinks, as long as supplies last. The holiday lineup, which will be available at the same time, reportedly includes:
Caramel Brulee Latte
Chestnut Praline Latte
Toasted White Mocha
Cranberry Bliss Bar
Cranberry Orange Scone (new)
There will be no Gingerbread Latte this year, our insider says, and there may be other holiday bakery items rolled out in addition to the ones listed above.
While we don't have documentation or photos to prove it (and we want to protect our source's identity), remember: we were right about the release of the Pumpkin Spice Latte back in August.
How Starbucks execs choose to unveil this news themselves will likely be inventive, however, just like last time. We'll be sure to let you know as soon as we see something official!
Are you ready for holiday drinks? Are you ready for the holidays? After a year like this one, we're all ready for anything comforting, so bring.it.on.
