Christmas cups are coming
Christmas seems to be starting earlier an earlier. Each year another shop decides when is appropriate to “begin” Christmas. Once the Coca-Cola truck rolls on to our TV, “holidays are coming”. Before then, it’s the battle of the Christmas cups between the major coffee shops. We have some news…. Christmas cups are coming!
Costa Coffee Christmas cups
Costa Coffee has confirmed the 2017 Christmas cups are imminent, due for release on 2nd November. If the images we have seen are to be believed, the 2017 Christmas cups from Costa will sport some Christmas decoration images. In conjunction with their Christmas cup launch, Costa is also releasing a festive food and drinks menu.
Sadly last years desirable hot chocolate orange drink will no longer be available. Fear not though, you will now be able to warm your cockles with a number of seasonal lattes including Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Mint Hot chocolate and a new “billionaires” latte (which hopefully is not only affordable to billionaires!)
There will be some new cakes to enjoy too along with your festive cup of goodness, including vegan and gluten-free options.
Starbucks are ready for Christmas
So what about Starbucks? As best as we can understand, their Christmas cups are due to launch in the UK very soon. There had been rumours that the iconic red cup might look a little different this year. It would seem that Starbucks are hoping their fans will be inclined to customise their Christmas cups before sharing them with the world on Twitter and Instagram. From the image below you can see that you can now colour in your own Christmas cup.
The Starbucks Christmas cup has gathered something of a cult following over the years. There is even a website counting down to their expected arrival www.countdowntoredcups.com.

Don’t forget that you can win a £5 Starbucks voucher every day on FreeTreats.co.uk. You could soon be sipping from your Christmas cup, for free!
