Red cup season. Is. Here. I want to say that I kept it cool and wasn’t all that excited about this transition, but that’s completely untrue.The day after Halloween, I had to drive up to the city and I was having a difficult time at the Starbucks drive-thru trying to decide which holiday drink I should be ordering (I considered having all four in the same day until I realized that was crazy):
- Pumpkin spice latte
- Peppermint Mocha
- Chestnut Praline Latte
- Gingerbread Latte
So many choices. While I was thinking about what drink I was going to order, there were lots of regular Starbucks customers that were furious about the red cup itself and why this year, it was a blank canvas and only decorated red without any other design on it. Yeah, that went completely over my head. On Sunday nights, I like to try and kick off the week with a little funny so here is one customer’s reaction to the whole red cup fiasco.
