It’s that time of year again–Holiday cups are back at your local Starbucks, or, if you live in the Midwest, then also at Caribou Coffee.
The holidays are a time for tradition–twinkling lights, snow, family and friends, and the colors of the season. But, some things fall short of tradition.
Let’s take a look at how the competition’s cups stack up against each other.
As you can see, Caribou’s holiday cup is dominated by a pale blue color, and reads “Winter Wonderland” sprinkled with snowflakes, which captures the essence of winter.
Whereas, the vibrant red Starbucks features the outline of Christmas tree ornaments, which is accented by the green Starbucks logo. In all things holiday, tradition is important. What’s more traditional than red and green at Christmastime? In this instance, Caribou’s cup is anti-climactic. It falls short of holiday expectations.
Despite Caribou’s lacking holiday cup design, we’ll continue sipping on our Ho Ho Mochas or Peppermint Mochas.
