Starbucks managed to stir up controversy and outrage last year with their minimalist red cup for the holiday season. Well they managed to do it again this year about their new green“community” cup.

Many seem confused as to whether the community cup is replacing the traditional holiday cup.

One of our staff members was told by Starbucks customer service that the green cup may be replacing the red this year.

However, Starbucks’ twitter account alludes otherwise, saying  “Our holiday plans are still under wraps. Stay tuned!” in response to a customer tweet.

Now we can all come together as a community and ask ourselves, do we really care that much about something we’re just gonna throw away?

Heck, I would drink a good cup of coffee out of a styrofoam bowl if I had to but not if it cost me $5.25– I’m looking at you venti pumpkin spice latte.

 

Haley Golden, sophomore: “You can really get lost in the design. I think it’s kind of cool. Honestly I didn’t even know what the [holiday cup] looked like.”
