Starbucks’ Halloween Merch Is Coming and There’s a Glow-in-the-Dark Travel Mug
Fall festivities and Halloween parties might be on pause this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get creative and celebrate Halloween. Coffee lovers have already begun spotting Starbucks’ Halloween merchandise among its fall-themed drinkware and there’s even a glow-in-the-dark travel mug for those late fall nights spent watching your favorite horror movies at home.
Not only did Starbucks bring back its pumpkin-themed drinks earlier than ever this year to help quell some of the pandemic-induced blues, but the coffee giant is even keeping the spooky spirit alive by introducing some merch that will bewitch just about any java lover.
Shoppers have already begun spotting the Halloween-themed drinkware in stores, but rumor has it there will be a wider rollout in September. Vancouver-based Starbucks lover @grangvillemarket shared glimpses of the skull- and crow-themed glowing mug for hot drinks, which lights up neon green in the dark. They also shared a six-pack of spooky reusable tumblers for warm drinks that come with glow-in-the-dark lids. Each 16-ounce cup comes in a classic Halloween color, with each including a cheeky saying like “witch’s brew,” “goblin juice,” and “hot off the cauldron” for those looking to switch up their spooky vibes all the way through October.
And the beloved studded tumbler is back, this time in black with a gorgeous gold iridescent shimmer. The dark studded tumbler seems to come in two sizes—a venti and a grande—making for a frightfully perfect new addition to the Instagram-friendly cold tumbler lineup.
If you’re not quite ready to ring in Halloween but still want to get your fall on, there are plenty of options available to you. The full line of autumn-themed drinkware is seemingly already widely available, featuring six pretty, colorful cups, some of which have gold floral detailing on them which makes them kinda perfect long after the last pumpkin has been put away. Along with the iridescent shimmer tumbler, there are two travel mugs that come in black or purple and feature a subtle spider web-inspired design, two other travel mugs with the floral design in gold, purple, and blue tones, and a screw cap bottle for cold drinks in a gold and pink ombré design for those who want a bit more subtlety as they drink their PSL.
You’ll have to check your local Starbucks for these festive cup offerings to appear in the coming weeks. But much like fall itself, they’ll probably disappear faster than you can say “boo,” so keep your eyes peeled before they go into the dark of night.
