Red Cups

While I typically would rather support the java underdog, I find Starbucks' red cups irresistible. Gingerbread, peppermint, and egg nog lattes - oh my! Well actually, nonfat gingerbread lattes and peppermint mochas are my drinks du jour, and since the season of red cups is short lived, 'tis the season to indulge!

I couldn't agree more! The red cups aren't quite as beautiful as they have been in years past, but they're still a treat. (My Starbucks stocks gingerbread syrup year-round, but I wouldn't dream of ordering one til the red cups come in.)

I love those red cups too! It must be time for me to try my first gingerbread latte of the season at Starbucks, not sure if they do the egg nog lattes here tho, will have to find out :)

I love them too! Silly, but there is something so indulgent about picking up a hot cup of coffee.

I love the red cups too! they always make me smile and instantly put me in the holiday mood! I tried gingerbread the other day and it was ok, but I think I'm going to stand by my pumpkin spice latte. nothing can compete!

After trying a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte for the first time this year (normally I'm just a plain, mild coffee drinking type of girl haha) I totally fell in love with their specialty drinks. I'm excited to try a gingerbread latte! Thanks for the inspiration :)

I agree... I count the days for the peppermint lattes to come out, it's the official start of the holidays for me! :-)

I'm the same way. I get way too excited when Starbucks busts out the red cups.

Have you seen the little ornaments they are selling of the red cups? They are sooooo cute, and I totally want one! Gonna have my little bro snag one for me, as he is a Starbucks "Barista" :)

It makes me feel slightly ill that I get SO EXCITED about the holiday drinks at Starbucks. I do not know how those little red cups infiltrated my psyche, but they have, and I ADORE THEM. :)
