The Latest Starbucks Mugs

Been There – Nevada 2

The moment I saw Been There – Nevada v2 mug photo I thought it was just some issue with its color balance. The mug was not supposed to be blue, but rather red and orange. Just to be sure, I’ve compared this photo with the pictures of the Nevada mug from this post. Well, what do you know, it turned out to be the new, v2 version! Check out the comparison picture below. The first thing we see on the front of the mug is that the bird has changed.… Read more

Been There Disney – Epcot 2

And last but not least from the recent Disney releases, is Been There Disney – Epcot v2 mug. The list below is what Starbucks designers have used as inspiration for the mug. Please note, that some of the symbols that can be seen on the mug, are not a part of the park anymore. The way I understand it, they are included to pay homage to the park’s discontinued attractions and as a part of the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration

Been There Disney – Magic Kingdom 2

I am finally reviewing the Been There Disney – Magic Kingdom v2 mug that was delayed for some reason. All four new mugs for the Walt Disney World have the “50th Anniversary” theme in their design however it is only Magic Kingdom that was opened 50 years ago, on October 1, 1971. The second park, Epcot, was only opened 11 years later!

Been There – Rutgers

Starbucks Been There – Rutgers was not on the list of the mugs I expected for the Campus Collection. Well, like I always say, the more the better

“The Birthplace of College Football” phrase can be seen on the front of the mug. It is the reference to Rutgers being the place for the first intercollegiate football game between Rutgers and Princeton on November 6, 1869.… Read more
