Been There Disney – Animal Kingdom 2

Like I’ve mentioned in the previous post, two parks got new releases so far, and Starbucks Been There Disney – Animal Kingdom 2 is the other mug from today. Again, we can see the gold box and the big “50th Anniversary” detail on the cover. I am waiting for the better pics of the mug and the box, especially the side with the legend mentioning all the elements from the mug. Stay tuned for the full review!… Read more

Been There Disney – Hollywood Studios 2

The rumors about the releases commemorating the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary have been in the air for quite some time. And it is now official, Starbucks has revealed the new mugs and ornaments for at least two parks today.
This is Been There Disney – Hollywood Studios 2 and as you can see it’s quite different from the “regular” releases, even Disney ones. The box is not orange anymore but has a rather gold color and the top of the cover reminds us about the 50th Anniversary of the WDW.… Read more

Been There – Texas 3

This is not a regular release, but rather a limited edition mug, that won’t be available to the public. Yes, it seems that Been There Texas 3 will be a “very hard to find mug” unless you work for or with Starbucks Texas.
As you can see from the images below, it is drastically different from Texas v1 or Texas v2 (which are almost identical). However, the moment I saw the new mug, I’ve realized I’d seen this design before. A quick review of the previous releases brought me to Been There Dallas mug.… Read more

Been There – Sacramento

Here’s the brand new mug – Been There Sacramento. It seems that Starbucks will be releasing mugs for more and more US cities, which is great. The design of this mug is using a color palette similar to the San Francisco mug and is featuring many points of interest and landmarks of the city.
I would like to mention one of the symbols of Sacramento, which is its nickname – the “City of Trees”. Indeed, the city has above average number of trees per capita when compared with other major cities in the United States and the world.… Read more

Been There – Oklahoma 2

It has been almost two years, since an updated version of the Oklahoma ornament was introduced. I have been monitoring the web and keeping an eye on a similar revision for the full-size mug. My understanding, is that there were so many v1s produced that Starbucks had to wait till all the inventory is sold out. The change that Been There – Oklahoma 2 introduces is an addition of an apostrophe to “Boomers’ Paradise”, see the comparison photo of v1 and v2 below.… Read more

Starbucks Been There Arizona 3 mug

Been There – Arizona 3

A similar change to what’s just happened to mini mug we can witness with the release of Been There – Arizona 3. The best way to distinguish the new version from v1 and v2 is to look at the front of it and spot the “Red Rock Sedona” label that’s replaced the “Grand Canyon” (it has been moved to the back of the mug). Another element that can help is two chili peppers just below the title.
If we count the Christmas version too, we now have four variants of the Arizona Been There mug.… Read more

Been There – Barbados

Starbucks Been There – Barbados mug commemorates, in a way, the official opening of the first Starbucks store in this island country from the Caribbean region. Located at Haggatt Hall, Bridgetown (the country’s capital), it welcomes its first customers starting today (July 30).
The mug showcases the flora and fauna of the island, which is one of the major touristic destinations of the region.
I am seeing Carlisle Bay, with Bridgetown in the back. This natural harbor has been turned into a marine park which became a popular spot for scuba diving.… Read more

Been There – Kentucky 2

Long time no see, Starbucks. The most recent release brings the update for the “Bluegrass State”. Been There – Kentucky v2 introduces the change from “Mammoth Caves” to “Mammoth Cave” on the front of the mug. Although, the more I look at the mugs (see comparison picture below), the more I think it was actually “Mammuth”. They’ve definitely changed the look of that “o” (or was it “u”?). What do you guys think about it? Leave a comment below, please.

Been There – Yosemite National Park

The release of Been There – Yosemite National Park denotes the further expansion of the BT series beyond cities and countries. Yes, we had amusement parks, but never a National Park, which made me wonder what other parks have Starbucks stores in them? After a quick search, it seems that this is the only one so far, and I think I know what could be the reason for that. It seems that the news about the opening of the store in Yosemite National Park was not well received by many park admirers.… Read more

Star Wars Been There – Tatooine

Star Wars Been There – Tatooine is a mug for probably one of the most well-known locations from the Star Wars franchise. Home planet to both Luke and Anakin Skywalker, it is remembered for its desert landscapes and beautiful sunsets of its two suns. I believe it is the only planet featured in all six episodes of the saga (although only mentioned in The Empire Strikes Back). It is also the very first planet to be seen in the film franchise (Episode IV – A New Hope) and that’s what most of the mug is dedicated to.… Read more
