Been There Star Wars Ornament – Mustafar

The design of the Star Wars Mustafar Ornament is matching the design of the bigger mug that I reviewed in full earlier. The ornament comes with the orange string and shares the custom box with two other ornaments: Jakku and Coruscant.

Star Wars Been There – Mustafar

As I’ve mentioned in the previous post, there were three new Star Wars mugs released for the May 4th this year. Here is the first of them: Starbucks Been There – Mustafar mug.

Been There – Alabama 2

Starbucks Been There Alabama v2 is an updated version of the mug that was released five years ago. I am not surprised that designers removed “the cotton state” nickname from the mug, as it was raising the question of what it has to do with Alabama. Other rather obvious changes include:
– the appearance of a friendly-looking bear and a giant butterfly
– the planes are gone. As a reminder, these were related to the Tuskegee Airmen, which were the first African-American military aviators in the United States Armed Forces.… Read more

You Are Here – OrlĂ©ans

In an attempt to review all of the YAH releases by the end of this year, let me present Starbucks You Are Here Orléans mug to you. Orléans is a city in north-central France, not far from Paris. It was an important trade port for ages, thanks to its location on the river Loire, which flows into the Atlantic Ocean. You can see the waters of Loire across the mug (in the lower part).
Another interesting fact is that Orleans was the capital of the Kingdom of France during the Merovingian period and played an important role in the Hundred Years’ War, specifically in the siege of Orleans.… Read more
