Been There – Ontario 2

Here’s the second Canadian BT mug which has been revised – Been There – Ontario v2. The change is much bigger than Canada v2 from my previous post. In particular, Starbucks removed “The Heartland Province” nickname making adjacent elements bigger; the “Ice wine” has been switched with “Icewine”, which is the proper way to call the wine made from grapes that have been left to freeze naturally on the vine.

Been There – Canada 2

Here is another revised BT mug. The change we see in Been There – Canada v2 is really subtle. You actually have to play “spot the difference” game here. If you, like me, could not find it right away, here is the spoiler: the only difference is the comma in the line “The True North, strong and free”, which is a weird decision, since the official text of the Canadian anthem doesn’t have that comma. With this new releases, Starbucks is actually bringing more questions, rather than fixing things.… Read more

Let’s hope for the second option!… Read more

– Ferry – my understanding this is for ferries to Vancouver Island and other adjacent islands.
– Seaplane – is the best and easiest way to explore wonders of Beautiful British Columbia.… Read more

Been There Ornament – Niagara Falls

Starbucks Been There Ornament Niagara Falls is a Canadian ornament, according to the box (it has both English and French titles on it). From the mug:
– Horseshoe Falls – a.k.a Canadian Falls, is the largest of the three waterfalls forming Niagara Falls. Did you know the falls has moved back 7 miles during the last 12000 years due to erosion? The process has significantly slowed back, however in 40000 years or so the falls might not exist.
– Lake Erie is one of the five Great Lakes and forth by surface.… Read more

Been There – Canada

I somehow missed to publish Starbucks Been There Canada mug. By doing that I am finishing the Canadian BT series so far (hoping there will be more in the future). As for this particular mug, Starbucks has combined most of the cliches about Canada existing. … Read more
