Been There Ornament – Alaska

We have special news today! Definitely earlier than I expected, Starbucks is releasing Been There Ornaments! The first mini mug that has been spotted in stores so far, is Been There Ornament Alaska. My understanding, there will be many more coming out pretty soon. As a reminder, ornaments are usually sold in licensed stores (hotels, grocery stores, airports). So if you are the one, who decided to skip collecting Been There Series, but can’t resist ornaments, start checking your Starbucks licensed stores right now!… Read more

Been There – Delaware 2

We’ve been all waiting for the official release of this mug for quite a while. As you remember it was delayed due to an error made on the mug. As you can see, the “fixed” Starbucks Been There Delaware v2 mug is missing “Lower Slower” nickname on the front. So instead of making it “Slower Lower” they replaced it with crab. My guess, this phrase is copyrighted, and Starbucks decided to completely remove it, in order to avoid any lawsuits in the future.… Read more

Been There – Mississippi

The release of this mug was definitely delayed, but today, the 50th state has revealed it’s design. Please note, Starbucks Been There Mississippi is probably an error (misprint) mug, since it came out much later than other states. Unfortunately I don’t have any proof of that, but I secretly hope someone got it (either from manufacturer or store staff) and will show to the world sooner or later. From the first glance it seems the mug is dedicated to wildlife. Let’s wait for other sides to have the full picture.… Read more

Been There – North Dakota 2

I’ve got some exclusive photos from one of the collectors and I hasten to share them with you. Here’s Starbucks Been There North Dakota v2 mug brand new and improved. Specifically, Starbucks fixed the error it made for “Geographical Center of North America” monument installed in Rugby, ND (see side-by-side photos). I also find it very amusing, that the picture of the monument was made smaller in order for it to be moved up North on the map of the US.… Read more

Been There – Montana 2

The second, fixed version of recently revealed mug, Starbucks Been There Montana 2 is out! As a reminder, the misprint was on the front of the mug. It is now saying “Bitterroot” instead of “Bitteroot”. We can only guess how many mugs with error were produced, and what’s more important, how many were sold.
Update from 2018-05-19: please see side-by-side comparison of the front of the mugs, where the misprint is (missing ‘r’ in the Bitterroot word).

Been There – Nebraska 2

Mugs with fixed misprints, a.k.a. V2s, continue coming to the scene. It was last week when Starbucks Been There Nebraska v2 mug has finally been spotted in stores. As you can see, the state motto was fixed to “Good Life. Great Opportunity” as it was supposed to be initially.
Update from 2018-05-19: added a side-by-side comparison of v1 and v2

Been There – North Dakota

Thanks to a collector, (see watermark), I can finally add Starbucks Been There – North Dakota mug to my site. Again, this is the error mug, so technically this is North Dakota v1 and it’s ultra rare. The fixed version is expected to be released pretty soon, that’s when I will post a side-by-side comparison photo for you guys. But for now, please see this all-sides collage. The actual misprint is on the back of the mug, where is says “Center of the United States” which is obviously the reference to the “Geographical Center of North America” monument installed in Rugby, ND.… Read more
