Discovery Series – Texas

Starbucks Discovery Series – Texas joins the new collection too! It was rumored that the release of the Discovery Series is going to start on April 9, but it seems that many locations started selling them much earlier! If you’re excited to see what these mugs look like in person, I suggest you check your favorite local Starbucks store today: the mugs could already be there.

The design of the Discovery Series Texas mug features the same green sphere or circle that we’ve seen already.… 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 – Texas 2

Starbucks Been There – Texas v2 introduces a minor update to the “Colorado river” writing on the side of the mug, which becomes “Colorado River”. Is that a significant change for you to have both in your collection? Let me know in the comments.

Been There Christmas – Texas

Been There Christmas Texas mug joins the party of Starbucks Been There Christmas Collection. Similar to regular mug it kept all state symbols, while having that festive look with gold linings on the white background. Btw, if you decide to use it on the daily basis, please remember, you can’t place it in microwave, because of the gold paint used. While I am sure Starbucks didn’t use real gold (you wish!), paint probably has metal particles in it. … Read more

Been There Ornament – Houston

Here’s another mini mug from Texas, this time it’s Starbucks Been There Ornament Houston. The color palette is green and brown while string is green. What do we see here:
Magnolia City is one of the earliest of Houston’s many nicknames.
a horseshoe – referring to ranchers
an oil rig – since the economy of Houston is based primarily on the energy industry, particularly oil
Houston City Hall – constructed during 1938 and 1939
I would like to specifically mention the Starbucks cup, which is supposed to be found on each of the mugs from Been There series.… Read more

Been There Ornament – Texas

Starbucks Been There Ornament Texas has probably one of the most laconic designs so far. As far as I can see, the front has only these items:
– a cowboy boot and hat – obviously
– a star shaped sheriff’s badge – a very well known element from Westerns (movies)
– I can also mention a pair of cacti, but they are leaning towards the side of the mug
And that’s it! The string is light orange, btw.… Read more

Been There Ornament – Dallas

In the contrast to the busy design of the bigger mug, Starbucks Been There Ornament Dallas has very few elements on the front:
Bigger’n Dallas stands for “bigger than Dallas” and is usually used to describe some impossible-to-miss object or event. It comes back from the days when Dallas was the biggest city in the state.
a football ball – probably referring to Dallas Cowboys – a professional American football team.
a guitar – referring to Annual Dallas International Guitar Festival which is the oldest and largest guitar festival show in the world
a cowboy hat – no explanation is needed
a head of a cow/bull.… Read more

Been There – Houston

I would like to continue with the third Texas city in the batch of recent releases – Starbucks Been There Houston. Really like this particular one, probably because of the color palette and the way the name is drawn.… Read more

Been There – Dallas

This week was pretty eventful in terms of BT releases. Namely, Wednesday, April 18 is the day when licensed stores started selling US BT cities. Yes, there was Austin earlier, but this time it was official green light from Starbucks, I guess. How do you guys like this Starbucks Been There Dallas mug? To be honest with you, I am getting more and more into this new collection. On the other side, locals complain that it doesn’t really feels like Dallas to them.… Read more
