Been There Ornament – New Jersey 2

New and “improved” Starbucks Been There Ornament – New Jersey v2 comes right after the bigger mug. As I’ve mentioned before, the change includes the “Northern Red Oak” writing on the front of the ornament, which is the proper name of the official state tree of New Jersey (adopted in 1950). The photo is provided by a reader, which confirms that the new version is already available in stores.

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 you collection? Let me know in the comments.

Been There – New Jersey 2

Starbucks introduces the updated version of the previously released mug, Starbucks Been There – New Jersey v2. The change they bring in is that “Red Oak” is replaced with “Northern Red Oak” right on the front of the mug. Funny enough I was mentioning this tree in my review of the NJ ornament, but it didn’t come to my mind that Starbucks was planning to “fix” that. It also means that the small mug will also be replaced, stay tuned for the update!… Read more

Been There – North Carolina 2

Remember when I’ve asked you to stay tuned to see whether North Carolina will get v2? Well, it took Starbucks almost a year to introduce the fix into the regular mug. Again, the Christmas version came fixed already. Anyway, here’s Starbucks Been There – North Carolina v2, where “WHITE WATER FALLS” has been changed to “WHITEWATER FALLS”. For your convenience, I am posting a collage of all three mugs together. What are your thoughts, guys? Is the change worth to have both mugs in your collection?… Read more

Been There Ornament – Maryland 2

Since Starbucks is on hold with new releases, I decided to check the status of the “second versions” which I expected to come out. After the update of the Maryland Been There mug, the release of the matching v2 ornament was just the matter of time. And here it is, Been There Ornament – Maryland v2
As you can see from the image below, the only difference is switching “Chesapeake State” nickname, which didn’t make any sense anyway, with the official tree of the state, White Oak.… Read more

Been There – Illinois 2

There have been some updates in the design of existing mugs recently. One of those is Been There – Illinois v2. The only change I see are dashes between the words in Cave-in-Rock, a 55-foot wide riverside cave formed by wind and water erosion. Indeed, it is the right way of writing the name of this landmark of the Ohio River, city and State Park.

Been There – Maryland 2

Starbucks Been There – Maryland v2 has two elements updated:
– there was this “nickname”, “Chesapeake State” which didn’t make any sense. I could not find any source which callled Maryland that way. This controversial detail has been replaced with White Oak, official tree of the state.
– “Oh say can you see…” has been replaced with “O say, can you see…” and I am not sure how accurate it is. There are slightly different variations of the “The Star-Spangled Banner” out there in internet.… Read more

Been There – Denver 2

Here’s another “updated” design, which has been spotted by a Facebook user today. The change we see for Starbucks Been There Denver v2 is kind of controversial. Because even though Denver’s Wikipedia page mentions “the Mile-High City” nickname once, I could not find it written with the hyphen anywhere else, including official site of the city of Denver. With that being said, I don’t consider this mug to be the “error fix”, but advise to buy v1 as soon as possible as they are going to disappear from stores pretty soon.… Read more

Been There – Arizona 2

Ain’t no error fix, but the desire to meet the people’s demand in removing “the Sand Hill State” wording from the mug. Even though no one heard of this nickname, some resources claim it is old, but legit. Nonetheless, with the release of Starbucks Been There Arizona v2 mug, that controversial element has been replaced with lizard. It’s worth mentioning, that ornament v2 was spotted before the bigger mug.

Been There – Michigan 2

As you probably remember, in my previous post, I’ve predicted the appearance of Starbucks Been There Michigan v2 mug. And here it is, spotted online. The only difference this version is bringing, is “Winter Water Wonderland” slogan being replaced with “Water Winter Wonderland”. I do consider the Michigan v1 a State error mug, since this is the actual fix of the mistake made in the design. We’re now left guessing, why it took Starbucks so long to replace the mug, but it could easily be negligence, human factor.… Read more
