Been There Ornament – Chicago

Starbucks Been There Ornament Chicago has grey string and the following elements on the front:
a subway wagon – that’s for The Chicago “L” which is Chicago’s rapid transit system. It the second-busiest rail mass transit system in the United States (after NYC).
a baseball bat – is the reference to the Chicago Cubs – an American professional baseball team
a football ball – for the Chicago Bears – a professional American football team
a sailboat – is the reference to Chicago being located on the shore of Lake Michigan, one of the Great Lakes, and the only one being entirely in US.… 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 Ornament – Waikiki

Hawaii BTO is followed by Starbucks Been There Ornament Waikiki. They were actually spotted together, which makes sense. This mini mug has orange string and it’s front is mostly occupied by Diamond Head State Monument. I don’t necessary agree that the real mountain looks exactly like it is pictured, but it is what it is.… Read more

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 2

The release of this mug was definitely delayed, but today, the 50th state has revealed its 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 first glance, it seems the mug is dedicated to wildlife. Let’s wait for other sides to have the full picture.… Read more
