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

You Are Here Ornament – Japan 2 “Winter Edition”

Along with the full-sized mug, Starbucks has also released You Are Here Ornament – Japan v2 “Winter Edition”. Here’s something I’ve forgot to mention in my previous post – the new mug and ornament are light blue inside compared to red in the first edition. The string is also light blue.

You Are Here – Japan 2 “Winter Edition”

Release of the Starbucks You Are Here – Japan v2 will probably be the most important news of November 2018. Starbucks calls it “Winter Version” of the existing mug. Following elements symbolizing Japan winter were added, replacing existing ones:
– camellia flowers (Camellia Japonica, common camellia, Japanese camellia or Tsubaki), often called the rose of winter, since it prefers cool temperatures.
– Red-crowned cranes – one of the rarest cranes in the world. The cranes are most spectacular to watch as they dance, often in pairs, with seemingly choreographed dips and jumps.… Read more

You Are Here Christmas – Manila 2

Here is the second Asian Christmas YAH spotted online – Starbucks You Are Here Christmas Manila v2. It reveals more details about 2018 Edition as a whole. Specifically, the box will be green this time, as opposed to red one we always had. Also, it’s hard to judge based on this blurry image, but I think the “waves” in the bottom part of the front are painted red and green. Last year these were solid gold. Better quality pics are supposed to come soon and we will be able to tell for sure whether this is true.Read more

You Are Here Christmas – Philippines 2

One might think that all Christmas mugs will get red handle this year, as we saw it with European Country mugs, however it is not true for Asian mugs. Here’s Starbucks You Are Here Christmas – Philippines v2 mug. That green color from the inside of the mug, makes it different from the last year’s version (where it was red). I believe this change is really subtle and Starbucks could definitely do better this time. Anyway, it’s here, and it’s up to you now to decide whether to collect these or not!… Read more

Been There – South Dakota 2

I sincerely though we’re done with US Error mugs. Boy, was I wrong! Here comes Starbucks Been There South Dakota v2! The element which has been adjusted is word “pronghorn” instead of “prong horn deer”. And it is actually a valid fix, since pronghorn, the animal from the mug, is not a deer, and it’s closest living relatives are the giraffes and okapi.
Here’s side by side comparison of two mugs together:
