You Have to See the New Color-Changing Cups at Starbucks

Starbucks' color-changing cups are finally back and still full of magic—now's the time to collect yours.

If you’re looking for a bold way to make your iced coffee habit more sustainable, Starbucks has you covered. The reusable Starbucks color-changing cups literally change color when there’s cold liquid in them, making that iced latte or secret menu Cap’n Crunch Frappuccino even more fun!

@LovetoTarget showed off the brand new cups on Instagram, and we instantly fell in love. (You will, too.)

Starbucks also rolled out a Confetti Cold Cup. It looks like a typical reusable cup at first glance, but once you splash in your ice water or Frappuccino, the colors come to life! Here’s a sneak peek courtesy of @SbuxReusableCups on Instagram.

What Colors Are Included?

The official colors for the cups are tomato, peach, marigold, sea and cobalt. Some of the color changes, like sea, stay within the same color family, changing from light blue to a gorgeous ocean blue. Others create a more drastic effect! The tomato cups change from red to deep aubergine. And the aptly named marigold cups change from yellow to oh, so sweet tangerine.

How Much Are They?

Each set comes with five color-changing cups, lids and straws and while we’re not sure about price tag just yet, they retailed last year for around $17. The Confetti Cold Cup will only cost you around $4, but you’ll have to snap yours up quick. All of these cups are bound to fly off shelves, though they’ll be restocked periodically throughout the summer. In the meantime, you should definitely get your hands on these iridescent Starbucks tumblers.

Keep in mind that Starbucks is not currently accepting reusable cups. You can use them at home to your heart’s content, but for the time being, it’s best to keep them out of the drive-thru. Luckily, Starbucks has tentative plans to reopen some locations in June. And someday soon, we’ll be sipping on that sweet 10-cents off discount.
