starbucks holiday drinks

Starbucks just unveiled their holiday 2019 drinks in Canada and people are way too excited

There are two things that undoubtedly signify the onset of winter: the first snowfall of the season, and the reappearance of Starbucks' holiday drinks.

Today, then, really feels like winter is finally upon us (in cities where it's snowing, at least), and though the jury is still out on the snow part, people across the country are pretty ecstatic about the coffee part.

The ubiquitous cafe chain rolled out its red, green and white-coloured cups and started serving its iconic caramel brûlé latte, chestnut praline latte, eggnog latte, gingerbread latte and peppermint mocha today, to the delight of fans who have been waiting months for the drinks to return.

Starbucks lovers have been taking to social media to share their festive purchases, many of them especially excited about the fact that customers who order any drink off of the holiday menu today receive a free reusable cup that says "merry coffee."

The regular paper cups are cute too, with patterns including Christmas polka dots, candy-cane stripes, and two more takes on the "merry coffee" theme.

Though the wintry menu is available at all locations both here and in the U.S., it seems one of the most popular drinks — the gingerbread latte — is only available in Canada this year.

It's beginning to feel a lot like the holidays, and (at least some) Canadians are all about it.
