Starbucks springs in to season with new cups

These limited-edition brightly-colored cups will signal the arrival of the warmer months, and perhaps a foray into "iced coffee season".

The introduction of the new Starbucks seasonal cups for spring will be the first time that the coffee chain has ever put out cups for the season. Coffee drinkers will receive cups already adorned with designs and ones without, but Starbucks encourages people to draw in their own as well.

The colorful cups will be available at participating locations starting March 16. A second added: "Sister, after learning of the new pastel #Starbucks cups: 'I can feel the flower crown growing out of my head!'" But the pastel designs are only in stores for a few days. Just think of how good they are going to look on Instagram.

There are three colors featured: yellow, green and blue.

Trade barriers could threaten global growth, OECD warns
The organization noted the global economy remains in a "low-growth trap". That follows global growth of three per cent a year ago . Yet the OECD's forecast is loaded with caution.


Starbucks first began offering seasonal cups more than 20 years ago with its holiday cup and has since introduced cups celebrating autumn and summer.

They might be just the thing to get us past these winter doldrums.
