People Are Loving This Shiny New Mermaid Cup At Starbucks

Posted at 9:05 AM, Jan 14, 2020

Need a little more magic in your life? Look no further than the new mermaid tumbler from Starbucks. The venti-sized tumbler has an iridescent and shiny design that resembles mermaid scales and comes complete with the brand’s mermaid logo in the center.

Ideal for keeping iced drinks cold, the insulated tumbler is a must for anyone who loves the fantastic creatures from folklore. Reports say that these whimsical cups are flying off store shelves quickly, so it may be difficult to track one down.

Instagrammer @savyfinds was able to find one at their local Starbucks for $16.95, but notes that it was the only mermaid tumbler in stock at that store:

“@Starbucks new #mermaidtumbler is absolutely gorgeous I couldn’t help myself,” reads the caption. “If you want this cup my store only had one $16.95.”

The coffee chain also released their Valentine’s Day collection, and it’s full of love-themed products that are perfect for Cupid’s big day. There are also some cute mice-themed items; these refer to the Chinese New Year, which takes place on January 25. This will be the Year of the Rat.

Instagram user @vuittongirly posted a photo of some of the mugs and tumblers that are a part of the line, and they’re so cute:

A selection of the new offerings was also posted by @starbucks_mermaid_23.

Check out this glittery pink and orange tumbler, posted to Instagram by a user named Lindsay at @targetingit:

“I found this Starbucks tumbler at a Target Starbucks near me in Florida,” she explained in the caption. “It’s $18.95 and 24 fl oz. I called a few Starbucks near me and they did not have it in but it sounds like it will be soon! I would call before going specifically for this.”

The exact products you can buy most likely depends on what’s in stock at your local Starbucks.

New merchandise is not the only recent news from Starbucks. They also just added two new dairy-free drinks to the menu: the Almondmilk Honey Flat White and the Coconutmilk Latte. They also added oat milk as an option at 1,300 stores in select states. And stay tuned, because we’re sure the chain will add some exciting Valentine’s Day-themed drinks in the weeks coming up.
