Starbucks' new cups for spring are here to brighten up your day

Starbucks' new cups for spring are here to brighten up your day

Can you please just draw the design in for us, Starbucks, and put a stop to this nonsense?

Holy Instagram opp, Batman - Starbucks just released its first ever line of spring cups, a lineup of pastel options for their hot beverage cups.

The new Starbucks seasonal cups will bring about spring with green, blue and yellow pastel colors.

However, it's always pretty easy to tell when the holiday season officially begins - Mariah Carey's voice is suddenly inescapable and people have a lot of opinions about the cups at Starbucks. They feature "white dots and hand-drawn designs including a sun and umbrella" - and seemingly also invite customers to create doodles of their own (much like the company did for last season's holiday cups).

Everything you need to know ahead of England v Scotland
So when was the last time Scotland actually beat England? "They have a bench which has been coming on and finishing games off". England inside-centre Owen Farrell suffered a big injury scare ahead of Saturday's clash with Scotland.

Starbucks cups are one of the most easily recognised symbols out there. (Probably not.) And even if we did have time, making a drawing look good on a coffee cup is even harder than making one look good on a flat surface. The official day of spring is March 20th, but Starbucks will release the colourful line on March 16th across the United States and Canada.

A news editor at the food website Eater has attempted to preempt some of the outrage.
