Many coffee drinkers strongly prefer either Starbucks or Dunkin' Donuts (at least, those of us not on the west coast who have the luxury of enjoying both) but now it seems that some people are more concerned as to what is on their coffee cup than what is in it. This year, what's on Dunkin' Donuts holiday cup is a design that totally screams Christmas, with a red and green design featuring a Christmas wreath with the word "Joy" in the middle.
Check out this side by side comparison of the cups. Is Dunkin' Donuts totally throwing shade Starbucks' way?
So far Dunkin' Donuts hasn't made a comment about whether the cup has anything to do with Starbucks' lack of Christmas imagery, but if they're going for a design that will win over Starbucks haters, I think the company has succeeded. Your move, Starbucks.
