COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) - Move over Halloween, Starbucks is marking the start of the holidays with the return of its annual holiday cups.

Starting Friday, the coffee giant is sharing four classic retro designs. The cups are inspired by Starbucks coffee heritage and holiday nostalgia.

Along with the new cups, several favorite holiday beverages are making a comeback. Peppermint Mocha, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha, Caramel Brulée Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, Gingerbread Latte and Eggnog Latte are the featured flavors this season.

Starbucks said customers who order a holiday beverage on Friday Nov. 2 get a free "Limited-Edition Reusable Red Holiday Cup," and an invitation to join the company in reducing the collective impact on the environment. Customers who get the reusable cup can also get a discount on holiday drinks after 2 p.m. from Nov. 3 to Jan. 7.
