When I started working at Starbucks I immediately heard the word “Cold Cup” being used. At first, I thought it was just a random cup name Starbucks had for its cold drinks just like they have special names for all their drinks, flavors, and products. However, it turned out that a Cold Cup was an actual product and not just another Starbucks product slang.

Cold Cups are meant for containing cold drinks, frozen drinks, and even ice cream.  They come in a clear visible cup design and vary on shape and cup size. The lids of cold cups come either flat or dome shape for space to add whip cream and other toppings.

You probably have already seen and even used a cold cup before, but now you’ll know what they exactly are.
