Starbucks on Thursday revealed the lineup for its holiday drinks and pastries, including Peppermint Mocha, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha, Caramel Brulée Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, Gingerbread Latte and Eggnog Latte.

On Friday, Nov. 2, the Seattle-based coffee chain will give out a reusable red cup to anyone who purchases one of their holiday drinks, as long as they're still in stock at the store.

Then, between Nov. 3, 2018 and Jan. 7, 2019, when the cup is brought back to a Starbucks store after 2 p.m., customers will receive 50 cents off their grande drink order.

The company also unveiled four cup designs, which have been the center of controversy in recent years with some accusing the cups of not being "Christmasy enough." 

They also have three new treats: Chocolate Swirl Brioche, Pistachio Honey Croissant the Sugarplum Cheese Danish.
