Take That, Starbucks! Dunkin' Donuts Unveils Their Holiday Cups


Dunkin' Donuts unveiled their holiday cups and they feature Christmas iconography -- narrowly avoiding another Starbucks-esque controversy.

The Dunkin' Donuts holiday cups will feature a wreath circling the word "Joy."



"For many years Dunkin' Donuts has served coffee in festive cups featuring the word 'joy' as part of our annual celebration of the season and holiday offerings," a spokesperson said in a statement.

"We believe this conveys the happiness and spirit of the holiday season in a way that resonates with our guests."

The coffee and doughnut chain released their holiday cups on the heels of Evangelical Christians becoming enraged over the lack of Christmas iconography on Starbucks' red cups.

They claimed Starbucks was single-handedly starting a "war on Christmas" because their holiday cups didn't have any Christmas trees, stockings, candy canes, sleigh bells, or Santas.

A Starbucks employee writes a message on a cup of freshly brewed coffee at a local store in Washington, DC on December 26, 2012. Starbucks stirred the political pot Wednesday by urging its baristas to write 'come together' on its cups as a way to pressure US lawmakers to compromise on a deal to avert a year-end fiscal crisis. Starbucks chief executive Howard Schultz said the American coffee giant was recommending its first-ever message on the side of tall, grande and venti (small, medium and large) drinks sold at its Washington stores as a way to help break the capital's gridlock on the so-called 'fiscal cliff.' Lawmakers and the White House have less than a week to work out a deal aimed at preventing tax hikes from hitting all Americans and a series of deep, mandated spending cuts from kicking in beginning January 1.
