In Japan, Starbucks is now serving pudding cups, or 'Starbucks Purin,' which is based on the traditional soft and creamy Japanese purin dessert.
The pudding snacks come in milk custard and chocolate flavors, but what consumers may find most interesting is that they are packaged in stubby cups that resemble the iconic beverage containers used by the brand.
In addition to featuring the minimalist white and green design that the brand is known for, Starbucks Japan is also releasing a special-edition holiday design that reminds of its iconic Red Cup. These seasonal pudding cups are marked with heartwarming messages like: "Have a good day!" "Good luck" and "Thank you" that appear in the same handwritten style as a barista's writing.
