  • Starbucks has begun rolling out tumblers with a black-and-white, Halloween-themed pattern.
  • The cups glow in the dark.
  • Starbucks is also selling a six-pack of reusable cups with glow-in-the-dark lids for hot drinks.
  • While you can't use the cups in stores amid the pandemic, customers can show the new Halloween-themed tumbler when ordering for a 10-cent discount.

Fall is here for Starbucks, and that doesn't just mean new drinks.

The coffee retailer is already serving their fall menu, including the Pumpkin Spice Latte, but now their fall drink accessories are starting to roll out in stores too, and the most notable addition is a new glow-in-the-dark lineup.

The coffee company has officially begun rolling out glow-in-the-dark drinkware for both hot and cold beverages, a Starbucks spokesperson confirmed to Business Insider.

Details about the upcoming offerings began circulating on social media back in August. Instagram accounts @sirensaviors and @raindrop_resell previously posted about the new glow-in-the-dark tumbler, with the latter saying "I managed to find these and they haven't been released yet, the sku didn't even ring up," in their post, which was first spotted by BestProducts.

The venti-sized cup has a "bluish purple lid, a straw, and detailing, and the outside is covered in a black and white pattern with skull, moon, and bird designs," BestProducts reports. When in the dark, the white parts of the cup have a green glow.

The cup is also available in a tall size as well.

Starbucks is also selling a six-pack of glow-in-the-dark reusable cups for hot drinks, according to a company spokesperson.

Both of these cups are already becoming popular items on the resale market, with both types of cups being sold for as much as $50 on resale websites such as eBay and Poshmark.

Since the seasonal drinkware is still rolling out to stores, it's probably a good idea for shoppers looking to get their hands on the cups to call ahead to see if the store has any in stock.

And keep in mind that with pandemic policies in place, baristas won't be able to fill up your new cup with your favorite Starbucks drink inside the store. Starbucks suspended the use of reusable cups to help prevent the spread of coronavirus, but you can still show your glow-in-the-dark tumbler when ordering for a 10-cent discount.
