(FOX NEWS) - Think it's still too early to see holiday decorations everywhere you go?

Too bad, because Starbucks announced Thursday morning that its annual holiday cups will be available at locations nationwide starting Nov. 2, along with a slew of seasonal coffee flavors such as Peppermint Mocha, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha, Caramel Brulée Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, Gingerbread Latte and Eggnog Latte.

“Our customers have told us that the return of Starbucks holiday cups and beverages are a signal the season is upon us,” said Kristy Cameron of Starbucks’ creative team, per a news release. “We hope they feel the holiday magic that only Starbucks can create during this special time of year.”

This year’s "retro" cups are said to be inspired by the company’s "own story" and "heritage," per the release. For example, the "Stargyle" cup incorporates the stars seen in the Starbucks Siren’s crown, while the “Stripes” cup features a design mimicking the seam on a back of Starbucks coffee.
