Dunkin' Releases Festive 'Joy' Cups Amid Starbucks' Red Cup Controversy
Take that, Starbucks.
Dunkin' Donuts unveiled its winter holiday cups with the word "Joy" in red script surrounded by green pine branches.
The coffee-and-donut chain claims the move wasn't intended as a jab at Starbucks, which received some blowback from Christians for dropping Christmas imagery from its holiday cups.
Dunkin' has used "Joy" in similarly themed cups in previous years.

A Starbucks representative noted in response that the company has a Christmas coffee blend available in stores all over the world.
Some on Twitter are celebrating the new DD cups...
