Starbucks’ New Logo + 5 Starbucks Copycat Recipes!

See the green circle with the words “Starbucks Coffee” on that cup?  Say goodbye to it!  Starbucks has officially changed their logo, stripping away their company name and leaving only the mermaid behind! Read all about the new logo and get 5 Starbucks copycat recipes after the jump!

The signature mermaid that has made Starbucks famous will now be their sole representative, as words will no longer be incorporated into the logo.  The mermaid will change from black to green and she will also be made larger.  Click here to see the entire evolution of the Starbucks logo.

What do you think of Starbucks’ redesign choices?  I think they’ve made a pretty gutsy move.  What company would EVER want to take their company name out of their logo?  It’d be like Coca-Cola taking away their signature cursive name and just selling red and white cans.  It can be done, but it’s really risky.

I think it’s also a little bit cocky, too.  It’s as if they think everyone on the planet already knows who they are, so don’t need to include their name anymore.  Who knows- maybe they’re right!

If you think you know company logos like the back of your hand, take this fun quiz!

I, for one, don’t go to Starbucks (or any coffee places, for that matter), so this doesn’t really affect me.  I prefer to make my own coffee and tea.  You can make your own coffee at home, too- even Starbucks’ style!

Try one of these Starbucks’ copycat recipes and you’ll definitely end up saving a few bucks.
