I had not heard of S’well bottles until today when I walked into Starbucks and saw these somewhat-out-of-place vibrant orange bottles. On one side it said S’well, on the other was a picture of the Hawaiian islands along with the text Starbucks Hawaii.
Swell bottles are stainless steel and double insulated like many others out there and keep drinks hot or cold for 24 hours. So what’s the big deal about Swell? It’s gotta be the fashion aspect. Yes, they do look swell. I thought the cover color should have been more Starbucks green but still this is a nice looking bottle. Worth $35 I’m not sure, but because of its stylish looks, usefulness, and branding, I’m thinking these will sell well for the upcoming holiday season.
Okay, okay, so I complained that Hawaii got oat cakes instead of online pre-ordering and the Chestnut Praline Latte, but I will admit that this Hawaii-specific item is pretty and cool.
