In China, there’s a similar double-walled cup being released today, 28 February and it comes with an adorable shape that resembles a cat paw.

And it’s driving fans crazy, literally to the point where there have been reports of people getting into arguments and fights over the cups.

So cute right?

Starbucks China is selling it at a pricey ¥199 (~S$40) but resellers are cashing in on the craze, selling them for as much as ¥1,800 (~S$363) online.

Buy it on Taobao.com (Tmall)

Want one? You can actually purchase it online from Starbucks China official Tmall Store with 1,000 cups up for grabs daily from 3pm onwards between 28 February to 3 March.

You might have to arrange shipping with your own forwarder in China though.
