Starbucks’ annual red holiday cups are already back in stores, but a recent tweet about them has Taylor Swift fans thinking something else may be up.

The coffee chain recently tweeted, “It’s Red Season,” along with coffee, sparkle, scarf and heart emojis. All the things Taylor mentioned in an Instagram video promoting her upcoming release “Red (Taylor’s Version),” which drops Friday.

That, of course, has led Swifties to speculate that Starbucks and Taylor have some sort of “Red” tie-in in the works, with Starbucks adding fuel to the fire by responding to questions about it with, “We know all too well how exciting this time of year is, and we’ll forever & always love it. Our red holiday cups and drinks are back!” For all you non Swifties, “All Too Well” is a song on the album. They also quoted Tay songs “Holy Ground” and “Begin Again

And one Twitter post allegedly featured a letter that went out to Starbucks employees claims the tie-in, which starts Friday, will feature Taylor’s music being played in stores, customers being invited to enjoy Tay’s favorite Starbucks beverage, a Grande Caramel Non-fat Latte, and labels featuring “(Tay’s)” in the label name alongside the beverage.

So far neither Starbucks or Taylor has confirmed any possible tie-in, but fans are certainly excited by the idea. Check out reactions below:
