It’s beginning to *taste* a lot like Christmas!

Okay so we know it’s only November, but we can’t help feeling festive now that we’ve seen Costa Coffee’s new Christmas menu! We can’t wait for their arrival on 3rd November and we are already planning multiple trips to sample the whole menu.

Join us in welcoming some new delicious treats and our returning favourites – here’s the line up…

The latest 3 additions are the chocaholic’s dream. Introducing the Quality Street – The Purple One Latte, Terry’s Chocolate Orange Hot Chocolate and After Eight Hot Chocolate. We heard The Purple One comes with a rich caramel chocolate sauce and roasted hazelnut syrup, topped with a light dairy swirl. Plus, you get an actual Purple One chocolate with every coffee!

Alongside this delicious trio, the much-loved Gingerbread Cream Latte is returning, with the iconic Black Forest Hot Chocolate & Cream, Cinnamon Spiced Cappuccino, Velvet Cream Latte and Irish Velvet Cream Hot Chocolate… how will we ever choose?!

Now let’s talk about food, particularly the sweet kind! There’s a tasty, peppermint filled After Eight muffin and a tangy Terry’s Chocolate Orange one too. And that’s not it for sweet treats: introducing the new Rich Chocolate & Hazelnut Shimmer Cake. Made with three layers of dark chocolate sponge, sandwiched together by a delicate hazelnut and chocolate frosting, each slice is topped with hazelnuts, dark chocolate curls and gold dusting.

For those who prefer something a bit more savoury, there’s a new Lobster Toastie and a Turkey & Trimmings Toastie on Costa’s menu this year. Featuring responsibly sourced lobster, a rich béchamel sauce and topped with a selection of delicious cheeses, all enclosed in a parsley crumb topped seeded malted bloomer bread, we think the Lobster Toastie is going to be a particularly popular choice this season!

So who’s feeling hungry? We know we are!
