There's so much more to it than gingerbread lattes
The countdown to Christmas starts that bit earlier every year. Halloween is still weeks away and yet we’re already pining after the best beauty advent calendars and shopping for these amazing Harry Potter baubles.
Oh, and have you heard about the Aldi chocolate wine? We’re already planning to stock up when it goes on sale.
But things aren’t stopping there. Festive cheer – and menus – are cropping up everywhere, and Costa has just released a list of their own merry offerings, and we can’t wait to try it all.
Making a comeback this year are the black forest hot chocolate and the gingerbread and cream lattes, alongside some new flavours including caramelised orange and cream, hazelnut praline and cream, and gingerbread and cream – all of which are available as hot chocolates or as lattes.
Customers will also be able to get their hands on a luxury hot chocolate, described as ‘small but beautifully formed rich, dark and decadent.’ Fancy.
For coffee lovers, there will be a festive roast blend to sing to your tastebuds, but if you’d prefer something a little different you could try the new hot spiced apple or hot caramel drinks on offer.
There are also some sweet and savoury treats available, such as gluten free vegan mince tarts, gluten free vegan iced fruit slices, gingerbread and sticky toffee wreath cakes and clementine drizzle loaf cakes.
Plus a special mention to the pigs in blankets mac’n’cheese. Drool.
And let’s not forget a rather extensive variety of Christmas sandwiches, which also cater to veggies and vegans, will be hitting the shelves, fan faves being the Christmas cheese board panini and the veggie Christmas lunch wrap which includes sweet potato falafel with Wensleydale and cranberry cheese and spiced plum chutney.
The menu, as well as the Costa Christmas themed cups, launch on November 1st.
We’re ready and waiting…
