Costa has introduced some interesting new additions to its food offering to welcome in the new year, and you can even get 50% off this month.
Fans of the coffee shop chain will know Costa for its beloved and wide-ranging drinks menu that often changes as the seasons go by, but don’t go counting out its food selection just yet, especially as there are some tasty new additions to try out.
The sandwich that everyone seems to be talking about? That would be the new ‘Beanz & Cheese Toasie’.
Costa has teamed up with Heinz to combine two classic snacks – beans on toast, and cheese on toast – to give toastie lovers the exclusive ‘Beanz & Cheese Toastie’. Packed full of Heinz Baked Beans and mature cheddar cheese, this new menu stand-out delivers “the ultimate comforting toastie delight”.
And there’s even more on offer for vegans too, or those giving Veganuary a go.
In addition to the best-selling ‘Vegan Smoky Ham & Cheeze Toastie’ added to the menu last year, Costa has also introduced a new ‘Vegan BBQ Chick’n Panini’ with Vegan Chick’n, Texan-style BBQ sauce, roasted peppers and spinach in a stone-baked sourdough panini, and there’s also a twist on the classic sausage roll with the new ‘Vegan Roasted Butternut Squash Pastry Roll’ that’s filled with roasted butternut squash and red onion in a vegan puff pastry with a pumpkin and sunflower seed topping.
If it’s breakfast you’re after, there’s also a new ‘Veggie Breakfast Box’.
It includes a Quorn sausage, Heinz Baked Beans, roasted mushrooms, free range scrambled egg, spinach and topped with mature cheddar cheese, but if you’re not into veggie sausages, there’s the new ‘Ultimate Breakfast Wrap’ that’s made with free-range egg, Cumberland sausage and beechwood smoked bacon, topped with Heinz tomato ketchup in a tortilla wrap.
Costa hasn’t neglected those with a sweet tooth either.
The new sweet treats added to the menu this month include the mouthwatering ‘Caramel Munchies Muffin’, which is a melt-in-your-mouth caramel muffin made with chocolate chunks and biscuit balls, filled with a delightful chocolate caramel sauce, and topped with caramel icing and a Munchies chocolate.
There’s also a ‘Vegan Jamaican Ginger Loaf Cake’, as well as a ‘Strawberry Vegan Croissant’.
And in another twist, there’s also the new ‘Vegan Pick ‘n’ Mix’, which includes cola bottles, orange gummy bears, fried eggs, hearts and a mini Costa Coffee cup jelly.
2021 is already off to a better start than we were expecting.
If all that wasn’t as impressive enough as it is, if you’re looking to save a few pennies this month, then Costa customers can get also get a whopping 50% off all items from the food menu this month.
The deal has been introduced to celebrate the chain’s 50th birthday.
Available each Monday – Wednesday throughout January, the deal runs until Wednesday 3rd February and you can order either via Mobile Order for collection, or grab it to takeaway from stores across the country.

Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury reveal unusual baby name
Molly-Mae Hague has finally put the rumours to bed and revealed the name of her first baby with boxer boyfriend Tommy Fury.
Users on social media had been speculating on the name they would choose for their baby girl for weeks.
Many people believed that she would choose Nephele, which translates to ‘Cloud’ inGreek mythology.
That rumour kicked off because of all the cloud emojis the social media star was using in her posts about her pregnancy.
Molly-Mae and Tommy shared their happy news about their new arrival with a joint post last night, showing a black and white photo of the trio in hospital, captioned with the date of their baby’s birth – 23/01/23.
She then added further updates and adorable photos in her Instagram stories, writing: “One week old today. I can’t believe we get to keep you forever.
“Becoming your mum has been the best thing to ever happen to me… it doesn’t seem possible but my love for you grows with each passing moment.
“There is no feeling like holding you in my arms little one, my heart literally explodes.
“Thank you for entering the world safely for us and blessing us with the gift of being your parents.
“We promise to love and care for you unconditionally forever.”
Tommy posted: “I’ll protect you forever my little girl.”

Manchester Airport is hiring 1,500 new staff in preparation for a ‘busy summer’
Manchester Airport is looking to recruit 1,500 new staff members across the security, customer services, car parks, hospitality, and other sectors.
It’s all in preparation for what the Airport expects to be another “busy summer”.
Having already more recruited more than 700 new staff last year, the UK’s third largest airport wants to give potential new staff a taste at what it’s like to work there by hosting its very-own careers fair at Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday 7 February to showcase all the roles on offer within a wide range of sectors and companies inside the premises.
The Airport is preparing for a busy summer season as it enters its first full year free of COVID-related restrictions since 2019.
A total of 1,500 roles are on offer within sectors such as customer services, security, hospitality, and car parking.
More than 25 other firms with operations at the Airport will also be taking part in the jobs fair.

Attendees at the jobs fair will get the chance to engage directly with employers, put any questions they may have to those who are recruiting, and boost their chances of getting a job at the Airport.
They’ll also get to learn more about what employers are looking for from applicants.

“There is a wide range of opportunities available and I look forward to meeting the successful job-seekers out-and-about at the airport, following on from this event.”
