Costa Coffee is well and truly warming up for winter after unveiling three new limited edition drinks to its festive food and drinks range.
The “countdown to Christmas is on” at Costa.
After over a week of teasing the new editions to this year’s winter menu, the popular coffee shop chain has finally made the announcement this morning that it has “teamed up with all your festive favourites” to bring a trio of indulgent hot drinks to stores nationwide at the start of next month.
The Terry’s Chocolate Orange Hot Chocolate, the After Eight Hot Chocolate, and The Purple One Latte will all be available to try out from next Tuesday, and given this is one of the first times Costa has collaborated with some of the nation’s favourite festive chocolate treats, you can bet people are excited.
The announcement has already racked up thousands of interactions, shares and comments on all social platforms after just a few short hours since posting.
Luckily for fans of Costa’s Christmas drinks from previous years though, these three new indulgent offerings aren’t arriving in replacement of any usual festive favourites.
The chain also confirmed via Twitter this morning that the much-loved Black Forest Hot Chocolate, Gingerbread & Cream Latte, Irish Velvet Latte, Cinnamon Spiced Cappuccino, and Spiced Apple will all be returning to the Christmas menu this year.
The announcement of this new festive hot drink team up comes after Costa unveiled its festive food menu for 2020 a few weeks back, which sees lots of new items introduced and some fan-favourites return.
On the savoury side, this year’s new food range includes the Lobster Toastie, British Pork & Bramley Apple Sausage roll, British Turkey & The Trimmings Toastie, Brie, Maple Bacon & Cranberry Stonebaked Panini, Vegan Turkee, Cranberry & Stuffing Bloomer Toastie, and Pigs under Blankets Stonebaked Panini and Pigs & Blankets Mac and Cheese.
If you’re after something sweet, you can try out the new After Eight Muffin and Terry’s Chocolate Orange Muffin to accompany your hot chocolate.
Or try the new Vegan Lotus Biscoff Cheezecake, Vegan Father Christmas Gingerbread, the gluten-free Vegan Christmas Fruit Cake, the gluten-free Vegan Mince Tart, Rich Chocolate & Hazelnut Shimmer Cake, Jammin’ in the Chimney Cake, a range of Panettones, and so much more.
You can also take your pick of plenty of returning festive indulgences too.
Speaking on the unveiling of the new food menu, Cathy Port – Head of Food at Costa Coffee – said: “Christmas has always been such a magical time of year at Costa Coffee and we know that this year in particular, our customers are looking to us to make the festive period that extra bit more special.
“We’re incredibly proud to launch our 2020 limited edition Christmas food menu, which we believe is our best yet.
“It features so many iconic products, which we know our customers have raved about, but also brings in some phenomenal new innovations and partnerships to excite and delight returning and new customers. From the decadent Lobster Toastie to the Vegan Turkee, Cranberry & Stuffing Bloomer Toastie and the iconic new muffin collections, there’s something for everyone.”
Costa’s Christmas Food & Drinks menu will be available at branches nationwide from Tuesday 3rd November.
