Costa Coffee Christmas

For maybe the first time ever I am properly in the Christmas spirit way before December even starts! I've started my Christmas shopping and know pretty much what I'm getting everyone, I've planned some festive days out and may have even listened to the Christmas playlists...
The event that started this festive feeling was a trip to Costa Coffee recently to try out their incredible Christmas menu that's available now until the 4th of January!

I'm not a coffee drinker but I love Hot Chocolate, even more so when it comes in a cute Christmas cup. Costa have brought back their fun, festive cups with four designs for the different sizes.
This year the Christmas menu has a line up of 8 limited edition drinks, I've tried them all and they are rather special, there is definitely a drink for everyone!

Hot Chocolates
Brownie Hot Chocolate- Hot Chocolate with a shot of walnut brownie syrup, topped with cream and brownie pieces
Orange Hot Chocolate- Hot Chocolate with a shot of orange syrup, topped with Magic Dust and a chocolate lattice
White Hot Chocolate- White Chocolate Sauce with steamed milk, topped with cream, cherry sauce and sparkles
Black Forest Hot Chocolate- Hot Chocolate with a shot of blackberry syrup, topped with cream, herry sauce and dark chocolate curls

Other Drinks
Sticky Toffee Latte- Espresso with steamed milk and sticky toffee sauce, topped with cream
Praline Cappuccino- Espresso with praline syrup, topped with frothed milk and Magic Dust
Gingerbread & Cream Latte- Espresso with steamed milk and gingerbread syrup, topped with cream, a mini gingerbread man and sparkle
Hot Spiced Apple- Hot Spiced Apple with star anise and a cinnamon stick

There are also both savoury and sweet Christmas menus full of festive flavours! The savoury menu includes a Turkey and the Trimmings Toastie, a Gluten free Turkey, Bacon and Cranberry Wrap and a Cheeseboard Panini with festive chutney. The sweet menu has some amazing treats, but my absolute favourites are the Salted Caramel Yule Log, Ice Your Own Gingerbread Man and Cornflake Crunch. There are 14 sweet treats to try out in total!

I've already been back to costa three times in the past week to keep trying everything out. MY current obsession is the Orange Hot Chocolate with the Salted Caramel Yule Log!
Have you tried anything from the Costa Christmas Menu?

*I was invited to try out Costa's Christmas Menu at an Event, this is not a sponsored post. I just wanted to share the festive tastiness! 


  1. I've been twice and honestly Black Forest hot chocolate wins hands down every time. I've tried the chocolate orange one but couldn't finish it before I started feeling sick, I only got medium. x
