Costa welcomes winter warmers


Costa has revealed a Terry’s Chocolate Orange muffin and an Irish velvet latte is on the menu this Christmas.

The nationwide coffee chain has also announced its festive cups will make a return when the new menu comes out on 1 November.

The new Terry’s Chocolate Orange muffin is filled with chocolate orange sauce and topped with a delicious segment of the iconic chocolate orange.

And on the drinks menu, Costa say the "real showstopper" this Christmas season is the new Irish Velvet range, which combines hints of caramel and vanilla to form an Irish coffee flavour drink.

There is also a festive spiced cappuccino which is seasoned with spices including cinnamon, nutmeg and star anise.

The new festive drinks join Costa Coffee’s Christmas beverages which include black forest and cream hot chocolate and gingerbread and hazelnut praline.

Launching for the first time is the limited edition Christmas tea, a blend of Sri Lankan tea leaves and aromatic winter spice. 

For something sweet to go with your hot drink, there is a new black and white forest wreath cake, a festive treat consisting of chocolate sponge with sweetened cherries topped with buttercream, sour cherries and dark chocolate.

There is also the salted caramel yule log, a chocolate sponge hand-rolled with chocolate flavour buttercream, covered with a milk chocolate frosting and finished with lustred chocolate decorations and a salted caramel drizzle.

Also snowballing into stores is the clementine and mascarpone loaf cake, a balance of sweet, rich cream and tart, zesty orange.

For something more traditional, try the Good Housekeeping Institute taste approved mince pie and the vegan and gluten-free mince tart.

You can also tuck into Penelope polar bear cake, Peter penguin shortcake and Father Christmas mallow gingerbread.

Is Christmas even Christmas without roasted turkey and all the trimmings? On the menu this year is the all new turkey and trimmings toastie as well as the Turkey feast baguette.

These new additions join returning fan favourites, including the pigs in blankets mac and cheese, beef and caramelised onion baguette and brie, bacon and cranberry panini, all back with new and improved recipes.

Throughout the festive season, the lunch bundle is available for £4.95 from 11am every day.

New for this year is the Vegan Society-approved 'Veggies Under Vest' sandwich, a vegan lunch option filled with falafel and parsnip stuffing, carrot, cranberry sauce, vegan mayonnaise and fresh spinach.

There is also a vegan and gluten-free mince tart, vegan rocky road and gluten-free and vegan rich fruit Christmas cake slice, all making their Christmas menu debut.

Eric Tavoukdjian, Commercial Marketing Director at Costa Coffee said: “Christmas is always such a magical time of year at Costa Coffee and we’re incredibly excited to launch our best menu to date.

"The new Irish Velvet family is sure to be a big hit and the Terry’s Chocolate Orange Muffin will be making thousands of chocoholics wishes come true. We hope families and friends are inspired to come together and enjoy a Christmas treat in-store this season.”
