Costa's Christmas Range Launches Today!

Chris and I are big Costa fans and I always say that it isn't Christmas until the coffee shops bring out their Christmas range. Today is that day for Costa!

Costa's limited-edition Christmas menu consists of eight festive drinks.

Their new Praline Cappuccino is made with a shot of Espresso, topped with frothed milk and a sprinkle of Costa's famous Magic Dusting. You can also try their comforting Gingerbread & Cream Latte, rich Sticky Toffee Latte, Hot Spiced Apple or, and as a hot chocolate fanatic I'm very excited about this, four hot chocolate flavours; Brownie Hot Chocolate, White Hot Chocolate, Black Forest Hot Chocolate and Orange Hot Chocolate. I may have to try them all!

In addition to beverages, Costa have also added some festive sweet snacks to their range. Their new Mini Tartlets which are pastry encasing three delicious fillings; chocolate & cherry, orange & cranberry and caramel hazelnut. You can also purchase Salted Caramel Yule Log, Mince Tart and a Festive Teacake.

As if Costa aren't spoiling us enough they are also launching festive savoury items; Brie, Bacon & Cranberry Paninis and Cheeseboard Paninis with Festive Chutney. One thing that I'm really glad to see on the menu are gluten-free items in the form of British Turkey, Bacon & Cranberry gluten-free wraps and gluten-free Christmas Fruitcake. My best friend suffers from coeliac disease and when we meet up we struggle to find somewhere suited to her. It's great that Costa are ensuring that customers with gluten intolerances won't have to miss out.

Lastly, back by popular demand, are their festive takeaway cups; Rudolph (Primo), Snowman (Medio), Elf (Espresso/Cortado) and Santa (Massimo). For the first time ever you will be able to buy ceramic versions of the cups for £7.95. They are insanely cute and would make a great Christmas gift!
