Costa Christmas

A little while ago I was very kindly invited to preview the new Costa menu before it went on sale to the general public. Lucky me eh? I'm going to hold my hands up here and admit that i'm not a regular hot drink drinker and coffee isn't really my thing. But I loved the Orange Hot Chocolate. It was perfectly decedent and had a lovely aftertaste. The White Hot Chocolate was a treat! I couldn't manage the whole drink as it was very rich but richness is what you want at Christmas right? If you can't go all out during the festive season, then when can you?

The Hot Spiced Apple tasted just like cider but without the alcohol. The cinnamon stick was a great touch and really added to the flavour. The treats? Oh my, they were delicious! If I had to pick, my favourites was the giant mince pie - which i've had twice since - and the childhood favourite cornflake cake with a festive holly leaf.

We were also kindly given a voucher to try their festive sandwiches range and I made a beeline for the Cheese Board Panini. It makes me sad that it's only limited edition as I could eat it every day for lunch! I'm already planning my third one in the space of a few weeks. It's perfect for any cheese lover and the tangy cranberry sauce helps to enhance it rather than overwhelm it!

The Brie, Bacon and Cranberry Panini is next on my list. Sounds yummy eh?

Have you tried their Christmas menu yet?


  1. Oooooooooh that is lucky! If there's one thing I love it's Christmas drinks :) I had 5 the week they were launched! Oooooops! My favourites from the Costa menu is the Black Forest Hot Choc and the gingerbread muffin .. unfortunately I'm not a huge fan of Costa's cakes - I find them very dry and disappointing!

    I much prefer Starbucks nowadays - their Christmas stuff is amazing - the Almond and Honey Hot Chocolate .. yummmmmmmmmmmmm!!! They do the most amazing mince pies as well .. you really must go and try!
