The weather has that familiar nip in the air, the evenings are getting shorter, and Christmas is just around the corner.

There’s nothing like the Christmas season; the familiar music, the buzz in the air, and the delectable festive food on offer.

One retailer is granting all our festive foodie wishes this season – Costa Coffee, who this week launched their limited edition Christmas menu.

Filling their signature cups this holiday season are some new winter warmers, as well as exciting additions to their long standing and much loved Christmas range.

One of the stand out items this year is the Irish coffee flavour range, with four delectable drinks for coffee lovers to sample.

The range includes Irish Coffee Flavour Latte, Cappuccino, Hot Chocolate and an indulgent Irish Coffee Flavour Frostino. The new Christmas creation combines hints of caramel with vanilla, with the café giant billing it as ‘Christmas in a Cup’.

Also returning are much-loved returning fan favourites, including the Black Forest & Cream Hot Chocolate, Gingerbread and Hazelnut Praline.

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

On the food side of things, try the new Terry’s Chocolate Orange muffin, available exclusively to Costa. Filled with chocolate orange sauce and topped with a delicious segment of the iconic chocolate orange, it’s a decadent treat.

Other new additions include the Black & White Forest wreath cake, the salted caramel yule log, and the Clementine & Mascarpone loaf cake.

Costa Coffee’s Christmas menu is available now, with all new menu items subject to availability.
