You know it’s officially the festive season when Costa Coffee unveils its Christmas menu - and as ever there are some real treats in store… 

So, let’s dive straight in, look no further than the brand new Lotus Biscoff Cheezecake.

A little slice of luxury, this dessert is made with a Lotus Biscoff biscuit base, topped with a layer of velvety vegan cheeze, finished with Lotus Biscoff spread and sprinkled with Lotus Biscoff crumb - oh and it's vegan!

But this is just one of a few vegan additions to this year’s festive menu.

Dietary requirements are well ansd truly catered for this year with the new Vegan Father Christmas Gingerbread, the gluten-free Vegan Christmas Fruit Cake and returning fave, the gluten-free Vegan Mince Tart!

For those wirth a more robust constitution, there's the aforementioned After Eight Muffin - a chocolate muffin filled with peppermint flavoured sauce, topped with white icing with a classic After Eight chocolate perched atop.

For the chocolate orange fans out there you’ll be pleased to hear that Costa's hit Terry's Chocolate Orange Muffin is back for Christmas 2020. 

This little delight that first hit stores last year sees a chocolate muffin filled with chocolate orange sauce and of course topped off with a  segment of Chocolate Orange. 

Another brand new addition is the Rich Chocolate & Hazelnut Shimmer Cake which boasts three layers of dark chocolate sponge, sandwiched together with hazelnut and chocolate frosting with each slice topped with hazelnuts, dark chocolate curls and gold dusting. Fancy!

If all this is sounding a bit too sweet for you there’s also an indulgent-sounding new range of lunchtime faves, including a very fancy new Lobster Toastie.

Made with responsibly sourced Lobster, a rich creamy béchamel sauce, a selection of delicious cheeses, all enclosed in a parsley crumb topped seeded malted bloomer bread, I’m drooling just at the thought of this one!

Alongside this, there’s a British Pork & Bramley Apple Sausage roll and a British Turkey & The Trimmings Toastie, made with British turkey breast, British maple-cured smoked bacon, sage and onion stuffing and cranberry sauce all sandwiched between slices of cheese topped bread - Christmas Day in a sandwich essentially! 

The new festive menu launches in stores from Tuesday November 3rd, and I for one can’t wait!
