WINTER IS COMING

Costa fans can tuck into a new After Eight muffin as part of the coffee chain’s Christmas menu for 2020.

The sweet delicacy consists of a chocolate muffin filled with a peppermint flavoured sauce, crowned with white icing and completed with an After Eight.

The new muffin will be available from November 3, with prices starting from £1.97.

The coffee chain is also bringing out a lobster toastie for customers who want to feel grandiloquent over the festive season.

Priced from £5, the toastie will be made from responsibly sourced lobster and béchamel sauce, crowned with a selection of cheeses in a parsley crumb topped seeded malted bloomer bread.

Prices will vary depending on which Costa you go to, so you may end up spending slightly more than this for these products.

The new toastie will be incorporated in the Costa £5 meal deal, where you get a drink and a choice of food from a limited selection for a fiver.

Also new for Christmas 2020 is pork and Bramley apple sausage roll and vegan ‘turkee’ cranberry and stuffing toastie.

In terms of sweet stuff, there’s a vegan Lotus Biscoff ‘cheezecake’ and festive crispy chocolate stars.

Costa will be releasing Christmas gift sets too, including a Belgian chocolate tasting experience for £5.

This consists of three Belgian chocolates and a handcrafted hot drink, plus a Costa gift card with £3.40 on it.

Fans will also be pleased to know that Costa is bringing back its Terry’s Chocolate Orange muffin from Christmas 2019.

It will be priced at £1.97 this year, down from the £2.25 it once cost, due to Costa cutting prices after VAT was slashed for hospitality businesses.

If you’re already planning on tucking in, use the Costa store finder to locate your nearest branch. Costa has more than 2,600 stores nationwide.

Sadly, it doesn’t look like the caramelised orange and cream range from last year will be coming back.

Costa has only just released details of its autumn menu and it includes a gingerbread latte. The coffee chain has also announced a new caramel apple tart.

And in the face of one of the least predictable Christmases we’ve encountered in recent history, one thing we can look forward to with some certitude is the arrival of some delectable festive fares.

From M&S and Waitrose to Tesco and Morrisons, the supermarkets are already unveiling their line ups to whet our appetites in advance.

Christmas has always been such a magical time of the year at Costa Coffee, and this year, their customers will be looking to them to make the festive period that bit more memorable, and if you weren’t hungry before, you’ll be hungry now.

Of course, we all know it’s about advertising, but clearly, these delicious delights are worth trying, even though we’re still enjoying the unusually warm autumn weather, but Christmas is only around the corner and this year’s seasonal coffee cups are about to start coming your way.

Costa, has just announced it will launch its festive takeaway cups on Tuesday 3 November, alongside a brand new food and drink menu, but what is Christmas without a Costa Coffee Christmas Cup?

This year’s Costa Christmas cups feature five new limited-edition designs, motivated by finding joy in the big and little moments. The cup designs feature:

The Rabbit and the Gingerbread Man posting their letter to Father Christmas (Mini)

The Gingerbread Man and Penguin are readying the festive decorations (Small)

The Polar Bear and the Penguin find the perfect tree (Medium)

The Rabbits build and decorate a majestic Snowman (Medium)

The Foxes merrily dance with gifts (Large)

And the limited edition Costa Coffee Christmas cups are completely recyclable, and also so adorable.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
