The Night Before (Costa) Christmas!

I was super excited when I got an email from Costa inviting me to their Night Before Christmas event. Every year Costa bring out a new range of drinks and treats to help us get in the  Christmas spirit and to celebrate their launch they offered loyalty card holders like myself the chance to buy them the night before they went on general sale (with a triple point bonus!). Having only been in Costa a couple of weeks ago and being disappointed that the Christmas range wasn't yet on sale - yes I know it's only November but a girl can dream! - I was thrilled to get my hands on them.

Harry and I popped in after work to see what was on offer and were really spoilt for choice. The selection includes Black Forest, Brownie, White Chocolate, and Chocolate Orange flavoured hot chocolates, as well as Gingerbread & Cream, and Sticky Toffee flavoured Lattes. For a sweet treat they offered traditional Mince Pies, Cherry & Almond and Gingerbread Muffins, a Salted Caramel Yule Log and a Honeycomb Crunch Slice. For lunch you can also grab a Turkey & Trimmings toastie.

For our first visit I opted for the White Hot Chocolate with a Gingerbread Muffin, while Harry ordered the Orange Hot Chocolate and Jaffa Cake to takeaway in the super cute Christmas cups. As we both ordered a regular drink we were both given cups with the Snowman design. Both the drinks were creamy and delicious but if we had to choose, we both agreed that the Orange Hot Chocolate tasted better than the White. Harry loved his Jaffa Cake and my Gingerbread Muffin was so so good, I love the warming ginger spice, the sweet taste of the icing and the gooey ginger sauce in the centre just tops it all off! With Costa just around the corner from our flat we are in real danger of popping in time and time again for these yummy Christmas treats!
