The Nation’s Favourite Coffee Shop*, Costa Coffee, is stepping into Christmas by announcing its tree-mendous limited-edition festive food and drinks range. It’s bound to be love at frost sight, with fan favourites making a triumphant return, along with some delicious new festive surprises. A latte love has gone into creating the new menu which will be available across Costa Coffee stores and Costa Express self-serve machines from 3 November.
Ding dong, there’s a new duo in town
For the first time, Costa Coffee is showcasing two brand new stars as part of its festive drinks menu, bringing a Latte inspired by Toblerone®. This true classic has been given a festive makeover thanks to the addition of indulgent chocolate and honey-flavour sauce that’s inspired by the iconic Toblerone® taste. It is topped with a light dairy swirl and a festive twinkle topper. And for that extra bit of seasonal magic, it also comes with a wrapped Toblerone® tiny bar to enjoy on the side.
To make your Christmas a chocolatey one, why not try the new Hot Chocolate inspired by Toblerone®? This fan-favourite has an exclusive twist, as sweet Hot Chocolate powder has been carefully blended with the bespoke chocolate and honey-flavour sauce that is inspired by the iconic Toblerone® taste. It is finished with a light dairy swirl and a festive twinkle topper and has a moreish side addition of a wrapped Toblerone® tiny bar.
Just like Santa Claus wouldn’t work without his trusty elves, why not pair one of the new drinks inspired by Toblerone® with the new Chocolate Muffin inspired by Toblerone®? This luxury chocolate muffin is packed with milk chocolate chunks and chopped almonds, filled with a velvety chocolate sauce, topped with chocolate icing and finished with a Toblerone® tiny bar.
And fans of Costa Coffee’s Gingerbread & Cream Latte and Terry’s Chocolate Orange® Hot Chocolate rejoice as these delicious favourites return to the Christmas line-up. You can even complement it perfectly with the returning Terry’s Chocolate Orange® Muffin, filled with chocolate orange sauce and topped with icing and a delicious segment of the iconic Terry’s Chocolate Orange®.
Christmas on the go with Costa Express
Spreading even more festive cheer, Costa Express has a range of new self-serve drinks that are perfect to enjoy on a crisp wintery walk. Available from over 12,000 Costa Express machines nationwide, why not try the new Latte inspired by Toblerone® or the new Hot Chocolate inspired by Toblerone®. Both drinks feature the delectable chocolate and honey-flavour sauce that’s inspired by the iconic Toblerone® taste.
And if that is not enough, exclusively in over 500 Shell sites nationwide, you can get your hands on the returning Terry’s Chocolate Orange Hot Chocolate® that features that distinctive festive taste and has been flavoured with bespoke orange flavour syrup inspired by Terry’s Chocolate Orange®.

Everyone knows the festive season officially starts with a bite of the iconic M&S Turkey Feast Sandwich. Now, as part of its exciting collaboration with M&S Food, lucky Costa Coffee customers can also start the Christmas countdown with the original Turkey Feast, plus a whole host of other festive M&S lunchtime options.
