Along with some festive drinks, Costa has decided to bring back its mighty mince pie due to popular demand.

There’s also a gluten-free vegan mince tart available too.

It’s usually a sign that Christmas is quickly approaching when they swap their menu for seasonal offerings and introduce new cups.

That’s the case with Costa and the sixth festive cup design is usually synonymous with the season.

Indeed, previously their customers have taken to social media to share pictures of the cups.

Costa says the limited-edition cups are available

Popular coffee chain Costa has unveiled its Christmas menu and cups in time for the festive season.

Costa says the limited-edition cups are available in their stores and the four new additions are strikingly different from the firm’s usual red and white design.

They are representative of all elements of Christmas from Rudolph the Reindeer to mystical snow globes and are available in bronze, red and purple and teal.

The new menu also includes a Christmas cheeseboard panini, pigs in blankets, mac & cheese and the Ultimate Christmas toastie.

Among the new drinks to enjoy are the Black Forest hot chocolate as well as the gingerbread and cream latte making a return by popular demand.

New additions include hazelnut praline cream and caramelised orange and cream in either a hot chocolate or latte choice.

For those who like small offerings of indulgence, there are small cups of luxury caramel or luxury chocolate available too.

‘Start of the festive season at Costa’

A spokesman for the firm said: “The Christmas cups release marks the start of the festive season at Costa. We can’t wait for these new designs and our customer reactions.

“The Christmas drinks menu is the perfect festive match and with delicious new creations and old favourites to enjoy we help to spread Christmas cheer.”
