The days are getting shorter, the nights are getting colder and with Christmas now just two months away we're just about ready to spend our days snuggled up with a hot drink in hand watching Christmas TV specials and festive movies.
And now, stirring hot chocolate powder into a cup of boiling water just isn't going to cut it any more when it comes to enjoying a hot cup of cocoa. High street coffee shops are launching their Christmas menus up and down the country, and we think we might just have found our favourite festive drink already – all thanks to Costa.
The high-street coffee shop have unveiled their new festive menu, meaning that in the place of their classic hot chocolate, you can now get your hands on a rich and creamy Lindt Hot Chocolate.
Although the popular hot chocolate featured on their menu last year, this year Costa promise that it's 'bigger and better than ever' – meaning more delicious Lindt liquid chocolate in every cup.
As well as the delectable Lindt hot chocolate, the coffee chain is also adding a Billionaire's Hot Chocolate to their menu this year, which includes layers of caramel sauce, a freshly whipped cream topping and shortbread crumbs. We're not drooling, YOU are!
The Costa Christmas range is due to land in stores across the UK from Thursday 2nd November 2017, so you can have your first sip of sweet Lindt hot chocolate then.
You'll also be able to bite into your first Christmas sandwich of the season in between present shopping sessions, as Costa are releasing their festive food offering at the same time including a Festive Pigs in Blanket Panini or the Creamy Brie, Smoked Bacon & Cranberry Panini.
