Winter coffee fans rejoice, as Costa has announced its highly anticipated Christmas menu for 2021.
The chain will bring back its much loved collaboration with Quality Street this year – with a Toffee Penny Latte joining the ranks of the mocha treats alongside a Purple One Latte.
Inspired by Quality Street’s The Purple One, the latte features a rich caramel chocolate sauce and roasted hazelnut syrup, topped with a light dairy swirl, and drizzled with a caramel chocolate sauce.
Meanwhile the new addition to the menu, the Toffee Penny Latte has been blended with a rich golden caramel sauce, topped with a light dairy swirl, and sprinkled with crunchy caramel toppers to perfectly capture the buttery caramel notes of the nation’s much-loved Quality Street Toffee Penny sweet.
What’s more, fans of Costa Coffee’s Terry’s Chocolate Orange Hot Chocolate and After Eight Hot Chocolate will also see their favourites return to the menu line up for the festive season.

‘This time of year is all about catching up with a friend or taking time out from a busy day of Christmas shopping and Costa Coffee has you covered.
‘We have welcomed back several drinks that we know our customers loved and are thrilled to launch a new innovation in the Quality Street® Toffee Penny Latte – we are confident it will be a new Christmas crowd pleaser!’
If the contents aren’t enough, Costa Coffee has also unveiled their Christmas cups for 2021.
The 2021 takeaway festive cups for Costa Coffee feature a penguin, a rabbit, a gingerbread person, a snowman and a bear – who can all be seen hugging the side of each of their cups surrounded by falling snow.
Any coffee lover who purchases a hot barista made drink across Costa Coffee stores or visits a Costa Express machine this winter will receive their purchase in one of these cups.
What’s more, as part of an ongoing effort to reduce its environmental impact, Costa Coffee is changing the lining of the inside of its takeaway cups to be plant-based plastic, rather than an oil based plastic.
The new lining will launch with the Christmas cups and is a permanent change going forward.
The plant-based plastic lined cups have a 26 per cent lower carbon footprint than Costa Coffee’s standard takeaway cup when recycled, which customers can do at any Costa Coffee store nationwide – just hand them over to a team member or pop them in a cup recycling bin.
Vegan Turkee, Cranberry & Stuffing Bloomer Toastie is also on the menu this year sure to delight those on plant based diets

It comes as Starbucks launched a drink for Halloween 2021.
The Cherry & Scream Frappuccino® Blended Beverage is a truly spook-tacular sip, combining the creamy taste of vanilla with tart, juicy cherry.

Each handcrafted beverage is finished with a gruesome green finger, clawing its way through the cream. Fear not, although this finger looks plucked straight from the hand of Frankenstein’s monster, it’s totally edible, if you dare!
Eye-ing up a spine-tingling snack to complement your drink? Look no further. The Chilling Cherry Cupcake will pair perfectly.
A vanilla cupcake with a sour cherry filling, whipped white chocolate frosting and decorated with a swirl of cherry drizzle and a white chocolate eyeball. Or why not try the Gingerbread Skeleton Biscuit, a subtly spiced ginger biscuit, hand-iced and dressed for trick-or-treating in a bewitching barista apron.
If you’re staying home to dish out the treats this Halloween, fear not! Order a Cherry & Scream Frappuccino® Blended Beverage direct to your door via Starbucks® Delivers, including with new delivery partner Deliveroo, now available in more than 400 stores nationwide.
