Costa Coffee's takeaway cups are about to get a festive makeover

The minute Halloween is over it's operation Christmas.

We're talking November 1 for many retailers who'll be ripping off the cobweb and pouring out the fake snow as they launch their Christmas menus, gift wrapping services and Santa visits across the country.

One chain in particular that's hopping on the bandwagon stat is Costa Coffee.

Launching their festive menu and caa-ute Christmassy cups the day after Halloween, we're already game to sample the fruits of their holiday menu.

New to the menu will be the Irish Velvet range. We're talking an Irish Velvet Latte, Irish Velvet Cappuccino, Irish Velvet Hot Chocolate and an Irish Velvet Frostino with hints of caramel and vanilla.

Also back is the Black Forest Hot Chocolate, Gingerbread Latte and Hazelnut Praline Latte by popular demand.

Oh and food wise, we're looking at a Terry's Chocolate Orange MUFFIN - take me now. Salted Caramel Yule Log, a chocolate sponge with buttercream and a Clementine & Mascarpone Loaf Cake.

And finally - savoury bits. A Turkey & Trimmings Toastie as well as a Bacon & Cranberry Panini to feed you with some festival fuel will join the menu this season.

To Costa we go.
