Thursday 31 August 2017: As the days grow shorter and autumn approaches, Costa, the nation’s favourite coffee shop is today announcing the launch of an exciting new food menu – including a selection of hot offerings.
Landing in stores from Thursday 7 September, the new menu offers customers more choice than ever before with hearty meal boxes, delicious and filling wraps and lighter options including warming soups. The sweet range has also extended its offerings to include a sumptuous selection of cakes, tarts and muffins.
MEAL BOXES AND WRAPS – from £3.75 each
Customers looking for a substantial lunch can select from one of Costa’s new delicious hot pasta meal boxes. The Italian Style Meatball Pasta is a meat lover’s dream, while the vegetarian Creamy Mac and Cheese is topped with a delectable parsley crumb finish. Brits who prefer a more traditional lunch can delve into one of Costa’s heavenly new wraps. The Hoisin Duck Wrap and the gluten free Chicken Caesar Wrap both contain British meat.
SOUPS – £2.99 each
Soup fans will rejoice as Costa introduces two delicious flavours to its menu for the first time across the UK. The British Pea & Wiltshire Ham Soup is perfect for a tasty warmer, while the Slow Roasted Tomato & Basil Soup, a vegan option, contains two of your five a day.
SWEET TREATS – from £1.20 each
It’s not all about the savoury options though, and Costa certainly hasn’t forgotten customers with a sweet tooth. Cakesplosion! has layers of sticky toffee cake baked with hidden chocolate brownie bites, topped and layered with dulche de leche flavoured frosting and oozy caramel drizzle. It doesn’t stop there though, as it is finished with chocolate brownie crumb, salted caramel crispies and crowned with yet more chocolate brownie bites.
The Spooky Choc O Crunch, a frighteningly festive ring of crispy rice bound in caramel and topped with edible iced bats, while the new Bramley Apple & Blackberry Crumble Tart, served either cold or warm with clotted cream, is a classic dessert option.
Matthew Williams, commercial marketing director at Costa said: “We’re delighted to introduce an extended food menu to our stores from this September. We’re committed to providing our customers with the best experience when they visit our stores, and based on their feedback, we’ve been working with our innovations teams to develop products which we know they’ll enjoy. These additions give customers even more choice and are the perfect update to our ever-evolving menu of innovative food and drink options to complement our great tasting coffee.”
