Costa have a number of new festive-themed food and drink items available for us vegans across the country. Alongside their Sticky Toffee and Pecan Cookie you can now enjoy the Gluten Free Iced Fruit Slice and Mince Tart, as well as tucking in to a bar of 70% Cocoa Dark Chocolate.

Dairy free drinks include:

Black Forest Hot Chocolate – made with soya or coconut milk without the cream & chocolate swirls

Shimmer Coffee – made with soya or coconut milk

Hazelnut Praline Latte –  made with soya or coconut without cream and the crispy toffee crumb

Hazelnut Praline Hot Chocolate – as above

Gingerbread Latte – made with soya or coconut and served without cream and gingerbread man (boooo!)

Gingerbread Hot Chocolate – as above

Orange Latte – made with soya or coconut without cream

Orange Hot Chocolate – as above

The hot chocolate powder used by Costa contains no ingredients of animal origin but carry a cross contamination risk. 

Hopefully by next Christmas we’ll see Costa serving vegan whipped cream on their drinks!

    Our Costa initially said they weren’t vegan due to their sheet only giving information when made with milk or including cream. Having read the bottle I can confirm the orange is and assume the rest are likewise.

    I’d read a comment in a vegan group on FB that Costa have been told to refuse to serve the Christmas drinks with non-dairy milk until further notice, as there is the possibility that the syrups are NSFV. Not sure if anyone else has heard this?
