Costa's White Hot Chocolate, Gingerbread Latte and Spiced Apple drinks and now it's now my mission to try the rest of their Christmas Menu before it disappears in January...
The drink is described by Costa as "A true taste of Christmas: our Salted Caramel Latte is made up of Costa Espresso with steamed milk served with salted caramel flavoured syrup, topped with cream and caramel sauce".
When mine arrived it was exactly as advertised (hurrah!), and contained a hefty drizzle of salted caramel sauce above a thick layer of cream. Taking a sip I was met with a strong salted, butterscotch flavour - it was very moreish and tasty - more so than regular caramel in fact - proving that "salted caramel" isn't just a marketing gimmick...it's actually better than regular caramel! The rest of the latte was as expected - very milky and with a hint of caramel flavour, but nothing so strong it distracted from the espresso.
Overall, a lovely drink with a touch of luxury that is worth buying just for the salted caramel and cream. I hope these stick around well into the new year!
RATING: 8 out of 10.
