Costa Black Forest Hot Chocolate Review
It's taken me a while but finally I've gotten around to trying Costa's legendary Black Forest Hot Chocolate - turns out I saved the best until last! It's described by Costa as: "Costa Hot Chocolate with an added shot of Blackberry syrup and topped with cream, cherry sauce and a sprinkle of Belgian chocolate curls."
When mine arrived it had a huge pile of cream and plenty of cherry sauce on top, in fact it was dribbling down the glass there was so much of it! There were plenty of chocolate curls too making the whole thing look extremely luxurious...I couldn't wait to get stuck in!
It tasted as fantastic as it looked. The cherry sauce was sweet yet slightly tart and zingy, and made the cream taste even more luxurious. The chocolate curls added a nice crunch. When I got to the hot chocolate I started to think "Okay the best part is over now...", but I was wrong! The hot chocolate tasted just as brilliant; the blackberry syrup went with it perfectly and provided an authentic black forest flavour.
Overall, I reckon Costa have perfected Black Forest Gateaux in hot chocolate form with this drink, and as you can see from the empty glass it was deemed a huge success by Kev's Snack Reviews! :)
If you haven't tried one of these yet then you simply have to ASAP; it's by far the best drink on Costa's Christmas Menu and I hope they stick around for the rest of January!
RATING: 9 out of 10.
