You may already know the answer to the enduring question of whether you love anyone enough to give them your last Rolo, but now you’re going to have to make that decision with the new Costa Rolo muffin, too.
As part of its spring collection, the coffee chain has revealed a treat that will tempt anyone with even the slightest sweet tooth: a decadent chocolate muffin with sticky caramel core, a generous dollop of caramel icing and a scattering of mini Rolos studded on the top.
Priced at £2.25, the Chocolate & Caramel muffin made with Rolo (to give it its official title) is available in stores from today, and we predict a beeline of eager chocoholics rushing to stores to be the first to give it a try. It’s a limited edition bake, so be sure to grab a taste before stocks run out.
However, the Costa Rolo muffin isn’t the only twist on a classic featured on the new season menu: it’s joined by a salted caramel muffin and the fan-favourite Terry’s Chocolate Orange muffin, both of which are back for another year. There’s also a new salted caramel brownie, a Belgian bun, and a raspberry and coconut bar to get stuck into over the next few months.
To wash them down, you also might want to consider the store’s trio of hot chocolates, that go beyond the usual milk or dark and expands to white and ruby chocolate.
Costa’s ruby chocolate hot chocolate is the newest addition to the line-up, and has already proved popular thanks to its bright pink and highly Instagrammable hue. But it’s not all for show – it tastes as good as it looks, with the same lighter berry notes you’d get from a square of the pink chocolate bar.
However, Costa’s signature sell is of course, coffee, and its upped its game in these stakes for spring as well. The ‘Flat Black’ – a more intense alternative to your usual flat white – is back, and is said to ‘bring out the sweet kernel of the coffee bean to make that morning brew extra special.’
With Alpro Oat Milk being added to the non-dairy milk offerings in-store this week too, there’s never been more choice at your local branch. In fact, the only downside is having to decide which combination to order first.
