We popped into Costa as we had a lengthy, cold wait for a bus, en route from the pub, en route to the pub.
The drink that beckoned to us was their festive black forest gateau hot chocolate, a festive treat. It was £3.80 for a regular but we of course opted for large. We warmed up and excitedly awaited our hitherto never tried drinks.
There was a generous allotment of cream, embellished with chocolate twirls.
But the drink itself. Yuck. There was a definitive cherry flavour but it was like drinking chemical poison. We managed to finish, but it was a struggle and it was probably only because we’d had a few kronies, our sober selves wouldn’t of managed it.
