Costa coffee mint hot chocolate review

The Christmas drinks are out at Costa and I couldn’t resist trying one. As I am not a fan of coffee, I decided that I would try the mint hot chocolate. Today I will give you my verdict of whether I think it’s a drink you should try .

 My first impressions were that this is very chocolatey drink. It definitely doesn’t taste like powdered hot chocolate so you’re going to love it. Indeed, it has a nice, slightly frothy texture to it, but the mint flavour doesn’t overpower the chocolate taste. Indeed , there’s a perfect balance of mint and chocolate , which ensure that it’s not sickly at all.
Also, I enjoyed the Christmas-y touch of a mini mint candy cane that I was given with my drink. I thought it was really cute.
To conclude, it is one of the nicest hot chocolates I’ve had from a coffee shop. It gave me a Christmas vibe and I definitely left costa with a smile on my face. 
Overall rating:4/5
