Yep, the high street coffee shop is granting our Christmas wishes with a dreamy drinks menu flavoured with After Eight, Terry's Chocolate Orange and Quality Street's Purple One.
Suddenly we're feeling rather festive...
From next Tuesday (3rd November) everyone's fave Quality Street Purple One will be used to infuse a latte at Costa, while Terry's Chocolate Orange and After Eight hot chocs will be available.
Each drink will start at £3.10, depending what size you go for.
The Quality Street Purple One Latte is a festive twist on Costa Coffee's classic handcrafted Latte, made with a rich caramel chocolate sauce and roasted hazelnut syrup and topped with a light dairy swirl and a more-ish caramel chocolate sauce.
The best part is that each Latte comes with a 'Purple One' chocolate - which is quite a treat seeing as its usually one of the most coveted in the tin.
If mint chocolate is more your thing, the After Eight Hot Chocolate promises to be truly delicious.
Made with Costa Coffee's Signature Hot Chocolate, flavoured with a splash of cool peppermint syrup and finished with a light creamy topping, alongside a dusting of chocolate powder, this minty drink is truly Christmas in a cup.
Just like the 'Purple One' latte, the drink comes with an After Eight chocolate thin.
The third offering is the Terry's Chocolate Orange Hot Chocolate, which drops exclusively in Costa Express machines just one year after the launch of Costa's Terry's Chocolate Orange Muffin.
Described as "a perfect blend of Costa Coffee's Signature Hot Chocolate, flavoured with a specially created orange syrup [and] finished with a light dairy swirl and a festive glittery sprinkle," the drink also comes with a Terry's Chocolate Orange segment just as an extra added treat.
Also exclusive to Costa Express machines nationwide, you'll also find a Quality Street Purple One Hot Chocolate, too.
This is basically the "decadent and indulgently chocolatey" hot chocolate you love, topped with a rich caramel chocolate 'Purple One' sauce.
Oh, Costa, you do spoil us.
Of course, some of Costa's Christmas classics are also back for the holiday season.
The Irish Velvet Frostino is returning - sweet with a caramel and vanilla syrup and flavoured with an optional delicious non-alcoholic Irish Coffee flavour. Plus, it's topped with a Belgian Chocolate sauce and a swirl of lightly whipped cream and crunchy caramel pieces.
The Black Forest Chocolate Frostino is also back on the menu, combining the flavours of sweet cherry and velvety chocolate into a "cool, creamy" beverage, which is topped with a light dairy swirl, shimmering red chocolate curls and cherry sauce drizzle.
Finally, Costa is welcoming back the warming Hot Spiced Apple, served with a slice of lemon on the side.
Discussing the new drinks, a Costa Coffee spokesperson said: "We are incredibly excited to bring together the festive icons that are Quality Street, After Eight and Terry's Chocolate Orange for our limited-edition drinks range to truly capture the taste of Christmas in a cup.
"This year, more than ever, we wanted to ensure we make Christmas feel that little bit more magical, every sip of the way, so we're exceptionally pleased to offer returning and new Costa Coffee lovers these soon-to-be iconic additions, plus their classic favourites too. Now to the tough decision of choosing which to try first!"
