CAFFÃ Nero has unveiled its Christmas menu and there are eight new items to choose from.
The new range features a turkey feast focaccia, chocolate hazelnut chouxnut and cinnamon swirl latte.
Some fan favourites are also making a return, including the classic mince pie and brie, bacon and cranberry panini.
The new items are all available from today until December 26 – customers can pick them up from any of Caffe Nero’s 650 UK stores.
Coffee fans can order online via Just Eat and Uber Eats as well.
Meanwhile, CaffÃ¨ Nero is running a Christmas app promotion with a number of prizes on offer including tickets to a Chelsea football match and Disney homeware bundles.
The offer will be available between November 3 and December 26.
You can download the app onto Android or iPhones.
What are the new items?
CaffÃ¨ Nero is introducing eight new items to the menu, including three new drinks.
First up there’s the luxury black forest mocha, which costs Â£4.25 and comes with 384 calories.
The beverage includes a cherry-infused liquid chocolate, blended with espresso and topped with cream.
Then there’s the cinnamon swirl latte on sale from Â£4.25 and made up of oat milk, cinnamon and caramel and topped with cream and a cinnamon dusting. It comes in at 363 calories.
Third, there’s the salted caramel brownie hot chocolate on sale from Â£4.25 which has 441 calories.
The drink comes with salted caramel and is topped with cream and brownie pieces.
The new savoury food items include a turkey feast focaccia, which is topped with smoked bacon and cranberry sauce and costs Â£5.25. It’s 512 calories.
Then there’s a new and improved vegan festive feast featuring a fennel and sage stuffing and finished with vegan gravy mayo.
This costs from Â£4.85 and comes with 497 calories.
For those with a sweet tooth, there are two new treats on offer.
The first is the luxury black forest cake which consists of layers of moist chocolate sponge Morello cherry compote and white chocolate frosting and costs from Â£3.50.
Plus, there’s the chocolate hazelnut chouxnut, a doughnut-shaped choux pastry filled with smooth chocolate and hazelnut mouse and topped with a Belgian chocolate ganache fondant and hazelnuts that costs from Â£3.85.
It’s only 270 calories as well.
For the mince pie lovers, there’s a spin on the classic Christmas treat as well.
The luxury amaretto mince pie, which comes with amaretto-soaked filling, caramelised almond Florentine topping all inside all-butter pastry, is selling for Â£2.55 and is 386 calories.
What’s making a comeback?
The pigs under blankets tostati, at 520 calories, is coming back and it’s on sale from Â£4.50.
It features pork sausages with cured bacon, cranberry sauce and mozzarella and cheddar bechamel.
Plus, the brie, bacon and cranberry panini is on sale from Â£4.85 and coming in at 509 calories.
The savoury snack comes with sweet and smoky beechwood bacon, creamy French brie and a chunky cranberry sauce.
It’s filled with the usual mincemeat and topped with a pastry star and dusted in icing. The good news is it’s suitable for vegans too.
We’ve asked Nero how much the returning items costed last year to compare and will update this story when we know more.
It comes after Starbucks unveiled six new winter menu items last month, including a praline cookie hot chocolate and new toffee nut cream cold brew.
Pricing for the former started at Â£3.90 and Â£3.65 for the latter in the tall sizes – so that’s a minimum of 35p cheaper than Nero’s new festive drinks.
Plus, Costa’s Christmas menu is hitting stores today.
Our reporter Lucy Alderson tried the new range and one of the items came out a clear winner.
There’s a Toblerone latte in the new range and prices start from Â£3.90, 35p cheaper than Nero.
Plus, its brie and cranberry toastie costs Â£3.45 – so that’s Â£1.40 cheaper than Nero’s brie, bacon and cranberry panini.
