However, you can still collect the tokens from the physical cups which will gain you an extra hot drink. This will save you between £1.78 and £3.56 which is a great offer!

This is available for all hot drinks on the McCafe menu at a regular size. Clever customers have been taking advantage of this deal and are saving money on their coffees everyday.

In addition to this, McDonald’s have also released vegan products such as the veggie dippers which are a permanent addition to the menu. This is a real benefit to the company as these are very popular amongst healthy eaters and specific diets.

Costa has rewarded us with a new addition to the January 2020 menu. A ruby hot chocolate that is perfect for Instagram has been launched and customers are loving it.

Costa Pink Hot Chocolate

The drink is made from ruby cocoa beans, which are the ingredient that make it naturally bright pink in colour. It also has a fruity taste, which just adds to the uniqueness of the hot chocolate.

In addition to this beautiful drink that is priced at £3.35, Costa have also added three more hot beverages to their menu all Coconut flavoured;

  • Latte – £2.55
  • Flat White – £2.70
  • Hot Chocolate – £3.35

Although these drinks are also popular, customers seem to have taken to the pink drink the most. This is likely due to it being so aesthetically pleasing to share online to social media – giving Costa more publicity.

We think this hot chocolate is a dream for posting online and can’t wait to see more of it!

Do you know why Bourbon Biscuits have holes in them?

Have you ever thought to yourself, why do Bourbon biscuits have holes in them? Also, why don’t all biscuits have this?

Bourbon Biscuit

Mark Greenwell, on Channel 4’s Food Unwrapped has revealed there is a valid reason why Bourbon biscuits have holes in them. He states that these small holes in the biscuits are needed to allow for steam to escape. If it wasn’t for the holes – the biscuits would be likely to break. In order to achieve an even texture, the biscuit should have as little steam in it as possible.

This would explain why biscuits such as Ginger Nuts have no holes in them as they are intended to snap.

When producing Ginger Nut biscuits, the steam is kept inside the biscuit which enables it to snap perfectly. The trapped heat caramelises the sugar in the biscuit which creates a similar texture a boiled sweet.

This can explain how Ginger Nut achieve their iconic snap unlike Bourbon biscuits which are made to dunk without snapping them!

New York’s Bandit opens a ‘mobile-only’ coffee shop

There is a new way to purchase your morning coffee in New York at The Bandit Coffee shop. This is a cafe where customers will not be served by an employee, instead they will download an app and place their order on their phone.

New York mobile-only coffee shop

The main idea of Bandits’ coffee shop is to make it the most convenient experience for their customers. People can order via their app, be notified when it will be ready and where to pick it up. This can take the stress out of rapidly trying to place an order at the till. These busy customers are now able to purchase with more ease.

This concept can be hard to grasp by people who are passing by the shop and don’t completely understand it. However, Bandit have multiple employees on the floor who are happy to assist anyone who may be confused.

Another benefit to this unique coffee shop is that the prices are kept lower than usual. Instead of the drinks being as high as $7 or $8 in competitor businesses such as Starbucks – many of Bandits drinks can be around $2.

Bandit are also experimenting with a $20 subscription deal that allows the customer to get an unlimited amount of $1 drinks for a month.

This new shop is bound to be a success, Bandit is extremely likely to fulfill many New Yorkers’ coffee needs!

How long will the UK customers have to wait until this genius mobile-only coffee shop idea is launched over here?
