Whilst on our Dorset/Hampshire Sun £9.50 holiday we were very excited to see that the special festive beverages are now available in the popular coffee establishments.
Though very tempted by the Praline and Cream Latte ……. and sharing the love ……..
….. we asked the young man behind the counter in Costa if they had stopped doing the Egg Nog Latte, our very favourite Christmas hot beverage of choice. He ran through the list of festive coffees right off the top of his head, which was very impressive ….. but alak and a day, there was no egg nog on the said list.
We finally settled for a plain cappuccino between us …. and as we settled into the faux leatherette sofa in the corner the penny finally dropped ….. we were in Costa and it’s Starbucks that do the egg nog latte …… aghhhhhhh! We were so embarrassed when we realised our terrible pas of a faux type nature that when we had finished we skulked out, with heads held low, not daring to look the polite young man who served us in the eye, what an unforgiveable mistake to make!
