If you love coffee and have a wicked sweet tooth, then we may have found the drink you need in your life this summer.

Costa has brought back its popular Whipped Latte range and as well as the existing choco and caramel options, there’s a brand new addition for 2024 — a white chocolate flavour.

Available in small and medium sizes, the £4.50 drink features a layer of whipped coffee, combined with either dairy milk or a plant-based alternative, with white chocolate sauce on the bottom. All of this is then served over ice for a refreshing treat.

The frothy beverage has become a hit with Costa customers, as those who’ve tried it have been comparing the taste to several popular chocolate bars.

In a recent TikTok video, a user named @costaballymena shared a look at how the drink was made, claiming it ‘tastes like a Milkybar.’

Several of her followers quickly proclaimed the drink ‘looks epic’, with Lisa Harrison commenting: ‘These are amazing, like literally chef’s kiss.’

While Georgie Proctor shared that if you add a pump of hazelnut syrup to the drink then it becomes like a ‘Kinder Bueno’.

The drink has even managed to convert iced coffee haters, with @vermontious on X (formerly Twitter) writing: ‘Costa’s White Chocolate Iced Whipped Latte… Lemme start this by saying I don’t like iced coffee. This coffee was gorgeous. Can’t believe I’m saying this. 10/10.’

Over on Instagram, @sophiecharlotte_xx posted: ‘I’ve had the white chocolate one twice in two days. I can’t bring myself to try the others incase they aren’t as good.’

And @nanag_54 added: ‘The white chocolate one is banging!’

Sandra Ferreira, Beverage Innovation Director at Costa Coffee, said: ‘We’ve listened to our fans and heard their demands which is why we’re excited to welcome back our Iced Whipped Latte range, with the introduction of the new White Chocolate flavour. 

‘We’re confident that our fans will fall back in love with the range all over again. Our customers have eagerly awaited the return of this iconic drinks range, and we’re delighted to bring them back in time for the warmer months.’
