Fans of the country's biggest fast food chain can look forward to a whole new range of festive drinks and treats.
The McCafe range has already launched its Christmas menu, which includes two new hot beverages, available in four brand new limited-edition paper cups.
From November 3, customers can enjoy the brand new Choco-Fudge Latte, which consists of an espresso blended with steamed milk and a chocolate fudge flavour syrup, topped off with a swirl of cream and a chocolate fudge flavour drizzle.
Coffee fans don't need to stress either as the chain has upgraded one of their fan favourites.
Their new Hot Chocolate Deluxe is described as a silky treat made with a rich, chocolate syrup, topped with a swirl of cream and a chocolatey dusting.
These are accompanied by a range of sweet treats such as a dark fruits muffin, and McDonald's will announce its main menu's new additions later this week.
Coffee shop chain Starbucks has nailed its festive menu offering yet again for 2021.
The brand has already launched its gigantic new food and drink range for the holiday season, which includes the likes of a Caramel Waffle Latte and a Fudge Brownie Hot Chocolate.
Starbucks launched the Christmas menu on November 4, with the limited-edition menu items now available in stores until the New Year.
Their food range features two brand new plant-based sandwiches and even a blue cheese-based toastie.
Customers will see plenty of returning favourites such as the ‘Tis the Season Turkey Sandwich and Festive Feast Panini, but will also have the option of trying some new toasted treats, such as the Chocolate & Orange S’mores Toastie.
From November 5, Caffe Nero fans can sink their teeth into what they've called the "ultimate festive panini".
The coffee house chain has spend months developing their brand new plant-based sandwich and even teamed up with plant-based company THIS™ for the launch.
Their Vegan Festive Feast Panini is now available across all 600+ of their sites and costs £4.60.
The collaboration "promises to be a cut above the rest", with the chain using a succulent plant-based turkey, juicy cranberry and port sauce and fresh spinach leaves to create the delicious-sounding menu item.
Costa Coffee's new festive additions have us salivating just at the thought of them, as they welcome a whopping nine brand new food items to their savoury menu alone.
This includes a gorgeous sounding mac and cheese sandwich and a pigs in blankets panini.
The full menu launched on November 3 and also includes their fan favourite hot drinks.
Costa Coffee's famous After Eight Hot Chocolate and Terry's Chocolate Orange Hot Chocolate will both be returning, and the Quality Street collaboration returns with The Purple One Latte now available in-store, as well as the brand new Quality Street Toffee Penny Latte.
The chain is yet to confirm its full festive lineup for 2021, but we do know that their infamous Festive Bake is returning once again.
This year, vegan customers will be delighted to hear that the bakery is introducing a brand new plant-based version of the menu favourite.
Though initially set to launch at the start of November, the festive duo will now be available in stores from November 22.
Taking to Instagram to announce the unfortunate delay, Greggs posted a video which shows the two festive bakes in an animation.
The chain has called its new launch "the Festive Bake remix".
The social media video ended with the animated pastries on a stage in front of a red backdrop, and featured a title reading: "Now launching 22.11.21 – It'll be worth the bake"
Greggs captioned the Instagram post: "It's the Festive Bake remix! A little later than expected, but in true 2021 style. Now launching 22nd November."
