Costa Coffee launches limited-edition Heinz Beanz & Cheese Sharer Toastie for Valentine’s Day

This Valentine’s Day, the Nation’s Favourite Coffee Shop, Costa Coffee is looking to bring love safely out of lockdown, with the launch of a special ‘love themed’ toastie box that enables two people living together to share a toastie, at the same time!

From Friday 12th February – Sunday 14th February 2021, anyone ordering the limited-edition Heinz Beanz & Cheese Toastie from participating Costa Coffee stores for deliveryvia Uber Eats will receive it wrapped in a special love-themed toastie ‘sharing’ box’ .

Whether you live with family, friends or a lover, this toastie ‘sharing box’ will enable you to access the toastie from either side at the same time – like the famous pasta scene in Disney’s Lady and the Tramp. Couples will be able to lock eyes over mouthfuls of beans and cheese, or besties can share their love of food together, as this Valentine’s Day Costa Coffee has got you covered.

Little acts of love

Costa Coffee is bringing this little bit of love into people’s homes after conducting research into the state of the nation’s love lives and what people really want for Valentine’s Day.

Small, authentic acts of love are what people are looking for in lockdown. With many balancing work or home-schooling or both, the pandemic is making us appreciate the little things in life more than ever.

Far from needing gondolas in Venice and a champagne tour of the Eiffel Tower, Costa Coffee’s research revealed that nearly half of the nation (46%) think the most authentic way to show someone you love them is simply to bring them a coffee in bed.

Almost a quarter of those surveyed (22%) said that having a bath run for them is the most romantic way of showing affection, while a third (33%) just want the washing up done for them. However, it seems that the younger generation are still looking for more grand gestures of love… with 26% of under 25s setting their sights on a dozen red roses this year. Only 7% of over 55s wanted the same.

You’re the Beanz-Knees

What’s more, one in five surveyed made it clear that right now the nation would prefer the simple comfort of cheese and beans over gourmet food this Valentine’s Day, with nearly half (44%) willing to show their loved one how much they care by sharing their food – now that is love!

Tag-teaming with the iconic brand Heinz, Costa Coffee added the ultimate comfort toastie to its January 2021 menu – combining two warming classics; beans on toast and cheese on toast to give toastie lovers the exclusive Beanz & Cheese Toastie. Packed full of Heinz Beanz and mature cheddar cheese – It’s the must-have toastie, this cold February!

A Costa Coffee spokesperson, said: “While a minority still aspire to Michelin starred dinners, designer aftershave and diamond jewellery for Valentine’s Day, for most of us, a comforting shared meal or hot drink in bed is a more authentic way of showing our other half love. With all of us staying home this February 14th, we hope this limited-edition Heinz Beanz & Cheese Toastie ‘sharing’ box will hopefully bring light-hearted joy and romance to those who are really appreciating the little things in life. It’s the perfect treat to share or have all to yourself.”
