Introducing our 2016 exclusive Christmas hot cups

Thursday September 22, 2016

With autumn taking hold and cooler weather on the way, it’s time for operators to begin the launch of their winter menus and be ready for the big freeze. An important part of any cosy winter menu is the hot drink options, especially coffee, tea and hot chocolate. But with consumers becoming more adventurous with their food and drink choices, traditional drinks are often cast aside in favour of modern twists.

To stand out from the crowd, operators can take advantage of changing seasonal tastes by offering an exciting range of limited-edition speciality drinks. Spices, syrups and indulgent garnishes can easily be added to your existing drinks for reasonably low cost, but can make a large impact to sales.



Here are some ideas for wonderful winter warmers:

Comforting Gingerbread latte

Luxurious hot chocolate

Trendy turmeric latteherbal-tea-1410565_1920

Simple Chai tea

Soothing herbal tea


Once you’ve decided on your winter beverages, it’s time pick your hot cups. To truly stand out from the crowd and embrace the festive feeling, our range of exclusive themed hot cups will bring a smile to your customers face this Christmas season.

Due to their extreme popularity in 2015, when each design sold out in the run up to Christmas, we have created a new range of Bunzl exclusive Christmas hot cup designs this year.

The 2016 cups are available in four unique designs including two smooth single wall and two rippled double wall styles. BCS Christmas Design Hot Cups PDF
