We have three new drinks launching this September, with the Pumpkin Pie Latte/Cappuccino, the Pumpkin Spiced Chai and the Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate. But what exactly are these drinks I hear you cry? Well, consider your curiosity answered.

At Insomnia we are quite proud of our hot chocolate, made with real melted milk chocolate and steamed milk, its one of our most popular hot beverages, and this autumn season see's the introduction of our new Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate, which is a little treat for all the peanut butter nutters out there....we think you'll definately enjoy this one!
