Well, be glad this is TowersStreet and not Mumsnet.
Back on topic
I wonder what happened to the firework enterprise?
It was hired so I would imagine it is back with the company that own it.
The TS Twitter has confirmed that Cadbury chocolate is now back on sale across the resort replacing Nestle
Nice. Oh, i do like a whispa
Wake me up when they start selling decent chocolate.
yeah back to decent hot chocolate instead of the insipid brown water they were selling
They had Aero a few seasons ago that was very good, nice and thick for instant stuff. But then they seem to switch to something cheaper and more generic.
The only time I had hot chocolate at Towers was about 3 seasons ago when hot drinks were free to MAP holders. It was good from what I can remember, but I think it was because I got it for free.
Like the coffee. I was looking forward to ADD to get my caffeine hit but it was just awful, watery yuck. Those powder mix machines should be binned.
It looks like Pringles have replaced Walkers as the crisp suppliers as well. Not so sure on that one myself.
They really need to look into doing something with the coffee though. I like a coffee but rarely have one at Towers because of how bad it is. BPB brew Starbucks coffee in their outlets, something like this at Towers would be a vast improvement.
To be fair, you can at least reseal a Pringles tube, not spilling crisps all over your bag! Costa or Café Nero please.
Costa at Towers would be decent, IMO - it'd fit quite nicely into Corner Coffee.
Instead of costa at £5 a cup it would be £7.50 a small cup.
Starbucks all the way Im afraid
Would dread to think of the prices tho for branded coffee...! Urggg
£5 a cup?! Medium Black is £2.20 But yeah, it would most likely be £3+ for the same thing. No no, anything but Starbucks. Also no 'fancy coffee' is allowed
Starbucks please! But I feel it will definitely be Costa they have or a potentially less commercialised brand like Caffe Nero or Pret A Manger, proper Starbucks coffee shops seem too prestigious given the state that the rest of Alton Towers is in!
I'd pay a bit more for a decent coffee.
Even Costa Express machines would be an improvement!
Starbucks prestigious? Maybe in the 90s. I thought it was more like the McDonald's of coffee shops. Every Starbucks I've been to in the UK looks run down with peeling paint, dated decorations and uncomfortable "canteen" style furniture ... Filled with tourists and loud foreign students not to mention the dirty tables and rubbish all over the floor.
The ones I've seen State side look a bit nicer I guess.
I would hope for something else like a Costa or Nero as they are normally furnished much better and with comfortable seating at the least. Other than that I'm not an expert on the exact differences between them as I'm not a huge fan of coffee shops generally. All I know is that Starbucks always seems to be too busy, uncomfortable and dirty.
It will fit right in with corner coffee then...
