I don't usually hawk products or endorse brands from this humble little blog..but holy smokes, I just can't keep this one to myself.


I was whizzin' through the coffee aisle of my local little grocery store one morning picking up other items and I impulsively bought this little bag of coffee; 'twasn't even on my list!

Now mind, I have a big honkin' container of Maxwell House in the freezer, but I bought this anyway, I couldn't explain why. I felt foolish, I mean the bag IS cute. But I didn't need it. Must have been fate, because one cuppa this and I was HOOKED.

It's a mellow coffee, just right for me. I'm totally NOT into the flavor-infused, gussied up 40-weight type stuff they serve at Starbucks...McDonald's coffee is more my speed. Up until I bought this Dunkin' Donuts brand coffee, my favorite cuppa was from McDonalds, yes it was (embarrassingly!) way better than I could make at home.

Not anymore!

It's mild, but full flavored, accepts my (plain Jane unflavored) Coffee-mate (half 'n half) creamer very well and with a spoonful or two of sugar, it's HEAVEN!

The best part? NO AFTERTASTE!

Aftertaste, in my opinion, can ruin a cup of coffee. Yuck!

So...if you're feeling impulsive, grab a little bag o' this good stuff, see if you like it.

Next time I buy it, I will get the big giant bag I saw the other day in Sam's Club. It will last me a year!

I only drink a cuppa or two in the mornin' and I take my coffee with three creams and two sugars, how 'bout you?

HOW do you like YOUR coffee?
With cream?

How about your toast?

Homemade white toast & homemade strawberry jam okay?

I keep hearing how good this coffee is. I don't like Starbucks either, too strong and bitter. I like my coffee medium to mild, not too acid. As for toast, is there anything better than home made sliced thin, toasted a light golden brown and slathered with real butter?

I have heard alot about this coffee too, but haven't tried it yet. We like a dark roast in the a.m. to get us going. I have to have mine with half and half sugar. An occasional SF Nutty Buddy from Bigby hits the spot on occasion I must admit. And for the toast I have to say real butter is always best with a bit of strawberry jam! Cute post!

OK Well,now I will have to splurge the $7.00 and try this stuff! I keep looking and putting it back being the cheapo err thrifty shopper I am. But after the commercial where the woman is drug across lawns and store aisles and magnetized to the bag and now my blog hero gives a ringing endorsement... I gotta have me some Dunkin' coffee! If I had your homemade jam..I'd slather it on a rock if that is all that was around! I like mine crunchy on the edges then gooey with butter and jam in the middle. Been trying to do the whole grain with natural peanut butter thing...sigh ...not as good as homemade jam! Cute post! WOW you like a little coffee with your cream and sugar like me HAHA!!

I like my coffee with Fox and Friends, LOL. We're hooked on Millstone's peppermint coffee, which is only available during Christmas time. We always stock up and store it all in the freezer after a good vacuum sealing! We've probably got 20 pounds out in the freezer right now!

OMG! We are hooked on Dunkin coffee!
1/2 & 1/2 and a little sugar.
Has to be 1/2 & 1/2. NO milk or flavored creamers!

For this New Englander there pretty much is no coffee other than Dunk's! Within 5 miles of where I live there are no fewer than 10 DD shops. For Christmas every year my stocking is stuffed to the cuff with bags of it. Buying it at the shop by the cup can get a bit pricey---no worse than S/B's,--- but I usually brew it at home, and I am a happy girl. I have noticed in the stores they sell the coffee in 12 oz. bags. At the shops you get a full pound even cheaper at least here in my area. Make mine Milk Only please, and I love toast ALL kinds and ways!

Have a great weekend!

I have to admit but this PNW'er does not like coffee at all - However, your strawberry jam and toast photo is making me go out of my mind right now because it looks so YUMMY!!! How about a trade? Some spring weather & flowers for a bit of jam? of course you'll have to arrange the weather thing with God you know :)
TY for visiting my cyber home!
