A few Smorgasbord Sundays ago, I blogged about my first Keurig coffee maker. Since then, I’ve used it quite a bit – it’s handy!
While doing my usual grocery shopping, I came across some really interesting coffee and biscotti.
What I found was so different that I felt compelled to blog about it today!
(Note to readers: This post was written by Mary’s stomach…hehe!)
Also, I found a Canadian website that sells tons of K-Cups for the Keurig (as well as pumpkin-pie syrup) that I wasn’t able to find in stores.
I’m really excited to show you this food/beverage ‘haul’…haha!
The first thing I have to show you is the President’s Choice Candy Cane Flavoured Ground Coffee that’s limited-edition.
I tend to browse the coffee aisle at my grocery store just to smell the wonderful aroma. This caught my eye initially because of the red packaging, but then the photo of candy canes intrigued me. I’ve never tried any drink with candy-cane flavouring – yes, I lived a sheltered beverage life. 😛 It was an added bonus that this was on sale for $4.99 CAD!
I’ve already tried it using the My K-Cup and Keurig machine. It’s strong, and I used a lot in the My K-Cup, so the candy canes really tasted intense…a bit too much for me! When I drink more of it later, I’m going to use less grounds and more water.
The next item made me squeal for joy because I’ve never seen it before in stores. Then, while browsing this website for K-Cups, I found the DaVinci Pumpkin Pie Syrup!
I’m a pumpkin-pie fiend, and now I can add some of this to my coffee and turn it into the autumnal flavouring I can’t get enough of!
I often like to eat something sweet with my coffee, and while browsing Loblaws one day, I was surprised to see a new treat in the baked-goods aisle.
Bubbie’s Biscotti Belgian Chocolate S’mores! If that doesn’t sound delicious to you, I don’t know what does!
I loved how each was individually wrapped, so I can take it to work with me and not worry about compromised freshness. Also, these will be perfect for including in Christmas presents. 😉
To top it all off, I was pleased to see that not only does this product not contain any peanuts, but no nuts in general. This is very important to me, as I’m allergic to some nuts. This allergy limits my options of baked goods, unfortunately. But this, I can chow down on without worrying about getting hives. YIPPEE!
As if that wasn’t enough, this company makes other flavours, too. (I plan to try them all eventually.)
The other one I picked up at the same time was Bubbie’s Biscotti Gingerbread White Belgian Chocolate!
I gobbled up most of this already, so it’s safe to say that the crumbs on my shirt give it two thumbs up! 😉
Another great thing about the biscotti is that they didn’t seem hard like a lot of biscotti I’ve eaten before. These are crunchy, but not so hard that you have to really work to bite off a piece.
And…here’s one of the K-Cups I purchased from the website I mentioned before. It’s one of my favourites: Coffee People Donut Shop! I’m sure that you’ve heard of it because it’s wildly popular.
I was able to find the Green Mountain Coffee Pumpkin Spice K-Cups, which are limited-edition! These are absolutely delicious!
Excuse me, but my pumpkin love is realllly showing in this post. 😉
I also got the San Francisco Bay Pumpkin Spice K-Cups because I never heard much about them, and I was wondering how they’d compared to the ones above.
Since I used to love the Starbucks Breakfast Blend from the actual store years ago, I decided to put the K-Cup version in my cart, too.
And…since a lot of people were raving about using the Keurig to make hot chocolate, I decided to try the Grove Square Hot Chocolate. I need to buy some mini marshmallows before I make a cup of this! 🙂
With all those K-Cups, I’m set for several months and won’t be buying anything else for the machine until I’m nearly finished everything. 🙂
Hope that you all are having a wonderful Sunday!
Have you tried any of these K-Cups? Do you enjoy biscotti? Do you use syrups to customize your coffee often?
