is Dunkin' Donuts in your cup! Okay, so Folgers would probably not be happy with that little ad lib but I just had to tell y'all about my new favorite cup o' joe! First of all, I have become a coffee addict of sorts. It's not that I have coffee all day; in fact the opposite is true. I wake up, get ready for work and when I get there the first thing I do is start a pot of coffee in our "lounge." I put quotes around that because it isn't actually the teacher's lounge. It is an office in the science lab that I and a few of my cohorts have turned into a mini-kitchen; we have a fridge, microwave, coffee pot, and snacks galore! It is heaven!
While we were in College Station in the Fall visiting friends, we were introduced to Dunkin' Donuts coffee. Wow! It is fantastic! I don't really know what it is that makes it so delectable, but I literally crave it while I'm driving to work and I am not a happy camper on days I don't have time for a cup; oh, who am I kidding, those days don't exist because I would scour the earth (or at least the main building at school), before I went without one!Every morning I enjoy a cup of coffee plus two Altern packets (Splenda for you high rollers) and about 1/8 c. of fat free half and half. Yep, I like me a morning milkshake, people!
Now, those of you thinking, "Wow, a Dunkin' Donuts in Childress, Texas?" just whoa that horsie up. No such, not ever, only in my dreams. However, the geniuses at DD have decided to market their "stuff" to local grocers, so visit your nearest Super Wal-Mart, HEB, Albertsons, etc...and you too can be starting your day off right!
Another recommendation for coffee is Folgers Cinnamon Swirl! We've been sippin' on this for the last week or so and it is a very close second to my love of DD. Oh, and I forgot to mention my suggestions on flavors from DD are Original Roast and Hazlenut. Both a sure bet.Saturday night was our Sunday school Christmas party. We always bring one nice gift and one gag. So, I thought the best gift would be to wrap up...or sack up, in my case...a bag of Dunkin' Donuts coffee and a nice travel mug. I even added a package of gourmet hot chocolate in case the crazy who picked my bag didnt' like coffee. Well, the person (ahem, man) who picked my bag opened it and announced to the whole room, "Coffee? I don't even drink coffee," (did he NOT see the hot chocolate, hello?). Anyway, his wife quickly said, "Yeah, but I do," and grabbed it from him. Whew. Glad someone has some common sense in that family! Please know this is all in jest because we love that family and love to give the hubby a hard time. He was just being himself and we all just laughed at him like we always do.
So, I hope you all have a chance to build a fire, curl up on the couch with a good book (or the remote, whatever floats your proverbial boat) and sip some hot Dunkin' Donuts joe!
I'd love to hear your favorite coffees and give them a try, so leave me a comment and give me some suggestions!
**UPDATE** Friday at work, I happened to pick up one of those peppermint candies that melts in your mouth. You know, the ones that come in big tubs at Sams or Costco? Anyway, I dropped one into my coffee and let it melt. It was DELICIOUS! Try it!
