Dunkin' Donuts Holiday Coffees.... Mmmmm's all around...

A few weeks ago Mom Central asked if I wanted to try Dunkin' Donuts Holiday Coffees....

...and I was all in.

I wanted to because well, I never tried Dunkin' Donuts coffee - I don't even know why; it's more economical then some of the coffee I buy.  Wait, scratch that. Make that most of the coffee I buy  and I love flavored coffee; it's all I drink.  Plus Dunkin' Donuts Coffee is available at grocery stores locally and there are at least two Dunkin' Donuts within three miles of my house - Don't even ask how I know that - so I can find it easily.

I just got back from a long weekend in Cape May and  I never go anywhere without a coffee pot - and that's  for real.  Here's a shot of the kitchenette all set up as the coffee bar.

I brought my Dunkin' Donuts coffee.

And played barista.


All of us (we went with another couple) have major coffee love going on and tried all the flavors.   I got an assortment of creamers (some plain, some flavored) because while I have an insatiable love of flavored coffee creamers some of the people saddling up to the kitchenette didn't want their Vanilla Nut Coffee with  another added flavor...  

The consensus was, Mmmmm....   The flavored and non-flavored coffee drinkers all enjoyed their morning brew and I think I know why - The primary essence is coffee... with a twist.

As someone who drinks and loves flavored coffees, enjoying a delish Mocha Mint Coffee can be a wonderful thing if done well - Done badly mint coffee is like sitting in front of a steaming cup of toothpaste -    Flavored coffees are great but there is a delicate balance and more isn't always better.  

The Dunkin' Donuts Coffees all had a nice balance with the flavor playing off the coffee but not overpowering it.  If you want to try these, what are you waiting for?  They are seasonal and won't be around for too, too long.

Dunkin' Donuts and I are currently not speaking. When we were in Massachussetts, we saw billboards for hot apple cider at DD. When we got back to NJ, no such thing available. Hot cider and a donut. Mmmm... Not in NJ, apparently. (And yes, I realize I could prepare this myself, but I don't wanna!)

Amy, I hear you - I love cider.... There are a few you can make with a tea bag, don't know if you knew that... just throwing that out there.

Lynette - wow - that far from a dunkin' donut? OMG I just thought of a third place - there are three within about three miles of me!

I have NEVER been a coffee drinker but we have a pot and bought some coffee, need filters now though, since giving up soda I've been wanting to see if coffee is a good replacement.
