One of the things that always impresses me about coffee is how they are able to blend so many different flavors into the traditional coffee blend. For someone who drinks coffee almost every morning, being able to enjoy coffees that don’t always taste the same is a treat. Around the holidays, many of our familiar coffee houses are introducing coffee varieties that embrace the holiday season. Sometimes I wish they would offer the holiday flavors year-round, but maybe that’s how they get us to stock up and store our favorites. Dunkin Donuts has recently introduced their line of limited-time-only-get-it-right-now holiday flavors, including Vanilla Nut, Pumpkin Spice, and Mocha Mint.
About Dunkin Donuts Packaged Coffee
WiC Chick KP, of My 3 Little Kittens, helped us to try these three special varieties. The experience was positive from first sniff, with the aroma seal on each packaging giving you a hint of what the blends would taste like. As an added bonus, the bags have an easy close feature to help keep the grounds fresh and flavorful.
If you love dark chocolate and you love mint, this is the blend for you. The aroma just tempts you to drink this coffee. It is a medium strength coffee, with a very strong aroma but a milder flavor. If you love the blend of chocolate and mint, like KP’s husband, this may be the blend for you, but if you want a strong true coffee flavor, check out the Vanilla Nut.
You could smell the vanilla right away in this blend and was KP’s favorite of the three. The flavor is not as strong but you can still taste the vanilla flavor with a “hint of spicy nuttiness.” KP says, “I will be drinking this one for sure in the future.”
I remember the first time I tasted a pumpkin spiced coffee drink. I just didn’t see how it could world – pumpkin and coffee? It’s like taking a bite of pumpkin pie and washing it down with coffee…which, come to think of it, many people actually do around the holidays. The Dunkin Donuts blend probably captures that experience – coffee flavored pumpkin pie with a ton of spice.
If you want to add a little bit of flavorful variety to your morning or afternoon coffee breaks, then check out these seasonal flavors from Dunkin Donuts. Now is your chance to “LOVE IT! (Before it Leaves.)”
