Coffee Confidential – Holiday Flavors {Giveaway}

green mountain coffee to do list

The holidays are awesome, right? Of course they are. But let’s be real – they’re also the time of year where you’re just as likely to pull your hair out as you are to feel the holiday spirit. There is so much to do. Each year I tell myself I’m going to start early. My grandmother starts shopping in the summer time. I want to be that person! Guess how many years I actually pulled it off? Zip. So I go through the same thing each year. I’m in awe of the beautiful winter snow, decorations and general feel-good-ness…..and then oh crap. It’s almost time for Hanukkah and Christmas! And, of course, I haven’t started any of it yet. So I start stocking up – not only on holiday items and gifts, but also on coffee. You guys already know how much coffee I drink; and that’s when I’m NOT stressed. You don’t want to know how much I drink this time of year. Seriously. But, there is a silver lining to everything. This one happens to be Holiday Flavors!

green mountain coffee holiday kcup flavors

This year Green Mountain Coffee is spoiling us rotten with three amazing Limited Edition k-cup flavors:

  • Gingerbread – One of my favorite holiday treats is a big, warm gingerbread man. This k-cup delight captures that same spicy flavor so you can enjoy even if you’re trying to stay away from the cookie jar. (also available in ground bags)
  • Spicy Eggnog – How can you have the holiday season without a little nog? This brew combines the familiar cinnamon and nutmeg you enjoy with a creamy sensation that is so close to the real thing. I love adding whipped cream and a dash of fresh nutmeg. (also available in ground bags)
  • Golden French ToastThis is my absolute favorite flavor this year. I’m drinking one as I type this. Brew up a cup and you’ll have your family wondering if you just whipped up a batch of butterd French Toast with Maple syrup! *This flavor is SO popular that it is SOLD OUT on the Green Mountain Coffee website – for the season! *UPDATE* I just heard from Green Mountain Coffee and Golden French Toast will be available in January! Just in time for you to curl up with a warm cup and celebrate the start of your new year! Stay tuned! 
Add those to my stash of Hot Apple Cider and I’m set for the winter. But, here’s the problem. “Kenda….how can there possibly be a problem with having all those tasty k-cups?!”  Two words: organizing them. Do you know how frustrating it is to know you have one more cider left, but you have to sort through 50 other k-cups to find it? Do that at 5:30 am and see how it goes. But this year is different – I got organized!
