Note: I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Dunkin’ Donuts. I received product samples to facilitate my In-Home party as well as a promotional item to thank me for participating.
Warning: I am very exuberant when it comes to coffee… my one weakness.
Get ready to start drooling! Before last month, I hadn’t tried Dunkin’ Donuts coffee. I didn’t really know much about it, even. Now, however, I have been educated. Did you realize that Dunkin’ Donuts has a whole line of Bakery-themed ground coffee beans? They do, and these bags of delicious-smelling coffee, from flavors such as Glazed Chocolate Donut to Caramel Coffee Cake, are yummy!
I’m a lover of flavored coffee – I even have a collection of baking flavorings such as caramel, almond, and maple ready to add to my coffee should it need a flavor boost. I. Love. Flavored. Coffee. I also love cinnamon rolls, and how fortuitous that the newest Dunkin’ Donuts coffee flavor is Cinnamon Coffee Roll! ;) Brewing this up will make your house smell amazing!
So I had a little party with some girlfriends, kind of a back-to-school/let’s-drink-coffee party. They were excited to try the different coffees and were able to take home as party favors a Dunkin’ Donuts cup and a bag of the Cinnamon Coffee Roll coffee. You know they loved that! We had pumpkin muffins (which I forgot to get a photo of), and tried the four flavors pictured. Some of my friends were photo-shy (we’re kind of a bunch of introverts, haha), but we had a great party! Then one Sunday I took a bag of coffee to my church to share with everyone!
The coffee with a hit with everyone at my party, and one of my friends even told me she liked it black without any sweetener in it. This is quite something to me – I’m not a fan of black coffee. ;-) I normally like a little coffee with my cream and sugar (or flavored creamer, which Dunkin’ Donuts has as well!). But I should note that I don’t feel the need to add as much creamer/sweetener with this coffee since it’s so very flavorful! This makes a good cup of coffee, folks. And of all the flavors in the Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee Bakery Series, Cinnamon Coffee Roll was my favorite! It was rich and flavorful, and was a favorite with the girls at the party, too. :)
Now I MUST share one of the awesome recipes from Hungry Girl: the Sweet & Spicy Chocolate Glazed Donut Iced Coffee. I made this for the party and it was sooo easy to make, I couldn’t believe how good it was! It has mini chocolate chips (melted and blended) and cinnamon and cayenne in it. I wish I could have it (guilt-free) every day, I loved it! Check out the other recipes using Dunkin’ Donuts coffee here.

You can find Dunkin’ Donuts Bakery Series coffee wherever you buy your groceries. Want a good excuse to try some? National Coffee Day is coming up on September 29! Instead of heading to a local coffee shop, why not treat yourself to a new coffee flavor? Also, I know many of you are beginning school like we are – that is a good excuse to get something special for those mornings you need to be very awake for. If your kids are anything like mine, they wake up acting as caffeinated as I wish I was! ;-)
