Spring coffee for sisters… and, well, everyone else too!

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Dunkin’ Donuts. I received a Dunkin’ Donuts Party Kit to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

The sun was setting as I tied orange and pink balloons to the front step railing… In the house, decadent cheesecakes, tres leches cake, and fresh brewed iced coffees from Dunkin’ Donuts awaited my guests. And let’s not forget the bowl of cantaloupe and watermelon – part of the Dunkin’ Donuts themed decor (and dessert).20130513-212547.jpgI love pink and orange together! Because it means: COFFEEEEEE!! (I even wore an orange sweater with a pink tank top!). 20130513-212605.jpg

Soon all the sisters arrived. My sister. My mom and her sister. My sister-in-law and her sister and her sister-in-law. Their daughters. Life gets so busy with all the running around – I figured who better to invite to my Dunkin’ Donuts spring flavors tasting party than SISTERS!!

Now I usually buy my Dunkin’ Donuts coffees at the local drive thrus (having children means I avoid getting out of the car as much as possible). But this spring, Dunkin’ Donuts is offering three spring coffee flavors ONLY at the grocery store. You’re going to want to look for Coconut, Triple Berry, and Strawberry Shortcake in the coffee aisle. Three flavors to bring the feeling of spring home with you! (But only for a limited time!).

All my sisters and their sisters are well-familar with Dunkin’ Donuts coffees, although like me, most of us buy it already made from the Dunkin’ stores. But if you’re a home-brewed coffee person, it’s great to know you can get the same coffee at the store when you pick up your regular groceries!

I made a big pot of each of the three flavors for iced coffee earlier that afternoon… everyone was game to try them all (and with half the room being from the Italian Persuasion, you can imagine how loud our chatter soon became with all the coffee we were drinking! LOL).

The overwhelming favorite was Coconut – it has a real “taste of the Islands” flavor! After the iced coffee tasting, I brewed a small batch of each coffee so we could test each flavor out as a hot beverage. Coconut still was the clear winner!!

Strawberry Shortcake came in second – we agreed it had a mellow strawberry flavor (I like the tiny hint of shortcake I could taste). The Triple Berry – well… we felt it was a tad “berry” – I guess it’s supposed to be!! I prefer to have the coffee flavor be dominant, but berry lovers will enjoy it, no doubt!

I think everyone loved the loud night of sister laughter as we sampled and compared our tastes in coffee! It was great to catch up over a cup of coffee and welcome spring with these fun new flavors from Dunkin’ Donuts!

The best part was getting to hand everyone a reusable grocery bag with a cool Dunkin’ Donuts iced coffee mug and a bag of their own spring flavor coffee to take home!! Of course, they all want to come over again soon – as long as I’m brewing up the coffee!!

What would be your favorite flavor?? Have you tried these new Dunkin’ flavors out yet? 

PS: It’s super easy to make iced coffee at home – just double brew the coffee and pour over ice! Yum!!
