Campbell's Fresh Brewed Soup K-Cups Missing In Action

Campbell Soup K Cups two

Just last year we had crazy news that Campbell’s Fresh Brewed Soup K-Cups were coming to a Keurig brewer near you. It’s been awhile and they were supposed to ship this Fall but so far nothing. We haven’t heard a peep about soup in a K-Cup.

The agreement last year was supposed to bring the number one single serve coffee maker and the number one soup maker together to bring you Campbell's Fresh-Brewed Soup. The convenient snack will be prepared at the touch of a button, and a mini-meal from a K-Cup will be produced.

We still want our Campbell’s Soup K-Cups - don’t you?

Lavazza Perfetto Coffee K-Cups Review

Keurig lavazza perfetto kcups brewer kcups

 

We conclude our series of Lavazza K-Cup reviews today with the final flavor in their line-up… Lavazza Perfetto K-Cups. This is apparently the strongest roast & strongest tasting coffee of the line-up. Given how disappointed we were with their Gran Selezione K-Cups last time, we’re truly hoping for a return to form this time. Lets see if Lavazza strike out or knock it out of the park. 

Brewing the Lavazza Perfetto K-Cups resulted in aromas of smoky hickory tinged with notes of dark chocolate throughout with a very mild earthiness underneath. Billed as an espresso roast, flavor seemed more akin to a dark roast and wasn’t anywhere as strong as what we were expecting. We did however notice a nice blend of chocolate flavors with caramel notes hiding underneath near the end of each sip.

Get a Starbucks Coffee Every Day for the Rest of Your Life

Starbucks coffee 1 for life

If you love Starbucks coffee you may want to visit one of their cafes twice a day this fall for the opportunity to get free “Starbucks for Life.” Starbucks has announced several traffic-driving initiatives for the holiday season, and it’s offering 100 uniquely designed Starbucks cards that would give customers a chance to get their daily cup of joe for free at the coffee giant’s locations.

The promotion will begin in early December and customers will have the chance to win the promotion twice a day. The promotion is for one free beverage or food item every day for 30 years.
Starbucks said customers can potentially win the “Starbucks for Life” cards by swiping their Starbucks store card or paying with their mobile device.

Imagine the shear number of pumpkin spice lattes you could consume over 30 years of Falls. We go to Starbucks just about twice a week and then a few times on the weekend so our chances aren’t as good as you daily drinkers but knowing we could win will make our visits a little more exciting.

Pumpkin Spice with John Oliver

Pumpkin spice latte jon oliver

Even though John Oliver is on hiatus until next weekend, he did decide to do a web exclusive video on our current trend in Fall coffee and food - Pumpkin Spice. Did you know an average American eats 5 pounds of pumpkin each year? That’s an awful lot of pumpkin spice products per person. We do love our pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks, but we could do without all the pumpkin spice pastries. Also - pumpkin pie isn’t one of our favorites and John Oliver sums it up pretty well on how much we aren’t a fan. Video after the jump.

Lavazza Gran Selezione Coffee K-Cups Review

 

Gran selection lavazza kcup

We continue our series of Lavazza K-Cup reviews today with the next flavor in the line-up… Lavazza Gran Selezione K-Cups. This is billed as dark roast and is supposed to be Rainforest Alliance Certified while having intense flavor and chocolate undertones. Let’s see how things go, shall we?

Brewing these K-Cups resulted in mild smoky & earthy aromas which weren’t anywhere as strong as what we were expecting given the fact that this is a dark roast. Flavor was a mix of astringent smoky notes up front followed by some hits of smoke, very mild hints of molasses and mild chocolate notes in the background. Things were rounded-off with some faint berry notes hiding underneath near the end of each sip.

You Know It's Fall - Archer Farms Kettle Corn Coffee

Goofy coffee

AB has found evidence it’s really Fall again in the US - Archer Farms Kettle Corn Coffee is available for a limited time at Target. We love a good handful of kettle corn, but we’re unsure the flavor was destined for coffee. Have you tried it? If you did - did it try you instead? Sound off in the comments if you know of other crazy Fall coffees we should know about.

W.B. Mason SHAZAM Coffee K-Cups will be Keurig Brewed

Shazam coffee k cups

Keurig Green Mountain, Inc. announced a multi-year agreement to offer W.B. Mason's SHAZAM coffee in K-Cup packs for the Keurig hot brewing system in away from home channels. SHAZAM will be the first brand to come into the Keurig family from a Keurig Authorized Distributor. The name Shazam fills the entire staff with nostalgia about a certain superhero, and for some a music listening app, but for K-Cuppers it’s coffee that will come to mind.

The companies plan to launch the new SHAZAM coffee K-Cup packs later in the month of October 2014 with Light, Medium, and Dark Roast blends exclusively to W.B. Mason customers. SHAZAM coffee promotes that it will ‘Make Your Day Magical,’ at a competitive price. All SHAZAM coffee K-Cup packs will be marked with the Keurig Brewed seal indicating the product has passed rigorous testing, assuring the quality, taste and integrity consumers expect from the Keurig brand. It also means the SHAZAM coffee K-Cup packs will work in your Keurig 2.0.

Green Mountain Coffee Autumn Harvest Blend K-Cups Now Available

Autumn harvest blend

Green Mountain has released their Autumn Harvest K-Cups and since picking up a box at Target we can’t stop drinking this coffee. The coffee uses a set of lighter and darker roasted coffees to produce a very mild medium roast coffee. The Autumn Harvest Blend offers the clean, bright flavors of exceptional Central American coffees, and the sweet smoke and caramel of our French Roast. 

We think you’ll enjoy this coffee all Fall and Winter long. Green Mountain Coffee Autumn Harvest Blend K-Cups are available in the US at Target and other online retailers like Amazon. Green Mountain Coffee Autumn Harvest Blend K-Cups will work in all K-Cup Brewers including Keurig 2.0.
