HDG- #Review & #Giveaway: Caribou Coffee Holiday Pack
I love coffee! I love iced coffee, hot coffee, espresso, lattes, you name it, I will drink it or at least try it. So I was super excited when I got the opportunity to review the Caribou holiday Gift pack featuring the latest holiday flavor: Reindeer Blend! Don't you just love that name!?!
But first, let me tell you about Caribou's latest Facebook promotion. It's the Sweater Maker. You just head on over to Caribou's facebook page and click on Sweater Maker to get started. You get to design your own virtual sweater and when you are finished Caribou Coffee will donate a sweater to someone in need up to 10,000 sweaters! How awesome is that? Talk about paying it forward! I hate the cold so I know how nice a sweater can be on a cold day or night! Here's my "ugly" sweater I created! LOL
My Take: Here's the awesome gift pack I received from Caribou coffee:
The first picture is my gift in a cute little box. I just had to show it. The gift included a 24 oz tumbler, perfect for iced coffee! YUM! Then a reusable coffee sleeve for those hot coffee drinks on cold days! Perfect! A cute little Be Merry ornament that went right onto our Charlie Brown Christmas Tree. And finally a 16oz bag of the fabulous Reindeer blend in whole beans. (No need to worry about whole beans. I have a nifty little coffee grinder that I used to grind it right up for use in my Keurig! The Reindeer blend brings together coffees from Central America combined with heavy-bodied and syrupy-rich flavors from the Indonesian archipelago - including a rare, two-year-aged Sumatra that gives a hint of caramel and a dash of spice. Now I must admit, this was a little strong for me. It smells awesome and I couldn't wait to try it out but I did add some creamer to it to make it a little more towards my tastes. Other than that, I loved it and it's a perfect drink for a cold morning or night.
Buy it: You can visit your local Caribou Coffee House to try out the holiday classic Reindeer Blend and the other cute accessories, or you can order them online.
