Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee At Grocery. Sleepy Mommy Approved. {giveaway}

Between me, my sister and my sister-in-law, there were three new babies born in 2011. . . three new babies and three new sleep deprived mamas.

(Oy, sleep … or the lack thereof … seems to be a reoccurring theme around this blog)

Each time I am around one of these ladies, one named Sarah and one Sarabeth (yeah, my kidlets have called each one the other’s name more than once), we talk about being tired.  Fatigued.  Bone-Weary.

We’re always in desperate need of coffee… or, everyone around us desperately needs us to drink our coffee.

This past month, I been dallying with a new Joe in my cup: Dunkin’ Donuts Original Blend Coffee.

Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee at Grocery

For those who adore the addictive dark liquid served along side the edibles at Dunkin’ Donuts,the ablity to purchase their roasts in a grocery store is a dream come true.

That’s right — Dunkin’ Donuts can come home with you anytime you visit your grocery store.

Huzzah!“, cry we the coffee drinkers of the world.  Getting our “DD” fix can now happen in the comfort of our own kitchens and our own jammies … no need to change out of bathrobes or attempt to fix our bed-head.

We can drink our coffee anytime we want.

It’s a new day for Dunkin’ Donut coffee lovers.

You can check the Dunkin’ Donuts site to see where to find any of their eight varieties for sale.  Most of the blends come in three sizes and range in price from $8.99 (for the 11 and 12 oz packages) to $19.99 (for a 37 or 40 oz package).

(while there, you can also sign up for promotions, perks, coupons, and more!)

So How Does It Compare

I was pleased with my Dunkin’ Donuts coffee — and, according to my husband, I’m picky about my coffee.  Personally, I don’t know that I’m picky so much as particular.

Coffee passing my lips must be three things: hot, strong and full-flavored.  None of this thin, watery, weak, “light roast” junk for me.  I want a coffee with personality and the ability to get my synapses firing in the morning.

(not always an easy feat)

The Dunkin Donuts at Grocery “Original Blend” meets my three criteria — easily.  Of course, in all honesty, I did make it a tad stronger than suggested, but (after all*I* was the one making it.  In my kitchen.  By myself . . . ’cause Dunkin’ Donuts says I can.

Try It Out Yourself {giveaway CLOSED}

One reader will win two packages of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee  —  one package of their Original Blend and one package of the Decaf Original blend — and two Dunkin’ Donuts coffee mugs.

    My husband can drink coffee all year round, even when it’s summer. Me, I like it when it’s nice and chilly outside. So often, I’ll drink a cup in the morning to warm me up.

    I drink coffee all day long but my first cup is my favorite cup. I get up before anyone else and have my first cup of coffee outside in our porch swing. I love the feeling of a new day with lots of possibilities and my coffee and I are starting it together.

    We enjoy our coffee at home so that we can grind whole coffee beans of our choice and, then, immediately brew the ground beans into a fresh pot of coffee to enjoy with breakfast

  5. Pauline M says

    I love my coffee first thing in the morning before the kids get up to go to school with alot of french vanilla cream and a little splenda!

  6. Vida F says

    I drink coffee anytime of the day or night. I love my coffee. The problem is, so does my dobie. She begged for a sip when she was young, and now at 12 she has to have her coffee too. Before I am slammed about the dog drinking coffee, my coffee loving vet had a cat that also had to have his coffee too, and he lived to be 16. I say, enjoy life, and drink coffee.

  7. Michelle Spayde says

    I used to drink coffee all of the time, but have (mostly) scaled it back to mornings. I have my first cup when I take my dog out in the early AM

  8. Patricia Wojnar Crowley says

    I start every morning with a cup! I love the aroma…what a great way to wake up!

  9. Beverly M says

    I love having a good cup of coffee while I’m checking my e-mails in the morning and Dunkin Donuts coffee is my favorite, so I would love to win this contest! Thanks for having it.

  10. Diane W says

    My favorite way to enjoy Dunkin Donuts coffee is hot with Half and half but make sure it’s a good strong cup of coffee.

  11. Valerie Taylor Mabrey says

    Love to have a black cup of coffee while reading a nice book on the couch

  13. Michelle W says

    I drink coffee all day long, and the first thing I do every morning is start up my coffee pot.

  14. Lo says

    I have to admit I drink coffee all day. One of the best/most peaceful times is when I have woken up before everyone in the family and I am drinking it in the dark quiet morning.

    I am a sissy coffee drinker. It has to be a flavored coffee with lots of milk and sweetener, usually stevia.


  17. Karen M says

    My favorite coffee time is on the weekend, still in my jammies, kicking back and chilling before the day gets underway.

  18. says

    My favorite way to enjoy my cup of coffee is first thing in the morning, when I am the only one up in the house. With my computer, of course…reading blogs. :)

  19. Paula Hafner says

    I love a cup of coffee first thing in the morning. Hubby leaves a cup made the way I like, on my headboard when he leaves for work.
