Nerd Fuel: Starbucks – Salted Caramel Mocha

Wow! It’s been a few months since I’ve reviewed a coffee. This is because there just haven’t been any new coffee drops at my local grocery store. But with Fall on the horizon, the seasonal coffees are starting to roll out. This year, for whatever reason, Starbucks saw fit to include a Salted Caramel Mocha flavor with this year’s Autumn...

Nerd Fuel: Donut Shop – Snickers

To date, the original Donut Shop is one of my favorite coffee blends. Over the years I’ve tried a number of their flavored offerings and more often than not, I’ve ended up disappointed. Still, any time I see a new variety on the store shelf, I can’t stop myself from buying it. That’s what happened recently when I came across...

Nerd Fuel: Dunkin’ – Signature Series: Select Balanced

A lot of my coffee reviews focus on special seasonal varieties or off-the-wall flavors. But sometimes it is nice to just sit down with a simple blend and enjoy the coffee for its natural flavor. That’s why when I found this Dunkin’ “Signature Series” box sitting on my grocery store shelf, I knew I had to grab it. One of...

Nerd Fuel: Community Coffee – Mardi Gras King Cake

One of my favorite things to do is try different seasonal coffees. Fall is probably the best when it comes to variety. Winter is a close second. But the warmer seasons of the year don’t get quite as much love. Maybe this is because coffee is traditionally served hot, I don’t know. Spring and summer coffees are often blended with...

Nerd Fuel: Donut Shop – Cookie Dough So Delicious

To date, the original Donut Shop coffee remains one of my favorite K-Cups. Aside from their signature blend, they’ve also produced a number of various flavors under their “Donut Shop” branding. Over the years I’ve tried several of these spin-off coffees and had mixed feelings about most of them. But still, I’m a sucker for something new and when I...

Nerd Fuel: Dunkin’ – Cinnamin’ Nutmeg

Last year I tried just about every holiday-themed coffee I could get my hands on. This year, I’ve decided to dial it back a bit. Since my last seasonal coffee review was for a Dunkin’ product, I figured I’d continue the trend and check out their Christmas offering for 2021; Cinnamin’ Nutmeg. Generally speaking, I’ve always had pretty good luck...

Nerd Fuel: Dunkin’ – Falling for Maple

My last coffee review was meant to be the first of a few seasonal reviews. Sadly, in the end, Green Mountain’s Dark Chocolate Hazelnut just didn’t really seem much like a “fall-themed” coffee. But, I think I’ve found something that might fit the bill. A new limited edition from Dunkin’ (formerly known as Dunkin Donuts) – Falling for Maple. When...
