The KKD promotion included a large coffee, regular, dark roast, or decaf.
The 2nd part of the promotion was one free glazed donut.
There were an endless line of people just getting the free promotion. Others were there to order the Fall Donuts.
All the hype leading up to this June 12, 2015 release would make you think, and hope, that Jurassic World would be awesome. Plus viewing in IMAX 3D, with the 3d glasses, would complete this movie experience.
Quick Review: This was kinda lame for a movie. Way too many Lifetime Style scenes. Lots of blood, and angry dinosaurs. Lots of things made this lame – the Raptor Whisper scenes, the lack of good 3d scenes, and total lack of drama. Oh, and the obvious product placements.
Brands Seen in Jurassic World:
Just read this great news…
Drinking a daily cup of coffee — or even several cups — isn’t likely to harm your health, and it may even lower your risk of dying from chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease, a new study in the New England Journal of Medicine suggests.
On that note, I’ll drink a coffee and celebrate.
While not totally coffee related, this is news many obsess over.
The Book is to be a coffee table book of a collection of selfies. To be released in the Spring of 2015. Too late as a Christmas gift, it may make a good high school graduation gift.
Estimated to be 352 pages.
We know she drinks Starbucks coffee, we have seen photos of her with a Starbucks at an airport.
Read this awesome news today while reading about the free coffee promotion of 2014. We hope the stores have room for this new coffee. Perhaps the McDonalds K Cups will follow?
Saw this sign inside Starbucks, but it was turned towards the wall (January 20, 2014). We did hit the original VIA taste challenge way back a few years ago, but missed getting the samples for this test. In our opinion a handcrafted latte is just more appealing.
Did you get to partake in this event? Send us photos and your thoughts so we can add them to this page!
Saw this in the grocery store recently. The Life is Good brand, mostly seen on T-Shirts, now has their own unique coffee! The roasts have ‘cute’ names such as: Happy Medium, Light Hearted, Dark and Daring, Smore to Love, and Banana Bread Bliss. Not sure if that last one tastes like bananas, or just goes well with the bread.
We didn’t see K Cups of this, but we are sure they are on their way!
Yeah, a little blurry, but we will update the picture soon. Lose ks like the same drinks this year.
We also took photis of the Christmas themed products, including the glazed Snowman cookie.
The 2012 Pumpkin season has set on Dunkin Donuts, this time with in-store Pumpkin K-Cups. Offered ready to drink is the pumpkin spice coffee, latte, and iced pumpkin coffee. They also have the glazed pumpkin donuts, and the non-pumpkin donuts with the orange, white and black sprinkles.
The donut is, well, decent, but does not pair well with a coffee also containing pumpkin spice. Recommended you get a neutral kind of donut when you get the hot pumpkin coffee. The iced coffee with pumpkin has a better taste than the hot …
September 2012 – The K-Cup patent expires in September 16th of 2012 allowing companies to make their own variety of K-cup. This opens the doors for small companies looking to make private label K-Cups. Does this mean we will see Walmart varieties of K-Cups? Will Maxwell House and Eight O’Clock coffee fill up the shelves in the coffee aisle? With the space the K-Cup boxes take up on the shelves, there will be an endless variety of private label kcups with little room in stores. Guessing this will boost the …
March 09, 2012 – Starbucks announces that they will create and sell their own version of the Green Mountain Keurig machine which will be called Verismo. The machine will directly compete with Green Mountain, who are the current leader in machines that can process the K-Cups. The announcement of the Verismo comes out less than a year after Starbucks were able to create their own branded K-cups.
Arguments vary on the possible success of the new Starbucks machine including the available varieties of K-cups and that people who drink all varieties …
