Coffee Time!

It's giveaway time!
I recently found myself the owner of a few coffee-type items and since I don't even like coffee, I decided to pass them on to you. Because I love you and want you to be happy.
Here's what we've got:
Shown above is something new from Starbucks. Their version of instant coffee. You can read more about it here if you want.
Also 6 different varieties of Nescafe instant coffee.
I know most people don't like instant, but I remember that my mother preferred it. And the more bitter it was, the better.
In the pic above we've got Starbucks house blend coffee, some instant cappuccino (5 servings) and some french vanilla coffee candy. Well the beeswax candles don't really have anything to do with coffee, but I thought they were cute.
And to round it all out a cute little tote to carry your coffee supplies wherever you go.
Da rules:
1) Giveaway will run through this coming Friday (the 23rd) at midnight. I'll try to announce the winner the next day.
2) Continental US only
3) To enter just leave a comment telling me what your favorite coffee treat is. Or if your a weirdo like me and don't like the stuff, just make something up.
If your interested in a contest where the stakes are a bit higher ($5,000!) go check out this one at Boboli.

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest! I am a coffee lover. My fav treat - Starbuck's grande mocha w/whipped cream. But I'll do any type of coffee!

I guess I'm a wierdo too! I'm not a coffee drinker and never have been. I've tried to like coffee 'cause it seems like such a fun drink to drink- but I just don't like it. *sigh* But I know lots of coffee drinkers and this would make a great Christmas present so I hope I win!

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest"

I love coffee. I make my own mocha iced coffee that's wonderful and inexpensive.

I love cappuchino and lattes - the extra creamy milk makes it special :)

Hey Julie!
What a great giveaway!I love hazelnut latte and cafe au lait! Can't live without cup of coffee in the morning! I'm so excited about this treat!

Lora said...

Um, I love coffee. In just about any form. My favorite at home treat is to make an iced coffee with a bit of whipped cream. My favorite "out" treat is white chocolate mochas (nonfat) at Starbucks...or pumpkin spice if they are in season!

Krista said...

I love coffee! I have a serious 3 cup a day habit right now. I generally just drink it plain with a little skim and sugar, but I'm a sucker for the Starbuck's Pumpkin Spice latte around this time of year.

What a great giveaway!

I love me some Starbucks coffee! I had a chance to try the VIA instant coffee and I was impressed. I couldn't tell it was instant. The nice thing about it that you can add it into cold liquids as well for iced coffee. Yum!

pick me! pick me!

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!

Yes, I do like coffee, but I like coffee that doesn't taste like coffee. My favorite is a Peppermint Mocha from Starbucks. It's like Christmas in your mouth!

I love hazelnut mochas. They remind me of my favorite chocolates as a kid (and adult!). If I want a big splurge, I get it breve....which means they make it with cream instead of milk. Yes, I know, it's bad for me. It's a million calories. It's bad for my cholesterol. Yadda yadda yadda....I love it. I had the best hazelnut mocha ever at the original Starbucks in Seattle last weekend. Mmmmm.

Oh, and for anyone who has seen the Via commercials... I tried it, and I really couldn't taste the difference. And all I could think of was that town yeller guy from the commercial going, "Well I can't!" And I laughed out loud in the store and scared the barista. Cause I'm awesome like that.

Kim said...

I have never been a coffee drinker myself either! Doesn't it make you feel like an outcast? I feel like everyone around me is drinking coffee all the time. Then I walk in with my diet coke or diet pepsi and they think I'm weird - LOL! Isn't it all the same?

It's a very cute giveaway though :D

Kimmy said...

Oh I love love love coffee. I really love a shot of espresso with a pump of white syrup in it.

I love all things coffee...my current fave is, of course, pumpkin spice latte, non-fat, no whip. :)

Meghan said...

I love coffee! I'll drink it hoe and black, or iced with skim milk... or Coffee Ice Cream!

Ingrid said...

Okay, I can't lie....I'm a weirdo like you and don't drink coffee BUT does this count? I LOVE tiramisu? Now that's good stuff right there!

Oh, and I bet your wondering why leave a comment if I don't drink coffee. Well, my honey he loves the stuff and drinks about a pot a day. Plus, that tote is cute.

What a great giveaway! I love coffee and I agree, the more bitter the better, that's why I am addicted to Starbucks. My favorite coffee treat to myself is Coffee Cakes, ha! Seriously, I enjoy eating coffee desserts including Tiramisu :) I also drink cappucinos, frappucinos, lattes, etc. Gosh I feel like I might have a caffeine addiction.

Karen said...

I love coffee anything... from just a good hot cup of coffee to taramisu, to ice cream! Great giveaway - thanks :)

I NEED coffee...but every once in a while I splurge on a fun Cafe Mocha from a local Chocolate Company. They put a chocolate dipped spoon in and it's thick and gets all melty and you can lick it off as you drink it...omg...it's been too long :D
