A list of some of the most awesome, obscure, wonderful and crazy flavored and regular coffee beans! From Orange Juice flavored coffee to Flapjacks and everything inbetween!


Iced coffee in hand, I decided to take a break and log into the Coffee Talking website to update it with... something.  While thinking about what product to feature to day I decided to just start looking for coffee themed gifts or something in general.

Before I knew it, I was looking at a site that offered the most crazy awesome, obscure and sometimes... weird, flavored coffee.  Have you been looking for maple flapjacks flavored coffee?  Well, hey, you're in luck!  Or, how about the ever popular orange juice flavored coffee?  My goodness!  I've never even heard of most of these!

Take a moment to have some fun and click on some of these crazy flavored coffee's!  There are so many more than I listed but I literally had to make myself STOP and leave the page.  I just couldn't stop clicking to see what the next flavor might be!  From Pumpkin to Gingerbread, from Sugar Cookie coffee to Eggnog.  This is just fun!


Random Coffee Flavors in no particular order - I just linked them as I found them... and they were so awesome I couldn't stop myself!

Glade Expressions® new, authentic scents review

I'm a BzzAgent and I get to try new products in return for letting the company (and you!) know what I think of them.



Available in Mist or Diffuser forms
One thing about air fresheners and scents for your home;  sometimes they can smell....  fake.  Cloyingly sweet like grape candy, or overpowering like a badly imitated rose or apple.


Now there is an authentic fragrance option for your home.  Exotic elements like mangosteen, cardamom spice and Italian mandarin, by Glade Expressions.®





I found Glade Expressions at Walmart, but they are available in many and most retails stores, including grocery stores.  The scents available were a mixture for a variety of different homes and personalities;

Cotton & Italian Mandarin - Open your home with the bright, breezy blend of cotton and sparkling citrus, honeydew and sandalwood*
Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice - A ripe, spicy blend of sweet pears and crisp apple with a dash of cinnamon and clove that warms and invigorates
Lavender & Juniper Berry - Lush lavender blends with fresh juniper berry, eucalyptus and rose to relax the senses and open your home
Pineapple & Mangosteen - Evoke a tropical paradise with the blend of freshly cut pineapples and hint of tangy mangosteen, creamy coconut and passionflower
*Available in Glade Expressions® Fragrance Mist only.


I chose the Cotton & Italian Mandarin as I love the scent of cotton and linen fragrances as well as products with Mandarin orange.  While I was expecting the cotton to be the prevailing scent with a hint of Mandarin, I would say the opposite is true.  A strong Mandarin Orange scent with hints of cotton underlying.  When I used it throughout my home, I felt the scent was a good match for rooms such as the bedroom or kitchen but didn't care for the fruity scent in the more formal area's like the dining room and living room.

If you have daughters, however, you might have to hide this product from them or they might commandeer it for their own use!  I have a teenage daughter, who after walking into the house and smelling it; immediately asked if she could have it for her room!  She loves the scent!  The fruity scent with undertones of cotton was an instant hit with her and her friends.

I am currently using the fragrance mist, however you have two different choices;
Glade Expressions® Fragrance Mist
  • The first refillable fragrance mist from Glade®
  • Squeeze-to-release a soft, light mist of true-to-life fragrance that lasts
  • Instantly enhances any room and eliminates odor
  • Refillable with your favorite Glade Expressions® fragrance — so true-to-life, it's as if the ingredients are being cut open right next to you
  • With a removable label, the holder is artfully designed and chic enough to incorporate into any décor
  • Fragrance satisfaction guaranteed or your money back*
Glade Expressions® Oil Diffuser
  • The best non-electric oil diffuser for living spaces, delivering 3x more fragrance**
  • Refillable with your favorite Glade Expressions® scent — authentic, exotic ingredients like mangosteen and cardamom spice are unlike anything else in the fragrance aisle
  • Trendy holder (available in bamboo or white) matches home décor perfectly, allowing you to place true-to-life fragrance in any room
  • The intuitive snap-in-place setup makes the diffuser easy to assemble, refill and enjoy
  • The spill-free design fills living spaces with fragrance for 30 days
  • A wide and thin wick releases fragrance slowly, leaving you with consistent fragrance over time
  • Fragrance satisfaction guaranteed or your money back*

I will be reviewing the oil diffuser next and will be choosing a different scent so I can bring you my honest opinion in the near future!

Pumpkin Spice Coffee!



This morning when I took our puppies outside, I enjoyed the quiet time in part because there was a chill in the air and Autumn was teasing me.  Although the temperatures might rise with the sun, the mornings were cool and beautiful and made me crave a good pumpkiny spice coffee with just a hint of splenda or perhaps a Torani vanilla syrup.   And that is how this morning's post was born!

The coffee above (in the brown bag) is the Pumpkin Spice, Decaffeinated Whole Bean Flavored Coffee in a 12-ounce Bag with hints of pumpkin, nutmeg and spices.  Perhaps a dollop of whipped cream would be good on this one! 







And this last version is for those who like their coffee organic and already ground.  Plus, in this offer, you get 2 packages of coffee!  32 oz. instead of just 16.  Micro roasted, it has hints of pumpkin, nutmeg, cloves and more.  Pumpkin pie in a cup!

Searching for the best combination French Press / Coffee Travel Mug






This morning's coffee talk is regarding a product I knew existed,, but didn't really plan on getting one any time soon... until yesterday.  Now, it's high on my list of coveted coffee items and I'll be watching the household hold budget to see when I can squeeze an extra thirty bucks out to try this little gem.

Yesterday, my brother and I were discussing general emergency preparedness, living without power for a week or two, camping and solar options.  I joked that I bought a solar panel just large enough to be sure it powered my laptop, a cell phone and... a coffee maker.  His response was he didn't need one for that - he had his favorite combination French Press/Travel Mug.   I told him I had seen then but didn't really think I'd ever get one or need one.  I love my Keurig and it's so easy to brew right into my mug and go.

But he explained he loves his - not only for brewing a fresh cup of coffee on the go in the morning, but when he goes off on his weekend camping/hiking trips he just has to add the hot water to the grounds, press, and go. 

    I spent a good deal of time reading reviews last night and finding a mug that I felt was up to my standards.  I wanted it to be stainless steel, well made, keep grounds from my drink and yet be durable and well made so it didn't fall apart after a couple weeks of use.    In the end I decided on Planetary Design brand - and although I found the model I want - I decided to post three different options on this web entry so readers could see they have a few different choices.

From size, to style to color - there are a number to choose from, but from what I can tell from about 2 hours research, this is one of the best made out there right now.  If you know of a better one or have your own options, please let me know as I haven't invested in it yet and I'd love to hear your view!

If you drink Starbucks coffee at home, are you remembering to get your FREE COFFEE with the empty bag?

This has been around for a couple years now but perhaps you've never noticed the offer on bags of Starbucks coffee.

What is this FREE COFFEE offer?

A free tall brewed coffee when you purchase a bag of Starbucks coffee where you buy groceries. 

When you’re done using your bag of Starbucks coffee at your home or office, bring it into your local Starbucks store and hand it to a barista to redeem your complimentary tall brewed coffee. All the details are right on the back of the bag.  Go check for yourself!  And I'm happy to report I've redeemed bags all over the USA without a problem;  even in my local Target stores that have Starbucks inside them.  I just keep a folded up, empty bag in the bottom of my purse for those moments when I find myself without an extra couple bucks, but craving a nice, hot, cup of coffee.
