I found it in stock - what a happy surprise! Donut Shop Peppermint Bark Coffee! Let the Holidays Begin!

Good Morning Coffee Friends!!

Yesterday I did head out to the store to pick up those 2 items I needed and the 13 that were actually on my list.  Of course by the time I left I had about 103 items in my cart BUT it was good trip.  I have everything I need for our meals, Thanksgiving AND all my Christmas and holiday baking... so I don't feel bad about the bill at all.

But the little HAPPY MOMENT of my trip was spying the thing that makes me know the holiday season is upon us... Donut Shop Holiday Coffee, the PEPPERMINT BARK flavor.  If you've been a reader of my blog for any number of years you'll know I don't fancy flavored coffee too much, but in the winter time, I do love this particular Peppermint Coffee.  And it can be hard to find as it sells out immediately in the stores.  

I've tried other brands, I've tried off brands but none compare to this one and only that is somehow just pepperminty enough to be perfect.  Sometimes I add a smidgen drop of vanilla or a tiny little dash of vanilla syrup as I love 'vanilla peppermint' best of all but mostly I just drink it strong, hot and black.

I wasn't expecting to see it, so I grinned when I did.

They had just stocked the shelves and although the price is up from last year (what isn't?) I got 2 boxes for myself and one for a family member who loves it as much as I do.

Now, you CAN order it online (although you couldn't until a few years ago) I love to find it in the store... it's almost a bit of a game to see if I can find it locally since it sells out so fast.  Kind of like the joy of finding canning jars last Fall or the metal canning lids at any point in the last 18 months.  

Anyway.  I found them in stock and it made me happy.  I'm sipping it now... but I'm also 6 minutes behind schedule now that I've typed this post when I didn't really have time this morning.  

Off to get ready and hit the road!

Here is a link to the Peppermint Bark Coffee available (for now) through an Amazon link - in k-cup version and in a nice large box that just might get you through Christmas if you ration it.  *wink*
