Have you ever had one of those days? You know the kind – you see your bus or train pulling away just as you approach the station, you countdown to midday only to realize you left your lunch at home, one meeting runs long and throws off your entire afternoon. Yeah, we’ve all been there.
You know what helps when you have one of those days? Finally making it to your front door in the evening and finding an amazing surprise waiting for you.
As a blogger, I feel very fortunate that there are opportunities out there to try new things or talk about things I already love. However, I also feel pretty strongly about authenticity, and as such I only look for opportunities that connect me with products and companies that I am genuinely interested in.
Imagine my delight a few weeks back when an opportunity came up to sample a new Starbucks product. Imagine my even greater delight to discover that I won!
And. It. Was. Good.
Included in this amazing care package?
- The coziest of cozy throws in a great, neutral plaid
- A $5 Starbucks Card
- A coupon for $1.50 off Starbucks K-Cups
- A really nice white mug with an embossed Starbucks logo
- Two hot chocolate K-Cups (one traditional and one salted caramel)
- Some Walker’s Shortbread (YUM!)
- A little box of Madyson’s Marshmallows to top that hot chocolate with
Admittedly, I’m not much of a coffee drinker. But what little coffee I do drink is almost always from Starbucks. My go to cold-weather drink? Hot chocolate, of course!
My office is full of coffee addicts, and I’m really excited to have something to use in our office Keurig. And despite our minor heat wave in NYC, I decided to try it right away. I went with the Classic Hot Cocoa, and it was so good – especially tops with those marshmallows.
So, rejoice, all you non-coffee drinkers! We can now enjoy some awesome hot chocolate K-Cups from a brand we all know and love.
Don’t forget the marshmallows!
