Community Coffee Company: Mardi Gras Gift Set
This Product Review Monday, I am going to take a break from baking products because it is Mardi Gras week! I can't think of a better way to start off Mardi Gras week than by reviewing a Mardi Gras inspired product from a company that started in Louisiana! Plus, the coffee is cake flavored!!!
The company: Community Coffee Company began selling coffee in 1919 in Louisiana. Today, Community® coffee can be found in grocery and convenience stores, offices, hotels and some of the best restaurants throughout the South. It is also available worldwide through CommunityCoffee.com. Community Coffee Company is the largest family owned and operated retail coffee brand in America.
The review: I was provided with the limited edition Mardi Gras gift set which came with a 12 oz bag of Carnival Cake coffee, a Mardi Gras travel tumbler, and Mardi Gras beads! I love the vibrant colors on the coffee tumbler. It immediately replaced my boring black to-go coffee mug. I really like that it has a screw on lid so there are fewer chances for accidents! The only downfall is it is not dishwasher safe.
The Carnival Cake coffee was a delicious blend of vanilla and cinnamon. I usually take my coffee with french vanilla creamer, but since this was a flavored blend I decided to try regular creamer. The taste was good and semisweet. The flavor by itself was not potent enough for me so I decided to add my french vanilla creamer to it after all. This was the key! The flavor of the coffee mixed with the french vanilla was outstanding. It actually became one of the best cups of coffee I have had in awhile! I guess the lesson learned is to use the same cream and sugar mix despite having a flavored coffee. This blend would also make a really nice after-dinner coffee. The flavor is just sweet enough that that it tastes like a treat!
I am not sure if it was the flavored coffee of the festive mug, but I do feel that this product captured the fun of Mardi Gras!
