It's still sitting there... on the porch. I had other things to tend to today. I'll probably open it shortly.
I think it came with four cups of something. Plus I've got those two eko-brew cups for my own Folgers ground. I'm really curious about trying the on sale brands I get, as that will truly let me know if it was my old machine going bad or not. But like said, the true benefit of one of these is the simplicity of dropping a K-cup in and filling up the land fills

The Caribou coffees are really worth the price when you want something special. Daybreak is a lighter roast, but packs a caffiene punch that rattles my teeth. I like the Caribou Obsidian, good dessert coffee with some chocolate liqueur.

No Daybreak, but it sounds like I'll have to get some.
My samplers came with a Newman's Own, also. Dang, he makes everything.
And I've got a tea called Sleepytime... sleep inducer? hmmm...
Too many choices!

Sleepytime is perfect for mellowing just before bedtime. Have fun and remember you do have to sleep tonight or Santa won't be able to stop by!

Strike Newman's Own off the list, too. Too bland. It doesn't pack the flavor of the Donut Shop cup, which is in the lead so far.

I kind of already figured that, Vit. Especially since I got two of those, lol.

At one time in these here parts, McD's couldn't giver away their coffee. So they tried Newmans Own. Another loser. Didn't last long.
