Shrek likes the Nantucket, I just replaced the Tully's Breakfast Blend with it on my next order.

I only drink coffee (two cups) in the morning. One to wake up and a second with food (breakfast). If I was one who drank coffee all day and had a cup in the evening, a flavored coffee may be good. But I don't, so it isn't...

We're not flavored coffee fans either.

We tried the free Newman's Own med roast (made 2 cups from 1 pod) and we didn't care for it. Too harsh. All the other pods we've had have been really good.

Turns out my sister got a Keurig for Mother's Day and is experimenting. I offered her the Newmans for a test. I had it for a second time today and still don't like it so I'm willing to give it away. She mentioned a Gloria Jean coffee she really likes but I don't know which one.

I like regular coffee with a flavored creamer, usually vanilla with my favorite being Natural Bliss.

It's not that I want to cover up the coffee flavor, it's just that I think that vanilla goes well with coffee and helps smooth out the flavor a bit, without taking over the flavor of the coffee. Flavored coffee always tastes very artificial to me. I like the option of having plain coffee and adding flavor if I wish.

Sounds like a smart way to go. I just don't drink flavored coffee because I'm an old stick-in-the-mud who doesn't like change.

I still prefer the Donut Shop coffee in the K-cups. I didn't care for Newman's and Nantucket was too weak.
Flavored coffees? That's what hot chocolate is for
I still need to get around to ordering a sample pack of the Kinns... (whatever) coffee pods.

We got 2 free boxes of Tully's and one of Nantucket, both very good. Will probably gift someone with the box of Newman's Own, unless it improves with copious amounts of cream and Kahlua. We got 1 pod of Gloria Jean's in the mixed sample box, but it's hazelnut, so haven't tried it yet.

I REALLY like Gloria Jean's coffee. Hazelnut is a flavor I DON'T like though. The butter toffee is like dessert and coffee all in one cup with no calories! Hee hee hee.

Its interesting to see that everyone seems to agree about lots of the coffee types.

Andy, the Van Houtte also has a Belgian Chocolate flavor that is more dessert in a cup.

pacanis, when you do get around to ordering the Kienna pods will you let us know what you liked?
