I don't usually even LIKE flavored coffee,* but I bought Trader Joe's Wintry Blend recently, I don't even know why,** and IT IS DELICIOUS.
My guess is that either a) their "all natural spices!" thing is true and I like this because it tastes less fake than do most flavored coffees - honestly, they usually all taste the same to me - or b) I've just bought into that idea and my brain is TELLING me the flavor is better. Or c) Christmas magic. Dunno! (Or, actually, d), which just occurred to me as I sit here and sip - it's genuinely more spicy rather than having that cloying sweetness that flavored coffee often has.) Anyway, maybe give it a try, if you like this kind of thing and are willing to brave the lethal Trader Joe's parking lot in December/ever? (Actually, I discovered as I was looking for the product link that you can buy this from Amazon! It's much more expensive there than in the store, but did you know you could get Trader Joe's store brand products that way? I certainly did not, and I fear this is dangerous information.)
And a larger question: Are you as susceptible to Special Seasonal Foods as I am? Any good ones I should try?
* I also don't like green tea but adore Trader Joe's Candy Cane Green Tea, so maybe they have some kind of beverage magic?
** This is a lie. It was because of the packaging. Note to marketers: I'm easy. Slap a snowstorm and an old timey village on your label and I'll try almost anything.
