Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn!
Today is the first day of Autumn. It’s a pretty warm day in New York with scattered showers over the state but its finally starting to feel like Fall, one of my favorite seasons.
The best part about living in the Hudson Valley is that we have lots of Apple Orchards to choose from. My family and I love to go Apple Picking. It’s one of the many activities we enjoy doing as a family. We can pick our own apples, taste some freshly squeezed apple cider and indulge in warm apple cider donuts. If you’ve never had a freshly baked apple cider donut, you are missing out!
I’m particularly excited about this season because as a K-Cup Ambassador, I get to try out a wide variety of beverages including the new Apple Cider K-Cup Portion Pack.
I am LOVING the Apple Cider K-Cup Portion Packs! It’s like biting into a fresh “warm” apple. I’m a coffee addict who is now head over heels in love with Hot Apple Cider.
You can really taste the freshness of the apples. The cinnamon and brown sugar makes it complete.
It tastes best when brewed on the 8-oz setting (which is what Green Mountain suggests). But if you’re not into sweet drinks, then the 10-oz setting would be fine. And if you’re in the mood for some iced cold Apple Cider, grab your Brew Over Ice tumbler, add ice and brew the K-Cup right over it (6-oz would probably work best – it’s my personal choice). It’s delicious cold as it is hot. You can’t go wrong. My girls love this stuff. I think I may have to buy some more really soon because I’m running out!
With Hot Apple Cider, Green Mountain Naturals puts a new spin on the familiar favorite by capturing the fresh, juicy flavor of sweet orchard apples in convenient K-Cup® portion packs.
The Hot Apple Cider K-Cup® portion packs are made with real apples and natural ingredients — nothing artificial is added. You get a warm, comforting mug with a hint of brown sugar and a touch of cinnamon. What used to be a seasonal item, is now available year-round!
