Spring Cleaning with Starbucks and the Walmart Bakery #DeliciousPairings

"Spring cleaning" actually takes place about once every three months at our house.  With a family of 11, I'm sure you can imagine how fast the clutter piles up!  It's definitely not a job that can completed in one day---it actually requires a bit of planning.

Sometimes, when I'm faced with a not-so-fun task, I have to psych myself up for it by creating a welcoming atmosphere.  A hot drink in a pretty cup and a yummy treat on a vintage plate usually helps set a relaxing tone and gets me in the mood to make my home a little more homey.

Starbucks has a great line of coffees out, specially blended to compliment many of the flavors found in our favorite coffee-time treats.  I found the Starbucks Medium Breakfast Blend in my Walmart's bakery section.  Check out your local Walmart to choose a tasty blend.

The Starbucks Medium Breakfast Blend features notes that compliment the tastes of nuts, apples, blueberries and lemon.

Tonight, I paired this blend with the Apple Turnovers from the Walmart Bakery. I needed a sweet treat while perusing this Spring Cleaning Checklist that Melanie at Only a Breath designed.

Visiting a Starbucks shop is a real treat for my husband and I, and one that doesn't happen as often as we'd like.  That's why we're thrilled that we can find Starbucks brand coffees and hot chocolate mixes at Walmart.  We can enjoy a quality hot drink on a budget that works well for us.

We both tried the coffee and treat together and thought they complimented one another well.  Before sampling the apple turnover, we tried the coffee---a flavor we'd never had before.  We liked the smooth texture and thought it was not as bitter as lighter blends we've tried.

When enjoying them together, we found that the taste of the coffee was different as the complimentary notes were enhanced by the flavor of the apples.  It was a very nice pairing.

Planning for spring cleaning is sure to go much more smoothly with a yummy treat to enjoy!

  1. What a great treat to motivate yourself!

  2. There is nothing better than pastry and coffee together, in my opinion!
