Pre Game Day Breakfast with Starbucks and The Bakery at Wal-Mart #DeliciousPairings #Cbais


If there is one thing hubby and I love most it is a cup of coffee. Before children we could be found at our local Starbucks drinking and chatting. Now that we have kids we make Starbucks at home. 

Recently I took the boys to Wal-Mart to buy our pre football game breakfast. Since the Super Bowl is on Sunday I knew this would have to be a quick and light breakfast because we would be snacking all day.



We headed to the bakery first to see what baked goods they had.  Right away I noticed the Delicious Pairings display. We just ran out of coffee and I was going to buy the same old, same old but then I noticed that I could pair our favorite baked goods with coffee. Little M loves blueberries and when he saw the coffee with the big blueberry muffin he insist we try it. It also looked good to hubby and I. We grabbed the Medium Breakfast blend coffee that would complement the blueberry flavor. 



I loved the idea of blueberry muffins and coffee for our pre football game breakfast quick and easy! I picked up some apple juice for the boys and some fresh blueberries for all of us to eat. I have to say that I like trying new things but I have never liked my coffee black. I was thinking I would be adding creamer to mine and grabbed a bottle of hazelnut flavored creamer.



That morning I brewed our first cups of Medium Breakfast Blend coffee and then set out the muffins, blueberries and juice for the boys. It was so easy and I wasn't rushing. I was the first to try the coffee black. It was a dark bold taste but not bitter. I still thought it could use a little sweetness. Then I took a bite of blueberry muffin and there was the sweetness the coffee was missing.  I was very surprised how much I loved the pairing of the black coffee and blueberry muffins. Hubby also agreed he liked it and that if he added creamer it would have been too much sweetness.



Hubby and I were both glad to find such a delicious pairing and realized that coffee is like wine in the sense that certain roasts and flavors can pair with certain foods better than others.  Just like red wine pairs well with steak.



Both hubby and I are thrilled to try out some of the other pairings Starbucks has. I feel like the delicious pairing has created more of the Starbucks coffee house experience for us in our own home. I have to say that we really enjoyed our breakfast together and will be doing it again soon!

  3. Yum! Black coffee and blueberry muffins sound like my kind of breakfast! I love a bold coffee but tend to drink dark roast. I'll def. pick up some Medium Breakfast blend coffee to try next time I'm at Walmart!

    1. Yes I think when paired with something sweet I don't mind black coffee if it's Starbucks. You will have to pick up the coffee and muffins then let me know how you liked them!

  5. Awesome post!! Your little H is getting so big, so cute! I love Starbucks with Walmart bakery items. I too went from coffee shop to coffee in the kitchen once my son was born. But having cutie pies to sit with your coffee is worth it lol
