I have a confession – until about a year ago, I wasn’t much of a coffee drinker. Now I LOVE coffee-flavored snacks, ice cream, etc, but I just didn’t have that daily cup of coffee like my peers were always sharing about. Then came our little boy Charlie. I have no qualms blaming him for my initiation into the caffeinated world of roast.
Now a morning without my mug filled with a cup is a rare one. But even before our second boy was born, I would still enjoy an espresso drink on occasion. When I was touring playing music, I would get excited to be on the East Coast because growing up there was never a Dunkin’ Donuts nearby in San Diego. Whenever we were near a Dunkin’, we had to stop – in all honesty there were about two dozen other restaurants that we had similar rituals for.
It wasn’t until we moved to Hollywood (and right above a Dunkin’) that I got to fully experience the various coffees, snacks, and breakfast options.
But even now that I live in New York, I have a brand new way to get my Dunkin’ fix – with Post teaming up with Dunkin’ to create Post Dunkin’ Caramel Macchiato and Mocha Latte cereals.
If you follow me at all, you already know that I am the ultimate snacker, and if you have known me for any length of time, you’ll also know that the top of my list is a big bowl of cereal and milk.
It’s been a long time since I was blown away by a new cereal, but these two are unreal. Both cereals feature crunchy cereal pieces – with the Caramel Macchiato cereal adding caramel-swirled marshmallows and the Mocha Latte cereal having a hint of chocolate and latte-swirled marshmallows.
Both cereals are authentic to their Dunkin’ namesake drinks with the perfect amount of sweetness and that familiar espresso flavor.
The cereals contain only a very small amount of caffeine, roughly 1/10th of a cup of coffee.
I’ve now created a new routine for early mornings: I catch up on my social media, chats, and Youtube subscriptions with a bowl of Post Dunkin’ cereal, a tall mug of coffee (which pairs perfectly, might I add!) and Charlie – who is always the first one awake in this household.
