Green Mountain Coffee has some new flavors — just for the holiday season. They recently sent me 2 to try, Spicy Egg Nog and Gingerbread flavored. I loved both flavors, but the main winner in my home — the one we went through the quickest was the gingerbread flavor. I created a Peppermint Gingerbread Mocha and every single night, my family wanted a cup of coffee as we sat around watching Christmas movies.

In creating their flavored coffees, they often take a home cook’s approach… combining flavors and roasts isn't so unlike working with your favorite recipes. And who doesn’t enjoy the aromas and flavors of fresh-baked gingerbread?
After lots and lots of recipes, Green Mountain is proud of the result. The Fair Trade Gingerbread coffee offers the zesty ginger and spice aromas of Mom's old-fashioned gingerbread pastry and warm oven-fresh flavor.
The flavored coffees are free of calories and carbs, and have no additional nutritional impact. They do not add any sugars or sweeteners of any kind. So while the flavors may taste indulgent, they're absolutely guilt-free.
For some, the holiday season just isn't complete without eggnog… whether theirs is the traditional, spirited milk and egg punch, or something with a little less nog.
Green Mountain is all for holiday traditions, so they just couldn't help themselves. They brewed up a batch of coffee that's got the cinnamon and nutmeg spice of the nog you know, with a creamy body all its own. Add fresh (or whipped) cream, and brew up your very own holiday tradition!
The flavored coffees do not use sugars or sweeteners of any kind.
