Even though the professional football season is over, my family still loves the game … and the team we love most — Go Bears! To celebrate the countdown until the next season begins, I thought it would be fun to host a football themed breakfast with some delicious pairings from Walmart.
Currently, there’s a display in Walmart with some delicious breakfast pairings using Starbucks ground coffee with fresh treats from the bakery. I adore a good cup of coffee in the morning, so I was excited to try Starbucks Medium Breakfast blend with Walmart’s The Bakery Signature Blueberry Muffins. Much like wine, when paired properly, coffee can enhance the flavors of food– which makes for a more enjoyable experience.
From the display: Medium Roast Coffee –Pairs well with nut, apple and blueberry flavors.
I happily paid $6.98 for the Starbucks ground coffee (what a steal!) and $3.48 for The Bakery blueberry muffins. The muffins looked divine in the packaging and I had to restrain myself from breaking one out right there in Walmart.
For my football themed breakfast, I brought out our favorite football mugs and picked up some cool football plates. I wanted a light breakfast because part of the experience was tasting the coffee with the muffins. I brewed the Starbucks coffee in my Keurig by using a reusable K-cup — it’s so easy and much less expensive to do it this way, especially with Starbucks coffee. I still can’t believe the amazing prices at Walmart!
My husband and I drank the coffee first, without trying the muffin. As expected, the coffee was excellent. It was smooth and enjoyable– exactly what you’d expect from Starbucks.
Then we tried the muffin with the coffee…. Oh my NOM! The medium breakfast blend brought out the sweetness of the blueberries and the butteriness (that’s a word, right?) of the muffins. The pairing was perfect!
I quickly realized I did not buy enough muffins because they were gone in an instant. I chose to dunk my muffin in my coffee… it was pretty awesome.
Our football themed breakfast was a success and my family has already requested another round of muffins from The Bakery at Walmart. I’m a Starbucks drinker when I’m out shopping, but this was the first time I picked up a bag to brew at home. The coffee is just as good and the price can’t be beat– I will definitely be adding Starbucks ground coffee to my rotation of brands to purchase again.
