Dunkin' Donuts K-Cups

Started 1318096948.15 in Kitchen & Food Talk | Last reply 1318569117.84 by visrn

I LOVE their dark roast cups. I have about 6 stores around me and they are all completely out of the dark roast. They have plenty of the other flavors. Goes to show what their most popular flavor is! I am wondering if there are any posters here who have tried this brand and agree that the dark roast is the best? I also hear that Starbucks will be coming out with their own K-cups in March of 2012. It is great that the vendors are expanding.

I have tried the decaf which is my favorite.

It is great!

I agree the dark roast is the best. Have tried the reg and decaf and have to put them down to the 6 or 8 oz. because they are so weak. I had such high hopes for these because I have always been a fan but these (for the price) are not worth the money.

I love their ground coffee but haven't had the opportunity to try the DD K-Cups. There are no Dunkin' Donuts shops in my area, but I have been hoping they would start appearing in other stores. Last week, I received an email from Amazon featuring various K-Cups, and lo and behold, it included Dunkin' Donuts K-Cups.

I was really excited until I saw the prices, which have now been lowered a bit, but it still comes out to $1.33 per cup for the Original Blend, and the Dark Roast is $1.43 per cup. At those prices, I'll keep brewing my DD coffee in a Solofill cup. {#emotions_dlg.laugh}

I tried them and they were not as good as Donut Shop. Don't remember what I paid but they were pricey. I will stick with Donut Shop which tastes better and I can get for a better price at BBB and Amazon.

I agree, Rapunzel. I love Donut Shop K-Cups. I buy them at Costco, BBB, and Amazon.

I absolutely LOVE the Dunkin Donuts dark roast k cup. I use it on the 8-9oz cup and it is perfect. They did a good job. However, they are just too expensive! I am in CA and we have no dunkin donuts in our area, or this county that I know of, and I looked online.

Before their national release in September, I pre-ordered with Amazon. It took a while as they were back ordered after release. They are just too expensive. They have to be the most expensive K Cup EVER made.

Do you think the price will drop? They are 1.47 each! I paid 19.00 for 14 cups! Had to try them, now I am hoarding them and eek them out only to ME! LOL

If anyone finds a DD coupon, please post and share. I agree they are expensive, but if I enjoy them that much, I don't mind splurging every now and then. Another $$$ K-Cup is the Barista line at GreenMountain.com that I have ordered several times. I love the Columbia and House Blend. The Italian Roast was tooooo strong. I also agree on the Coffee People's Donut Shop. Another one I love from the Coffee People is "Wake Up". It is a nice jolt in the morning!

I buy them for my daughter! She loves the Vanilla Blend from Dunkin Donuts. I noticed everybody has increased the price of K-cups so I didn't think DD was too bad.

I bought my daughter the Vanilla one and then I got a Regular Roast to keep on hand for company.

I am a tea drinker. Hubby will drink coffee but of late not so much!

I figured it out and they are about $.85 per cup.

I'm a decaf gal and DD decaf, black, had a slight bitter taste. Not buying again. Their regular coffees maybe better than the decaf.

Me too, but, I do wish they would run a good promotion for them. Hopefully they will be available at BB&B or Kohl's soon. I stock up in both of those stores using the promo coupons.

I sure have tried Black Tiger...talk about strong and bold...! I started growing hair in places I didn't know I could. It was way too strong for me. Jet Fuel as well. I should have brewed these with a bigger cup oz but I am not curious enough to reorder. I will be interested to see what StarBucks will be charging for their K-Cups when they are released this spring.

Definitely! Coffee People is #1 in my book. Love all their coffees !

I also liked Timothy's....no longer available in the U.S.

I'd love to get them for less!! I wonder if BBB will ever carry them. I kind of doubt it as it's too much competition for DD's.

I am also looking forward to trying Starbucks K cups. Although, I really don't care for their regular coffee. I am thinking that the K cups may not be as strong ! I love the fattening coffee drinks though!

I haven't seen a Dunkin' Donuts K-cup. I've seen Donut House and Donut Shop. Donut Shop is the best decaf IMO, but I'm anxiously waiting for Starbucks.

Starbucks K-Cups, I am hoping, will be not as strong as their coffee when you purchase it outright. When I buy from their stores, I dilute it a little bit. The Dunkin Donuts coffee regular blend is perfect for me when I get it from their stores, however, their regular blend K-Cups are very bland. Of course, to each their own; I am loving the expansion of the variety of K-Cups!

They are only available at select Dunkin Donut Shops !

Perhaps they will eventually be available at supermarkets and through other retailers.

I know that when Starbucks introduces their K cups in the spring, they will be available at Starbucks, supermarkets and other retailers. I think Dunkins will follow !

We stopped at a Dunkin Donuts while driving home from Maine on Saturday. They had the k-cups including the dark roast. They were $11.99 for 14 cups.

I will stick with my Tullys Kona blend extra bold.

It is hard to try a new flavor when it is so expensive to make a mistake!

There are no Dunkin Donuts here but I was just in the New York area where there were several stores near me. So, I picked up a box of the Original Blend K Cups -- $11.99 for 14. Debated on the Dark Roast but I couldn't fit another box in my carryon bag, so figured I would try these first and hopefully find them elsewhere later.

You can get Timothy's on Amazon. I just got some recently.
