Donut Shop K-Cups-Puffy Tops OK?

Started 1321394190.323 in Coffee Talk | Last reply 1321655990.797 by bamamom

I just received a box of the Donut Shop k-cups with my new machine. However, the foil tops of them look "puffy" - sort of puffed up. Never seen them before, but is this normal and ok? I got a box of Dunkin' Donuts k-cups and they aren't like this. TIA.

Yes, they are ok, not sure why the tops puff, maybe from heat...just a guess, I am in FL.

Thanks so much. Can you tell I'm a K-Newbie? I just did my first cleansing brew. What is the trick for pouring the water from your mug into the machine without getting it all over the counter? Do you all use a pouring measuring cup or am I just naturally messy???

expatgal....The Keurig rep told me (when I was having my last issue with a brewer) that the cups should be puffy on top. I think your okay.

WHERE did you get Dunkin Donut cups? I tried to order from Keurig and was given a message stating they could only be purchased from Dunkin Donut stores. Stopped in FL on the way home from vacation, after seeing an exit with Dunkin, and they had Kcups. Bought two boxes. GONE already {#emotions_dlg.sad}

I know they are not the same. We have the Donut Shop coffee, hubby drinks it everyday, from Keurig BUT they have come out with the Dunkin Donuts coffee in K-cups, which is only sold at Dunkin Donut shop. Bought those on FL on the way home from vacation. I wish if they were going to put the Dunkin Donut coffee in Kcups that Keurig would sell it. Target has the Dunkin coffee in the bag, so keeping fingers crossed they will start to carry the kcups as well in the Dunkin coffees.

Bamamom, Coffee People brand donut shop k cups are much better than GMCR Donut House coffee. Coffee people's has much more flavor. They have other great k cups also. I have purchased them from Amazon and GMCR . Good decaf also.

Hi robkatyat...that is the donut shop brand we use, Coffee People. I've not used the GM donut house brand. Have used the Dunkin donut brand though. I did find the dunkin donut k-cups on amazon last night. Will probably order some from there rather than drive an hour with no guarantee that the dunkin donut shop will have any k-cups on hand.

Thanks.

Sorry, I guess I misread your post.

I am thinking that Dunkin will eventually sell in retail stores. As you probably heard Starbucks is now selling K cups in supermarkets and will start selling in their shops in the near future.

Hi Baggirl...I hope Dunkin will start selling the K cups in stores, it's an hour away to the nearest DD and they NEVER have the regular flavor K cups in stock. I can get bags of Dunkin at Target and may start doing that now that I decided to get an old fashioned perculator and make a pot of coffee. Had thought about a French Press after being on vacation and decided if I had to boil water and then pour it over the grounds, I would let the machine do it for me and make the coffee at the same time. Will still use the Keurig during the week though!

When I got the puffy ones I just pushed the cups down hard and pierced the bottom first. Then closed the lids.

Cheese with that whine?

I had read that the puffy ones are fresher.... and that you should pierce the bottom before closing to prevent air in the lines of the Keirug... so that's what I do.

tennpal15...thanks for the info. I'll mention that to DH as he is the one that drinks the Donut Shop.
