New Obsession - Dunkin Donuts Peppermint Mocha

I'm not a coffee drinker, but I will get and enjoy the Starbucks Peppermint Mochas, sigh -albeit in the smallest size.

On a whim heading out of St. Augustine last week, we saw a Dunkin' Donuts and a display of their Limited Edition Peppermint Mocha Keurig K-Cups.  So I bought a box to try at home and figured if I didn't like it, off it would go to hubby's workplace.  Well, I did like love it!   (Even better than Starbucks)
And bonus I can control the carbs/sugar by just using a little bit of skim milk, or a splash of CoffeeMate Natural Bliss Sweet Cream.   Saving money and calories and being able to enjoy this at home and not flip out my nutritionist* over the holidays -- Win-win!
(*Though I did find those white chocolate peppermint coated snowflake shaped pretzels at Costco again this year...shh!)

However, there aren't a lot of Dunkin Donuts in Texas.  While in Austin over the weekend, I Googled Dunkin and there was one store.  I called and they said they had three boxes left and offered to set them aside for me.  Sorry, Austin!  Hopefully they will restock and you will be able to get more, too.  And I shall return to the ATX in a few weeks to pick up my daughter for Christmas break and cross fingers, a few more boxes of Peppermint Mocha, also!

You mentioned controlling the carbs - what do they have for carbs, nutrition-wise? I assumed they would be full of sugar...

I checked around different websites and and no! Surprisingly! The only added carbs are from the CoffeeMate. And there are only 2 calories per K-Cup. Not unlike the barrista/store prepared ones. If you find out any differently, please let us know.
