    :)

    My favorite is the Chai tea by Cafe Escapes or the Black sweeten Iced Tea (made over ice in a tumbler) I would like a drink without the hydrog oils so have to stop buying that particular chai.

    I have some coupons for Bed, Bath, and Beyond, so while I'm looking in the Beyond department :) I'd love to hear what flavors you love! I would love something already flavored that doesn't need additional creamer but if there's one that you love with the creamer, please mention that too...
    :thanks:

    I love the Indian spiced chai, but more in the winter with a vanilla or chai creamer. I also like the lemon zinger herb tea with just a touch of real honey(or prickly pear cactus honey)
    At bedtime I love the sleepytime herbal tea, it does not need anything added it is great.
    For summer I like Sweet raspberry black tea from the perfect iced tea collection.

    I don't drink coffee so I have tried lots of the K cup alternatives

    I don't drink any of the non-coffee ones, but my favorite coffees are:

    Green Mountain Vermont Country Blend
    Donut Shop by Coffee People (their decaf is good, too)
    Caribou Daybreak Blend (for a light, morning coffee)
    Caribou Mahogany Blend (to have with dessert in the evening)

    What are those donut ones like? They seem to be really popular on the Keurig website under popular! Are they plain or what?!

    I like the iced coffee with mostly 1% milk and a splash of vanilla creamer and 2 Splenda packets.

    Pumpkin Spice is great but not available right now :-(.

    I tried a donut shop one but was not a fan.

    Ditto on the Green Mountain Vermont Country Blend.

    Ms Mar,

    How did you make Iced Coffee with milk since there's already ice cubes so it's not too diluted- curious how much milk for 1 k-cup?

    I think it's supposed to be a Dunkin' Donuts-style coffee. It's just plain coffee, but I really like it.

    For the iced coffee I have one of those refillable ice style straw cups, something similar to this but I got mine at Bed Bath and Beyond (couldn't find it on their website for a link) and it looks a tad different...
    http://www.reuseit.com/store/iced-coffee-p-3278.html

    I put ice about 3/4 full, a tad less. Then I brew the iced coffee using the middle setting. Then I put in milk until it gets to about an inch from the rim. My best guess is that I put in 1/3 cup milk. Then a splash, less than a tablespoon but more than a teaspoon of the creamer.

    The water does dilute the coffee, but by doing it on the middle setting even with the milk it's still a nice flavorful cup.

    I'm looking forward to my morning cup already :).

    I like the Cappucino and Donut Shop (reg & decaf). I'm not a fan of the Donut House though.
    I make ice coffee by using Donut Shop coffee. I fill a large cup 3/4 of the way with ice and brew it on the small cup setting. I put in a bit of French Vanilla Fat Free creamer. I actually like that better than their Iced Coffee.
    My Keurig was one of the best things I bought last year!
    :D

    My favorite is Island Coconut. I think it's just coming out for the summer.
