Nothing’s better than a delicious pairing. Just like wine has a pairing, coffee does too. I learned this from top Starbucks folks when they introduced me to Starbucks Evenings. But, to celebrate National Administrative Assistants Week, I decided to thank the women in my husband’s office by bringing them a special treat for breakfast. I went to Walmart to find a delicious pairing to go with what every office needs, Starbucks coffee.
Walmart has these great displays in the Walmart bakery that show you the best food pairings for the different types of Starbucks coffees.Whether its a dark roast or a blonde roast there is a sign that tells you what flavors are complimented with that blend.
I went with the Starbucks Blonde Veranda Roast that is mellow and soft. The display suggests that it pairs nicely with citrus, milk chocolate or nut flavors. I generally buy my Starbucks from the coffee shops but it’s a great value inside Walmart stores and I can price match if it’s ever offered cheaper elsewhere.
So I paired it with a Banana Nut Muffin from the Walmart Bakery. These muffins are so tasty and rich with flavor. When you open the container you can smell the bananas immediately. They are so moist too. The Veranda Blonde Roast really does compliment the nut flavors in the muffin.
There are only 4 women in my husband’s office. He works in a construction industry so the women are surrounded by tons of men all the time. I worked in the office part time for a while and it was nice when the ladies could just enjoy something themselves. So I brought them these great Banana Nut Muffins and Starbucks Veranda Blonde roast to enjoy a little down time at the office. It was my way of thanking them for the support that they give the whole office to keep it running smoothly. Because let’s be honest, if there weren’t any men in the office, can you imagine how much of a mess (physical and clerical) it would be?
The ladies were quite thankful for their morning treat. I told them they were not allowed to share any of it with the men in the office. It was girls only. They liked that even more. Food tends to disappear in an office full of hungry men.
