Fueling Summer Vacation with Maxwell House Single Cups

Today is my preschooler’s last day of school for the year. My older daughter will be finishing up just 2 weeks later. Then we are officially on Summer Vacation. Ahh, sweet Summer Vacation. Sleeping in until late morning. Lounging around in our pjs until noon. Peacefully reading a book in my lawn chair while the kids play so wonderfully together in the yard…..

Hahahahahahaha! Oh, wait, let me snap back into reality! I have three kids under the age of 7. There is no sleeping in. If anything, they are up even earlier during the Summer months. So, our days will begin no later than 7am and from that point on I will be continually questioned as to what we’re going to do today, when are we going, what will we do next!

And, so, survival mode kicks in. And the coffee.

I’ve written before about how I’ve never been a big coffee drinker, despite my family’s deep love for the drink. But then, somewhere around the third kid, it happened. And I haven’t turned back.

But I’m just a one cup-a-day person. Late morning or early afternoon as a little pick-me-up. A delicious, five or ten minutes to myself, pick-me-up.

I recently was asked to try out the New Maxwell House Single Serve Cups to see how I liked it or how it compared to my regular cup of joe. Maxwell House? As in the same blue can of coffee I remember seeing growing up sitting on my grandparents’ and parents’ kitchen counters? Hmm…interesting. Let’s do this!


So off to Walmart I went to find the New Maxwell House Cafe Collection Single Serve Cups.


I opted for the House Blend, a medium roast. And I quickly realized why it was a staple in my family’s homes. It has a classic, honest taste to it. It’s just a good cup of coffee. Perfect.


I love that the coffee compliments whatever delicious treats I’m pairing with it. And, while I don’t often make it through an entire cup of coffee, it definitely is good to the last drop! Or at least the last drop that hits my lips before being pulled away by some sort of kid-centric crisis. You know, like when your toddler decides it’ll be fun to jump into the bath with his sisters while still fully clothed. Yeah, never a dull moment.


What fuels you through Summer Vacation?
