Start your morning off with an indulgent, quick and delicious coffeehouse beverage at home. Whether you need to Perk Up or Amp Up, MAX Indulge by MAXWELL HOUSE will help you achieve just that!
It’s summer. My kids have playdates, camp and activities out the whazoo. While I am totally dreading even thinking about going back to school and getting into any type of routine, I can’t help but still feel the summer slump.
I have zero time in the morning to go through the drive through or the desire to spends gobs of money on some sort of “fancy beverage.” I need to roll out of bed and have my caffeine flowing through my bloodstream within 10 minutes before I hear the word “mommy” 700 times.
I was recently perusing the coffee aisle at Walmart trying to figure out how I am going to caffeinate myself since my single serve coffee machine just bit the dust 😞 I need something instant for the next week until my indecisive self can decide on the next coffee maker I’d be purchasing for our home. Big life decision here. I mean it involves my well-being and the well-being of others. #justkidding.
I like my coffee with a little pizzaz, meaning I like a little added flavor to it. As I’m still deciding on an instant coffee, in my blurry eyed state, my eyes happened upon MAX Indulge by Maxwell House in Mocha + S’mores flavor. BINGO! That sucker flew into my cart as fast as I happily laid my eyes upon it.
Not only was the mocha and s’mores flavor totally appealing to me but it’s perfect for a little bit of indulgence and a boost at the same time so I can enjoy a little “me” time in the afternoon. MAX Indulge also comes in Mocha + Salted Caramel, which also sounds delicious.
MAXWELL HOUSE also has new customizable K-Cup pods called MAX Boost by MAXWELL HOUSE where you can choose the level of caffeine to suit your particular needs. MAX Boost has 1.25X More Caffeine* & 1.75X More Caffeine**, than other brands on market. Totally fine by me as I need all the caffeine I can get to keep up with these kids and their schedules.
The next morning, I decided to heat up some water and make some Mocha + S’mores coffee. I had myself a delicious cup o’ joe in less than 1 minute. It was ultra satisfying and totally hit the spot. It was full of rich flavor and the perfect, instant morning indulgence.
I didn’t need any additional sugar or creamer but I did throw in a few marshmallows to make myself feel fancy as though I had just paid $4.00 for this coffee treat. Holla, because I didn’t have to get out of my pajamas. Did I just admit I’m still wearing my pajamas at 3 p.m.? Don’t tell my husband! Goodbye afternoon slump, hello “Perk Up!”
With this 90 degree heat, I often crave something cold and caffeinated so I decided to try MAX Indulge on ice. Delish! I paired it with a little pastry while both of my children unexpectedly took a nap! I just love unexpected me time!
I’m looking forward to finding a new single serve coffee machine so I can also try the new Max Boost. Although after thoroughly enjoying Max Indulge in Mocha + S’mores, I’ve got to try my hands at Mocha + Salted Caramel. I may just take a few extra days to pick out that coffee maker after all.
