Probably not. They do baked goods. Donuts, coffee cakes, danishes, etc. They’re okay. Not bad for a convenience chain product, but can’t hold a candle to actual bakery goods. Unless you have an awful bakery.
There’s Palmer. They’re known for “bulk quality” holiday candy.
@rileyper, Same, Same!! It gives you a topic to complain about each & every damned day, especially spoiling those beauuutiful lovely mornings where you & ur wife’re really getting along! Can’t you smell that smell, the smell that surrounds you
Rather than coffee pods, I initially thought that these were actual cups. You know, cylindrical vessels in which you drink beverages out of. After all, there’s a coffee cup on the package. And that they were somehow flavored. And I got excited at first.
First time I actually felt compelled to click Meh in a long time. Unless you already know you like these Entenmann’s flavors in your coffee, this isn’t that great of a deal. I personally found the party cake kinda gross and the other flavors bland at best. I will admit I’ve never had the Cinnamon Crumb Cake though. If you look around enough there are 50-count sampler packs that include most of these flavors as well as other coffees for around the same price. Granted you get 10 more here, but it may be 10 of a flavor you don’t like instead of 3 or 4.
@jeffcombs9 the lack of any logo next to your handle indicates you cancelled “Member” status, not VMP… so the big benefit of Member status is, as used to be the case with VMP, you can turn it on and off at will.
So leave it off until you wish to buy something. Then turn it back on and you’ll have 30 days of already paid shipping to hope for a second deal. Put a reminder on your electronic calendar for 30 days to turn it back off.
If you’re not willing to go thru that hassle you haven’t yet earned the cheap merit badge.
@jeffcombs9@RedOak I lost my VMP a couple months ago when the credit card I had on file here expired. I feel kind of free now. It’s kind of nice that I don’t feel obligated any more to check on here daily for ways to make my $5/mo shipping worthwhile…
A while back I did some software consulting for Entenmanns (actually owned by Bimbo Bakeries out of Mexico) down in Long Island. The corporate building was right next to the factory that made the baked goods. In the lunchroom was the ‘wall of Entenmanns’, a collection of their ‘defective’ stuff that couldn’t pass the photo check and be shipped out. You were allowed to take 2 home a day. My kids loved it but my wife hated it. I didn’t understand why everyone was NOT fat
I’ve had the good fortune to be at the Krispy Kreme HQ once. Same there. Free range donuts in two different locations with the biggest (most complicated looking) self serve coffee station ever, expresso, latte, frapachino,amerinano… you name it. It was AWESOME. (que bot)
In 1961, Entenmann’s had expanded from Long Island to New Jersey and Connecticut. Our family (near New Haven) became a “test family;” they would periodically deliver 2-3 chocolate cakes with icing, and we would eat and rate them. They usually had icing, and I remember that one was “moister” than the other, but they always tasted fabulous and homemade. When you’re 6-7 years old, this feels like the 2nd biggest treat in the world; number 1 is the Good Humor man, obviously. Unfortunately, Entenmann’s cakes & cookies are now made in automated factories with chemicals and lots of dubious ingredients. I stick to my local, family-owned/run Austrian, Italian, and Cuban bakeries.
Sorry for the irrelevant rave; the coffee pods are obviously a branded product, likely produced by another company, and coffee flavors in general are for people who have no concept of good coffee.
@MrNews I recall the Entenmann’s expansion out of Long Island to the greater metro area NY CT NJ. That was late 70s? But then the 80s took me to the capital district of upstate NY, land of Freihofers. Oh glorious Freihofers. And the outlet stores where demented but perfectly delicious yellow cakes with chocolate frosting and those incredible chocolate chip cookies were half price or less! Kinda like meh for baked goods. Alas. No more carbs for us.
@MrNews@screechowl I was born/raised in southern Westchester County. We had the best of both worlds. Not only were both brands sold in our supermarkets, we had outlets for both brands ( and a few others)
@Faffs@screechowl As a kid, I remember savoring the heady aroma from the Stella D’Oro cookie plant along I-95 in the Bronx. I lived & worked in southern Westchester from '87-'95. Lotta good eats in that region: old-school Italian delis…YUM. I musta gained 30 lbs during those 8 years.
They made an agreement to sell Entenmann’s branded coffee in 2007 with “Coffee Holding Company.” (Generic, much?) Their owner, Grupo Bimbo (really!) also owns Thomas’s, Arnold, Freihofer’s, and others.
@samnsara If you look closely at the box and/or follow the Amazon link, you’ll see these are K-Cup 2.0 compatible. Also, I’ve used most of these in my own Keurig (part of a sample pack I bought). So yes, they will fit in a Keurig.
