Ah that’s a bummer! I was hanging on to hope that the Entenmann’s was going to be better than the Harry & David that I got last year. It was weakest most watered down coffee I’d ever tasted! Even opening them up and dumping them into a regular (non Keurig) coffee maker didn’t make much of a difference. It’s just not my kind of coffee!
If you can’t stand the taste of artificial sweeteners, note that the Entenmann’s Hot Chocolate k-cups contain aspartame and acesulfame-K. (Most if not all k-cup hot cocoa will have some artificial sweetener, because they’re too small to contain enough real sugar for the expected sweetness)
@jnicholson0619@sammydog01 true but it’s so much more convenient with the machine heating up the water. I do iced tea a lot. Snapple used to make kcups with the tea already sweetened. Sadly I cannot find them anymore.
@ironcheftoni@jnicholson0619@sammydog01 I have an In-Sink-erator hot water dispenser, which has a 2/3 gallon tank of 191 degree filtered water instantly available. It’s the best thing in my kitchen, for drinks, cooking and clean-up.
Given the number of times I have encountered coffee makers that had clearly been subjected to the gross stupidity of having cold, already-brewed coffee poured back into them to reheat, rendering them forever worse than useless for producing hot water to brew tea or make cocoa, I have little doubt that trying to use a Keurig to make either tea or cocoa very likely would fail for the same reason in any location where you’re not the only one using the machine.
@goldnectar daughter got me a stainless reusable cup with a hinged lid. Dump the used grounds and use a used toothbrush to clean the fine strainer holes. 30 sec to clean, 11 years old, no plastic and any coffee I want.
Well, I tried some at work - the hot chocolate ones specifically. They taste a little watery, and that’s with using 6oz water per cup instead of the default 8oz. Maybe I should go to 4oz, but… at that point I may as well have just bought a box of Swiss Miss instead.
Flavor’s okay, just… it doesn’t go as far as I would have hoped, I guess?
