You may have heard a little rumor that I have an unhealthy obsession with Dunkin Donuts iced coffee…

IMAG1439 (450x800)

Listen, I’m not proud of it but there are worse places I could put my lips…

kissing the cup


One of the big reasons I love DD is because they make good iced coffee and even though I live in SoCal – that’s hard to find around here!

Well, Staples heard about my obsession and recently offered to send me a Keurig for the RunEatRepeat Corporate office kitchen!!! (Read: my condo)

keurig office machine

And my life has never been the same. The End.

I am in lalalove with this French Vanilla Keurig cup that’s made to be iced coffee. Genius.

french vanilla iced coffee

You brew it over ice and watch the magic happen. Love.


But of course for you OG coffee drinkers they sent me a pack of the original flavors too – all delicious!!!

Yes, I had to try all the flavors for ‘research purposes’ – I really did it for you. And because I love it.

Added bonus: I drink coffee before long runs on the weekends and like that the Keurig brews one cup FAST and I don’t have to make a whole pot of coffee.

  1. Mindi says

    I add a little sugar and cream, nothing crazy! Coffee is definitely getting me through these finals this week!

  2. Wendi says

    I have mine plain black! That was the first way I ever had it so I just stuck with that! I have never had a Keurig and want one so bad!!

  3. Alison says

    Splenda…bad habit. I will also throw in a splash of milk if i have it on hand. and of course i too LOVE iced coffee!

  4. Liz says

    I love Wawa coffee and their french vanilla creamer. Instead of going there to buy coffee everyday, I buy mini cartons of their french vanilla creamer to put in coffee I make at home. Delicious!

  5. Julie says

    I, like you, suffer from a love of DD coffee.
    “Light and sweet”, all the way!!! (Cream and sugar–can’t any of that artificial mumbo-jumbo)

  6. Lindsey says

    I loooove putting flavored creamer in my coffee! I know it’s not the healthiest coffee choice, but it’s the most delicious way to start my day! Plus I feel like I’m eating dessert with my breakfast so I make good choices the rest of the day :)

  7. says

    I drink DD coffee at home and I put almond milk and splenda in mine. I think it is a travesty that DD does not carry either soy milk or almond milk in their stores! do you think you could talk to them about that?

  8. shan says

    i am currently celebrating the start of iced coffee season*, my favorite time of year! i put coffee ice cubes and skim milk in mine :)

    *clearly i do not live in socal, where it is ALWAYS iced coffee season.

  9. Emily says

    Just a little sugar and some 2% milk! Or sometimes I add hot cocoa mix if I’m in the office.. fake mocha!

  10. Sam says

    Unsweetened vanilla almond breeze or sometimes so delicious coconut milk creamer. Also I broke my keurig so I would love love love this!

  11. Hayley Hansen says

    A pump of sugar free peppermint and a pump of sugar free mocha! It’s the skinniest version of a peppermint mocha.

  12. Leah says

    Cream and splenda. Trying to switch out the splenda for stevia or real sugar but it hasn’t happened yet.

  13. Danielle J @daniruns says

    I just use instant coffee :/ don’t have a real coffee maker. But I usually add hazelnut syrup and milk and it’s pretty yummy.

  14. Cassie B says

    I put half and half, sugar & a little flavored creamer. If I have half and half I usually don’t put much of the other two.

    AND on weekends, maybe a little Kahlua 😉

  15. Tiffany Kaluzny says

    I like my coffee black! sometimes I’ll get some skim milk and/or cinnamon if I’m feeling festive.

  16. Courtney says

    Oh my gosh, I would LOVE a Keurig. I put 2 equals in my coffee. I go back and forth with cream in it but sometimes I want my coffee to just be flavored water consistency, does that even make sense?!

  17. Sarah Bird says

    OMG! I am 25 and just tried iced coffee for the first time at Ragnar Socal. I was the driver and when we got to the 2nd exchange point for van 1 was so sleepy, but there was iced coffee from Starbucks so I thought I would give it a try since you are always talking about how much you love it. I put a little half and half and vanilla syrup in mine and I fell in love! It is now my favorite thing. The only thing is that a daily Starbucks on a college student budget does not work out so well:( I would love to have a Keurig machine. Then I could save money and time before I go out to running practice (i’m a Sole Runner whoop whoop)

  18. Ashley says

    It’s always the same:
    2 oz of Cool Brew coffee concentrate with ice, a splash of skim milk, two packets of Splenda, topped off with water to fill my 24 oz thermos. YUM!

  19. Shari says

    For my morning coffee obsession (read drinks entire pot of coffee), I use a little Splenda and a little sugar free/non-fat vanilla creamer.
    On hot summer days, I use the same combo over ice!
    BTW: LOVE MY DD COFFEE!!!!!!!!!!!
    Pick me!!!!!!!!!!

  20. Samantha. says

    I like my coffee black and plain! Maybe with a packet of splenda on the occasion but it hardly ever needs it!

  21. Jessica says

    I LOVE iced coffee! I usually buy some pre-flavored beans and brew them, then add some skim milk. If I’m feeling fancy, I’ll add some chocolate or vanilla whey protein powder.

  22. says

    I used to get those white chocolate mochas with caramel syrup and whipped cream. SO GOOD. Of course, they are also like 800 calories. Now I get black coffee and put creamer in it. Not quite the same, but I needs me some coffee!!!

    (And sadly, I’m almost out of my Kona coffee….)

  23. Kara says

    Black coffee all the way! Just straight up good roast coffee! And a big NO to flavored coffee. Just plain and simple!

  24. Erica says

    I use one Splenda, a splash of unsweetened Vanilla almond milk, and lately I’ve been adding a little of the Target brand sugar-free vanilla or caramel syrup.

  25. Laura says

    Oatmeal…well technically I put coffee in my oats with some chocolate protein powder. Hello mocha oats! I love iced coffee with almond milk as well :)

  26. Margaret says

    I try to just use chocolate almond milk and a little bit of sugar. But I’m a sucker for the peppermint mocha creamer at Christmas time!

  27. Michelle says

    I have an unhealthy obsession with coconut creamer. So much so, I use a measuring spoon or I would drink it straight!

  28. sophie says

    I’ve actually trained myself to drink (good) coffee black. With the not so tasty coffees I usually put some stevia & fat free milk or unsweetened vanilla almond milk.

  29. Steve says

    Most of the time, I only put more coffee in my coffee. Rarely some cream (family asks me if I’ve been kidnapped and replaced by a double when I do that). And DD rocks.

  30. Jennifer L says

    A little milk (whatever I have, cow’s or almond), a couple drops vanilla extract, and cinnamon…. on special occasions I blend (on froth) a cup with 1/2-1 tbsp butter and cinnamon… it’s delicious, trust me.

  31. Sage says

    Omg I would love a Keurig! Im in law school and getting quick and easy caffeine jolt would sure help the late nights! I usually just do a pinch of sugar and a dash of cinnamon (really good!)

  32. Steph says

    depends on the day! the rough sleepy days… black. otherwise i’m a sucker for hazelnut and french vanilla creamers

  33. elizabeth says

    sweet-n-low, soy milk, vanilla creamer, sit overnight in frig. drink chilled, oh my, it is sooooooooooo good

  34. Diana H says

    I’m boring, just splenda and nonfat milk for me, but I love it. I’d love to win this Keurig, it looks awesome!

  35. Misty says

    Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk and Stevia, yum! I can’t do regular milk in coffee anymore – it doesn’t taste right now that I’m used to the alternative.

  36. says

    I stir in a teaspoon of raw Maca Powder for added “energy, balance, and vitality!” Mixing in this Incan superfood with my favorite South American beverage powers me through the day.

  37. Shannon in Tustin says

    Half and half. only. the. real. stuff.

    I’ve never tried Keurig iced coffees. But I always use my Keurig on long-run mornings. I can have a little bit without making a whole pot.

    What an outstanding giveaway! And you are such a giver to research for this outstanding cause. 😉

  38. Abbie says

    I’ve started including liquid stevia in my coffee – it adds just the right amount of sweetness and makes it quite delicious!

  39. Meg says

    A packet of raw sugar with almond or skim milk. Marshmallows or whipped cream on days that necessitate a little whimsy.

  40. Kris says

    For iced coffee, a little bit of non-fat milk & I’m good to go. Otherwise, hot coffee is black & strong.

  41. Kelsey Yoki says

    I’m the tea drinker in my home, and usually add soy or coconut milk/creamer. My boyfriend is the coffee drinker, and puts in whole milk + sugar, or heavy whipping cream if we have it (I know, he’s crazy!).

  42. says

    Depends. For iced coffee , my absolute favorite is the Almond Breeze almond/coconut milk, and lots of it, and maybe a little vanilla syrup.

    For hot coffee, I like a packet of Stevia and a pile of 2% milk.

    Honestly, though, I just like coffee 😉

  43. Amber says

    Mmmm I like my coffee strong and black. Only time I do differently is when I have my once a week Starbucks. Then anything goes. :)

  44. MiaMia says

    I need mine to be strong enough to put hair on my chest with a touch of cream and a couple truvias! Mmmm!

  45. Sierra wright says

    I have wanted a keurig 4 ever! Unfortunately I have been gifted every brand except it so now I feel like I can’t go buy on. I want the ker because like you, I am obsessesed with iced coffee and they have the beat flavors! I’m loyal to Carmel macchiato creamer

  46. Amy says

    I don’t drink coffee regularly, but I love the iced caramel macchiato from Starbucks! That iced vanilla coffee that you made sounds good!

  47. Tina says

    I use just a splash of half & half with 2-3 sweet & lows, along with a ton of ice in my french vanilla DD coffee.

  48. Lea Ann says

    In hot coffee I put cream. In iced coffee I love
    sugar free vanila syrup and a little cream or milk. Yum!

  49. Autumn R says

    Vanilla ice cream if I have any. Or my new favorite thing is condensed milk like they put in Vietnamese coffee! So yummy

  50. Jessica says

    Almond milk and splenda…and on special occassions I will squirt in a little bit of white chocolate syrup. YUM!

  51. Daphne Garcia says

    Cinnamon is a staple in my coffee whether I’m drinking it black before my run or enjoying it with all the goodness of creamer before I set off to work!

  52. says


    I usually drink it black with half a packet of Sweet N’ Low in it. I particularly love flavored coffee, but I cannot stand the flavor syrups. I like the coffee to be flavored before it’s brewed. YUM!!

  53. says

    Can’t live without at least 2 cups every morning… I love mine with chocolate milk! Makes it creamy and sweet enough to replace splenda/sugar, too!

  54. says

    If I’m not drinking lattes from SB’s, then I make my coffee with milk, sugar (real not fake!), and a dash of cinnamon! A Keurig would be amazing!

  55. Marisa says

    Cream and sweetener…and if I’m out, I like to try flavored syrups. I had a great coconut almond flavored coffee last time I was in Taos!

  56. Morgan says

    Unsweetened vanilla Silk Almond milk, better stevia French vanilla drops! And only in Green Mountain Kcups :) usually French Vanilla or Caramel Vanilla Cream. Love my coffee!!

  57. says

    I use instant coffee at home (because I grew up on it) and use So Delicious French Vanilla creamer, BUT when I go to DD for iced coffee (because it’s the only iced I’ll drink) I get a caramel iced with skim milk and splenda. And it’s gotdamn deevine.

  58. julie says

    I love coffee with splenda, creamer and sugar free caramel or coocnut syrup. super delicious and a great pick-me-up!!

    • Sherry says

      So much love for a good 8oz. “cup ‘o Joe” (usually a Colombian blend) with a little bit of Kal Stevia and splash of good old half & half! <3

  59. Laura says

    i put soy milk in my coffee…..delicious! i hope i win! it would be the happiest day of my life….jk. but really, i never win! :)

  60. says

    I drink my coffee black… whenever I order a black iced coffee at McDonalds they’re like “you don’t want ANNNNY flavoring or cream??!! ARE YOU SURE?” “Yes, yes I’m sure…” “Uh, oookaaaay…”

  61. ashley says

    splenda and cream – although I think I am in need of a new coffee maker, mine has had an “off” taste for a couple weeks!

  62. Alexandra says

    I usually put in a tablespoon of half and half. I used to drink it all black but now the thought of it makes me gag

  63. Chanelle says

    Half and half all the way, baby. Or I like iced coffee with soy and one Splenda if I’m treating myself to S-bux.

  64. Lindsay says

    I put almond milk and stevia in my coffee. I would absolutely love a Keurig as it would save me so much time in the am!

  65. abby r says

    technically i don’t drink coffee so nothing but keurigs have teas ans hot chocolates! and i could offer weekend guests coffee avoiding waiting until the small town coffee shop opens!

  66. Stevie says

    I like to shake things up depending on my mood! Sometimes I add some flavored creamer, sometimes I leave it black, or I’ll add a little bit of skim milk!

  67. says

    I enjoy my cup of Joe Mexican style (lol) I shot of expresso with Chocolate Abulita ((comes in a new handy dandy powder now) I love this warm fuzzy feeling inside I get everytime I drink my cup of Joe or should I say Jose. O grew drinking it so now with coffee just adds the icing on cake.

  68. says

    I like it black! Monica – Portola Coffee Lab in Costa Mesa has the best iced coffee !! Go there! I also discovered a company called seaworth coffee and they are based in costa mesa and sell their cold brewed iced coffee at stores around the area including Haute Cakes Cafe in Newport

  69. Stacey says

    Sadly, I learned that Splenda & truvia irritate my stomach so I’m back with plain ol’ sugar and half & half now!

  70. Jennifer S says

    I get French Vanilla flavored coffee and add cream and splenda or sugar at home… Dunkin Donuts French Vanilla iced coffee on my way to work – mmmm!

  71. Laura E. says

    Thanks for the opportunity! I have to add milk or some sort of creamer. French vanilla or hazelnut are my favorites!

  72. says

    Before I go to work and while I study for my finals I have some decaf coffee with 1/8th cup of canned coconut milk topped with cinnamon and nutmeg. It is amazing and keeps me full for a couple hours before breakfast at work.

  73. Bree ltc says

    Almond milk – Vanilla or chocolate, and a hit of creamer just because. Love Love Love coffee, by the cup(s) or the pot! :)

  74. Emily says

    I cannot function without my morning coffee!! I put chocolate whey protein powder in my coffee. Tastes mocha-y and helps keep me full longer!

  75. says

    I put lots of milk! And some stevia too. Love my coffee light and sweet. Dunkin donuts would seriously lose money if I won this thing!

  76. Gershona Holmes says

    I drink mine black most with stevia but sometimes with added almond milk. thanks for the giveaway. winnining would be awesome.

  77. Jayne says

    I have an undying love for coffee. I drink about 7-8 cups a day. Generally I use one sweetner and flavoured creamer and whatever milk I have on hand so I use less creamer. which means right now I’m using chocolate milk. I’m fueled by coffee and chocolate milk.

  78. Helen C says

    I add a little sugar-free vanilla creamer, because life is always a little easier to enjoy with a dash of vanilla :)

  79. Isis says

    I love to get hazelnut flavored coffee and put almond milk in it! It’s delicious and makes my taste buds very happy!

  80. Wendi Warner says

    I usually put unsweetened almond milk, truvia, and a little splash of torani sugar free vanilla and caramel syrups in my daily cup o joe…oh yum!

  81. Holly says

    I’m a recent convert to iced coffee … used to hate it and now I LOVE IT. Just a splash of cream for me!

  82. Erin says

    A little almond milk and some splenda (but if it’s from DD, then skim milk b/c they don’t have almond milk). I haven’t had my first DD iced coffee of the season yet, can’t wait until it warms up!

  83. Tricia says

    Lately I’ve been on an Almond Milk kick. Sometimes I like to add a little sugar free gingerbread syrup.

  84. Dede Owens says

    I’ll be totally honest, I drink my coffee black. I used to put in non-dairy creamer, but in an effort to cut out even a few calories, I stopped. Now, I enjoy the finest coffees that I can afford… black.

  85. says

    I used to use coffee creamer until I realized how much sugar and calories I was unknowingly adding! Now I use either chocolate hazelnut milk or almond/coconut blend milk. Yum!

  86. Kaelin says

    I like a bit of creamer in my coffee. It’s my one thing that I can’t seem to break with a healthier substitute.

  87. says

    Ahhh! Best gift/giveaway ever!!

    I usually put a splash of half/half and a little Splenda in my iced coffee. I actually gave up coffee to re-set my body to actually respond to caffeine when I am driving cross country in a few weeks. Hoping it works!

  88. Lauren C. says

    I drink hot coffee black. I like iced coffee with a splash of french vanilla creamer. I would love to win this! My Keurig just broke and I am a die hard fan!

  89. Bonnie says

    I’m mildly obsessed with unsweetened almond milk and real maple syrup in my coffee…Sweetened almond milk is ~not~ the same!

  90. Megan K. says

    Zilch. I don’t drink coffee, but my favorite running partner is as obsessed as you with Dunkin Iced Coffee and she would love me forever if I gave her this. She is way faster than me but gets up at ridiculous hours to run at my pace with me. Maybe I should start drinking coffee. Is that your speedy secret? Lol

  91. Jessie says

    I take my coffee tall, dark, with some added French vanilla creamer & sugar. I am getting exciting just talking about it…. anyway. Yum.

  92. Kate says

    In the AM, I drink it straight up. Later in the day, I add non-fat milk and maybe even a pump of mocha if I am feeling wild and crazy.

  93. Bachtuyet Le says

    Silk Vanilla soymilk for my iced coffees. For hot coffee, condensed milk or Coffee mate sweet Italian cream!

  94. Mandi P says

    Rum Chata if you don’t know what is it check it out. It’s like the milk left in your cereal bowl after eating cinnamon toast crunch. It’s is also a great bedtime sleepy time drink. Just warm up some water & add a shot of Rum Chata and smooth sailing.

  95. Liz says

    I want that Keurig!!! I put the usual milk & creamer in my coffee M-F, but my FAVORITE thing to put in coffee is BAILEYS IRISH CREAM. YUUUUUM!

  96. Erin says

    Oh, black, absolutely. I have entertained the idea of bulletproof coffee… which is grass-fed butter added to black coffee. It kind of freaks me out, but it’s Paleo. Maybe sometime, but, oh lawd, I do love my black coffee!

  97. Phebe says

    I love my morning coffee with a little bit of cream and sometimes I’ll stir in a spoonful of hot cocoa mix if I’m going for a “mocha”. That coffee maker looks awesome – Nice giveaway!

  98. Jessica says

    I usually just add a little milk and Splenda, but my FAVORITE thing to add is that horribly unhealthy pumpkin spice Coffeemate creamer. Thank goodness they don’t sell it year round!

  99. says

    When it’s DD, I take it regulah. At home, whatever flavored creamer is in the fridge, which right now is Italian Sweet Cream.

  100. Katie Russell says

    I’m pretty much a purest when it comes to my coffee…just a half packet of stevia in the raw. However, when I have iced coffee, I love putting some vanilla almond milk in. I bought the dark chocolate flavored one once and was putting in my iced coffee all week…AMAZING!

  101. says

    I’m not a huge coffee drinker but I love those machines!
    I actually have hot chocolate ones but no machine to use them with…
    don’t ask lol.
    I’d use it mainly for my tea obsession.
    I put honey and lemon and cinnamon in my tea :)

  102. Ashley says

    I usually put stevia drops and skim milk in my coffee, but sometimes I go crazy and use deliciously flavored creamers.

  103. Pam says

    I am a Dunkin coffee addict! So much so that thy recognize my voice in the drive thru ;o). When I make my coffee at home, I put in one vanilla creamer, a healthy splash of milk, and one Splenda packet.

  104. Christine says

    Organic half and half. I’ve been wanting a Keurig for my office so I can feed my coffee addiction during the work day :)

  105. Bridgette W. says

    I always add a half packet of Nestlé hot chocolate mix to my coffee to make a poor man’s mocha.

  106. Brandy says

    Oh gosh. I’ve always wanted one! I put cream and sugar in my coffee. I like it iced or hot. I also like making tea with them.

  107. Jeanette says

    I’m a coffee addict in denial :-) and can drink it in any, cold, cream no cream, with or without sugar…I just have to have my coffee!

  108. Carly says

    In a perfect world, almond milk with Splenda and loads of cinnamon.
    I’m in the middle of exams, so lately my coffee is iced, large and in charge to get it down as quickly as humanly possible and get me through the day!

  109. Anna says

    I have a tbsp of half and half in each cup of my french press coffee…when I have it iced I like it with almond milk or plain old nonfat milk.
