Ok so I admit it I am sitting here drinking a hot cup of Swiss Miss hot chocolate, topped with some peppermint flavored marshmallows that was made in my Keuirg but in my defense they were a Christmas present.
But as I sit here working away on a few blog posts and drinking this yummy warm drink I can’t help but to think….. have we become that lazy of a society that boiling a pot of hot water, pouring the powder packet of hot chocolate mix, then adding the hot water and stirring become to much for us? Are we that lazy that we would rather pop a plastic cup into a machine and have it do the hard work for us?
Now I am not saying that anyone who uses the Swiss Miss K-cups is lazy, but for a company to make something that is already super easy to make “easier” there has to be a need for it.
The price tag on this box shocks me to, on Amazon it is $16 for a 16 count pack!!! That is $1 per cup! You can get the box that you make the “old fashion way” for a buck or 2 and there is enough in there to make 10 cups!! I don’t taste any difference with the K-Cup version to the packet one, but maybe that is just me.
Maybe I am missing something that is cool with the Swiss Miss K-cups, but $16 for something that I can get the equivalent of for $4 seems lazy and like a waste.
**Disclaimer: I am in NO WAY saying those who use Swiss Miss K Cups is lazy, heck I use my Keurig for Coffee every single day 😉 For me its much easier to use the k-cups and NOT have coffee grounds in my coffee then to have to sip around them 🙂
