Love meeting friends at The Blend & co., one of the awesome spots for great beverage and tasty-nibbles in downtown Burlington.
This morning was no exception.
Not a sponsored post.
Consider this blog a PSA.
Because, if you like a little heat in your life, you should know about a couple of things available on their menu.
Pictured above is the Killer Bee latte, a delightful mix of espresso, milk (of course) and then honey, cinnamon and cayenne pepper (in my cup – which, by the way, you get a discount when you bring your own cup).
I learned about this a few months ago, when I was hemming-and-hawing over the Mexican Mocha they have listed on the main menu. I don’t really like chocolate and espresso together…unless we’re talking about a chocolate covered espresso bean. Then, I’m all-in! I was offered a Killer Bee as an alternative…adding honey along with awesome spices to magic beans?!
Ah. Yes, please!
I loved getting a look at their Fall Menu (you can check it out on my Facebook Page post), and did a little jig when I saw my new fave sweet and spicy latte…in black and white, looking all official on their laminated menu card at the counter.
They’re also adverting items like a Rosemary Brown Sugar latte and a Candy Apple Affogato.
And while I am used to their Smoothie Bowls and Chia Pudding options, I had NO IDEA they also offered items like Avocado Toast!
A fellow partaker had this tasty-delight with his morning coffee. It was Avocado Toast with hummus, chia seeds and (extra) cayenne.
Truly, that might have been a little too spicy for me, this morning (or any, for that matter), but it did look good, and he certainly enjoyed it.
So, have you been to The Blend & co. lately?
If you’re looking to shake things up and try something new this season, I would definitely recommend it!
