Dolce Gusto Warms My Heart!

First of all, thank you for all of the positive comments on my last post.   I am really excited to get back into blogging once again and hopefully I can keep up with it better.

Back in September, Allison invited me and some other awesome Cleveland bloggers to Greenhouse Tavern for Nescaf√©'s Cleveland Foodie Feed Up to introduce their Dolce Gusto product line.  We also were treated to a demo by Chef Sawyer and enjoyed some of my GHT favorites, including the chicken wing confit.

Yum!
The Dolce Gusto product line offers various single cup coffee machines and a wide variety of capsule flavors.  As a thank you for attending the Foodie Feed Up, I was given the Piccolo machine and two boxes of capsules.  Personally, I love the cappuccino and have made myself my own pumpkin spiced treats this fall.  The single cup option is wonderful for a a little caffeine pick me up when you do not want to make a regular pot of coffee.  Also, with the holiday season, Dolce Gusto machines make great gifts.  Aside from searching the stores and ordering on line, Christmas will come a little early for one lucky Hungry in Cleveland reader!  I was given one Piccolo machine to give away.  The deadline to enter is Sunday at 11:59 p.m.  Winner will be announced Monday, November 28.  There are two ways to enter.

1. Comment on this post telling me your favorite holiday coffee drink.
2. Tweet the following "@HungryInCLE and @DolceGustoUS warm my heart!  I want to win a Piccolo here: http://bit.ly/tT5YCP"

Win me!
Also, please remember I will be running 26.2 miles in Disney World a member of the American Liver Foundation's Liver Life Challenge team!  Please help me achieve one of my two goals!

Until next time...follow your heart, fulfill your hunger!

**Disclaimer: I was invited to attend the Cleveland Foodie Feed Up by Allison in September.  At this event I was given a Piccolo Dolce Gusto machine to take home.  Later, Allison reached out to me to give one away here.**

  18. My favorite holiday drink is the pumpkin spice latte, but I usually drink home-brewed German coffee (bought from Hansa Haus just down the street from the West Side Market - Jacobs Kronung is my first choice, but they are all good) with Coffeemate Peppermint Mocha creamer.
