Congrats Colleen, you are going to LOVE this!!

Thank you to everyone who entered!


I am soooo over this past week.

The whole internet seems to be one giant BLAAAAH

So, cheer up.  I have a giveaway!  YAY!

That’s right, my very first one.

If you follow me on Twitter, then you’ve probably seen my tweets about Tassimo Canada giving away free Tassimo machines.  If you thought it was yet another internet hoax, you guessed wrong.  Mine was delivered by a very nice FedEx driver this morning.

Bil and I have been Tassimo die-hards for the past few years.   Take away my microwave, but lay a finger on my Tassimo and I will seriously take you out.  So went the newest model came out, we went out and bought it immediately.  Again, very happy with our purchase.

Fast forward to a few weeks ago and the Tassimo Canada giveaway.  I contacted them and said “Hey, I already have a Tassimo, but I’d love one to give away to my awesome blog readers!  So, can I have one?”.  They came back with “Is it a contest?”… huh? what? nope.  “Are you going to use it to collect information from your readers?”…. ahhh, a negative on that one too.  “Then go for it”.

Which means one of you lucky people is getting a shiny new Tassimo coffee system!!  But it’s not just coffee.  Espresso, hot chocolate, tea, lattes, cappuccino, chi tea lattes, the list goes on.  I love it for company.  Everyone gets exactly what they want.

Tassimo 300x270 Drama Sucks So Im Giving Away StuffBut the winner doesn’t just get a Tassimo machine.  Oh no, that would never do.  You also get 9 packages of T Discs to start you off:

  • STARBUCKS® House Blend
  • NABOB 100% Colombian
  • NABOB Espresso
  • NABOB Cappuccino
  • NABOB Latte
  • NABOB Breakfast Blend
  • MAXWELL HOUSE Decaffeinated
  • TWININGS Chai Tea Latte
  • TWININGS Green Tea

These aren’t ‘sampler packs’ either.  They are the full size packages you buy in the store.

So now the good part – How to win.

Let’s keep this simple, because my brain is sort of fried this week.

Head over to Tassimo and visit their Recipe page and tell me what recipe you’d most like to try in the comments below.  One comment per person.

That’s it.  Easy.

The winner will be drawn using a Random Number Generator.  Entries close Friday, October 23, 2009 at 7pm MST

Ready?  Go!

    Omg, this is the most amazing giveaway ever! We are huge coffee drinkers at my house. I would make dreamy cappuccinos or the velvety chocolate mocha every single day :)

  • Vixen says:

    *Jumping up and down* (sorta, well making the motions of jumping anyway). I have always, always wanted one of these anyway, but then you sent me to the recipe page and I simply must try the Green Tea and Mint Summer Punch. Must.

    Hey, I was depressed this weekend too, so I also decided to have a giveaway. Cheer yourself up and go enter. It could be fun!

  • Cara says:

    I am so on this. Seriously the 1st drink I’d make would be the white chocolate cappucino. Because maybe, just maybe, it would satisfy my urge for Starbucks.

  • Nanette says:

    Ohhhh, fun!

    The London Fog Tea sounds divine!

  • Sara says:

  • Karen says:

    Say wha??? I’m soo excited about this Jenn! I was suffering some serious Tassimo envy after hearing Maria (Boredmommy)got one this week. So YAY! I LOVE that it can make desserts! As for a favorite recipe, I’m going with the Irish Cream Coffee. Classic and contains coffee and booze :)

  • drlori71 says:

    I know my choice sounds like it’s coming from a 10 year old & I may be ridiculed for it, but I’d like a candy bar hot chocolate. Mmmmm!

  • Heather says:

    I totally would make the coffee toffee cappuccino AND make the little fancy snowflake.
    No I wouldn’t. I’d just be happy to get a decent cup of coffee (you know, BEFORE the child awakens!!!). Sigh. YUM!
    .-= Heather´s last blog ..Left Field =-.

  • Man. you are awesome.I cried tears of joy when I saw the candy bar hot chocolate. Ive never heard of Tassimo as Im not a huge coffee drinker. I am, however, a HUGE hot chocolate drinker. The fact that this machine makes FRESH BREWED HOT CHOCOLATE makes me want one SOO badly. yum!
    .-= Kat @DrawingCowboys´s last blog ..Tagged =-.

  • Kim says:

    OMG !! Nom nom nom on the hot chocolate love !! And all of them !! I need one because all I need is enough for me now !!

    But alas, I don’t live in Canada…booo!!!

    Good luck to yall !! ;)

  • OMG talk about heaven! My husbadn and I love coffee. We were so jealous this past thanksgiving weekend when his sisters all brought out their capachino machines and had a latte off! Although…we did get to taste some very nommy coffees!

    I would love to try the candy bar hot chocolate. What can I say? Im a equal opportunity lover between coffee and chocolate!

  • Chibi Jeebs says:

    I don’t know how you could possibly expect us to narrow it down to just one! I’m going to go with the peppermint hot chocolate. Yum!

  • I would totally take down a mug, or three, of the Candy Bar Hot Chocolate. However, truth be told, I might have to spike it with a lil’ Bailey’s or the such…

  • Mandi Bone says:

    The candy bar hot chocolate sounds yummy.

  • Kim says:

    I’m baccckk !!

    And I am all over the Irish Cream Coffee. That seems like a perfect ending to a nice Sunday brunch while the leaves are falling and the chill is coming on !

    And Baileys? Uhhmmm. Yumyumyum.
    .-= Kim´s last blog ..Blogging, Integrity and Truth… =-.

  • April says:

    Wait…they have RECIPES? For a coffee maker? Oh I’m totally in love. But I can only pick one? Hmmm…how about the green tea with mint, or the indulgent granita. Now, wait…the candy bar hot chocolate! Crap…scratch that. I wanna try the white chocolate ‘cino.

    P.S. I agree…drama sucks and I’m bored with all of it already.

  • arosefull says:

    Definimundo the peppermint hot chocolate! At least where I live, it’s beginning to look a lot like… :)

  • Let me just tell you my coffee maker sucks! I have been getting grounds in my cup for the past two weeks.
    The peppermint hot chocolate sounds divine!
    .-= Midwest Mommy´s last blog ..So I got an email… =-.

  • Kate says:

    This is so the best way to get over the dramas. You are my favourite, did you know? Well, now you do!

    Anyhoo. I would be all over the Peppermint Hot Chocolate. Mmmmmmm… mint and chocolate together is one of the best combos since peanut butter and chocolate, or caramel and chocolate…

    I think I might have a problem with chocolate. Not that I keep M&Ms within reach at all times, including a large pill bottle that used to contain the crazy pills full of ‘em in my purse. Who does that shit?!? Yeah, that would be me.

    Love ya, talk soon.

  • Emily B. says:

    Wow! I’m a hardcore hot drink lover and I’ve always wanted one of these… I’d be all over the Petite Mocha Paradise (YUM!). It sounds pretty easy to make, too.
    .-= Emily B.´s last blog ..Good morning… =-.

  • Laura says:

    Candy Bar Hot Chocolate, for those PMS days :)

  • Jonnie H says:

    I would love to try the Dreamy Cappaccino

  • Anne-Marie Tvete says:

    Coffee Toffee Cappuccino sounds scrumptious!

  • Allyson/@HBMomof2 says:

    So cool. Saw your tweets and wondered how much they were paying you. Ha! I loved the Velvety Chocolate Mocha, but without whipped cream, because every time I look at it, it just seems liked whipped fat…just like mayonnaise. I will have my mocha with chocolate, thank you. But whoever mentioned Bailey’s may be on to something.

    And I am saving the drama for that other mama. Drama – Just say no.

  • Smug Married says:

    I have the old model and I have to agree that it is the best coffee maker we have ever had. It is perfect for company since everyone wants something different. In looking at the website, I think that the Latte Macchiato would be very cool if you could pull it off without giving up and mixing all the parts together!!

  • melissa says:

    It’s a toss up for me between the Dreamy Cappaccino & the White Chocolate Cappuccino.

    But I’m going to have to say the sound of a White Chocolate Cappuccino makes me want to curl up by a window on a snowy day next to the fireplace. If I had a Tassimo this would def be a vision come true. Just have to get me a fireplace.

  • PsychMamma says:

    I think the Peppermint Hot Chocolate & Zesty Hot Chocolate look awesome! Thanks for the chance to enter!
    .-= PsychMamma´s last blog ..Embracing Holland =-.

  • Jenn says:

    My hubby was just asking for one of those to make iced tea! And that is definitely the first thing I’d make since he asked me so nicely the other day.

  • Amanda says:

    Ooh ooh – let me win!
    My favorite ? Zesty Hot Chocolate

    It would help cure my fetish towards those damn hot truffles at the chocolate store.

    Thinking of you today.

  • Angi says:

    Pick Me, Pick Me! I want one! First I will make the candy bar hot chocolate…because yum. Then I will make the desserts, all three at one time, then after that the irish coffee because I’ll need more caffeine to balance out the sugar. WOOHOO!!!! I’m flyin’ already and I haven’t even tried it out yet!


    P.S. Giveaways are so much better than drama! Love you!

    Mmmm… I would LOVE to make an Espresso Float. Right now!

  • Lu says:

    I want one of these SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO bad. I would def. go for peppermint hot chocolate first b/c it is my fav for the seasons coming up. Also I would invent my own by putting Nutella in the bottom of the cup and letting one of the cofees brew over it, thus making Nutella coffee and then I would have an orgasm.

  • Melissa Palmer says:

    The Granits looks good to me. Cold, desserty thing filled with caffine – PERFECT!

  • Diane says:

    Since I’m in FL, just about ANY of the cold recipes appeal to me. I think the Green Tea and Mint Summer Punch sounds the most intriguing. Boo drama; Yay giveaways!

  • Katie R says:

    OMG, I want that so bad! It would make everyday better! Like today, I could have really gone for a latte break when 2 one years olds were following my every move screaming in agony over their new teeth. Maybe I could have hidden in the bedroom with it.

    And Coffee Toffee Cappuccino would be my pic for sure. Mmmmm….

  • Dawana says:

    I would try the Latte Macchiato. I am an espresso whore- I can’t get enough. Yum. I hope I win.

  • Chantel says:

    Great giveaway Jenn. My coffee machine broke awhile back so this would be heaven! The Candy Bar Hot Chocolate sounds soooo good. Or the Peppermint Hot Chocolate. YUM!!

  • Deidra23 says:

    MMMmmmm White chocolate cappucino sounds awesome http://www.tassimo.ca/tassimo/page?siteid=tassimo-prd&locale=caen1&PagecRef=606

    I might add booze though.
