It's a holiday somewhere

Someone gifted me recently with a whole bagful of assorted coffees — an offering always certain to warm the cockles of my heart. If indeed my heart has cockles. Or if my...

Well, never mind.

Anyway, today I'm sampling a rather tasty flavored blend called Holiday Cheer, produced by Gloria Jean's Gourmet Coffees. This seasonal variety marries a full-bodied Arabica roast with hints of cinnamon and buttered rum. (I might enjoy it even better if the flavoring was toned down just a smidge, but that would be nitpicking.)

As I've just discovered, Gloria Jean's Holiday Cheer drinks as nicely with a bagel as it does with a sticky bun. According to the package, Gloria Jean's Holiday Cheer is a kosher product. So I suppose Hanukkah might be one of the holidays for which it would be appropriate to brew a pot.

Or even St. Anthony's Day, which today happens to be. All I know about St. Anthony is that he is the patron saint of herpes. Seriously. (I guess old Tony must have been close to the tail end of the line when they handed out patronages.) He was also Egyptian, which makes sense — I might have figured they'd assign the herpes job to the African guy.

Some things never change.
