5 Things to Dunk in Your Coffee

Everyone remembers dunking food in their glass of milk when they were a kid. When you get older, that desire to dunk is still there, only the glass of milk is replaced with a cup of hot coffee or tea. At Absopure, customers of our Absopure Premium Coffee or K-Cup products can enhance their experience with a snack companion that’s perfect for dipping. To help maximize the deliciousness, here are five of the best foods you can dunk in your coffee.

1. Biscotti

Biscotti is one of the most popular foods to dip in your coffee – especially in Italy. In fact, it’s literally designed and baked for dunking in mind. The crunch and density of a good piece of biscotti dipped in a steaming cup of coffee is unmatched. Add a little orange zest, nut and/or melted chocolate onto the biscuit for a more delectable taste!

2. Shortbread

If you like a food that will melt in your mouth after being dipped in coffee, then shortbread is what you’re after. This delightfully rich and buttery biscuit is commonly associated with the holiday season, but its tastiness can be applied year-round. Coming in many different shapes, sizes and flavors, many varieties of shortbread are even made for the sole purpose of dunking in coffee and/tea!

3. Oatmeal Cookie

Nothing brings back old memories like dunking soft, thick, chewy cookies. An oatmeal cookie is the perfect flavor for dunking in your coffee due to its bold taste and propensity to fill you up. These cookies mix best with a nut-flavored coffee. Load your oatmeal cookies with raisins or cinnamon, and you’ll have a tasty new guilty pleasure in no time!

4. Kit-Kat

You may think it’s strange that a candy bar would be a good thing to dunk in your coffee, but Kit-Kats have long been tied to the practice. The crunchy wafers immersed in chocolate mix surprisingly well with most flavors of coffee, and can be snapped off for easy dunking. Once you try it, you’ll never eat this candy the same way again!

5. Almond Horn

A European delight, the almond horn is a densely rich food with the perfect curvature for dunking in your coffee. The cookie is traditionally rolled in almond fragments, lightly roasted and often have one end covered with chocolate. While an almond croissant would crumble under the mighty heat of coffee, the almond horn is much more durable, and packs loads of taste in every bite!
