Starbucks Coffee and Walmart Muffins #DeliciousPairings for Breakfast

School and work schedules often keep up apart for breakfast as an entire family. Come weekend time when errands need be done and we’re all going in different directions it doesn’t often get any better.

But Rob and I make it a point to stop for a few moments for a quick breakfast and talk about what to expect for the day. It isn’t fancy but it’s a time we set aside because it’s important to connect and get on the same page about the family happenings.


Coffee is our go-to. Anything else is just extra. But paired with a perfectly sweetened Banana Nut Muffin makes the experience so much better. The Starbucks House (Medium) Blend was rich with slight bitterness like I expected. Pairing it a Walmart Banana Nut Muffin brought out hints of nuts and fresh sweetness. I’m not a coffee and donut kinda person, I think the overt sweetness of a sugar glaze throws off the taste of coffee but this was a much better match, something I can get used to.

Shopping at Walmart is usually very easy. Seeing the #DeliciousPairings sign above the baked goods is a great way to learn what coffee blend goes with which bakery item. As you can see the display is directly above the danish and donuts. I went searching for muffins. I found a sugar free and regular version of their Banana Nut Muffins but that was the only flavor. I wanted to try the Blueberry Muffins also but there were none to be found.


I did find these Apple Pastry Bites but I’m the only apple filling fan in the house, that means I would’ve had to eat them all on my own. I skipped it.

The brewing process was wonderful. I could smell it as I stepped out of my bedroom. It’s a calming effect, knowing I’m just minutes away from a hot cup of coffee even though there are also kids and dogs waiting for breakfast so they can head off to school. I need to invest in a really good travel mug so I can take my coffee to go because stopping at random places never beats what is served at home since we already brew Starbucks Breakfast Blend and Thanksgiving Blend when it is in season.

Starbucks can be found at many retailers but visiting your local Walmart to shop will give you a little education about the best flavor matches for the coffee blends.

  1. I am not a coffee drinker – and I don’t love bananas – but you make this pairing sound AMAZING! You should definitely keep banana nut muffins on hand for weekends at your house!

    As a mom, I’m the one who is preparing all the needs of my husband and my kids. In their meals, I do always make sure that it is healthy for them to eat so that their body could able to perform well also on their daily activities.

  3. You are making me hungry!

  4. Oooh I do love coffee, Starbucks and muffins!!! 🙂

  5. Wow, Starbuck’s sure has changed. Last time I went in there (years ago) it was just coffee. I didn’t know they had all those breakfast goodies too.

  6. Yum, I’m hungry and I’ve already had breakfast. I like that you two take the time to talk about things during breakfast. 🙂

    Man, your Walmart had a way better bakery case than mine did! This early morning moments are great, aren’t they?

    • Believe it or not we bought the last 4 pack of banana nut muffins that morning. I would have been ticked off if they were out too. LOL.

  8. I seriously LOVE Starbucks! I’ve even found grain-free treats at the one near my house.

    • Starbucks coffee is awesome and it’s even more awesome when I can drink it in my living room while watching TV in the morning. LOL.

  9. Well darn on having no blueberry muffins. I could really use a Starbucks right now!

  10. Now THAT Looks like a good breakfast!!!


    • It was pretty good. I need to get some more of those muffins because we still have the Starbucks but we are fresh out of those tasty muffins.

  11. You guys have made me ridiculously hungry. Muffins are a weakness. ARGHHHH! 🙂

  12. I did the same shop and I thought the combination of the muffins and coffee was delicious!

  13. Those muffins look so good. I’ve had to remove carbs from my diet, which is so sad 🙁 At least I still have coffee. I love how Walmart shows the pairing together so you know what coffee to serve with a treat. Love it when companies take the guess work out of entertaining.

    • I agree with you 100% and I am sorry about the no carbs. Not that I eat a lot of carbs but I did eat two of those muffins. LOL. They were so good and tasted so much better with that Starbucks coffee.

  14. There are few things better than Starbucks and muffins for breakfast! Walmart really does have it all!

  15. Looks like a great way to spend the morning slowing down with the family.
