5 Best coffee accompaniments

coffeeIn line with my semi regular Fantastic 5 on Friday I give you my take on the 5 most fantastic things to accompany your coffee.

Carrot cake.  Don’t think it counts as one of your 5 a day on the fruit and veg stakes but tasty and goes well with the java

Muffins.  Choc chip, blueberry or my own favorite raspberry and white chocolate,  any is good when hitting up the sugar rush between meals

The Oversized cookie.  Once upon a time the simple digestive was an institution to be dipped in a cup of tea, but with coffee shops there seems to be a veritable arms race for who can carry the largest cookie.  Expect pizza style sizes soon

Croissants.  Less choices than with muffins but plain, chocolate filled and my personally preferred option the almond filled are never better than when eaten with a latte.

Chocolate cake.  When enjoying the benefits of one type of bean, why not enjoy the antioxidant benefit of another, the cocoa bean!  Ok I may be clutching at straws for a reason by why not indulge

Runners up include biscotti as favored by many (just not me) or more coffee.  Go on it was a late night and you could do with the extra kick form an extra shot.

Any others that deserve a mention?

    Donuts are quite good with coffee, but only Dunkin’ and Krispy Kreme. These are two of the main reasons I wish to live the other side of the pond.

    A Twix always works well if you bite the ends off the finger and use it as a coffee straw – the chocolate gets all gooey and is delightful. Beware hot fluids though!

    On the continent the preferred coffee accompaniment (at least during breakfast) is a cigarette.

    Flapjacks are good.

    Ciggys are long since gone for me, managed to stop that a while ago and have since invested the extra money wisely in beer.

    I’ve not had a donut in ages, too long actually I think maybe a Boston cream is on the cards…Never tried the Twix straw idea so looks like that will have to be tried too.

    And flapjacks, awesome, well worth a mention, homemade are the best.
