If your great grandmother didn't eat or drink it, I'd consider it not to be something a caveman ate or drank either. Make some pour-over coffee and step off the consumer bandwagon. And caramel flavoring? Seriously? Maybe you need to do a little research on what this lifestyle and way of eating/living is all about. Best of luck.

Why would you waste money on K-cups? Buy a real coffee maker, a real coffee grinder, and real coffee. All K-cups do is enrich the manufacturer and pollute the environment with more plastic.

All you get out of it is a pain in the wallet, stale, low quality coffee that ran through plastic that may leech plasticizers into your coffee, and in this case a dose of artificial flavor and/or aroma.

Do the math.

The amount you pay per cup for a pound of coffee is something like 1/2 what you pay per K-cup.

@borofergie I think you misunderstood my question. I am buying at home use K-Cups. Nothing on the ingredients list says anything about caramel or sugar so I was a bit confused.

Yes. Everything is Starbucks is Paleo, especially a caramel frappe, with extra cream, hazelnut syrup and a spunk muffin.

What do you think? I'd have thought the word "caramel" was a give away.
