Keurig Platinum Brewing System + Free K Cups Giveaway!

***This giveaway is now closed. Thank you for entering!***

I wish I could zip you up into my suitcase and take you with me to Jamaica!

beach paradise

Alas, I’m not sure how cozy the underbelly of a plane would be, so let’s get you a taste of the tropics with island-inspired Coconut Mocha K Cups brewed in your very own Keurig Platinum Brewing System at home!


If you’ve been reading IGE for any length of time, then you know how obsessed I am with my Keurig. Since Ben doesn’t drink coffee, I used to make a whole pot just for me in the morning which took oodles of time, not to mention messing around with coffee grounds and filters at 6am is slightly hazardous work.

Keurig’s single cup brewing system uses pre-measured coffee pods that come in a TON of different flavors, like this tropical, chocolate and coconut spiked Coconut Mocha flavor, that lets me brew a yummy cup of hot coffee in about 30 seconds with no mess.


Keurig is giving away 1 Platinum Brewing System and 1 box of Coconut Mocha K Cups to 1 IGE reader. Enter to win this package by Tuesday, April 10th at 5pm central by doing one or both of the following:

1. Leave a comment telling me your favorite tropical destination (one you’ve visited, or want to visit!)

2. Share this post on Facebook using the Facebook share button below this post, and leave a second comment telling me you’ve done so.

Good luck everyone! 8)

    My favorite tropical destination in the US is Destin, FL. I visited St. Maarten once on a cruise and thought it was beautiful!

  3. Lisa Lewis 04.10.2012

    My fav tropical destination would be Hawaii or an all inclusive in Mexico (love excellence Playa Muejeres)!

  4. Cheryl 04.10.2012

    Puerto Rico and I’ll tell you why. Though miles apart, my daughter/my best friend, and I are clean eating together with mutual support, motivation, and inspiration. I would like to go to Puerto Rico with Jody so we can enjoy lots of fresh food, take in lots of fresh sea air, and soak up all of the Vitamin D that we sorely miss here in the north.

  5. Meghan 04.10.2012

    I studied abroad in Greece when I was an undergraduate. Any of the beaches that I visited would fall under the category of “must visit” destinations! Unfortunately, my post-semester trip was cut short, so I didn’t get to see Santorini! That makes Santorini the #1 tropical destination that I want to visit!!!

  6. Erin B. 04.10.2012

    My favorite tropical destination is Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. I can taste the margaritas right now!

    I would love to visit Phuket province of Thailand. This large island is covered with mountains, rainforests, and a long stretch beach, so you get the best of both worlds, hiking and beach lounging. I can only imagine how great the food is =)

  9. Kristina 04.10.2012

    Does DisneyWorld count as tropical? (I live right next to you in NE. Does it count as tropical now?) I want to take my kids my there so bad!

  10. Lauren 04.10.2012

    Definitely Jamaica! My husband and I went to Sandals Montego Bay for our honeymoon in September (right before we moved to Iowa from Tennessee). They were so much about relaxation that the waiter told me I was doing too much work when I handed him my empty plate after the meal. That’s my kind of place…hope you are enjoying it!

  11. Michelle 04.10.2012

    Fav place would be Hawaii where we took our honeymoon. Oh how I wish I was there right now!

  12. Kendyl 04.10.2012

    St. Thomas!

  13. Danielle 04.10.2012

    My #1 tropical destination would the St. Regis Resort in Bora Bora! Oh how I wish I could afford that luxury!! :)

  14. Hali 04.10.2012

    My family lives in Kauai so I must admit I’m a little biased, but Jamaica sounds so wonderful!

    I haven’t been to any exotic locations, but I have a trip planned to the Florida gulf in about 3 weeks. I love the sand, the water, and nothing beats the South in my book. Have a great vacation!!!

  22. kira 04.10.2012
