OTTAWA, ON, Canada -- The hit TLC series Cake Boss is the inspiration for a new line of Keurig-compatible coffees, launched by Single Cup Coffee and TLC parent Discovery Communications.
The flagship Buddy's Blend portion pack, named after Cake Boss Buddy Valastro, is a classic Italian roast that features East African coffees that are roasted extra dark to offer intense, bold flavor in a heavy-bodied cup.
Buddy himself, famous around the globe for his flair for baking, has infused the seven flavored coffees in the line with the tastes of his favorite creations seen on his show. They include chocolate fudge cake, dulce de leche (regular and decaf), vanilla buttercream, hazelnut biscotti, raspberry truffle and Italian rum cake.
Cake Boss Coffee is supplied and distributed across North America by Ontario-based Single Cup Coffee. Retailers in the U.S. and Canada began stocking the product this spring.
New episodes of Buddy's hit series "Next Great Baker and Bakery Boss" will air this summer on TLC, keeping the brand prominent among consumers.
