Mac’s All Grown Up: From 5 Cent Candies to Simply Great Coffee

Adulting. It’s a thing apparently. And whether we feel like it or not once we get to a certain stage in life we’re deemed grown ups and old enough to do all the things that come with the territory. Sure it’s a lot of fun- I can eat too much ice cream, buy whatever shoes I want, and pursue a career I love- but it’s also busy. I don’t know how many times in a day I joke about coffee and wine (couldn’t adult without them!) and I appreciate coffee even more when it’s hot.

And thankfully there’s plenty of options to choose from with a growing selection for busy days when you’re running from one place to the next to the next without a lot of time. When I was a kid Mac’s Convenience Stores were the corner store you went to after school, after practice, or ‘just because’ to stock up on 5 cent candies and they’re stepping up their coffee game to make getting that perfect cup of coffee a little easier and faster- perfect for busy grown ups (but I still love my 5 cent candies! 😉 ). They are now offering gourmet selections with their Simply Great Coffee machines available at locations throughout Western Canada with popular choices such as lattes, mochacinos, and dark roast coffee- perfect if you’re stopping to pick up a snack on the go, popping in with the kids, or just don’t want to drop five bucks for a good cup of coffee.

If you like trying new things and want to give the new Simply Great Coffee a try, I’ve got some coupons for free coffee to giveaway- enter below for 1 of 5 sets of coupons to try the new Simply Great Coffee (all of the barista- style drinks  such as lattes) and Premium coffee (drip coffee available in medium and dark roast). So the next time you’re craving a good cup of coffee, skip the drive through and pop into your local Mac’s to try their new varieties. You save a few bucks and get a good cup of coffee on the go (plus maybe a few candies to reward yourself while you’re at it!). Win- win. Enter below!
