Java Delight UnCups Review (Available at Farm Fresh)

If you have a Keurig, you know how expensive K-Cups can be.  Not only do K-cups stretch the budget, they are adding more waste to landfills.  Now I admit, I love my Keurig.  It just makes my life easy especially since my husband and I are up at different times drinking coffee.

SUPERVALU has been busy developing a private label Java Delight UnCups™. They wanted to bring customers single-use coffee pods, but make them more environmentally-friendly. Java Delight UnCups are made with 30 percent less material by weight than leading national brand pods. Even the cardboard is 100% recyclable, and the inner packaging bag is made with corn resin.

You can definitely see a difference in the Uncups vs the standard K-cups just by opening the box.  First, the UnCups are in a bag instead of just a box.   In order to maintain freshness, it is suggested that you don’t put UnCups on a carousal. The mesh in the UnCup is susceptible to outside aromas.  My husband  believes that the mesh allows for a stronger cup of coffee than standard K-cups.  This is a HUGE bonus for him.  We both enjoyed the taste of the Special Roast and Donut Shop.  I honestly believe the flavor is just as good as (if not better than) leading K-Cups manufactures.

You can choose from six varieties of the new UnCup including: French Roast, Decaf French Roast, Breakfast Blend, Donut Shop, 100% Colombia Supremo, and Special Blend.   Java Delight is available at all SUPERVALU banners, including Albertsons, Cub Foods, Jewel-Osco, Shop ‘n Save, Hornbacher’s, ACME, Shaw’s, SHOPPERS, Farm Fresh, as well as other retailers across the country.

Disclosure:  I received 3 boxes of Java Delight UnCups to facilitate my review.  No other compensation was received.  All opinions are 100% my own and may differ from others.

    WHOA! THANK YOU FOR THE UNCUP! THE FLAVOR IS COMPARABLE TO MY MORE EXPENSIVE KUERIG BRANDS! LESS WASTE AND LESS COST! I WILL BE BUYING IT IN THE FUTURE AND TELLING ALL MY FRIENDS!

    I used my first UnCup today. The French Roast is great, tasted exactly like other French Roasts I’ve used in the KCup brands. I made a slight adjustment in how much water and it was perfect! I will be anxious to try more of the varieties soon. Easier for disposal and earth friendly too! I will be letting all my friends know also and I thanked my daughter for buying me my first box of UnCups.

        It’s probably a good idea to run spell/grammar check before you post. You replied: “I’m so glad you likes them! I was surprised how they tasted as goods as some of my favorite brands as well!” Hopefully you can find the typos, because that doesn’t read well at all.

        Also, in your disclosure you wrote, “Not other compensation was received. “

          Pat, did you like Java Delight? You didn’t mention that. Do you just scroll through the internet looking to correct and embarrass those folks wanting to contribute. Correct mine if you like. It’s a sad situation, get over it a smell the coffee.

    I received a package of uncups as a free gift from Albertson’s. I can say I was skeptical about the product but after using them, I was pleasantly surprised buy how comparable the taste was to the MORE expensive k-cups. I also like the fact that they are made out of more biodegradable materials. I have told others about this find. I hope they come out with some other flavors.

    I love the little pods. No little grounds that sometime seek out of the plastic cups into YOUR cup.
    Thank you.

    I had a Java Delight at my sister’s this weekend. We do not have any of the above mention retailers near here. What is the best way to buy on line?
