6 Snacks To Pair With Your On-The-Go Coffee

Not every cup of coffee can be enjoyed while resting on an overstuffed divan. Sometimes you've just got to grab a cup and go. But that doesn't mean you need to go hungry. Here are six tasty snacks that make excellent travel and coffee companions.

1. Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
Chances are you've got one of these orange gourds somewhere around your house. When you're carving your jack-o'-lantern, keep the seeds and roast them up with some salt and cinnamon. These are perfect for a boost of protein to go with your mobile cup of coffee.

2. Granola Mix
Off on a brisk walk through the park? Bring along a healthy granola mix to sate your appetite along the way. Add in some dried fruit for vitamins, nuts for protein, and chocolate chips for a bit of sweet indulgence.

3. Pretzels
The salty crunch of pretzels goes great with coffee. Munch on a few while you're brewing up a thermos with your Mr. Coffee® Pour! Brew! Go! Personal Coffee Maker. This machine, which comes in five bold colors, is perfect for the coffee lover on the move.

4. Yogurt
Plain, blueberry, strawberry or key lime pie flavored - you just can't go wrong pairing yogurt with coffee. It's a healthy snack that tastes sweet and complements even the darkest of roasts.

5. Chocolate Chip Cookies
They may not be the healthiest item on the list, but chocolate chip cookies are among the tastiest. Chocolate and coffee pair together excellently. If you've got a long commute in the morning, give yourself a little treat with this sweet combination.

6. Dried Apple Slices
Dried apple slices are easy to take on the go and they don't make your fingers sticky. Green apples will satisfy those with a taste for sour things, and red apples are sweet and refreshing - even when dried. Neither flavor interferes with the great taste of a hot cup of coffee.
