If you’re anything like us here in the Northeast, you’ve been counting down the days to Spring ever since that 2nd flake of snow hit the ground this winter. Sure, this past winter has been a great opportunity to curl up next to a fire with a specialty Café Mocha from Café Escapes®, or whip up some pancakes alongside your favorite Green Mountain Coffee® Breakfast Blend. But let’s face it; I think we’re all looking forward to the change in seasons.
The Vernal (or Spring) Equinox officially occurs this Friday, March 20th at 6:45 pm EDT. But don’t tell your local weatherman, as the first day the spring meteorologically speaking is March 1st. What’s the difference? March 20th is when the “Sun crosses the celestial equator on its way north along the ecliptic” and March 1st is easier to keep statistical weather stats.

For me, I look to these tell-tale signs:
5.) I see more grass on the ground than snow.
4.) Green Mountain® Island Coconut ®Coffee starts to enter my afternoon coffee rotation.
3.) Pitchers and Catchers have already reported, and Professional Baseball is just around the corner.
2.) People start asking me, “Have you filled out your bracket yet?”
1.) The Keurig Store has introduced its new spring packaging for your very own selections for the Pick-A-Pack Wall! (see beautiful shot of the packaging above)
So come on into the Keurig Store at the Burlington Mall and celebrate the start of Spring. Customize a Keurig Brewed® beverage variety pack for yourself, for Mother’s Day, or just to bring a little color to your beverages.
No matter which way you look at it, Happy Spring!
