Get your ugly on!

December 15th is National Ugly Sweater Day! Yep, there is such a day and I know you’re super excited! So what constitutes an Ugly Sweater? Well honestly, it’s any holiday themed sweater that isn’t visually appealing. This said sweater can be adorned with ornaments, lights and other decoration. This is the only time the fashion police will let you cruise on by without batting an eye.


Ugly sweaters are so popular that people will actually host an Ugly Sweater party. You guessed it, there’s usually a contest on the ugliest sweater at the party. Apparently the guy on the furthest right didn’t get the memo that it was supposed to be an Ugly Sweater party…”Gee Todd, are you sure you’re not supposed to be at the Plain Pullover Party down the street?”

With any Ugly Sweater Party, the best thing to serve at these functions would be coffee. Not just regular coffee that comes out of a can, nope! You need to serve It’s a Grind Coffee. Since we are smack dab in the middle of the holiday season, we do carry some festive whole bean options. Egg Nog Whole Beans is ultra delicious. Just think, you’re combining some fantastic coffee with the decadent flavors of Egg Nog. It doesn’t get any better than that! Oh wait, it sorta does! Winter Blend has been in our stable for as long as I can remember. It’s a perennial favorite through out our It’s a Grind Coffee House fans. It’s a combination of cinnamon and vanilla, reminiscent of a sugar cookie or even a snickerdoodle cookie.

So if you plan on hosting an Ugly Sweater Party, then make sure that people like Todd (above) show up in an ugly sweater. If his excuse is that he doesn’t have one, tell him to go to Walmart and spend $10 for one. Anyhow, at the party, make sure you serve some fresh hot It’s a Grind Coffee.
