Even if you aren’t a sports fan, there’s one reason you might still love Super Bowl Sunday: the Puppy Bowl! Every year, Animal Planet airs its own big game by hosting two teams of adoptable puppies to run around on a mini football field with the main goal of being adorable. This year, there’s an extra-special reason to get excited about SBLVI because Grounds & Hounds Coffee Co. has just teamed up with Animal Planet to release a limited-edition Puppy Bowl Blend. As the official fuel for Puppy Bowl XVIII, this coffee blend is the perfect way to start your day before watching Team Fluff and Team Ruff face off.

Not only is the packaging of this Puppy Bowl Blend so cute, but Grounds & Hounds has ensured what’s inside is just as special. The 100-percent Arabica blend is made of their highest-grade beans from Guatemala and Papua New Guinea. The silky-smooth medium roast was their most popular release last year and is designed to be the perfect winter morning cup of coffee (enjoyed alongside your furry best friend of course!). It has notes of caramel and berries when you first take a sip, with dark chocolate, toasted pecan, and French vanilla flavors following. It’ll instantly make you feel warm, perfect for staying cozy on the couch all Sunday watching the two biggest games of the year.

And, to make this package even sweeter, each bag comes with a choice of bandana for your pup. Your pooch can show their loyalty for Team Ruff or Team Fluff with these celebratory bandanas — you can use them for next year’s game too!

To really prep for the day, Grounds & Hounds also has the Puppy Bowl Bundle. It includes a bag of coffee, a bandana, and a plush football so your pup can play along during the game. 

When you buy from Grounds & Hounds Coffee Co., you’re also supporting animal rescue initiatives and organizations across the country. The coffee company donates a whopping 20 percent of its proceeds to rescue efforts to support volunteers and the pets they save every day.

Giving to a good cause, enjoying delicious coffee, and watching puppies play for hours? Sounds like a winning day to us!
