The Vikings Have Their Own Official Blend Of Caribou Coffee

July 31, 2018

The Vikings have a a lot of things that are new, like a quarterback, training facility and now a new signature coffee blend! Caribou Coffee announced that the Vikings will have the “SKOL” blend! Caibou says, "the idea was to create a coffee Vikings fans could enjoy on a warm morning tailgating outside U.S. Bank Stadium or while camping on the couch during a frigid December game day."

Jenifer Hangess, the vice president of marketing at Caribou, says SKOL blend is a medium roast with a nutty flavor, and notes of cinnamon and cherry. Just as the Vikings are known to give back to the community, SKOL blend also has a built-in charity component to help the next generation of Minnesotans. Caribou also said, 10 percent of SKOL blend proceeds sold at its locations will go to the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital.

The Skol blend will be in stores and at Caribou locations starting Thursday, and Keurig cups with SKOL blend are expected to be released in September.

Caribou did not specify how long the limited release blend will be available.
