It's still December, how could you possible know it tastes OK next year?

It's saying even though it is a "Christmas Blend" it will still taste good in January...

It's only good for the Espresso Blend and the Christmas Blend VIA.

Doesn't look have price to me. Maybe 35% off by not 50%.

Not 50% AND it's their instant (read: Sanka) coffee.

@rehudson: you mean read= tasters choice/nescafe/foldgers crystals-- that is freeze dried instant coffee, Sanka is decaffeinated instant coffee, so not really the same product- in fact Sanka is an invented word made up of the words Sans (without) and Kaffeine-

A bit late here, but the beans were half price in the store today also. The quantity wasn't high, but i got 2 bags of decaf christmas blend for the price of one. For me, it was a great deal.

12/26/12 - I bought a bag of the regular Christmas Blend beans for 1/2 price at the store today (reg. price $14.95). This great deal is valid until tomorrow for all 3 Christmas Blends -- regular, blond, and decaf. The beans will stay fresh for months in a sealed bag...and even after the bag is open (make sure to re-store the beans in an airtight bag in the freezer).

Think my bags stored in the freezer unopened in ziplocks from five years ago are still good?

@ytirayoh: Please dont put your beans in the freezer!

If you dont believe me then ask Starbucks.

The freezer will dry out anything and everything especially freshly roasted coffee beans.

Think about it. A cafe, grocery store, etc would love to guarantee the freshest beans for their customer. Do they store their beans in the freezer? NO!!!

Always store coffee beans away from heat, cold and light. I keep my beans in the basement in the larger Lock N Lock storage containers and those containers go in a cardboard box closed up. The beans I get have that espresso oil on them and I have stored beans like that (bought in bulk) for a year with zero change in the beans and that lovely oil looking fresh as the day they arrived at my door.
