September 29 is National Coffee Day — here are 6 caffeinated treats to help you indulge

Dunkin' Donuts has released a new breakfast item in honor of National Coffee Day (today, Sept. 29) that could be a lifesaver for those of us who, after a frantic morning, have to decide between coffee and breakfast.

The Dunkin' Go Bar, a chewy granola bar, tastes like Dunkin's Original Blend Coffee and boasts 7 grams of protein and 12 grams of whole grains.

Sadly the bar lacks caffeine, but it still sounds intriguing for those mornings when your stomach is grumbling for more than just a latte, but you're craving that warm, toasty flavor.

In fact, coffee makes just about everything taste better. In honor of #NationalCoffeeDay, why not try one of the scrumptious, java-laced treats below?
