Is that coffee or a Girl Scout cookie?

      2 Comments on Is that coffee or a Girl Scout cookie?

It’s no secret that I love coffee. I think I love it more than wine. Don’t tell wine. So, when the folks at Coffee-mate offered to send me two flavors to try out, I jumped at the chance. Normally, I don’t take cream in my coffee…unless it’s a special occasion. But, when I do use creamer, I like it to be flavored.

These weren’t just any flavors sent to me by Coffee-mate. They were the Girl Scout Cookie flavors, Thin Mint and Caramel & Coconut. These are my two favorite Girl Scout cookie flavors. Samoa, Caramel De-Lite or as Coffee-mate calls it, Caramel & Coconut, is the best in my opinion. And these two creamers, taste just like the cookies. I wouldn’t go as far as saying they are substitutes for the cookies, but they are delicious in and of themselves.


I had initially taken them to work to share with everyone…I shared them with no one, and I’m not sorry. Go get your own!

Honestly though, I’ve always been a fan of Coffee-mate’s flavors. The other day when I was in the grocery store, I saw Dark Chocolate Fudge. If I didn’t have the other two sitting in my fridge (who am I kidding, they’re gone), I would have bought that then and there.

One thing I did notice, when I had some creamer in my coffee, I didn’t crave something sweet for my midmorning snack.

I think with my next batch of Coffee-mate, I might try baking with it. That’s right, I said bake. Did you know you can use it in more than just beverages? This Winter Spice Scones recipe sounds pretty good to me.

    I am not a coffee drinker, but those creamers look amazing. Would it be considered crass to just take pulls from the bottle? Because I could get a straw.

      At BlogHer ’13, I went to a tasting party where samples of different creamers were poured into little cups…no coffee! I say drink them like a shot if you want. 🙂 Also, I was thinking today of different beverages in which you could add them. I mean, why not add them to tea? I guess it depends on the tea.
