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.
