On Wednesdays I take some time to review a product, place or experience in hopes I'll inspire someone to try something new!
This week is all about one of my favorite things in life: COFFEE. Nescafe sent me a few new products to try. Although I received these products for free for testing all the thoughts and opinions are my own.
The package included:
- A coupon for a free Coffee Mate bliss
- 2 packs of instant coffee
- 1 pack of instant cappuccino
The instant coffee was a dark blend- honestly these were nothing to write home about- they tasted just like every other instant coffee I've ever consumed- bitter and a sad alternative to real coffee. As much as instant is sometimes convenient I plan to stick with my beans for now.
The cappuccino was a delightful treat, closer to a hot chocolate blend than a coffee blend this mix was a sugary delight. As much as it was good, you couldn't drink one of these everyday- far too sweet. But after a nice dessert this would be the icing in the cake.
Lastly I redeemed the coupon for the Coffee mate. I picked up the hazelnut flavor to try, from Atlantic Superstore. Ironically I almost didn't get it, even though the coupon was chopped full of security features to prevent duplication the cashier that checked me out was very critical of the purchase... I guess she doesn't see those kind of promotional coupons very often.... After a good 5 minutes of staring at the glossy security stickers I think she finally realized there was no getting around me getting this product for free. She wasn't happy about it (maybe a little jealous who knows) but she finally applied the coupon and I was on my way.
This stuff was delicious! I really enjoyed a little pinch in my coffee to sweeten it up. Quite awhile ago I eliminated the sugar in my coffee all together so it was a nice treat to try this stuff (as it's a trio of flavoring, milk and sugar). My only critique was when I washed out the bottle to recycle it there was some not so appetizing chunks than fell into the sink. It certainly wasn't curdled so I can only assume it was settled sugar at the bottom of the bottle.
