I just won't function without my cafecito in the mornings. Can you relate? I once thought it was just 'in my head' and I tried to go without it. That experiment did not go well … for my children, mostly. "Sorry, kids!" Instead of digging in to the research of addicition/non-addiction to caffeine., I'll share with you that my cafecito is my perfect companion because it's comforting. Es como un amigo that never lets me down.
On Twitter, Instagram, and FB, I share what I love. It didn't take long for me to find these photos of mi cafecito!
This friend of mine has been true to me over the years and brings along with it so many memories. I remember the smell of my parents coffee brewing in the mornings as we prepared for school days. When I visit my grandpa back home, there is always coffee served, especially in the evenings. I've remained pretty loyal, too … always serving it up with vanilla creamer, usually Coffee-mate's French Vanilla, and un poquito azucar!
THEN … I discovered Coffee-mate's Girl Scouts® Thin Mints® creamer at Latism 2013 Conference. (see top left photo)
Um, hello?! Where have you been all my life? Now, I can have the taste of my favorite cookie in my cafecito, tambien? … l.o.v.e. A new compañero perfecto! Coffee-mate's Girl Scouts® Thin Mints® creamer isn't overpowering or too sweet. You know that aroma of a freshly opened package of Thin Mints®? That's what you will experience when you open this creamer to pour in the coffee. It really does taste like the cookie. I add two small scoops of sugar and it's perfect for me. Then again, that's how I have all my coffee.
And vanilla? Don't worry, it wasn't abandoned. I did give the new Natural Bliss Vanilla a try. It tastes lighter, not as heavy on the vanilla taste as the regular vanilla creamer. Coffee-mate's Naturally Bliss line is made of only four ingredients: NONFAT MILK, HEAVY CREAM, SUGAR, NATURAL FLAVOR. If you are simplifying your diet but still want flavorful coffee, I suggest going with your choice of Coffee-mate's Natural Bliss line.
Coffee-mate has flavors just for the holidays such as Spiced Latte and Peppermint Mocha (my mom's favorite). They also have another Girl Scouts® flavor – Caramel and Coconut. There is plenty to choose! Visit Coffee-mate.com to see all their new, seasonal and original flavors.
