Lately I’ve been looking to spice up my coffee with more than just the standard skim milk and Equal. The coffee house standards like cinnamon, nutmeg, and powdered cocoa are nice….adding some Vanilla extract or Kahlua….even better. But just a few weeks ago, I discovered that Coffee Mate now offers a liquid-based World Cafe Collection….far tastier than the powdered variety.
Yesterday morning, I added some Coffee Mate Italian Cream to my same-day roasted whole bean Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee from Oren’s which turned out to be the perfect companion enhancing this lively island brew.
I can’t wait to try out Coffee Mate’s other flavors like Parisian Almond Crème, Hazelnut Biscotti, Tiramisu, and Belgian Chocolate Toffee. Not only is the dairy and sweetener automatically combined without the saturated fat, but the possible flavor combinations are endless. Right now I’m thinking a spicy Starbucks Kimodo Dragon blend paired with Coffee Mate’s Belgian Chocolate Toffee….mmm!
From now until January 10, give me your favorite coffee and Coffee Mate pairing to win a prize pack stuffed with a $10 iTunes gift card, 2 Coffee Mate coupons, Coffee Mate mug, and….drum roll….an Altec Lansing inMotion Compact Portable Stereo for iPod. All that’s missing is your personal iPod loaded with your favorite tunes! The most original description of how you would use this pack to create your own coffee house experience at home gets it delivered to your doorstep.
