Coffeemate: A love affair

Coffeemate, let's mate.

It's no secret that I love coffee. I'm a three-cups-in-the-morning sort of girl and there are usually a few extra after that. I'll take any type except decaf because, well, decaf is fake coffee. I usually roll with plain milk in my coffee but occasionally I am wooed by the colorful flavored creamers at the supermarket and just have to take one home with me. These are a few of my favorites.

1. Hazelnut
Hazelnut Liquid

This was my first coffeemate love and I never looked back. I don't know what it is about hazelnut that makes it so delicious (seriously, what is it?!) but it's the perfect mate to my coffee.

2. French Vanilla
French Vanilla Liquid
Super sweet. Super awesome. Probably even more classic than the hazelnut, but I'm biased.

3. Amaretto
Amaretto Liquid

The Italian in me approves.

4. Almond Joy

Okay, this is not coffeemate, per se, but it is way too amazing to not mention. I had this for the first time last week and tweeted that I wanted to bathe in it. That was not a hyperbole. Almonds. Chocolate. Coconut. Oh my!

Do you guys like flavored creamers? Any recommendations for new flavors to try??


  1. Christopher loves creamer in his coffee! He prefers the powdered kind, though. Not sure why. When I used to use creamer I loved anything chocolately or hazelnutty. :)

    1. I don't think I've every used powdered creamer. Probably have at some point and I just can't remember! And yes--the hazelnutty stuff is where it's at. I'd choose it over any other flavor!

  2. I'm embarrassed to say that all I can handle is decaf. No really. Anything more than that an I am completely out of control!

    1. I totally understand others not having my iron-clad-stomach when it comes to caffeine! My tolerance is a bit higher than most :)
