Nescafe with Coffee-mate Review #NescafeCoffeeMate

Monday, December 29, 2014

DISCLOSURE:  I received free products from Smiley360 to facilitate this review.  All opinions are my own.

I love coffee.  I drink at least a cup or two each day.  It helps get me going in the morning and it also helps me unwind in the evening.  I usually drink brewed coffee, from either my drip coffeemaker or my Keurig.  It's very rare for me to drink instant coffee.  While convenient to use, instant coffees usually don't taste as good as brewed coffee.  At least not for me.

Recently, I had the chance to try Nescafe with Coffee-mate.  It's a new 2-in-1 that combines Nescafe instant coffee with Nescafe Coffee-mate creamer.  It's available in three flavors:

  • French Vanilla
  • Hazelnut
  • Sweet & Creamy Original
I was sent the Sweet & Creamy Original flavor to try.

Nescafe with Coffee-Mate is really easy to make.  You add two tablespoons of the powder to a mug.

Then, you add 6-8 fl. oz of hot water.  I added a cup of water, though, I probably should have chosen a smaller mug!

Stir and enjoy!  No need to add cream or sweetener.

The coffee was just like the flavor suggested -- sweet and creamy.  It was actually a little too sweet. But, it was good. I drank the whole cup pretty quickly.  Usually, I have more than just 8 oz of coffee in one sitting.  If I was drinking coffee from my drip coffeemaker, I would have poured enough coffee to fill the mug!

Would you recommend it?  Yes.  It tastes great and it's easy to make.  Though, if I had a choice between freshly brewed coffee and the Nescafe with Coffee-Mate, I'd choose the brewed coffee.  I can customize how much cream and sugar I want to add.

How much does it cost?  A 12 oz canister retails for about $5.49.

Where can I buy it?  You can find it at all major drug stores, mass merchandisers, grocery stores and online retailers.
