Each morning, it's a battle for my sleepy coffee-craving self not to indulge and pay for expensive iced coffee. $5 adds up (ugh), especially if you need coffee every morning. If you buy the decadent coffee drink you desire every day, that adds up to about $150 a month, y'all. I'll be honest, I do splurge at least once a week at my local coffee shop, but I can save so much money thanks to Starbucks creamer. If you hold yourself back and just get expensive coffee on Fridays or treat-yourself days, your wallet will thank you. Plus, Starbucks creamers make you feel like you're not missing out!
I've tried every Starbucks liquid coffee creamer from the grocery store, and so far so good. Really good, actually. However, some are much better than a few flavors I've tried. This ranking is based on my preferences, and everyone will have different opinions when it comes to flavoring your coffee drinks. Starbucks does a good job of providing multiple options to fit whatever you're feeling. If you love a good hazelnut latte, you can enjoy the Hazelnut Latte creamer to transport yourself right to your local Starbucks.
To get the day started, chocolate lovers can treat themselves to the White Chocolate Mocha flavor for a white chocolate treat. Although the Pumpkin Spice Latte Starbucks Creamer isn't available year-round, when the fall rolls around, it's just one step away from the beloved PSL that you indulge in every autumn. Unfortunately, as much as I love Coffeemate and International Delight, they just don't measure up to the flavor and selection of Starbucks creamers.
Here's the definitive ranking of every Starbucks creamer available now.
Starbucks Coffee Creamer Ranking
Cinnamon Dolce Latte is for coffee lovers who love cinnamon. Back in my college days (extremely broke days), I often used milk, sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon to sweeten my coffee.
I did everything for a budget-friendly cinnamon flavoring. Now, I can just add a few drops of this cinnamon dulce creamer to my home coffee to satisfy my cinnamon cravings. Unfortunately, I'm not the biggest cinnamon fan, so this flavor is last on my list.
First off, shout out to Starbucks for looking out for those who need non-dairy creamer. Hazelnut latte is perfect for anyone whose go-to flavor is hazelnut. (I'm team white chocolate and caramel, so this wasn't a favorite of mine.)
It's still delicious, and a major perk is that it's non-dairy! It's made from almond milk and oat milk.
This buttery caramel creamer reminds me of a candy bar. It's super sweet but so satisfying! In the afternoons, I'm able to satisfy my sweets and caffeine cravings with this flavor.
Again, I'm not one to rush to Starbucks ordering a toffeenut-flavored drink, so it's no surprise it didn't make my top three. Starbucks certainly didn't miss the mark. If you love toffeenut, you'll love this flavor.
White chocolate creamer had the potential to be first, but it just wasn't sweet enough for my ice-cold coffee. If you enjoy a warm cup of coffee, then you'll love it! The hints of vanilla flavor are more inviting when your coffee is hot. Since it's getting cooler outside, I can see myself buying this 28fl-oz bottle of coffee creamer more often.
Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha creamer genuinely has the same great taste as a hot cup of white chocolate mocha. It tastes like melted chocolate. Yum! It's definitely a step up from French vanilla creamer.
Starbucks Caramel Macchiato creamer makes one delicious cup of coffee! I always keep my fridge stocked with this caramel-flavored creamer. White chocolate will probably be a favorite of mine once it's cooler, but I think we can all agree that caramel is a year-round flavor no one can resist.
We can only hope that Salted Caramel Mocha and Pumpkin Spice Latte will be available sometime soon! No matter the season, you can't go wrong with Pumpkin Spice.
Thank you, Starbucks, for making our dreams come true! Lousy K-cup coffee and ground coffee now taste like an amazing cup of coffee from your coffee chain. This tasty alternative to milk is the perfect addition to my espresso or morning coffee.
