Taking your coffee black is fine. Many of us do it because we're watching our sugar or, ultimately, calorie intake. Not everyone cares about sugar and calories, though. Further, many people just flat-out don't enjoy black coffee. You can put a dash of whole milk or some skim milk in your coffee to cut back on its bitterness. There's almond milk and soy milk and even pea milk. Some coffee drinkers want more than this, though.
They go for the crazy, incredibly sweet creamer varieties. This trend of using flavored coffee creamer has gone way beyond your standard French Vanilla and Peppermint Mocha. The world of coffee creamers is growing increasingly elegant and there's even creamer inspired by The Cheesecake Factory coming out soon. Caramel Macchiato flavors are popular, and you can even find ice cream inspired flavors from Cold Stone Creamery.
That said, we figured it was time to compile a list of some of the most interesting coffee creamer flavors out there.
1. Chocolate Toffee Truffle
You'll see this become a theme, but does coffee with Chocolate Toffee Truffle creamer in it really count as coffee? We're looking at this, and most of the other entries on this list, as dessert more than an otherwise fairly healthy beverage.
At least it's not a Pumpkin Spice Iced Coffee, right?
2. Mocha Almond Fudge
Inspired by ice cream, the Coffee-mate Mocha Almond Fudge creamer flavor sounds like it will rot your teeth right away. Instantly.
If you know where to get it, though, show us. We'll try anything once, even candy bar flavors. It beats a boring French Vanilla creamer any day.
While eggs and multigrain toast may be a more wholesome breakfast, many people do reach right for cinnamon buns when they're an option from Cinnabon.
That said, why eat one when you can drink it with your coffee? Just grab cinnamon donuts from Dunkin' Donuts to pair with it.
4. Eggnog Latte
'Tis the season to drink eggnog at all possible avenues. If you can't wait for it to be 5 o'clock somewhere and want to start your day with that good ol' holiday flavor, this one's for you. (We won't judge if you put a splash of booze in it. We know nothing.)
5. Hershey's Chocolate Caramel
If you're used to getting mocha, you know that it's just code for chocolate. This Hershey's Chocolate Caramel creamer isn't even trying to sound sophisticated.
This stuff is straight-up chocolate. Now if only they made White Chocolate...
6. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
The verdict on the Reese's International Delight coffee creamer: 😕. Though it smells chocolatey, it tastes like artificial peanut butter and nothing like Reese's. I used as much creamer as it took to achieve this color, plus one stevia packet, and Reese's didn't dance through my brain ever. Wasn't gross though. You'd need to add a lotttt of creamer to really make this close, or perhaps just add all the candy I've laid out here to fill space for a photo. 6/10 max 💔
When International Delight's Reese's peanut butter cup creamer came out, we lost our minds. You can see our write up on it by clicking here.
Although it tastes mostly like peanut butter and not too chocolatey, you still may want to give it a go.
7. Crème Brulée
What did we tell you about dessert being a theme, here? It's no Southern Butter Pecan or Italian Sweet Creme, but it's just as good.
8. Frosted Sugar Cookie
Arguably one of the more creative creamers on the list, International Delight's Frosted Sugar Cookie creamer sounds, well, delightful.
9. White Russian Truffle
New Bailey's White Russian Truffle coffee creamer at Hy-Vee! Since it's non-alcoholic, does that mean is just coffee flavored white chocolate truffle flavored coffee creamer? Basically, white chocolate flavor. #new #coffee #coffeecreamer #baileys #whiterussian #alcohol #latte #whitechocolate #breakfast #caffeine #junkfood #iifym #macros #cheatmeal
Bailey's and coffee is a favorite morning adult beverage of many. This Bailey's White Russian Truffle creamer, though, is non-alcoholic. That said, we're not sure exactly how it will taste, as White Russian implies booze.
10. Coconut Caramel Latte, 11. Cookies & Cream, and 12. Toasted Marshmallow Mocha
If you haven't noticed, International Delight and Coffee-mate have taken over nearly this entire list. That said, Coffee-mate's three most recent creamers all sound ridiculous.
