I used to drink my coffee with lots of 1/2 and 1/2 and sugar until I found that I had high cholesterol and needed to loose some weight. Then I weaned myself off of adding sugar and switched to fat free 1/2 and 1/2.
Last Fall I was hosting a coffee function at Miss Munchkin's school and a parent raved on and on about this:
Up till that point, I was such a coffee snob - I never touched that fake creamer stuff. But, just to humor her, I added some to my coffee and - oh my! It tasted just like those fancy Gingerbread Lattes at Starbucks! Only this cost less than $4 a cup. I was hooked.
But there was a problem - this is a seasonal flavor and was only offered once a year. So I did what any reasonable coffee addict would do - I stocked up. This stuff has a frighteningly long shelf life so every time I went to the grocery store, I took all of the Pumpkin Spice creamer off of the shelves and hid them in my vegetable drawer of my refrigerator at home. Inevitably the stores stopped carrying it so I switched to Fat Free Cinnamon Vanilla Creme. I can't, in good conscience, actually recommend the stuff because it has hydrogenated oil. Their website states:
Liquid flavors contain less than 0.5g of trans fat per serving. Although the ingredient statement lists partially hydrogenated oil, the amount is trivial. Therefore, it can be listed as 0 (per FDA guidelines) on the nutritional statement. COFFEE-MATE Fat Free, Sugar Free and Original have a 0 trans fat content.But if you REALLY want to try it, or if you already use it, here's coupon for a Free Bottle (until June 2nd).
