Living in San Antonio was wonderful. The past three years there were full of good memories as a family and with all of the wonderful friends that we had made living there. Leaving the city has been hard for me- I know it’s part of the military life, but I will really miss my community there. Another thing I’ll miss? The food scene. The city has a wonderful selection of food, from high-end restaurants to hole-in-the-wall-but-mouth-watering Mexican joints. Latin flavors stand out in my mind when I think of eating out in San Antonio.
So I was really excited to try the new Coffee-Mate Latin Flavors varieties. Making my coffee each morning now that we’ve moved already reminds me of San Antonio (a friend got me a pour-over coffee kit and some fabulous organic coffee as a going away gift) but I thought these would add a taste of home as well. They definitely do not disappoint.
The Mexican Hot Chocolate flavor added a hint of chocolate flavor to my coffee but with the great cinnamony spice of real Mexican hot chocolate. Oh man, it was such a nice treat after a workout this morning. It really kicked my coffee up a notch from my regular boring coffee. And since we spent the rest of the morning running all over God’s green earth finishing up some errands before my husband goes back to work, I’m glad I had a really delicious caffeinated start to my day.
Earlier this week I tried the Dulce de Leche flavor- it’s sweet with a milky caramel flavor. It’s a nice treat in the morning but you know what’s even better? Making a cup of decaf at night and adding the Dulce de Leche Coffee-Mate. It’s my dessert while I unwind on the couch and watch TV. Since I’m trying to wean myself off of eating actual dessert at night, this is a nice substitute.
It’s basically impossible not to love these flavors. If you’d like to find out more, follow Coffee-Mate on Twitter for more delicious fun and giveaway opportunities!
