==Nestle Coffee Mate==
Being a relatively new drinker of coffee and still wanting to find that perfect brand and type of coffee to make up the best drink possible, I am also keen to try out all the products that go along with the coffee such as brown sugar and of course this Nestle Coffee Mate.
I picked up a jar of this product in my local Morrison's on my weekly shop and paid a not too cheap but still reasonable ú2.49 pence for the 500 gram sized product. It was a little more than I did want to pay for a product such as this but on the other hand I was keen to try it out and couldn't help myself popping it into the shopping trolley.
The nestle Coffee Mate product itself is basically a cream substitute which is in a freeze dried form. This is not only a good product to have because of the added taste but also for those moment when you run out of milk in the fridge it is always nice to know you can still have a coffee before going out to the shop to replace the fresh milk!
The packaging is not bad and does its job well. There is an easy to remove and replace red plastic screw topped cap on the jar and the plastic covering wrapper gives you information on how to use the product. It states that a good two teaspoons full of the Coffee Mate will be enough to add to each mug to give an adequate taste.
These should be added to the coffee and water once made up. The fluffy grains of Coffee Mate were quick to dissolve in the hot water and gave a rather frothy appearance to my mug of coffee drink.
The coffee mate stirred in nicely and made the drink become a rich and creamy colour which looked ever so much more appealing than the using the regular milk from the fridge. I also noticed that my coffee was a lot hotter than it usually is because I haven't added a cold milk to it but rather these dried teaspoons of this product. I was very impressed with this factor of using the Coffee Mate.
So as far as the taste of my coffee goes when using this Nestle Coffee mate as opposed to using regular fresh semi skimmed milk I would say that it is so much nicer and it is now a product I am really quite hooked on. The taste of the coffee becomes creamier and smoother with a hotter and generally more luxurious taste than I have been used to. This is certainly a product that I will be buying again and again.
I find that this Nestle Coffee Mate is easy to get hold of as I have seen it in most supermarkets and even smaller local shops (although the price does go up in these small shops) and not only that but is it often on some sort of special offer too.
It is easy to use and a godsend to have in the cupboard in case regular milk has been used up. The only draw back I can find is the fact that a tub of this product is a little expensive as it doesn't really seem to last that long (especially considering how much coffee we have been drinking in this house lately).
However all in all I really don't feel I can mark it down a single star at all. It is a really great product which is worthy of the top score of 5 out of 5 star rating and I would certainly recommend it to any coffee drinker wanting to make their coffee that little bit more special.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read
