International Delight’s S’mores Creamer takes me back to my days at Boy Scouts camp.
The sunlight hours were spent earning Merit Badges, repelling mosquitos, and using the only toilet with running water at the camp which was at the main lodge. Nights involved more mosquitos, sleeping on the hard ground, latrine use, and coming up with schemes to get me sent home because I hated camping.
Of course, the creamer mostly reminds me of the nightly s’mores consumption around the campfire. But the crunchy, gooey, and messy treat was never good enough to make me forget I was in the middle of a forest surrounded by mosquitos and I had to do my business in what was basically a hole in the ground.
This limited edition s’mores variety is not International Delight’s first attempt at a s’mores-flavored creamer. It had one years ago in partnership with Hershey’s. This 2019 version has nothing to do with the candy bar even though s’mores are kind of synonymous with the Pennsylvanian chocolate.
The folks at International Delight sent me its latest s’mores creamer, and, fortunately, I had more than enough coffee to try it with because it just so happened I received a few 96-ounce insulated bags of Starbucks brewed coffee in cardboard dispensers from a person who was looking to dump some hot merchandise. Of course, “hot” meaning hot coffee and not stolen goods. Wink.
Anyhoo, I had a lot of coffee, which means I either had a lot of opportunities to taste the creamer
or I could start my own black market Starbucks stand.
The product does make my stolen, I mean, gifted Starbucks coffee taste chocolatey and a little marshmallowy. I couldn’t detect any graham cracker, which was disappointing. Even pouring it straight into my mouth didn’t result in getting any of that flavor.
Besides having some graham cracker flavor, I do wish the marshmallow was a bit more noticeable. Although it did come out a tad more when I drank it by itself. With a strong chocolate base, it makes my coffee taste similar to other cups I’ve had with other chocolate-based coffee creamers.
International Delight’s Limited Edition S’mores Creamer is lacking a noticeable graham flavor, but having just chocolate and marshmallow flavoring isn’t bad in any way.
DISCLOSURE: I received a free sample of the product. Doing so did not influence my review in any way. Although, it totally seems like it. But I assure you it did not. Also, thanks to International Delight for sending the sample.
