REVIEW: Nestle Coffee mate New Fall 2021 Coffee Creamer Flavors

Nestle Coffee mate Natural Bliss Cinnamon Swirl Latte

If you don’t follow the coffee creamer universe, fall is one of the seasons when we see new varieties from Nestle Coffee mate. This year, the brand brings us two of them — Natural Bliss Cinnamon Swirl Latte and Natural Bliss Pumpkin Spice Oat Milk Creamer.

Oh, you were hoping for pecan pie a la mode or candied yams with marshmallows? That’s not happening this year.

Natural Bliss Cinnamon Swirl Latte

When I see “cinnamon” it a coffee creamer’s name, I automatically think of the bold Big Red gum-like flavor I’ve tasted with previous cinnamon-heavy creamers. But when I took a sip of cold brew coffee with several splashes of this, the cinnamon wasn’t like that at all. It’s milder than I was expecting. I don’t know if this will make sense, but the milk and cream do more of the magic of hiding the coffee than the cinnamon. Actually, on second thought, that makes sense since this has “latte” in its name.

Being part of the “Natural Bliss” line means no artificial colors or flavors, no rBST treated cows, and an ingredients list that I can quickly type right now, and it won’t have one-word ingredients with double-digit letters — nonfat milk, heavy cream, cane sugar, and natural flavor. Yup, that’s it. Oh, according to the bottle, that natural cinnamon flavor comes from real cinnamon sticks.

This isn’t a unique variety, but it’s an enjoyable refrigerated cinnamon coffee creamer that’s all-natural. It’s something that’s been lacking from the Natural Bliss line, although I’m disappointed it’s not permanent.

Natural Bliss Pumpkin Spice Oat Milk Creamer

Nestle Coffee mate Natural Bliss Pumpkin Spice Oat Milk Creamer

If you’ve had Coffee mate’s Natural Bliss Pumpkin Spice dairy creamer, which has been out for several years now, you’ll have an idea of what this tastes like.

It has the pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg flavors that you’d expect. When I drink it straight, like any normal human being would when faced with a new creamer, it reminds me of pumpkin pie. Also, this may be my taste buds’ wishful tasting, but when consuming it on its own, they think the oat milk kind of adds a flavor that could be described as pie crust-like.

When added to my cold brew, the usual seasonal flavors come through (although not the pie crust), but does it in a way that’s vegan, cholesterol-free, lactose-free, carrageenan-free, and gluten-free with no artificial colors or flavors too. If you’re looking for a non-dairy pumpkin spice creamer, this is a darn tasty choice.

REVIEW: Nestle Coffee mate New Winter 2021 Coffee Creamer Flavors

Nestle Coffe mate Milk Chocolate M M s Creamer

For those of you who don’t follow coffee creamers, winter is usually the time of year when a slew of them are introduced. This winter, Nestle Coffee mate is offering nine new products, but I’m going to be focusing on three of them here, which I received from the brand.

Milk Chocolate M&M’s Creamer

I very much know what Milk Chocolate M&M’s taste like due to my insistence that Fun Size packs should only be eaten by pouring their entire contents into my mouth instead of consuming them one by one like a bird, if birds ate M&M’s. Even though it’s primarily milk chocolate, the classic candy has a distinct flavor.

So after going through half a bottle of Coffee mate’s Milk Chocolate M&M’s Creamer, I have to say I don’t taste the popular candy, whether it’s in coffee or poured straight into my mouth as if the bottle is my mama bird and I’m a baby bird waiting for sustenance to land into my mouth.

I mean, it’s definitely milk chocolatey, and it turns any coffee I make with it into a tasty mocha-flavored beverage. However, it’s hard to distinguish the creamer as an M&M’s product, making it a little disappointing.

Glazed Donut Creamer

Nestle Coffee mate Glazed Donut Creamer

The donut and coffee combo has been around as long as chocolate and peanut butter have been in each other’s business. So it’s not surprising to see Nestle attempt to recreate a donut’s flavor within a coffee creamer. However, I don’t think the brand accomplished that.

What I taste leans more towards birthday cake frosting than a glazed donut when I add it to my daily iced coffee and when I try it on its own. There aren’t any fried dough notes or anything that reminds me of a pastry.

This Coffee mate Glazed Donut Creamer is not what I was hoping for, but it’s serviceable. If you want to experience donuts and coffee, you’re going to have to do it the old fashioned way.

Oatmeal Creme Pie Creamer

Nestle Coffee mate Oatmeal Creme Pie Creamer

Full disclosure: I don’t think I’ve ever had a Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pie. Oh, I think I just heard and felt everyone’s collective gasp. Or it could’ve been the wind. But I know what oatmeal cookies taste like and, after licking so many white, creamy, and sugary things in my life, my worn down taste buds might have an idea of what the creme tastes like. So I think I know what flavors to expect in this coffee creamer.

And one of those is, and this will sound super weird or wrong, whole grain oats. I’ve had enough oat milk in my life to know what oats taste like in liquid form, and I swear I taste something like it in this. Speaking of oats in liquid form, I wonder how this would taste if it was Coffee mate Natural Bliss Oatmeal Creme Pie Oat Milk Creamer. Just something for you to think about, Nestle.

As for other cookie ingredients, I also taste cinnamon and brown sugar. Oh, I should mention this smells precisely like oatmeal cookies, and it’s magnificent. As for the creme, my taste buds didn’t notice anything that could be considered creme-flavored. But, now that I think about it, it would be difficult to detect among the other bolder flavors.

Out of the three varieties here, I think this one is the best and most accurate tasting. But I wish it didn’t come only in a 16-ounce bottle.

REVIEW: Nestle Coffee mate New Fall 2020 Coffee Creamer Flavors

Nestle Coffee mate Nestle Toll House Cookies  N Cocoa Creamer Bottle

Nestle’s Coffee mate has three new seasonal flavors for Fall 2020, if you’re tired of the usual pumpkin spice and peppermint mocha. They are Nestle Toll House Cookies ‘N Cocoa Creamer, Natural Bliss Mint Truffle Creamer, and Natural Bliss Caramel Toffee Almond Milk Creamer.

Nestle Toll House Cookies ‘N Cocoa Creamer

When I started drinking coffee, the first creamer I tried was Coffee mate’s Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie. I loved how it turned black coffee and its bitter flavor into brown coffee with sweet notes of chocolate and cookie dough. Sadly, the flavor no longer exists. Even sadder, this Nestle Toll House Cookies ‘N Cocoa Creamer doesn’t evoke any memories of the variety that helped start my daily coffee addiction consumption.

While this doesn’t bring back thoughts of my coffee drinking origin story, it does make my daily cold brew taste chocolatey. Although, not as much as other chocolate-flavored creamers, like the Snickers and Dove Chocolate ones. I don’t taste cookies when I drink it with coffee, but I kind of do when drinking it straight. But, I mean, who regularly drinks creamer straight from the bottle, pouring it into their mouth like it’s the basin for a water fountain sculpture.

I’ll happily use this up, but overall I found it to be a little disappointing.

Natural Bliss Mint Truffle Creamer

Nestle Coffee mate Natural Bliss Mint Truffle Creamer Bottle

When taking a sip of my coffee with this creamer, my first thought was, “I’ve had this creamer before.” I want to say it reminds me of Coffee mate’s Peppermint Mocha, but I don’t recall ever trying it. Maybe I’m confusing it with all the Andes XL Snap Bars I’ve been eating to cope with the guilt of receiving a case of the candy and forgetting to promote it on this site and social media. #sorry

Nestle Coffee mate New Fall 2020 Coffee Creamer Flavors Andes XL

Natural Bliss Mint Truffle has an equal balance of mint and dark chocolate. The mint level isn’t going to make you think you’ve brushed your teeth or chewed on a piece of gum. If you’re not familiar with the Natural Bliss line, they’re all natural creamers made with real milk and cream from cows that aren’t treated with added growth hormones.

This creamer is a great addition to my cup of cold brew. It’s tasty enough that I wish it came in a bigger bottle. Maybe next year.

Natural Bliss Caramel Toffee Almond Milk Creamer

Nestle Coffee mate Natural Bliss Caramel Toffee Almond Milk Creamer Bottle

Hey, didn’t you just write that the Natural Bliss line are all natural creamers made with REAL MILK AND CREAM? This has almond milk. Okay. Okay. Coffee mate also has another Natural Bliss line that contains plant-based milks, like almond, oat, cashew, and coconut.

Usually, with almond milk creamers, I can tell if they have the nut milk. But with this one, I didn’t notice that. The caramel and toffee flavors are potent, so maybe they overwhelm the nuttiness. Also, and I know I said this about the Mint Truffle one, this one tastes similar to another creamer I’ve had. Geez, I’ve tried so many products to hide the flavor of black coffee.

My thoughts about this mirror what I think of the Mint Truffle variety. So much so that I’m going to copy and paste this: This creamer is a great addition to my cup of cold brew. It’s tasty enough that I wish it came in a bigger bottle. Maybe next year.

REVIEW: Nestle Coffee-mate Cinnamon Toast Crunch Creamer

Nestle Coffee mate Cinnamon Toast Crunch Creamer

Cinnamon Toast Crunch is, hands down, my favorite cereal. Enjoying a bowl of it can immediately transport me back to more carefree days. When I saw Nestle’s Coffee-mate had launched a new Cinnamon Toast Crunch coffee creamer, I could barely contain my excitement.

In the past, I’ve taken leftover milk from a bowl of CTC and poured it into my coffee. While it’s decent, it leaves a lot to be desired. I prefer cream in my coffee, so that little amalgam is a bit too thin for my taste.

I fantasized about how great it would taste in my cup of joe. I was hoping for a creamer that perfectly captured the essence of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. At the very least, I thought it would maybe taste like horchata (try it if you haven’t), which would be fantastic.

Nestle Coffee mate Cinnamon Toast Crunch Creamer Itself

I poured some of the creamer into a glass to try it straight-up first. There were no visible specs of cinnamon in it. “This is troubling,” I thought to myself. It smelled faintly of French toast. French toast typically has cinnamon, so I figured this was a good sign.

Alone, it tastes like a standard sweetened coffee creamer, but with a minuscule hint of cinnamon. There was no verifiable CTC flavor. It definitely didn’t have a horchata flavor either.

Nestle Coffee mate Cinnamon Toast Crunch Creamer Coffee

In coffee, it had the same effect. It made it creamier and sweeter, as is to be expected. But I could barely taste the cinnamon. If I had not known what I was drinking, there’s no way I could have guessed this was supposed to taste like Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I don’t think I could have even surmised that it was cinnamon flavored. I have had generic, store-brand cinnamon coffee creamers that taste more like my beloved cereal than this.

I feel like this would have been such an easy flavor to nail. I can’t figure out how they missed the mark so dramatically.

I’ll have to stick with pouring leftover cereal milk in my coffee for now. If I’m feeling particularly desperate, I suppose I could eat the cereal with half and half, so that the remnants make a real Cinnamon Toast Crunch creamer. I know that’s excessive, but it’s a better option than this liquid disappointment.

REVIEW: International Delight French Toast Swirl Creamer

International Delight French Toast Swirl Creamer

I’m so glad I started drinking coffee years ago.

If I didn’t, I wouldn’t be experiencing the one-upscreamership between International Delight and the popular creamer brand from Nestle that sometimes has a hyphen in its name and sometimes doesn’t. Both do collaborations with other brands. Both do unique flavors that the other doesn’t have.

Who’s winning? I don’t care. I’ll fork over my hard-earned cash for whatever either brand is peddling. The latest from International Delight is the limited time only French Toast Swirl, which promises “swirls of maple and cinnamon flavor.”

I taste cinnamon. I taste maple. I taste cream. I taste…egg?

I mean, it’s not as if there’s the taste of scrambled eggs is in my coffee, but it’s kind of like an eggy bread flavor. That combined with strong cinnamon and maple does equal to something that tastes like French toast, and it’s potent when poured into a cup of coffee. This creamer is délicieux.

International Delight French Toast Swirl Creamer Mug

Yes, eggy flavor sounds weird and it might turn some of you off, but it’s what makes this creamer stand out. Without it, it would be more of a run-of-the-mill variety. Actually, the more I think about it, and the more I drink, I realize it also reminds me of bread pudding I’ve had.

But, as someone who has tried almost every big brand and store brand creamer I can get my hands on, this coffee additive’s flavor tastes similar to another one I’ve had in the past. But after doing some thinking while sipping on a mug of coffee lightened with a healthy dose of this creamer, I couldn’t pinpoint which creamer it tastes like.

I don’t know if it’s the caffeine in my French toast-flavored coffee that’s doing the talking, but International Delight’s French Toast Swirl Creamer is tre magnifique. I enjoyed it as much as the Reese’s one, which is a variety I’ve bought numerous times since its debut in 2017.

I don’t know if my taste buds are just tired from all the different chocolate-flavored creamers recently, but this one stands out among all the varieties that have come out with the past two years from International Delight and the creamer brand from Nestle that sometimes has a hyphen in its name and sometimes doesn’t.

DISCLOSURE: I received a free sample of the product. (Thanks, International Delight!) Doing so did not influence my review in any way. Although, I can understand why you might think so with a 9 out of 10 rating. But I assure you it did not.
