When we came across Flavour Creations’ coffee flavoring tablets in an attractive, conveniently pocket-sized metal case, it was a blinding revelation of the obvious: why hadn’t someone come up with this great idea before?
Coffee flavorings have been popular since Starbucks mushroomed throughout America, enticing us to add a shot of flavored syrup to our java.
The bottled flavored syrups used by specialty coffee shops— which are available in sugar-free flavors as well as regular—aren’t sold in consumer channels. Even if they were, you’re probably not going to tote around a 750 ml. bottle. But Flavour Creations has rather brilliantly solved the problem by concentrating all of the flavor provided by syrups into a tiny tablet that you just pop into your coffee, and voilà!
(We generally drink our coffee with milk, no sugar, and loved the enhancement of the Flavour Creations tablets without any added sweetener. When we added Splenda®, we liked it sweetened, too, because it was so much less sweet than the syrups.)
At just $2.99 for a tin of 48 tablets, you can try all eight flavors and have fun with them:
Brew one pot of coffee and let everyone chooser his/her own flavor
Become a mixologist: combine tablets to create your own “signature blend”
Add zing to diet hot cocoas and other beverages
Add to other dishes—there are recipes on the website for Banana Breakfast Smoothie, Mocha Dessert Sauce, and Almond Tiramisu Parfait that will inspire you to create your own
And, you can crush tablets to stir into cold beverages (or dissolve them in a teaspoon of hot water).
Plus, at $2.99 a tin, for the price of a shot at Starbucks you can make your own specialty cup every day for six weeks!
