Baileys Coffee Creamers are a natural spin-off from Baileys Original Irish Cream, a delicious creamy alcoholic drink. In fact there are many people who were already adding it to coffee. If you’ve ever tried Baileys, you are probably asking the question, “What took you so long?”
I came upon Baileys Coffee Creamers, which are non-alcoholic, while strolling around the Coffee and Tea Festival last month. After swigging down samples of black coffee most of the day, the coffee sample with Baileys truly had my attention. Still I dismissed its deliciousness because any creamer would taste good to me after drinking cup after cup of black sugarless coffee.
When Baileys offered to send me samples to try at home, I jumped at the chance and decided to try them under my normal daily coffee drinking conditions and also allow family members and other guests to try them as well. Not only did the creamers receive a hands-down 5 out of 5 endorsement for flavor and creaminess, they have become the coveted creamer by all who have tried them.
While I still prefer my evaporated milk sans sweeteners as my first cup in the morning, I look forward to my afternoon treat of freshly ground coffee, complete with cup and saucer, and Baileys Hazelnut Coffee Creamer. At 35 calories for 1 tablespoon, it’s an indulgence I can well afford. I find the creamer not to be overpoweringly sweet and yet full of flavor. What I love about these creamers is that you get all the flavor and deliciousness of a specialty coffee without all of the fat and calories. Have you checked the calories in your specialty drinks lately? I have and it’s not pretty, especially for an everyday treat. But with just 35 calories for a tablespoon, which is enough for me, it was a delicious experience.
Baileys Coffee Creamers currently come in four delicious flavors: Original Irish Cream with the signature Baileys’ flavor you may be familiar with, Caramel, French Vanilla and my favorite, Hazelnut. While all of the flavors contain 1.5 grams of fat per tablespoon, Hazelnut contains 35 calories, the others 40.
Other facts about Baileys Coffee Creamers:
-Contains 0 grams of lactose per 1 tablespoon serving
-Not for individuals with a MILK ALLERGY
Amazing, for just 35 calories and no alcohol I can have a delicious guilt-free drink every day of the week. Sweet!
