Pumpkin Spice Coffee-Mate: I likes!



It's like drinking a slice of coffee-flavored pumpkin pie!

My girlfriend loves this stuff.

Haven't they released a few of holiday-themed flavors recently? I saw a minty one when I was getting the pumpkin one, but I didn't take the time to check 'em out.

I know they at least have a peppermint flavor and also a gingerbread one. I'm kinda curious about the latter.

Holy crap! If that tastes anything like the pumpkin spice flavoring at Starbucks, I'll buy a case of the stuff.

It smells a lot like it, at least. I refuse to actually taste it so I can't really comment any further than that.

Hmmm. Interesting. But I (almost) always drink my coffee black. If not, I usually made a cafe au lait (a version of caffe latte, with the difference that a latte uses espresso while a cafe au lait use ordinary coffee). Any creamer made the coffee tastes weird.

My wife was raving about this so I tried a little of her drink at Starbucks and almost gagged. Blech.

It's a seasonal flavor. They probably don't want to add it to their page when it's going to be gone in 3 months.

My wife likes the Pumpkin one. We bought but haven't opened the peppermint, and havn't found the Gingerbread.

I prefer Creme Brulee flavor myself.

It's that time of year again. Didn't see any pumpkin spice flavored Coffee Mate at the store, but I did find some International Delight creamer. Tastes just as good.

The Starbucks gift card that I got in my stocking last Christmas has remained unused in anticipation of their pumpkin spice coffee. I just may have to go there this weekend.

They never have sugar free in the specialty flavors. But them this and a Starbucks pumpkin creme cheese muffin might be the death of me this year.

Yeah, I know. I've cut refined sugar out of pretty much my whole diet, but this is one area where I make an exception. I only have coffee on the weekends - 2 cups on Saturday, 2 cups on Sunday - so I don't think it's all that bad in the long run.

mmm. I LOVE starbucks pumpkin spice lattes. A little pricey, so I bought some of these this week. The fiancee really likes the gingerbread lattes. I don't think they come back to Starbucks until November, but I know she's waiting for them!

Mix the two and you're golden. I normally bring a thermos full of this stuff to work most of the cold months.

Wow, I didn't even know that coffee existed. I'll be heading to the store after work. Thanks!

Heh heh. A lot of people have coffee to go along with their desserts, so you could look at it like you are just combining the two. Efficienceny, baby.

Me too but I like the Crème Brûlée as well. Do they not offer the Amaretto flavor in powdered form anymore?

I finally found the Millstone pumpkin spice coffee (no pre-ground stocked; had to grind my own at the store) and tried the combo. Dear. Sweet. Lord.

"I wish it were winter so we could freeze it into ice blocks and skate on it and melt it in the spring time and drink it!"

I brewed some Millstone Pumpkin Spice this morning, such a good scent to have in the apartment.

Are there any calories in a coffee like that?

No calories in the coffee, at least I've never seen and calories in a flavored coffee.

I really need to find this Millstone Pumpkin Spice coffee. I've found the pumpkin spice cream but I use is sparingly because of the sugar. I probably wouldn't need to use as much if the actual coffee was flavored as well.

Kroger and Wal*Mart (at least in my area) carry a large selection of Millstone coffees.
