If you haven’t already heard, Coffeemate recently introduced two new coffee creamers: Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Funfetti. When this news hit in December I could not wait to try the Cinnamon Toast Crunch. The sweet, cinnamon flavored cereal milk is always a delight after eating a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch and now that is available in the form of coffee creamer.
Coffeemate announced in December that the creamer would start appearing in store starting January 2020. With that knowledge I started my search for this gem. Every time I visited a grocery store, I searched high and low for the creamer without any luck. I finally found the Funfetti creamer at Walmart but I did not want to settle. After reaching out to Coffeemate on Instagram, they instructed me to look at my local Target or Kroger. So, I directed my search efforts to Target.
Alas, I found it! On a routine Target run, I finally came across the Coffeemate Cinnamon Toast Creamer. Once at home, I popped open the seal on this bad boy and took in the sweet smell of cinnamon and cream. The creamer passed the smell test for sure. To my surprise, cinnamon did not overpower the creamer and there was a nice balance with the sweet cream.
Okay it smells good, so what? All we care about is the taste. I brewed a capsule of vanilla-flavored coffee in my Nespresso and added a healthy portion of the creamer. On a scale of black coffee to complete milk, I enjoy a balanced coffee to cream ratio. I took a sip and embarked on a flashback to my childhood when I would drink the leftover cinnamon sugar milk from my cereal bowl.
The Coffeemate Cinnamon Toast Crunch creamer hits the nail on its head. I love that the cinnamon flavor does not overpower the entire coffee. You truly do experience more of a sweet, cinnamon milk experience. If you’ve ever tried horchata, that what I can closely compare this coffee creamer to. Nevertheless, if you want to Cinnamon Toast Crunch experience you should definitely give this creamer a try.
