Hot off the presses>>>>Skinny Cow has just introduced an all new line of ready to drink Skinny Cow Creamy Iced Coffees! Yummy and Caffeine-y (if that is not already a word it needs to be), could this mama ask for anything more?
Nope. I have a family I love but some days I just need a wee bit of caffeine to actually like them. Problem is I don’t actually like coffee. Lattes, iced coffee, tea, iced lattes, sure but coffee, no thanks. Even the smell of coffee in the morning makes my tummy turn. I have just never developed the taste for it.
I will usually start my day with an iced coffee so I was pretty excited to try the new Skinny Cow Creamy Iced Coffees. First up was the Mocha Latte, sadly 90% of it was spilled during a tragic blogging related accident. (read-knocked over onto my cream colour carpet while taking pictures-see here). Immediately, moved onto the Vanilla Latte flavour. I found them both quite sweet so I added a smidgen of milk to them and that solved that. I then forgot I had the Creamy Cappuccino in my fridge. It was like I had won the lotto when I re-discovered it the other day. And it was my favourite of the three, so that was a good day.
The Skinny Cow Creamy Iced Coffees come in individual bottles which can be bought as singles or in 4-packs. They are shelf stable so you can stock up on them without loosing precious fridge real-estate. The portion size is perfect for an on the go treat without the expensive trip to the coffee shop.
They also have added two Skinny Cow Blissful Truffle Candy Bars to their line up of ‘impossibly good’ treats. I tried both the Milk and Dark chocolate flavours and again for me I found the milk chocolate too sweet but I enjoyed the dark chocolate. I really appreciate that they are an indulgent treat without all the calories.
Sadly, Skinny Cow didn’t even attempt to mail me a sample of their new Chocolate Dipped Ice Cream Bars. I am pretty sure with this Canadian winter we are experiencing they would have been just fine in transit, LOL. They do sound yummy though and they are made with low fat ice cream, which is a bonus. Come summer time I may have to search them out.
For me I would definitely grab the Creamy Cappuccino iced coffee again. If it was on sale, and I had a coupon and it was on one of my coupon apps I might even grab several boxes! Which is a big deal because I can’t do that with the refrigerated brands but I have lots of room in my pantry. And anything that helps me survive the morning with little people is a good thing!
Do you need caffeine to start your day?
