Coffee-Mate’s Abuelita Coffee Creamer really exceeded my expectations the first time I tried it. I’m a big fan of the original Abuelita Mexican Chocolate products and the creamer actually mananged to deliver that spicy chocolate taste with any artificial chocolate flavor. I was so encouraged by its success that I decided to try the Coffee-Mate La Lechera Dulce de Leche when I spotted it in my local grocery store. This product is another spinoff from Nestle’s lineup of Mexican inspired products and it is flavored with dulce de leche, the addictive and rich milk caramel that is made from sweetened condensed milk.
Dulce de leche itself can be dissolved in coffee, but you really need to add milk or cream to your coffee to get its flavor to stand out. With the creamer, you are ready to sweeten your coffee without using multiple ingredients. The creamer really nailed the flavor of dulce de leche, with a nice balance of sweetness and caramel flavor. Adding just a bit of creamer was enough to give my coffee a mild sweetness, while a generous pour turned a glass of iced coffee into something that tasted like it was made at a coffee house. Like the Abuelita creamer, this one didn’t disappoint and it is definitely worth a try if you’re a lover of dulce de leche and are looking for an easy way to incorporate it into your daily routine.
