A good creamer can make or break your cup of coffee. From seasonals to staples, there are so many different creamers on the market, it can be hard to navigate them all. Here is a guide to 10 coffee creamers you need to try in your morning or afternoon-pick-me-up cup of coffee, with options for all different likes and dairy preferences!
Cookies ‘n Cocoa, Coffee-Mate
This one screams Christmas morning, and I love it. One of Coffee-Mate’s 2020 seasonal coffee creamers, this addition to your morning cup of Joe is sure to transport you to Christmas morning regardless of what day it is. The bottle features chocolate chip cookies, so the chocolatey taste of this creamer isn’t too over bearing, but rather just enough. Bonus points if you drink this one with a plate of cookies next to you!
Pumpkin Pie Spice, International Delight
The Pumpkin Pie Spice creamer by International Delight is sure to satisfy all your fall pumpkin cravings. Like drinking a cup of pumpkin pie, this one is close to giving Starbucks a run for their money (although, more on Starbucks later…). If you want to make it taste even more like the real thing, add a dollop of whipped cream on top and sprinkle some cinnamon, just like you would a slice of pumpkin pie! It doesn’t get any more festive than this, folks.
Buddy The Elf Peppermint Mocha, International Delight
Part of International Delight’s 2020 line of coffee creamers, Buddy the Elf himself is on the packaging of the peppermint mocha coffee creamer. I love peppermint mocha around holiday times. Something about a warm cup of coffee with peppermint mocha in it is so comforting and warms my soul. Peppermint mocha in general works very well in coffee, as the minty peppermint adds a bit of a spice, if you will, to the coffee, and the mocha adds the sweetness everyone knows and loves. To take this coffee to the next step, unwrap a candy cane and swirl it around your coffee for even more of an authentic peppermint flavor.
Caramel Toffee, Coffee-Mate
This almond creamer is part of the Natural Bliss line of Coffee-Mate and deserves a lot more recognition. Almond creamers are much lighter on the stomach, and give your drink a little added flavor that normal dairy creamers don’t. Some consider caramel toffee a fall flavor, but I think this can be added to your coffee all year round. The little bit of saltiness from the toffee combines perfectly with the sweetness of the caramel, to make this a cup of coffee anyone can enjoy.
Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Coffee-Mate
Inspired by everyone’s childhood favorite cereal, add a spice of cinnamon to your morning cup of coffee for some added sugar that reminds you of your childhood. I think this creamer really hit it out of the park in terms of uniqueness and ability to grab anyone’s attention in the grocery store. Let’s be honest, after you finished your bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, the milk that was sugary from the cinnamon was so good. This is like, the even better version of that to add to your coffee! At the same time of this release, Coffee-Mate also released a Funfetti (like the cake) coffee creamer, which also deserves a mention.
Forget just yogurt, Chobani has also expanded into the world of coffee creamers. With the Chobani name on it, this coffee creamer is smooth and creamy, and compliments any cup of coffee. With a classic flavor of vanilla, like the Chobani yogurts, you can’t go wrong with this flavor. This coffee creamer is made naturally from their yogurt process, according to the Chobani website, and with only natural ingredients, this coffee creamer consists of less than five ingredients!
Pumpkin Spice Latte, Starbucks
Okay, yes we also love a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte. But what about for those days when you don’t feel like going out for a coffee, and want to make something comparable at home? The Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte coffee creamer is as close as you’ll get to the real thing. I can’t be sure it’s the same thing they use in store, or else I’m sure nobody would ever visit a Starbucks again, but man it sure is close enough for me.
Irish Creme, Bailey’s
Let me preface this with, yes this is a non-alcoholic coffee creamer. But that shouldn’t steer you away from it! Bailey’s is known for their smooth drinks, and this is no exception. Add this creamer to your coffee, and maybe slip a little bit of something else in it as well to make it a true Bailey’s, and you’re all set! On the Bailey’s website, there is a whole section dedicated to recipes you can use their products in, and some of them use coffee! From hot coffee, to affogato, to iced coffee, to flat whites, Bailey’s has got the spiked-coffee game down to a science.
Sweet Creme, Almond Breeze
Another one that’s great for the Almond milk lovers, this Sweet Creme coffee creamer by Almond Breeze again is a staple for anyone who prefers Almond Milk. The richness of the sweet creme flavor will make any coffee blend you’re drinking much more creamy and taste like a dessert. Truly a fan favorite of all almond milk lovers.
Say what you want about Dunkin’, but when it comes to those coffee swirls they put in their coffee, they’ve got it perfected. The Hazelnut coffee creamer by Dunkin’ is almost exactly the same as when they make it perfectly in the drive thru. Now anyone who knows me knows I am a Dunkin’ lover, and in no way does this replace the real thing. Because something about Dunkin’, it’s a great coffee every time, and there is nothing that replaces it’s perfection, this is a close enough way to make your cup of Dunkin’ coffee from your home.
