trying a little nescafe... (and giveaway)

if your new year's resolutions included saving money this year, i have a treat to tell you about.  you may believe you are addicted to a certain coffee chain's expensive coffee (maybe even their instant variety) but now you can take advantage of an affordable new option: nescafe taster's choice now offers single-serve packets. 

these packets are available in 5 delectable options:   decaf, original roast, 100% colombian, vanilla and hazelnut.  while i have given these samples a try and enjoyed the ease and availability of the instant single-serve packet, i was most curious what bill's response to the coffee would be.  he is the true coffee connoisseur.  i'm can't tell much difference in any of the coffees i drink.  bill has never been interested in instant coffee, and knows exactly which kind of roast and blend he prefers.

he is actually really enjoying the instant option.  he likes the taste, although he cautions that you need to stick to the recommended 8 ounces of water or it tastes too watered down. 

i think these packets are great to have for on-the-go (assuming you are going somewhere with hot water available of course!), and they are a much more affordable option, especially than the chain-store instant brand.

if you think this is something you would like to try, you can get a free sample here.  or, you are welcome to leave a comment here.  i am giving away a set of sample packs along with a nescafe mug to enjoy them in.  leave a comment here telling me your favorite hot drink, and i will draw a winner next monday.  this is for united state residents only (sorry beloved canadians!).  please make sure i have your email address so i can get your address if you win.

i received some sample packets of nescafe single-serve variety to try out for this review.  regardless, the opinions expressed here are purely my own and bill's.  we would seriously tell you if we didn't like it; but we do, so we can recommend them to you with honesty and integrity.


  1. My favorite hot drink is a fresh cup of dark Columbian coffee :) *Thanks* for the giveaway!

  2. My very favorite hot drink is English Breakfast tea...but I would still love to win the Taster's Choice sample pack.
    Great giveaway!
