Coffee-Mate Natural Bliss Coffee Creamer

Well, that didn't take long...

 In direct response to La Creme Real Dairy Creamer,  Coffee-Mate has just hit the shelves with their own version of a Clean Eating coffee creamer.

The label doesn't  indicate anywhere that the milk used for this product is organic or not treated with hormones - so that definitely places it a rung below La Creme automatically.

The taste, however, is much more like that Coffee-Mate French Vanilla flavoring you are used to if you have a hard time getting rid of the "Bad Stuff" liquid Coffee-Mate - and a lot less heavy cream taste like La Creme has. The French vanilla flavor is well developed, too.

The down side? 5 grams of sugar per tablespoon, and 1.5 grams of fat in that tablespoon. Border food at the very least.

I like the taste, and the French vanilla flavor is more pleasing to me than La Creme - but honestly? The fact that it isn't organic is a thumbs down - as is the sugar. However, I can see people who dislike the strong cream note in La Creme to like Natural Bliss better. It is much more like the regular old Coffee-Mate liquid that I stopped putting in my coffee than I expected. If you aren't familiar with what exactly non-dairy creamer really is - read this.
