Almond Joy

I hope your weekend is off to a great start. Mine is.

In part, because of this Almond Joy Coffee Creamer

Almond Joy Coffee Creamer International Delight

I have been eying it for weeks at the grocery store but purposely did not buy it because it sounded like something I would really like. A little too much.

As suspected, I like it.

No wait, I love it.

It tastes just like the filling of an Almond Joy candy bar. There’s no chocolate added and it’s heavily coconut-infused, with a hint of toasted almond flavor, and it’s sweet.

It’s like pouring a chocolate-less Almond Joy candy bar into your coffee and it’s for the serious coconut lover.

I need to wash my coffee down with a Mounds Bar Chocolate Coconut Cake Mix Cookie and I’ll be all set.

I prefer Mounds bars for eating, but for drinking, I’ll happily drank some Almond Joy.

Do you have any favorite flavored coffee creamers?

I know they’re not for everyone. That’s okay; more for me.

My never-get-tired-of-it and always have at least 2 jugs on hand is Coffee-Mate French Vanilla. For vanilla, I strongly prefer Coffee-Mate to International Delights.

For Peppermint, this is my favorite but it’s hard to find year-round (only at Target, and only in a small size – in my area). The International Delights York Peppermint Pattie is good, and easily found, but I do prefer the Coffee-Mate Peppermint

Ironically, I love flavored creamers but I don’t like flavored coffee. I like to be able to doctor up plain coffee with creamers, while leaving the coffee itself unflavored. Plus, running flavored beans through my pot makes the next few pots taste like whatever flavor was brewed.

Enjoy your weekend – with an extra cup of coffee and hopefully some gorgeous weather. It’s a perfect San Diego day.

  1. Wow. Almond flavor in coffee. I can’t wait to try this. Where do you think I can buy some Almond Joy? I’m from a different country from you.

    1. Not sure…I’d check their website and see if you can find out more info about purchasing locations.

  2. When I wasn’t vegan I LIVED for almond joys… Best candy, hands down. I used to trade all my other Halloween candy for them! Nothing beats the combo of coconut and almond!

    1. You’d think they could make them’s coconut and chocolate. But I’m sure there is milk in the filling mixture of some sort, i.e. sweetened cond milk or something like that. Hope you get your fix!

      1. HI. Almond flavor in a coffee. Simply delicious. This would be a great treat.

  3. Love Almond Joys :) One of my favorite candies growing up. I’m definitely going to have to give this creamer a try!

  4. I’ve been wanting to try those new flavors of creamers, white chocolate mocha? yes please!

  5. Almond Joy and Mounds are my favorite Halloween candy bars to buy to hand out to kiddies… because it means that’s what I get to snack on. ;)

    I most often just use almond milk in my coffee but if I make iced coffee I love using creamers. Right now I have a coffee mate white chocolate caramel latte flavor, so good!

    1. So true about HWeen candy. If there’s going to be extra, it better be something I don’t mind having extra of :)

  6. I have never used flavoured creamers before … I drink my coffee straight up :-)

  7. I am not sure what happened to my comment I posted few hours ago. Google has some issues today, could be the reason. Anyway, I use a little cream in my coffee on those rare occasions I have it. :)

      1. I heard that Google has been hacked today, issues with leaving comments, opening webpages, etc.

  8. I’ve come to realize that the only flavored coffees that I consistently like are vanilla and caramel. Otherwise, every thing else is either hit or miss for me. I am with you on flavored creamers, though! I am a pure sucker for the International Delight flavors. I got lucky with coupons a couple of months ago, and now I have more Almond Joy, Cinnabon, and Hershey’s Chocolate Caramel creamers than I know what to do with – yum! ;)
