    Coffee creamer is the one thing I've pretty much refused to give up or cut out or replace. I've tried a few things along the way:
    Fat free half and half and Splenda (this was the best of the "alternatives" IMO
    Vanilla almond milk and Splenda
    Just some of either of the above

    I have found a half and half with flavor at Trader Joe's, that has a FEW less calories than the non-dairy varieties, but not a huge difference (since I tend to like, well, a LOT of it).

    I was having issues with our other creamer. When I looked at the ingredients I understood why. It wasn’t even milk. It was a bunch of sugar and flavorings. I tried a few different kinds of creamer that were minimal and natural ingredients and finally came to the one I liked and didn’t make me feel sick.

    In what ways are Coffeemate(TM) flavored creamers awful for you?

    May I ask why you added the (TM) ?

    Probably because it is a proprietary trademarked name for a specific non dairy coffee additive.

    Yes, I know what TM stands for and that coffeemate is a product name, but I don’t understand the use of “(TM)” on the mfp forums. This isn’t going to be used as a business proposal or a deposition.

    True but perhaps the poster is in patent law. It seems a silly thing to complain about. What difference does it make if it is used or not?

    Was I complaining? 🤔

    I was being sassy.

    Well, perhaps I should clarify the sassy-ness. I just think it's funny that it was clarified as "coffeemate" creamers rather than something like "packaged coffee creamers". I probably should have suggested something like International Delight to follow through on my poor excuse of a joke.


    Oh ok I gotchya. That makes more sense now 😉

    HELP, I’m addicted to Coffeemate flavored creamers and I can’t enjoy coffee w/o it. But I know it’s really awful for you 😞 What are some healthy ways you successful MFP-ers sweeten your coffee?

    Are you concerned about Coffeemate (the brand), or creamer (the product/concept)?

    The brand I'm using at the moment is called International Delight. The label suggests a 1 tablespoonful serving contains 35 calories and 1.5g Fat. Not sure what you watch most, but those aren't big "bad for you" numbers.

    I use Walden Farms. It took a bit to get use to it, but love it now. I get it at the local gym. No calories and no fat.

    Assuming that is you in your avatar, you are too young to remember the commercials for "Sanka brand decaffeinated coffee". A bit of a cumbersome phrase.

    It's not me, but I think I'm still too young to know the commercial! I'm '87.

    Right now my coffee has cashew milk and one of the sugar free torani syrups. I even got myself a little milk frother, so my coffee is fancy af.

    half and half with toriani syryp - right now a chocolate and raspberry mix - I am only having it on the weekends or when I need a major pick me up - google recipes low carb - it will give you ideas for homemade vanilla and also peppermint mocha for the holiday ;-)
