If I had the foresight back in the early 1980’s, I would have taken a photo of my mom and Bridgette’s mom on the sofa during the daily “Coffee talk” because I really wish I had it for this post! They used to get together just about every afternoon for coffee….right about the time Bridgette, myself, and our two younger brothers were driving them CRAZY! They would sit and visit while we all played (or got into mischief) and by the end of the coffee pot, all was right with the world again. Back then, we didn’t know any better…..Buster Brown hair-dos were in style, Jelly shoes were the coveted item, the fun activity of the day was to ride your bike behind the mosquito man’s truck and go through the “fog” that trailed it, and you drank your coffee with cream and sugar….NO FRILLS.
Today, we know better than that! Yeah, yeah, I know Jelly shoes came back (Why?) but today’s coffee is even BETTER! While you could spend a small fortune every day at a place I like to call “Fivebucks,” you save some dough and make yourself a coffee-house-style cup for a fraction of the price right in your own kitchen with BAILEY’S! You may already be familiar with the famous Bailey’s name for their wonderful Irish Cream adult beverage, but they also have a line of seven different non-alcoholic creamers that are excellent! From the website: “People have loved the smooth, creamy richness and flavor of BAILEYS® Original Irish Cream since it was created over 30 years ago. So we thought (and soon found out we were not alone), wouldn’t it be great if people could enjoy this rich flavor in their coffee anytime they want? So we came up with BAILEYS® Coffee Creamers — delicious, non-alcoholic flavored coffee creamers, with all the quality and great taste for which BAILEYS is known.”
I got a sample of the French Vanilla and words can’t describe how good it is. It smells incredible, the consistency is just right, and the flavor excellent. Want something a little more fancy than Vanilla? BAILEY’S also has Hazelnut, The Original Irish Cream, Chocolate, Creme Brulee, Caramel, and Toffee Almond Cream. People have been adding the Original BAILEY’S to their coffee for years, but BAILEY’S coffee creamers are all socially acceptable before happy hour! My school goes back in session August 8 (ouch) and this is when I REALLY need my coffee. I can promise you there will be a bottle of BAILEY’S coffee creamer in the faculty lounge with my name on it from this day forward. This is definitely not your momma’s coffee creamer! BAILEY’S is found in the refrigerated section at your local grocery and comes in two convenient sizes.
