“Thanks a Latte!” with Coffee-Mate Natural Bliss

Today is bittersweet.  It is my youngest daughter’s last day of her very first year at “big girl school.”  I am definitely ready for a lighter schedule, but days like these make me want to hold her a little bit tighter and make time go more slowly.  We could not be happier with the school we have chosen for our daughters and the teachers have far exceeded my expectations.  My four year old can count to 100, recognize all of her letters, knows many prayers and nursery rhymes, speaks a little French, has begun doing simple addition and is very close to reading. 
 

Because her teachers went above and beyond to make her first year a positive experience, I wanted to say, “Thanks a Latte!” on her last day with a special gift basket.  I headed to Walmart to get supplies for the surprise and found a multitude of items to include.  We started with the obvious…coffee!  Here in New Orleans, even though the choices of coffee are expansive, we always reach for the local brand of Community Coffee.  Next, I picked out an insulated tumbler for iced coffee, some tea and of course some snacks (what’s coffee without a treat, right?).

 
 
There was only one thing missing…creamer!  In my experience, creamer can add so much flavor to a beverage.  The options are almost endless as I quickly learned turning onto the creamer aisle!  I have been a long time fan of Coffee-Mate products and have loved the flavors in the Cafe Collection including Hazelnut and Mocha.  But recently, I learned that Coffee-Mate has added Natural Bliss to it’s already huge selection.
 
 
The Natural Bliss collection from Coffee-Mate includes Vanilla Latte, Caramel, Sweet Cream and Low Fat Vanilla.  What it doesn’t include is a ton of ingredients…it’s all natural!  I immediately focused on the Caramel varitey and learned that at only 35 calories per serving, it contains only nonfat milk, heavy cream, sugar and natural flavors.  I couldn’t wait to give it a try and let me tell you, it was delicious and comforting to be able to pronounce everything in the nutritional information.  If you want to check out the Coffee-Mate Natural Bliss “like” them on Facebook, make sure to print the coupon first and head straight to Walmart!
 
 
Arriving at home, I assembled the gift baskets which cost less that $20 a piece!  My daughter delivered them this morning with a big smile exclaiming, “Thanks a Latte!”  If you would like to see my entire #NaturalBlissWM shopping trip, check out my path to purchase Google + story!
