I recently tried Peppermint Chocolate Truffle and Pumpkin Pie Spice liquid coffee creamer, two of the new seasonal flavors, for free compliments of BzzAgent and International Delight.

I found the Peppermint Chocolate Truffle to be comparable to the powdered Peppermint Mocha creamer I usually use, but didn't like Pumpkin Pie. I've not been one of those girls to jump on the Pumpkin flavor wagon during the fall. To test both flavors independently and failry, I made two cups of coffee. I used the vanilla flavor from a very popular coffee company as my base coffee. Both cups were made with the identical measurements of water, coffee grounds and neither had added sugar or flavorings beyond the vanilla.
"The rich taste of chocolate meets festive peppermint."
Sweet. Minty. Slightly bitter, but totally tolerable as is. Took four tablespoons to flavor enough to suit my taste despite serving size of 1tbsp. This flavor tasted good warm or cold, but I preferred cold.
"A creamy swirl of seasonal spice flavors inspired by pumpkin pie."
Faintly reminiscent of pumpkin pie. Primarily taste notes of cinnamon and cream. Flavor seemed to change upon repetitive tasting. Took four tablespoons to flavor enough to suit my taste despite serving size of 1tbsp. This flavor tasted better warm.
My only true complaint is that both contain chemicals such as polysorbate 60 and carrageenan and who knows what via 'natural and artificial flavors'. I mean come on, it's kinda fishy when both have identical ingredients yet taste so different. Yet, take out the chemicals and Peppermint Chocolate Truffle just might be a favorite! Until then, I'll stick with my former brand or just drink peppermint tea! What about you? Do you like pumpkin pie seasonal flavors?? Do they remind you of the holidays?
