I have added a new category to showcase stuff I love, new or old, and think you should know about too.
Today on "Pimp that Product", it's Coffee-Mate's Peppermint Mocha Half & Half. Oh My GOD, is this stuff delish. Lately, I have been drinking Starbucks Peppermint Mochas which, while wicked awesome, are like all Starbucks products in terms of a price point: just shy of a South Boston condo that's been re-mortgaged 3 times (inside joke).
I got the call from one of my sisters telling me about this stuff and tried it this weekend. Tastes EXACTLY the same as a Starbucks made version. And for about $2.50 a bottle to make a "bunch of cups*" of coffee at home (convenience!), it's also quite a bargain (I am cheap!).
My sister Emily has also suggested pouring it in your hot chocolate and adding whipped cream. That, quite frankly, sounds divine - especially given how cold it got today.
They got a bunch of other holiday/seasonal flavors, which I am sure are also great but this creature of habit will be sticking with the Peppermint Mocha for the winter. Also, Egg Nog = there's eggs in it, which, ...yuck.
*results based upon personal, double blind, scientific study. Bunch of cups = many.
