Comments about Harry & David 4 Vanilla Coffee Accents:
My husband and I grilled steaks with two other couples last night. After we finished eating and cleaning up, we decided to play Spades for awhile. The hostess, Gloria, asked if anyone wanted coffee and my husband and I both said that we would like a cup. When it was ready, Gloria went brought out a small container of **Harry and David 4 Vanilla Coffee Accents**. She had received a gift basket from a friend that included the vanilla coffee accents and a vanilla candle. As it turns out, Gloria soesn't like vanilla flavor or vanilla fragrance, but she thought I might, so she told me to try some and said if I liked it, I could have it because she would never use it. (She gave me the candle, too).
The small round jar of vanilla coffee accents is divided into four smaller containers of:
1. .7 ounces of Tahiti Vanilla Flavor
2. .8 ounces of French Vanilla Flavor
3. .8 ounces of Bourbon Vanilla Flavor
4. .9 ounces of Raspberry Vanilla Flavor
Last night I tried the Tahiti Vanilla in my coffee and my husband tried the Raspberry Vanilla in his. Both cups of coffee tasted delicious. They were as good as any flavored coffee I have had in any coffee shop. I usually prefer chocolate or mocha flavors, but these vanilla flavors tasted so good. This morning I used some of the French Vanilla in my coffee and I had a half of a cup of Bourbon Vanilla flavored coffee this afternoon.
It's hard to describe the differences in each flavor. They all taste like vanilla, of course, but their flavors are each very distinct. My favorite is the Tahiti Vanilla. It's a little more sweet and it tastes kind of tropical like maybe there's a hint of coconut in it. The French Vanilla tastes like many other French Vanilla coffee flavors, but better. It's not too sweet, it simply tastes delicious, like a great French Vanilla flavor should taste. The Raspberry Vanilla is my second favorite. It obviously tastes like vanilla mixed with just the perfect amount of raspberry to give it a fruity and zingy twist. The Bourbon Vanilla is the strongest of the four. I like it, but it has a very rich, almost nutty kind of flavor. It's not bitter, but does leave a slight aftertaste. I have never drank bourbon, so I don't know if that's what it tastes like, but I suppose this flavorit must be similar to the taste of bourbon.
It's very easy to use the vanilla flavors in your coffee. The directions are: "For a cup of coffee, use 1/4 to 1/2 of a teaspoon per 8 ounces of coffee. For a pot of coffee, you sprinkle 1/4 to 1/2 of a teaspoon of the flavor on top of the coffee grounds for each cup that you are brewing."
I hate it that Gloria doesn't like vanilla, but it was very nice of her to give me the **Harry and David 4 Vanilla Coffee Accents** and the vanilla scented candle, too. I love the vanilla accents and will enjoy my coffee and think of her when I use them. I can hardly wait for morning so that I can have have a cup of Raspberry Vanilla Accented coffee. It's going to be so good.
