Sweet Caramel

A coworker brought me a little surprise the other day. She picked up these little sweet treats at Nutters and gave me a couple packs to try.

I take my coffee black as adding sugar and cream, while delicious, add so many extra and unnecessary calories to your morning caffeine fix. If I'm looking for a sweet fix, I keep some packets of Stevia in my desk at work but I may just be hooked on these little delights. Before pouring in my coffee I decided to try a little taste first. I nearly died. So much caramel sweetness. Half of a package is a perfect amount for one cup and even tastes delicious in a cup of Keurig brewed French Vanilla.

It's not quite the same as my frappachino or latte addictions from Starbucks, but those are only once in awhile treats and the Krisda Cafe Caramel will make a fine substitute in the mean time. They even come in almond and vanilla flavors, which I may have to pick up now.

Speaking of Starbucks: from now until May 15 it's Frappachino Happy Hour (1/2 price frapps!) from 3-5pm. I've been finding it very hard not to go everyday now that they have my ultimate favorite the Mocha Coconut, which I discovered only previously existed in Hawaii. I'm holding out until my weekend cheat day but I'm dreaming about it daily until then. If only they didn't have calories.....
My daily fix in Hawaii


  1. starbucks is soo good, but so bad at the same time for calories! I have never had a frap. i but i LOOOOVE green tea lattes (with the matcha green tea powder) it rocks my socks, but still like 300 calories, kind of ridiculous, thats why its a weekend treat.

  2. If you love green tea lattes, there is a green tea frappachino for cold days! I've never had that particular flavor though. Why can't starbucks just be healthy! haha

  3. seriously! OMG i might have to treat myself one day to that! bahaha.
    I wish it was all taste no calories :(

  4. bummer, my comments got erased. but i am glad blogger is back up and running, so that you can keep posting! and tell me what i am staying tuned for! i'm dying to know ha
