Coffee is one of the most popular drinks this world has ever seen. As far as our modern generation goes, it’s practically indispensable. Among most adults, it’s a drink that gets consumed almost daily, and for many adults, multiple times a day at that. With a drink as popular as it is, it makes sense that eventually products would get made to enhance it—such as creamer. But is creamer really that necessary for coffee?
Turns Coffee Into a Dessert
Let’s call it as we see it. Creamer can be incredibly delicious when applied to coffee, but it’s really just a glorified dessert. When we add it to our coffee, it’s not because we “need” it to help keep us awake. No, we already have the coffee itself for that. The creamer gives us that sugar rush—that sweet, dessert-like taste that we can get away with at nine in the morning because it’s “part of the coffee experience”.
Yeah, But Who Cares?
With all of that being said, there’s always the “yeah, but who cares” argument. Hey, if you’re loving it, and it’s working for you, then have at it! Coffee creamers can truly elevate your coffee to the next level. If you were going to add sugar anyway, then you might as well make it a creamer instead.
All we ask is that you be aware of what you’re doing. Especially if you’re trying to watch your sugar intake, this may be something that’s bringing you down in secret.
