When I first began drinking coffee in my second year of university, I could only tolerate cappuccinos, with lots of sugar, or instant flavoured coffee. Then I moved on to flavoured coffees from Second Cup (Butter Pecan was my fav) and eventually I graduated to "real" coffee. In fact, I haven't been able to stomach flavoured coffees for the past 10 years as I've developed a more discerning palate.
So I don't have any clue what made me pick up a package of President's Choice Candy Cane Coffee, which is in stores now for the holiday season. Curiosity, I suppose?
I liked that it is flavoured naturally and doesn't contain any creepy ingredients.
This morning I brewed some. The verdict? Imagine eating coffee grinds right after you have brushed your teeth! Disgusting! I immediately cleaned out my coffee maker with vinegar to get any remaining flavour out of it. Gross...totally gross!
Back to my organic, dark roast.
UPDATE (Dec. 10/11): The package says if you are not satisfied with the product you can return it for a full refund. True to their word, I got my money back for it. I still love you Loblaws!
