    FYI: Coffee drinkers: Bailey's Irish Creamers...

    Are now offered in non-alcohol flavors. Saw a TV commercial for it. Maybe
    six or eight different flavors.

    I don't drink coffee so I can't vouch for their suitability as creamers.

    An acquaintance used to put the alcohol version of the original in his
    morning coffee. Now if he wants to, he can drive to work sober.

    I've seen these at the grocery store but haven't tried them yet.

    That stuff has been around for years. My local 7-11 used to have it
    in individual package along with the regular cream for the morning
    coffee cuppers. You could sample it that way instead of buying a
    whole carton.

    The Baileys packaging was in attractive bottled jars. Airplane cocktail
    sized, it appeared.

    No mention if they are a refrigerated product like milk.

    I only drink coffee a couple of times a month. I take it black, no sugar,
    no cream(er). When I have tried those dried creamer products I wasn't
    impressed. Why would I want to put powdered crap in my coffee?

    There was a bar in Memphis (circa 1979 or so) called Todd's. It was in
    Clarke Tower on Poplar Avenue. (Where's Wayne Boatwright? I'll bet he'd
    remember this place.) I remember they had a tree growing in the middle of
    the bar. A girlfriend and I used to go there every couple of weeks or so
    just to have a couple of drinks and unwind. It was a quiet place. We'd
    play backgammon and just sit and talk. It was a business person's type of
    place. No disco music, no loud chatter, no one trying to hit on anyone. It
    was just a nice, quiet place. And before we left we'd always ordered Todd's
    Coffee. It was hot coffee in a tall glass with a shot (or so) of brandy,
    topped with whipped cream and shaved chocolate. It was delicious!

    Where I worked in TN they went all out as far as coffee goes. In the break
    room they had flavoured creamers (the little individual liquid ones), they
    had jugs of coffee syrups. They had regular Bunn coffee machines. But they
    also had one of those machines where you pop in a packet, push a button and
    60 seconds later you have a cup of coffee. They spent so much money on
    coffee and things to put in your coffee... it's no wonder they couldn't
    afford to give anyone a raise. LOL

    Jill,

    OK, now I'm jealous, all over again!

    A motel I stayed in on my last vacation had one of those, so I tried
    it. The coffee was hohum at best, so I'm not understanding why people
    go orgasmic every time it's mentioned here. Do people really make
    such bad coffee that ordinary seems wonderful to them?

    I didn't understand it. It was instant coffee and obviously very expensive.
    <shrug> I wasn't impressed. But then, I'm not really a coffee drinker.

    Maybe we're talking about two different things. I was talking about
    the one that uses real ground coffee in pre-measured containers. It's
    not freeze dried or instant coffee. You put the unopened container
    into the coffee maker with the cup where a carafe would be and add
    water to the reservoir; the coffee maker punctures the cup and makes
    drip coffee.

    I was talking about something like a Kerig (sp?) coffee machine. Little
    pouches that you insert to brew a cup in 60 seconds. I tasted awful.

    That's the one. I guess they've changed to cups now.
