Taste Test

This is the second week in a row that I've actually taken something being handed out at Columbus Circle on my way into the subway. After a few months of living in the city I quickly realized that the majority of people standing on corners handing out material were giving out junk. Just walk half a block away from these individuals and you find a trash can full of their flyers.

All the same, I found myself taking todays product. Part of the appeal was the size, it was clearly more than a cheap advertisement. I mean it was red, shiny, and a bit was also pretty much placed right into my hand.

It turns out it was a small package and full of coffee for me to try! Nescafe is promoting their new instant coffee, and from the ad above, can you tell what they are comparing it to?

I opted for the vanilla flavor first and as soon as I opened the package I realized it wasn't normal instant coffee, the smell was amazing. As I poured hot water over the instant mix, the smell intensified, something I usually only experience with brewed coffee. Regarding flavor, it wasn't bad, I don't think I would be able to drink it black (which is often how I like my coffee); but with a bit of agave syrup and milk and it was pretty darn good. Luckily I still have 5 more packets to try out :)

Enjoy your Friday,
