When I was first asked to review Bada Beans, a coffee flavoring, I was a little hesitant.
Way back when I was pregnant with Busy Girl, I developed one serious aversion to coffee (I know!), and, in particular, flavored coffees. I eventually got my coffee mojo back, but, the aversion to flavored coffees never went away.
However, since I don't mind eregular coffee with some types of flavors, like vanilla, added, I thought I'd give the Bada Beans a test.
Bada Beans are sugar free, flavored beans that are a portable coffee flavoring, like a flavored syrup alternative.. They come in cute little tins, and, there are 3 flavors: McCoy's Dream Vanilla Bean, Hazel's Nutty Hazelnut and Crazy Carl's Caramel Fudge.
When you open them up, they smell great, especially the vanilla, I'm a big vanilla fan. According to the instructions, they aren't designed to flavor a cup of black coffee, but, they work best with coffee with cream and sugar. However, I don't like sugar in my coffee, so, I decided to take my chances.
They dissolve easily, and, they indeed add a light flavoring to your coffee. It's not overpowering, and, I'm wondering what using 2 at a time might do. The vanilla was quite good, as was the hazelnut. The fudge wasn't my favorite, but, don't let that stop you from trying them out.
