I going to have to start drinking my coffee black.

Yeah, I know, a real man would be drinking it black anyway.

Hood Country Creamer used to be $1.89/qt. at Stop and Shop. Well, at least that's what it was pre-pandemic. Occasionally it would go on sale for $1.69. Lately it's been creeping up. First it went to $2.29, then $2.69. Then to $3.29. Well today I almost did the proverbial double-take as I saw it for $3.89.

Maybe if I start drinking it black, I'll cut back as a result.

Just saw an Arby's ad.

Their classic roast beef sandwich that used to be advertised as 4 for $5 is now 4 for $10.

Real Men don't drink coffee - they grind the beans with their teeth.

(students use to think I was a badass because I chewed Bustelo Instant coffee. I just didn't have any hot water in my classroom)

Buy it by the half gallon if possible (I think it has a really long shelf life).

My usual choice is sugar free Coffeemate French Vanilla.

A quart at Walmart is $3.98, a half gallon is $6.48.

I purchased a frother a couple of years back and now my homemade coffees are always lattes. Milk is (comparatively) cheap and I always have some on hand anyway.



It is what it is.

They're 2 for $6 in our part NC. They can keep them.

Out of curiosity, why does anyone use creamer instead of cream or half and half? Just wondering.....

And yet milk prices paid to the dairy farmers have fallen about 25% to $19.75/100#.

Dairy farmers never learn. The price ran up to about $26/100# and they start tacking on more cows, then it's right back down again. I married into a dairy family 35 years. Two years ago they were needing $16-17/100# to break even but the price of everything to get the milk out is way up.

For me, it tastes much better in my Folger's that's brewed in my Cuisinart.

I used to always buy half & half but switched several years ago.

I’m not a coffee guy but buying cheep coffee to put in an expensive coffee maker sounds funny. I’ve had Folgers and a person would definitely need something to cover up the taste.

For me, it's the difference in their respective fat content, calories, and shelf life. Every little bit I can reduce helps, although creamer and half and half are pretty close.
