Coffee Mate Liquid CreamerCoffee Mate Formula Change


Coffee Mate has changed their formula to a nasty chemical tasting blend. They used to be the best, but when you write them, they acknowledge the issue but don't say if they're going to change back to the original formula.

    They taste fine to me, im sure they had a good reason for changing the formula. Did you ask why they changed it?

    i totally agree! they've added more sodium to the non fat and it leaves a bitter aftertaste...bring back the regular non fat french vanilla!!

    I am deeply disappointed that they chose to change the formula. I have been a BIG fan for years. This morning I was looking forward to my coffee and opened a new container of the Sugar Free French Vanilla. YUCK!!! What a let down. I will now have to try the "other" company's version of this...which I remember not liking as much as Nestle's but what choice do I have now????

    I have noticed the after taste in the Cinnamon Vanilla and the Italian Sweet Cream. But the Cinnamon Bun I recently purchased doesn't have the problem. Of course it could be pre-formulation change, as it had a foil closure as well. I sure hope the new plastic closures aren't using a lubricant or something that is creating the off-taste

    I agree! I noticed a difference right away with the Original low fat and their fat free -ick! Bring back the original formula, please!
