I decided to take the Tasters Choice Challenge this week Y’all, and being an avid coffee drinker that spends a ton of cash at an unnamed coffee shop, I am totally glad I did. You are probably wondering what is this challenge is all about huh? NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® challenged several of us bloggers and others to give up our overpriced coffees for one week and try their NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® instant coffee in place of it, then let them know how things went.

First and foremost, I want to thank NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice®  for helping #CraftEachDay the last seven days by sending a NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® kit in the mail that contained an awesome new coffee mug, metal spoon, coffee recipes, a  full-size box of French Roast instant coffee sticks, and a coupon to buy an upgraded 7oz glass jar of my favorite roast of NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice®. The glass jars not only lock in freshness better, but  I also like how it showcases the instant coffee granules inside. Which makes it look just as good as it tastes, in my opinion.nescafe-tasters-choiceI bet now you are wondering what I thought of the #TastersChoiceChallenge ? I really enjoyed the challenge, I saved about $6.00+ a day or more than I usually spend in a coffee shop that I have to wait in line for someone to notice me and get my name right.  NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice®  made things so convenient for me, I had extra time to enjoy my coffee while it was still warm this week since I didn’t blow a bunch of time in a long line.


I  was surprised at how good the real flavor was and how fast I could whip up a nice fresh hot cup of coffee as well. Did you know that NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® has 6 varieties of roasts and flavors from House Blend to French Roast to Hazelnut? I think you should try to experience them all for yourself!


I was so inspired by the great fresh taste of NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® I decided to make my go-to dessert, Coffee Caramel Marshmallow Brownies, with some of the instant  NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® coffee. They turned out so darn delicious that  I decided to share my recipe with Y’all on this blog post so you can enjoy them too. You are going to love the rich coffee flavor it lends to the brownies.marshmallow-caramel-brownies-1

I also liked that NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® uses responsibly sourced beans to make their coffee blends. Once the beans are carefully roasted and brewed, the coffee is flash-frozen to lock in freshness. All you have to do is simply add hot water to unlock the rich, smooth flavor.


My Coffee Caramel Marshmallow Brownies made with ‘NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® are so easy it’s ridiculous Y’all. They are moist, and the ‘NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice®  gives them such a unique and delicious flavor that any coffee lover will enjoy their cup of ‘NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® coffee.
