Better Together: Nescafe and Coffee-mate - A morning staple!

Better Together: Nescafe and Coffee-mate – A morning staple!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post with Nescafe with Coffee-mate. However, all opinions are my own.

There are some combos that we can’t live without. The first that come to mind are peanut butter and jelly, milk and cookies, chips and salsa, pan dulce and cafecito, and now there’s one that’s a marriage made in heaven. Nescafé has paired with Coffee-mate. That’s right, the perfect blend of coffee and creamer is now available at your favorite retailer, Nescafé with Coffee-mate.  2 and 1 will never be the same again!

Nescafe has found its perfect match.

Nescafe has found its perfect match.

The best part is that anyone can prepare this and I mean anyone! My mom was over this weekend and needed to have her cafecito first thing in the morning. My daughter helped make abuela and her tias cafe with three very simple steps. It’s easy as 1-2-3. First you add 2 tablespoons to your favorite mug. Next, add 6 oz of hot water. Finally, stir well. Simple enough for a kiddo to make.

I’m not going to lie. My mom tried to snag all of the flavors. She loved them all. I know you will too. Make sure to head over to for a .75 cent coupon.

Nescafé wants one of our lucky readers to win a two week supply. There are two ways to enter.

You can tweet about this dynamic duo and let me know what two foods go better together or you can leave a comment letting us know about your favorite “better together” foods are. That’s it! Giveaway ends on November 1st at 11:59pm. Winner will be chosen at random. Good luck!
