I’ve always enjoyed having a cup of coffee after dinner when I want to decompress and regroup. Whether I need to reflect on the day or recharge so I can stay up and work, coffee after dinner has become a tradition for me during the work week. Although most of the time I like to drink my coffee straight, I recently started using Coffee-mate‘s Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie creamer. This delicious creamer has transformed my regular cup of coffee after dinner into a nostalgic moment that reminds me of childhood. Isn’t it interesting how a flavor or smell can bring back memories? For me, the taste of the Coffee-mate Toll House® Chocolate Chip creamer brought back memories of my mother baking cookies after dinner for dessert.
Over the weekend I invited my sister and her family over for dinner and decided I would try and re-create some of the memories we shared with our mother growing up. It’s always nice catching up with family over dinner, especially since everyone has busy schedules nowadays. When dinner was over I put out a tray of cookies for my niece and nephew to enjoy, just like my mother did years ago. As the children played in front of the television stuffing their faces with cookies, I sat down with my sister and chatted over a cup of coffee. Using a teaspoon of Coffee-mate’s Toll House®Chocolate Chip Cookie creamer, our coffee reminded us of a time in life when stress did not exist and everything could be solved with a chocolate chip cookie. Thanks to Coffee-mate, I was able to re-create sentimental moments of my childhood with my sister. It’s amazing how a sip of coffee can remind you of moments like those.
