The bulk foods section at the local healthy food market (Sprout's in my neighborhood - Central Market or Whole Foods in other parts of town) usually has a better selection of flavored decaf than I can find in the prepacked section. I am in love with a french vanilla decaf, but it's just so dratted expensive...

I love Stevia Drops.
When I drank coffee I would flavor the coffee with the drops.
Now I just drink a little black and green tea and a lot of herbal teas.
Stevia comes in really great flavors and no calories. Some of my favorite are vanilla cream, English Toffee, Chocolate, Berry, Hazelnut, Chocolate Raspberry, cinnamon, mint.....
Depending on the size of your mug only use 8 drops an 8oz cup. So a bottle lasts a real long time.
Today is the day I succeed.

gavalia - or flavor your own
Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a cast away.

The cinnamon is sounding better all the time - is virtually cost-free and is calorie free, PLUS it has a nice warming feeling for your northern winter :-)
Wegmans has some FANTASTIC gourmet decaf flavors. I wonder if they ship... www.wegmans.com They have Irish Creme, Chocolate Covered Cherry, Very Vanilla, Raspberry truffle, Amaretto...and many more. I really hope they can ship across the states. That would be awesome. If not, see about making arangements with a friend or family member that lives near a Wegmans, to buy up a bunch for you and ship them. My sister did that with us, because she now lives in Ireland with her husband. :)

Great suggestion,s but syrups and creams are out. I do not do anything with artificial sugar, and I would love to keep the coffee as less calories as possible, so syrups and creams are out. I did find a great site online that has many different flavors of decaf, in fact I am still looking.

find a place with sugar-free flavoured syrup, and add that to regular decaf

Have you tried a sprinkle of cinnamon - put it in the cup before the hot water/coffee.
It is online but you could try Green Mountain Coffee or Churchill Coffee

Perhaps you could try a flavored creamer for your coffee and that way it won't matter what brand of coffee you drink. Unless of course you like your coffee with no cream/sugar. If you prefer your coffee without cream and sugar, you may want to google decaf flavored coffee.
Be well, Kelly

Gosh darn it, regualr coffee has so many flavors where as decaf only has a a small fraction of what regular coffee has to offer. I am on the look out to find more places in my town and online to find more flavors of decaf coffee. Any suggestins? Thank you :)
