I also use sugar free coffee creamer. Maybe it's just me, but I haven't noticed an after taste.

Today's coffee took some time to get used to :-)
2 TBSP Organic Fat Free Half & Half
1 tsp sugar
splash pure vanilla extract.

I think this is where I will stay for now and may help my Sweet Tooth. Hey! Better than 6 creams and 6 sugars at McDonald's ;-)

I love flavored creamer in my coffee...I have been buying the sugar free, but it does have a after taste. I do enjoy a good cup of coffee, so this is a tough one for me...drinking coffee black just doesn't appeal to me.

Like many of you I also use a sugar free creamer. I've tried many and the Coffee Mate French Vanilla tastes the best to me. I've found others leave that "sugar free" aftertaste..yuck! Good luck!

I love flavor coffees a lot! Usually Mochas. But, I feel it is not the same as creamer. I wish I could get used to the coffee flavor, but I like the taste of a "latte" and will add flavored creamer to get the bitterness of coffee out.

The creamer has been my biggest challenge. I love flavored creamer!!! I switched to the Natural Bliss so I can avoid HFCS but will take awhile to get away completely....

I use a flavoured cream at home and recently noticed that my coffee seems too sweet. yesterday, I made a cup with just cream - no sugar. It was just perfect. Today at work, using regular cream, I needed to add sugar. I knew that those flavoured creams have sugar but never realized just how much! Dropping the sugar at home may be a small victory, but I'll take it!

I used to use 2 tsps of sugar in my coffee but since I started this challange I have been decreasing it by 1/4 tsp a week down to 1 1/4 spoons and doing fine. You might check the calories in those flavored creams. If they aren't higher than what you are using you might be able to eliminate the sugar altogether. I don't think your coffee is your only problem either, by the way. emoticon emoticon

My reason for joining this challenge is so that I can eat healthier. I can exercise self-control when it comes to sweets, however, my biggest challenge is using a substitute in my coffee. I enjoy regular sugar in my coffe. I consume at least 2 cups a day using 2 tsp of sugar and power creme in each cup. My husband "strongly" suspects it contributes to my weight...I don't agree...but who knows?
