Barissimo Coffee Delightfully Pure Coffee Creamer tastes good, but comes at a premium price

Barissimo Coffee Delightfully Pure Coffee Creamer Hazelnut Flavor
This is good coffee creamer, but it comes at a mainstream grocery store price.

By Mike Thayer

Every morning, millions of Americans wake up to (or need it to wake up) a cup of coffee, java, joe, brew, mud, bean juice, morning jolt, wakey juice, call it what you will.... Many of those folks can't drink it black however, it's GOT to have some creamer in it.....

I'm in that latter category. Creamer is must! If I had to drink my coffee black I'd be more of a curmudgeon than I already am.

One of my go-to coffee creamers used to be a hazelnut flavored creamer made by Friendly Farms, a discount brand offered by Aldi.  They stopped offering it and replaced it with a similar product made by Barissimo.  Made with Soybean and/or Palm oil however, that coffee creamer sucks!  The use of soybean and especially palm oil changes the flavor profile, making it something I won't buy.

Well Aldi must have noticed a drop in sales, because they now have an alternative coffee creamer offering now, also made by Barissimo.

Coming in Vanilla, Sweet Cream or Hazelnut flavors, this creamer isn't made with soy or palm oil, the ingredients are simple:  Nonfat milk, cream, sugar, and natural flavor.   Look for the "Delightfully Pure" on the label.

I really like the flavor of this creamer, it doesn't have the nasty soy/palm oil taste with the bitter finish.  The problem is, this creamer comes at a premium price, costing $3.95 for a 32 ounce jug.  I can get a very similar tasting creamer at the mainstream grocery store, also a 32 ounce jug of the Kroger brand for $2.99.  Barissimo's "Delightfully Pure" may very well cost more to produce, but then again, we may just be getting marketed with a "pure" and "natural" lure.  All I know is, I'd rather spend $2.99 for a creamer that tastes good.

I'm giving the Barissimo Coffee Delightfully Pure Coffee Creamer 4 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars.  I like that Barissimo is now offering an alternative to their palm oil based creamers, but I don't like that you have to pay a premium for that alternative.  If it's a choice between the Barissimo regular and the Barissimo "Delightfully Pure" when at Aldi, I'll pay extra and get the Delightfully Pure.  But hopefully I don't have to make that choice, having a stash of Kroger Hazelnut or Italian Sweet Cream already in the fridge at home.  The trouble is, Dillon's is often out of stock!

4 stars

I just bought it but haven't tried it yet, so your comment of how good it is gives me hope that I'll like it.

But news flash: Healthy options usually DO cost more. A dollar is a dollar, but I'd rather spend a dollar more per every 32 ounces (NOT per CUP, please remember) and ingest something healthy that isn't full of questionable additives which can and do wreak havoc on my body than drink or eat something--regardless of how great it tastes--which WILL.
