Massive Consumer Outcry Brings Coffeemate’s ‘Amaretto’ Flavor Back From Retirement


Home coffee drinkers have some great news to wake up to this morning. Coffee-mate, the coffee creamer brand, has announced they’ll be bringing back their popular Amaretto flavor this month.

Towards the end of 2014, the creamer company decided to retire Amaretto and focus on its other flavors. However, early in 2015, fans got to work getting their sweet Italian liqueur flavor back on shelves. This included emails, phone calls, social media posts and even snail mail letters.

The movement was led by a woman named Judy who really loved the creamer flavor, leading to the hashtag #ThankYouJudy for the comeback campaign.

You can find Coffeemate’s Amaretto flavor at participating grocery retailers for a limited time. If you’re an avid fan like Judy, you might want to stock up before they return to retirement.

This New York City Bakery Makes Deliciously Boozy Donuts with 10% ABV


After last year’s cronut madness, it didn’t seem there was any other way to improve the donut. But we’re so glad we were so, so wrong.

Drunkin’ Donuts is the New York City-based bakery that’s getting all our pastry-loving panties in a bunch. First opened in April 2013, they’re known for their namesake 10% ABV alcohol-infused donuts, including the “Mudslide,” “Raspberry Champagne,” and “White Russian.” But they also whip up some mean boozy cupcakes, truffles, cannolis, and brownies (ahem, Amaretto Macaroon brownies, anyone?).





Best of all? (And brace yourself because it’s almost too good to be true.) Yep, nationwide shipping.
