Coffee Drinking Mommies: How do you drink your coffee?

Everyone always gives me crap about how I drink mine because I like it SWEET.

I am working currently to reduce the amount of zero calorie sweeteners I use to a more "appropriate" and "acceptable" level due to many factors:
1) I'm sure the amount I am using can't be good for me.
2) I wouldn't mind using many less per cup.
3) I'm tired of the snide remarks everyone makes when I make a cup of coffee to enjoy for myself.

Yes, I know.... ignore them.... but seriously.... it gets and has gotten OLD.

I use about 5 sweetener packets per cup of coffee (or if I am using Splenda at home I use about 3 tablespoons worth per cup).

So all-in-all... I like a little bit of coffee with my sweetener. Lol.

How about you?

  • I have to have flavored liquid creamer, and like you OP, probably too much! I pour about half an inch in the bottom of my mug (about 1/8 cup) and fill it with coffee - it holds about 2 cups.

  • Personally I can't stand sweetened coffee. I will put a little bit of soy milk in my first cup of coffee, just to cool it down enough so I don't burn my tongue

  • I used to like mine very sweet, but I have gradually weaned myself off the super-sugary flavor. Now, I take 1 level teaspoon of real sugar in my 10 oz. mug. I used to use about 3 spoonfuls. You can slowly cut back on the amount you're using so that your taste buds will acclimate to the less sweet taste over time.
    You shouldn't worry about the snide remarks, but you should think about your health! :-)

  • I take two spoons of real sugar and one spoon of creamer per cup of coffee. And yes, I get snide remarks about how I take my coffee too. I simply tell them, they can fix my next cup if I can fix theirs.
