Sweet Nostalgia

Taste and smell are two of the greatest memory triggers we have.  To this day, I can detect the perfume I wore in middle school and be taken back to my most awkward adolescent years, or taste the combination of honey and butter and be transported to Sunday morning breakfasts as a child.

One of the scents that takes me way back is black coffee and sweet caramel.  I come from a long line of coffee drinkers and, in my opinion, very good cooks.  On any given day I could expect to find something baking, be it at home with my mom, at my grandma’s, or even my great-grandmother’s house.  The aroma of sugar caramelizing in the oven, mixed with a pot of hot java brewing is a combo that brings a smile to my face even as an adult.

While we weren’t fancy enough to make caramel macchiatos at home at that time, adding Coffee-mate® Caramel Macchiato Creamer to my coffee today brings back the same fragrant memories that I shared with my family so long ago.
