If you’re anything like me, the more whipped cream or foam on a coffee or cappuccino, the better. Honestly, sometimes I only get a coffee for the whipped cream.
I do try to limit my Starbucks trips, however, and drink most of my coffee at home. Unfortunately, if you’ve ever tried to make your own fancy coffees, you know that throwing some whipped cream on top is just not the same.
That’s why Reddi-Wip is introducing a new line of products that will bring out the barista in all of us at-home-coffee drinkers. Their new Barista Series features two brand new products, Reddi-wip Nitro Creamer and Reddi-wip Sweet Foam. Whether you opt for a French press, pour-over or cold brew, you can now make your favorite drink even more amazing!
The nitro creamer is dispensed directly into your beverage to infuse the entire drink with a rich and velvety vanilla-flavored texture, just like the Nitro coffee you’d find in a coffee shop. It can be used in place of a traditional creamer for hot or cold coffee and you can even put it in other beverages like soda or cocktails. Think: root beer or orange soda for a root beer float or orange dreamsicle flavor. Yum!
The sweet foam will add a finishing touch of sweetness to your drink, but it will sit on top of the beverage (like a cappuccino or latte) instead of dispersing throughout the drink like the nitro creamer or other creamers.
“Given the continued strength of coffee sales and the fact that many consumers already use our regular Reddi-wip in their coffee, we saw an exciting opportunity to bring a cream-based innovation to market that would better replicate popular coffee drinks and the coffeehouse experience but in the convenience of home or work,” Ryan Clark, president of the refrigerated and frozen division at Conagra Brands, said in a press release.
The Barista Series are dairy-based, not oil-based, unlike other traditional creamers. Reddi-wip says they also have a distinctive taste that’s different from regular Reddi-wip. Even the instructions for using them are different.
Both the nitro creamer and sweet foam are made with only six ingredients, are gluten-free, contain real sugar and have no artificial sweeteners, flavors or preservatives. The nitro creamer contains 40 calories per serving while the sweet foam contains 45 calories per serving.
The entire Barista Series will be released nationally in the coming months, so keep an eye out at your local grocery store. The suggested retail price is $3.99 for a 13-ounce can.
Will you be trying the new Reddi-wip creamer or sweet foam with your morning coffee?
