In an effort to resolve these conundra, I've tried a number of different brands and off-brands of instant coffee. For most food and drink products, I find that store brands do just as well as name brands -- but instant coffee seems to be an exception to that rule. I have to say that Taster's Choice really does taste better than other instant coffees I've tried, including the atrocious little overpriced single-serving packets from a certain expensive coffee shop chain.
The House Blend offers a nice balance between ease of use (just turn on the kettle or nuke some water) and flavor -- a smooth coffee flavor without the acrid finish so common to instant coffees. With a little Splenda, it makes a decent (not great, but very drinkable) cup of plain coffee; dressed up with a little cocoa powder, a touch of vanilla extract, and a little Splenda, it's pretty nice indeed. I haven't tried the other varieties yet, but the hazelnut is next on the agenda.
I'm surprisingly pleased with Taster's Choice House Blend. I definitely plan to continue using it, and if you, like me, are in the market for a decent instant coffee, it's well worth a try.
I know lots of people hate on instant coffee and I've tried other instant coffee's but IMO this is the best and while it might not be fresh brewed I'm ok with that lol
I don't own a coffeemaker and my husband absolutely hates the smell of brewing coffee & coffee beans BUT this stuff he will drink lol
