Many people have said, “I like my cream and sugar with a touch of coffee,” and these days you can have off-the-wall flavors to go with the adage if you please. Companies that make the liquid, non-dairy, sweetened coffee additive commonly known as ‘coffee creamer' are introducing newer, more bizarre flavors than ever imagined before such as White Chocolate Raspberry and Fat-Free & Sugar-Free Caramel Marshmallow.

You heard it right, there's a trend of taking classic dessert flavors and magically re-creating as a coffee creamer.
If you can dream it, companies like International Delight and Coffee Mate can make it in a shelf-stable, liquid, milky-sweet form. There are even flavors inspired by Star Wars: The Force Awakens such as a C-3PO Hazelnut and Darth Vader Espresso Chocolate should you desire to have the infamous characters cross over to your morning ritual.
