My morning is ruined!

My coffee cup - ruined my morning

I ran out of milk and my coffee creamers which I prefer and enjoy that first cup of coffee when I get up in the morning. Rumaging through my refrigerator I found some French Vanilla creamer that I just put aside and thought I would eventually throw out because it is fat free and I didn't notice that when I bought it. I hate anything fat free especially my creamer but I have to have my coffee with creamer so I made a cup. I knew it was going to be horrible but I need that coffee. I swear it has ruined my morning although I'm drinking it anyway. Have you ever bought something that when you got home it was not what you thought it would be? Isn't it so disappointing?

Atleast you had some coffee before starting your day, right? Well for me I also love drinking coffee every morning that's like a daily routine for me already. But you know it feels kind of bad too when you have purchased something unintentionally. So I guess you have to check the label even more the next time you pull out of the grocery store. Have a great day!

Fat free things taste so bad , I feel you . I have also mistakenly bought things that disappoint me . I one time mistakenly buy three spicy can meat and I dont like spicy food on a regular .

Many times---but I don't let it ruin my day. If I can still return it, good. But if not, I try to find a way to make good use of it (or sell it to someone else). I always to make it an option to look at things positively. If I was in your state I'd think that my caffeine fix is better off with a fat free creamer than none at all.

it is. i often see items at the grocery store and think that they would be nice to try because they look so yummy but because i don't have much money, i hesitate because i would hate to waste money on something i didn't like, so back to the tried and true i go.

Yes sometimes we buy the wrong product like fat free or instant oatmeal instead of real oatmeal. Its a disappointing things to find when you taste it!

I bought some coffee creamer at the Dollar Tree. It was the liquid creamer, clear and vanilla flavored. I had some the other day and the first taste was like "blech!" I don't know that I will ever buy it again. I will try it again after I get over the initial taste. The other topic though as far as those little things ruining your day, your day has not been ruined. You had a bad experience in the morning and it wasn't pleasant, but that doesn't mean that something good isn't going to happen to you later in the day. You might find a $5 dollar bill in the parking lot when you go grocery shopping. That would be something good. Stubbing your toe in the morning as you get out of bed is not going to ruin your day either, it just means you got out of bed and stubbed your toe. We have to keep a positive frame of mind always. Oh, I know we can't be "on" all the time, but we can choose our attitudes whether we are going to be happy or sad or if we are going to let something ruin our whole day. It is disappointing to go through your day always in a negative attitude because you think your day has been ruined.

I seldom buy food from a dollar store for just that reason. They usually taste horrible and aren't even worth the $1 or so that they charge for it. I'm not a really positive or optimistic person.

HaHaHa! I'm laughing because I use the International Delights Fat Free Vanilla creamer everyday, lol! How funny it is the differences between people. It's the only creamer I buy because it is fat free, and when I was diagnosed with high blood pressure I went from the regular to fat free just because of that reason. I sometimes use the Hazelnut but only on rare occasions. If I didn't like something that much that it would ruin my day, I would have drank it black.

lol...and this is International Delights! I also like hazelnut but not fat free! I think it makes for an awful aftertaste.

Aw, thanks for BR! How come you didn't let this go any longer? I'm sure you would have had more responses. Anyways, the Hazelnut I use once in a blue moon is not fat free..that's why it's only once in a while but I do love it. I'm so used to the fat free Vanilla right now it doesn't bother me at all. My youngest daughter, Cassie, uses it too but totally hates the fat free Vanilla just like you do. She says it's too sweet for her. I guess it all bears down to the high blood pressure for me, which is now normal with no pills. My cholesterol was up too, so that's why I decided to watch what I was eating a bit more. I drink so much coffee, I thought this would be the best for me.

I have that flavored coffee and creamer and I love them the last mistake I made was buying a vanilla milk and needing milk for my food. It messed up my whole pot and we had to eat it though.

I liked it a little better this morning. I used the hazelnut instead of the vanilla and it had a better flavor.

Hmmm...coffee first thing in the morning makes my day! We have the same thing in common, you know it is my energizer without coffee it's like a car without gasoline lolz! For me I love it strong coffee with fat free creamer and less sugar. If I accidentally bought different brand of coffee or creamer it's really disappointing, I cannot make it with the same taste... :(

Coffee is a big thing to me and it has to be just right for me to enjoy it. I'm used to it tasting a certain way and if i can't for some reason it really does ruin my day.

NO, I can't use any sugar substitutes....they all seem to leave an awful aftertaste and ruins my coffee.

If there is any mix-up, the item generally goes back to the store. My boyfriend is the one who typically picks up the wrong thing, though, since he does not check things as carefully as I do. That, of course, explains why there is currently a bag of whole coffee beans in our cabinet; however, I would like to use this particular error in my favor and gain a coffee grinder out of the deal.

lol....coffee beans and no grinder...I did that once and never again after that. I just need to wear my glasses when I shop and I know it.

I dislike the fat free versions of regular stuff too. That stuff just lacks the taste of the real thing. Anyway, I had quite a few such disappointing purchases since I have attention problems and often skip words when reading in a hurry without realizing I didn't notice something important. Luckily, it's rarely anything that would ruin my morning coffee. I don't remember a single case when I'd manage to buy low fat milk. It's usually the stuff like yoghurts, cheese or things with sugar that get mixed up in my case.

Sometimes when I"m feeling healthy...lol...I buy low fat milk for my cereal and don't have a problem with it but in my coffee? I don't think so.

I hate it when they change the recipe of products that we have come to include in our morning or daily ritual, we get used to something, enjoy it then suddenly changes to our distaste. I find it a lot with squashes now, most of them are sugar free, because of this big health kick and the obesity rates in our country, the manufacturers are starting to make everything possible sugar or fat free! I had run out of squash so on the way home from the gym I nipped into the shop and bought a couple of bottles, little realizing they were sugar-free, well it tasted vile, absolutely vile. I had nothing to drink, so I had to drink ordinary tap water instead. The annoying thing is that the labels are similar to the normal sugar drinks! Now I have to look twice whenever I buy squash to make sure it's not sugar free.

I actually bought this by mistake. I was very surprised when I got it home and then noticed the fat free written on it. I think I need to start wearing my glasses when I go shopping.

As I see you are pretty sensitive about your body and fat. Don't worry about this! People forget buying something sometimes. And don't worry if it's not far free. If you do sports enough you don't have to "overworry" a little fat.

It isn't the fat I'm worried about...although I should...it's just the taste of anything fat free that I hate. It spoils everything for me with that horrible aftertaste!

Hi friend, i think you enjoyed a different experience while drinking the coffee, don't think it ruined your morning, it made a change in your morning. Sometimes we are in need to face such kind of disappointments, but they are different experience for us and teach some good things

I never went in for creamer and stuff in my coffee. If I am going to have a fancy coffee, I'll take a mocha latte. If I am just going to have coffee, then I'll drink it black, and regular. Mind you, I buy the expensive beans and grinde them at home, otherwise, no garnish is necessary.
