Your Peppermint Obligation

Now that it is after Thanksgiving I feel a tiny bit comfortable about starting to get excited about December. I won’t go crazy until the 1st. You won’t see any decorations and you won’t catch me humming any carols until then. But it’s totally already peppermint season.

For those of you that are not aware (and I honestly can not imagine that any of you don’t know) peppermint is my favorite. Well plaid is OBVIOUSLY my favorite, but if I had to say a 2nd favorite I would simply say peppermint. I love the candy, I love the design, I love the smell, I love the feeling that it stirs up inside of me.

Oh yes, my love is that wonderful.

Last year I was overwhelmed by the number of places offering peppermint mochas. It seemed like everyone had FINALLY discovered that peppermint + mocha = best drink EVER. This was very pleasing to me. As a gift to the world I took it upon myself to do an ultimate peppermint mocha taste test.

{you are welcome}

The clear at home winner for me was Coffee-mate’s peppermint mocha creamer.

I find that this creamer is not too sweet and has just the right amount of minty yumness.

That being said I know that many of you have not been bold enough to try a creamer beyond vanilla. That’s ok. I get it. (not really) But what if I took the hassle of going out and buying this creamer off your plate? Would you try it then? Of COURSE you would!

The folks at Coffee-mate are lovely people. They recognize that I have a mission to peppermint the world.

They are going to send one of my readers a bottle of peppermint mocha creamer. Yup!

Here is how we will decide which one of you gets it:
