Nescafe Gold Salted Caramel Mocha (Morrisons) By @cinabar

Nescafe Gold Salted Caramel Mocha

I was excited to see a new flavour of Nescafe Gold coffee, and I was taken in by the bright packaging. The box is really quite pretty and fresh. The new flavour is Salted Caramel Mocha which seems like a lovely new addition, not too adventurous but interesting enough for me to want to give it a try. Salted Caramel is a flavour that companies seem to go to when they want to bring out something new but safe, and we aren’t in a good place economically here in the UK. I think safe is going to be the way forward for a while. The cost of living crisis probably explains the other issue I have with this box of Nescafe. There are only seven Nescafe Gold sachets in my box, instead of the traditional eight sachets. There have always been eight. This is a cutback without a price reduction, which is always a bit disappointing, but companies aren’t doing well either.

I put that aside and made the drink. Always let the kettle cool a little after boiling before pouring to get the best flavour from these sachets. The drink mixed up well and had a nice froth. The flavour is really nice, there is a touch of chocolate and a touch of salted caramel. It isn’t overly sweet and seems less so than some of the other flavours I've tried over the years. I liked the soothing flavour and thoroughly enjoyed my drink. I’d be a lot happier if there were the usual eight sachets, though.
