Food Finds: Nescafe Coffee Sticks

This is a food find for the frugal and those wanting to save money.


Each box of 7 single serving packets runs for 98 cents at Wal-Mart. Less than a dollar for 7 cups of coffee is a bargain. No mess, no fuss. Simply rip open and add to hot water (or better to your hot chocolate for a Trash-Mocha).

The Nescafe Taster’s Choice packets come in a couple varieties from the mild original seen above to a bolder Colombian. They also come in decaffeinated (gasp! take out the good stuff? That should be a crime!) and in Vanilla and Hazelnut flavors.

True it isn’t gourmet by any means but it is also very affordable. Sure, who wouldn’t prefer to sip on Starbuck’s VIAβ„’ but at $1 per packet…if you are watching your wallet this summer, you could have a weeks worth of coffee instead. Just don’t forget the sweetener πŸ˜‰

And PS: They do offer a coupon for buy one, get one free as well if you give them your email!

  1. Yep! Love those as well! I worked for the local Thai importer,, for a couple years everyone I hiked with had Thai 3 in 1 coffee packets on every trip πŸ˜‰
    Good stuff. I also love the instant espresso powder – QFC and WinCo carry it!

We'd love to hear your thoughts!
