Review - Smart & Final - Ambiance Coffee
In February I was blessed and won a fabulous giveaway at Mel, A Dramatic Mommy. The giveaway was for Ambiance Coffee a new product carried by Smart & Final. I also won a $150 Smart & Final gift card! Because my husband and I are absolute coffee fanatics, I was filled with absolute glee!
First let me just RAVE about how quickly Smart & Final sent my order. I won on the 9th, and the prize was at my door on the 18th! How cool is that? And the prize was absolutely stunning. First of all it was packed in a beautiful basket that was so pretty it is now sitting on our mantle.
Isn't it adorable? Placed in the basket were eight 12 ounce bags of Ambiance Coffee.
* Ground French Vanilla
* Ground French Roast
* Ground Kona Style
* Ground Hazelnut
* Ground Gourmet Supreme
* Ground House Blend
We typically drink Dunkin Donuts coffee which, by the way, we LOVE, but it was nice to try something new. Smart and Final Ground Gourmet Supreme was our first choice out of the box. Talk about a treat! It is one of those coffees that taste amazing from the moment you open the bag. It smelled so good I could taste it. You know what I mean? It only got better as it started brewing. But the taste! Oh it was nice being spoiled again. Ambiance Gourmet Supreme's flavor is rich but not too bold, has a hint of spice but is remarkably smooth. It tasted great with half and half the way I like it, but was also completely complimented by my husband's favorite Coffee Mate Amaretto Creamer. A total win-win!
If you have a Smart & Final near you, head on over and enjoy the store and check out their awesome products. They have locations in California, Nevada and Arizona. Follow this link to see if there is a Smart & Final near you.
I just want to end this with a huge thanks to Melanie of Mel, A Dramatic Mommy and Smart & Final.
PS I won this prize and had no requirements to review the product. I did so of my own free will with no other compensation.
