1.0 out of 5 stars2nd order that’s dented and won’t work
October 20, 2018
Received a bunch of dented pods. More than half did not work in the machine because the shape was altered enough it couldn’t puncture them properly. This is the second order from JPI (jagged Peak Inc in St. Petersburg, FL) that was like this. The order I received today has 25!!! Dented pods. (See pic)
I love all nespresso pods bc they are so easy and good but love this three pack bc of the flavors. It's nothing too strong but just has enough flavor to give it a little extra taste and I love sweets and this comes with 1 chocolate, 1 vanilla and 1 caramel. My husband always orders the plain yet always seems to use my flavors instead! If you like something that just has a hint of a flavor this is a great combination pack!
Expensive But Worth the Splurge!!! If you have a Nespresso machine then I'm not telling you anything that you don't already know. The pods work out to about $1.00 per pod... you can buy them on Nespresso.com for .75 each but you have to purchase a min of 50. I like buying them here because for this reason... 30 last me for quite some time. These are my favorite 3 flavors... I usually make lattes and and add extra Carmel,,, Vanillia or Chocolate Toranti and half & half.
If you love your Nespresso, like I do, then you will also love these three flavors. Vanilla, Chocolate and Caramel - though just a hint of the flavor added to the already fantastic Nespresso coffee. It provides just enough flavor to enhance the coffee without overwhelming it will artificial flavors. This is my goto coffee when I'm home.
I tried these for a change. I love that they have all natural flavor because artificial flavor tastes like chemicals to me... it is what it is. I wish the showcases flavors of these coffee pods were prominent tasting. I will say, the coffee does smell like the flavor it is supposed to be. The coffee base is slightly bitter, so I do wish it were more smooth. I usually get the Nespresso dark purple pods... love those, as they are super smooth & delicious! These were ok, & nice to try.
I generally do not like flavored coffees, but these were very subtle. The ciocattino had a slight hint of dark chocolate that never overpowered the espresso. Vanilio was a bit too mild, but I often mix the flavored capsules with stronger plain espresso blends. I would call these 3 blends flavored espresso for adults. Will definitely order again.
Nespresso pods offer a premium espresso experience, right in the comfort of your own kitchen or office. This 30-pack flavored variety is a great way to experience the velvety crema of your Nespresso machine, with hints of flavor that bring a nice nuance to your espresso. Subtle flavor permeates each cup, enhancing and not overpowering the natural nuances in the espresso.
I've found that most flavored coffees, including those from pods, smell great, but have a strange, artificial flavor or aftertaste. This is not the case with these Nespresso "sweet" flavors packs. They have a natural flavor essence, without any strange or chemical aftertaste. You get 10 each of the Caramel, Chocolate and Vanilla varieties, which will appeal to a wide array of espresso lovers. Create the perfect flavored latte or cappuccino by using Nespresso's Aeroccino Plus milk frother.
Contrary to the product name, these pods are NOT sweet, so add your own sweetener to taste. I find a little sugar and cream absolutely brings out the flavors. I find natural sugar is the best here, but "black", they are also enjoyable.
Try something even more interesting by brewing one each of vanilla and caramel to create a blend of flavors that is warm, comforting, and a great way to feel like you've had a guilt-free treat. Or, have an "egg cream coffee" and brew and vanilla and chocolate and add some cream and sugar! YUM!
Each one of these flavors is pretty good. I probably like Vanilla the best, but I can see each one appealing to someone who likes that particular flavor. I really like that the flavors do not taste "fake" but just the taste really blends well with the coffee.
I only give them four stars because I've found that none of them quite hit the spot like just a good ol' classic capsule (personally, I love the Volluto). These do make very nice additions to a blended drink though.
