#54 save your gym socks for the gym

I like to buy different coffee all the time.  For the most part, every time I have tried a new coffee, it has been fairly palatable.  I think onion coffee was the worst up until this point.

Well people, we have a new winner.

I thought by the cute title and aroma that it was going to AT LEAST be at a mehish level....boy was I wrong! 

Let start off with some positives first:

1. I look amazing
2. I made that mug

That's all I got... can't even get 3 bueno

Before I describe this awesomeness I need to show you my reaction...because sometimes words are not enough... although I will try with the word thing too.

This is what I really wanted to do

Because how, HOW?! can a company produce such a HORRIBLE HORRIBLE product and still be in business?!!?

Ok here it is. The company that makes this coffee brand is Brew La La. The "FLAVOR" is snickerkicker. or as I dubbed it, ODE DE LA GYM SOCK

I bought it for $4.99 (I paid too much). It looked really cute and had a good smell more or less.  I figured, sure why not?! I haven't tried a new coffee in too long! But OMGoodness. HORRIBLE.

 I think what happened was, the company decided to play a big joke on it's customers and get a bunch of bark and sticks from the back of their homes, grind it up, and add some coffee "flavor" to it. And to get that flavor...oh that flavor...Imagine if you will, going to the gym, getting a good workout, putting your socks in a gym bag... the next day repeat with the same socks....FOR A MONTH...and THEN steep them for the flavor. THAT IS WHAT IT TASTES LIKE!!! It's like a musty, nasty UNEARTHLY taste. It HAS to be what they did because IT DOESN'T EVEN TASTE LIKE COFFEE!!!!

Did I mention is was THE WORST COFFEE I HAVE EVER OR WILL EVER HAVE!?!?!? Horrible.

And you know what the kicker is!?!? Here is their description of their company:

The best part of everyday just got a little sweeter with Brew La La Coffee.

They got one thing right...SENSE OF HUMOR that they think this coffee is anything close to DELICIOUS. This could help with weight loss though, because it will easily induce vomiting. Good Times.

Ok ok enough, time for the Jess Rating:
Beyond disgusting, I literally wanted to throw up

And today I am thankful for:



  1. Your description of socks in a gym bag is classic. You should submit it to their marketing person. Who knows, maybe they will like YOUR sense of humor and offer you a job.

  2. Jess, the your mug... Oh, and your coffee cup too.

  3. I bought some brew la la coffee last week. It looked fancy so I thought why not. I actually bought two types. Oh what a mistake and waste of money
    A horrible dry almost chalky taste to it. I had to run to my local shop at 8am to buy a bag of something else just so I had my morning fix


You should comment. I am an affirmation girl, so even if it's shallow and fake, I will TAKE IT!!! Or if you hate it, you will just give me good material for another blog post so.... COMMENT OR DIE!!! ( that was a bit harsh, but i really do like comments...thanks!)
