Rated 5 out of 5 by New coffee drinker I never liked vanilla coffee
I have always been a tea person. I always drink black tea or chai tea with cream and sugar. Always. So obviously I'm tired of tea. I've enjoyed coffee every now and again, but I hated the expensive instant coffees I'd tried over the past few months. I tried a Dunkin' Donuts Keurig coffee at a friend's house and liked it. I just bought the Keurig and this was the first K-Pack I used to test my new Keurig. Why? It came in the sample box and I have never liked vanilla coffee. I figured if I brewed it too weak, at least I wouldn't lose a cup that I might seriously consider buying. I was stunned at how delicious this coffee was. It did not have that fake chemical taste I have always associated with vanilla coffees. The roast was smooth and mild. This is not going to knock your socks off with Vanilla, but the vanilla flavor is clear. Even with nothing but the far-from-ideal few teaspoons of generic unflavored powdered creamer and two generic sugar-free sweeteners in a medium cup, I could taste the delicate vanilla sweetness. I imagine it would be heavenly with fresh cream or half and half. I have always been tea person who has never liked vanilla coffee but I will buy this.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Keuring Novice Very Disappointing
So disappointing...I had had such high hopes when I picked this k-cup. I am coffee drinker who loves flavors and is always on the search for a new and exciting coffee flavor to tickle my palette. I am the one who people ask if I want some coffee with my cream and sugar. So when I brewed this coffee and smelled it, I thought that I had found heaven in a cup. Boy, was I sadly mistaken. Although the aroma that comes off the cup is ideal and pleasant, it is a far cry for what you find yourself drinking. I found the coffee too light and watery. I will not even get into the bitter aftertaste. I am grateful that I got this in a variety pack; otherwise, I would have had to return the remaining k-cups. Drink at your own risk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kim Light, but taste just right!
I love this coffee. It is not to strong or to weak.Of course I use French Vanilla creamer in all my coffee, so it was a perfect cup of coffee for me. If you like your coffee strong or bold, than you might not like this one. This coffe is great for drinking several cups, I dont get the jitters. I've been drinking this for about 2 weeks fixing to order some more. I have not tried it without the creamer,so I can not comment on it by itself, but it is perfect with the french vanilla creamer. I am on my second box & have found only 1 k-cup, that was not sealed all the way around, well i used it anyway and it spit coffee grounds everywhere, so check the seal before using. I will be checking ALL my seals from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ravens23 Love this flavor! Sons and I fight over
I truly love this coffee, one of my favorites! I usually have to buy more than one box since my two sons also enjoy this flavor and it goes pretty quickly. It is not too sweet & the vanilla doesn't knock you out. I can have this in the early morning at 3:30 a.m. or 3:30 p.m. and it is still great. I put regular creamer in and non-sugar sweetener in it. Wish it was in a decaf for late evening enjoyment. I'm not a coffee snob so I'm not sure why it is not getting a higher rating. I guess if you want a stronger vanilla flavor then add a vanilla flavor creamer to it. I think it is great just the way it is. Just give it a chance I don't think you'll go wrong with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tiggr Decent French Vanilla
I really enjoyed the sample that came with my Keurig. It's flavorful, and I get the vanilla. Any more vanilla (as some reviewers would prefer), and I don't think I'd be enjoying the coffee flavor. I will buy this again. The complaints that it's too light, I can understand - as I think also it's a bit light. But I think they're unfair criticisms. If you look at the description, it's a LIGHT coffee. Yes... it says so on the cup and in the description, people! Do you expect to get a full caffeine fix on a half-caf or decaf bean? If you're looking for a BOLD or STRONG coffee, brew yourself a bolder roast!

Rated 2 out of 5 by TC Won't be buying this one again...
I usually use vanilla creamer so I was excited to try this blend which came in the sample pack. I couldn't have been more disappointed. Used regular creamer so I could get to 'enjoy' the flavor of the coffee - it was bitter and unpleasant. I added sweetner (I don't usually take sweetner in my coffee) to try to enhance the taste, which it did, but it was a very bland unpleasant coffee which I finally poured down the sink. Left an unpleasant after taste also. I guess I'll stick to the regular/bold roasts and continue to flavor my coffee myself if I choose to!

I'm a mother of 2 under 5 years old, so I depend on my cup of coffee EVERY morning. I like a sweet smooth taste with a good pick me up. Unfortunately I bought 2 boxes because I am usually a fan of French Vanilla Roasts, but this is very disappointing. It doesn't have enough flavor, is very watery, and really doesn't do anything for my energy. I have to add a lot of french vanilla creamer, and then the only pick me up is from a slight sugar high. I am more tired after drinking this then I was without it. Not going to be buying this again.
