The building where I work has a little coffee stand on the first floor, and every day around 3pm, we head up there for coffee and a snack. Yesterday, I decided to add a couple of pumps of Hazelnut syrup, because it’s free. And somehow, the coffee just tasted off to me. I wasn’t sure if the coffee itself was too bitter, or what, but I suspected that they had slipped in a sugar-free syrup on me somehow.
So this afternoon, we went back up again, and I went over and checked on the syrup’s label. Sure enough, sugar-free. So for all of you who doubted my beer reviews, that goes to show you just how sophisticated my palate is. Either that, or sugar-free syrup just really tastes that bad.
