Review-Advocare-Coffecchino

Tuesday, March 3, 2015


I received this as a Christmas Gift. No money was exchanged. I was not asked to post this review--all opinion are my own!

I have been having trouble controlling my sweet tooth for a while now which is not good since I am diabetic. It is under control without medication at the moment but that could change in a New York second! I was talking to Bobbie Anne and mentioned this to her. Bobbie is a distributor of Advocare and was telling me all the good things about their products. I listened and knew it was working for her but did nothing about it. At Christmas time I received a surprise gift from Bobbie. It was a full pack of the Coffecchino which includes 14 individual servings!

I immediately boiled some water and made a cup--it tastes great--there is a definite mocha taste with a hint to my palate of malt. It filled me up. I don't drink it every day by any means-just when I need a pick me up (it is filled with vitamins) and I need to slow down my craving for sweets. According to the website you could add additional flavors whether you make it hot or cold. At this time of the year with the temps falling below zero around here I have only tried it HOT.

She just sent me a couple of packets of Spark-which she swears by. This is a flavoring you can add to water. I will write a separate post about Spark after I try it. Maybe when it gets a bit warmer around here and I start drinking water by the gallon.

Now here is what it says on her distributor's website;

Helps enhance mental focus and alertness*
Helps manage appetite in conjunction with diet and exercise*
Provides key B-vitamins and amino acids
Supports your body's natural energy production*

Coffeccino is a great mocha-flavored supplement for anyone looking for increased energy and mental focus.*Coffeccino contains ingredients that help suppress your appetite and provide essential nutrients.*

Is this you?

Someone who has trouble waking up or feels "energy slumps" throughout the day
Someone who wants to support your weight-management program
Someone who wants assistance with appetite control

I love a good coffee with a hint of added flavour. I can't drink straight coffee (even if sweetened with sugar and milk). I need to have a bit of vanilla, hazelnut or mocha added in to disguise the bitter taste of coffee lol.

Carra D said...

I have a sweet tooth too. Not much of a coffee drinker though but my friend would love this.

Chubskulit Rose said...

Thanks for this honest review. I think my Mom would love this! I would check them out!

Alli Smith said...

I bet my daughter would love this. I'm totally decaf so I couldn't drink it, but I'll pass the word to all of my friends.

Maria said...

I'm a snacker, that's my problem so I can understand the sweet tooth of yours.

Sara-Jayne Jones said...

I love coffee so much - and I completely understand your sweet tooth, my weakness is a latte with sugar :/ Toooo good!

Patricia said...

This sounds like a coffee I would really enjoy. I love flavored coffees and am always looking for something new to try.

Masshole Mommy said...

My mom is a diabetic, so I should tell her about this. She has issues controlling her sweet tooth, too.

Bobbie Munsey said...

Thanks so much Michele for the great review. This is a great alternative to high calorie Starbuck's favorites. It even has hunger control in it.

Jennifer Williams said...

Helps to wake you up and curb your appetite - love that idea. I also have a sweet tooth that I battle daily, luckily I am not diabetic but it runs in my family so I try to be careful not to get there.

Miranda Myrabev said...

I have a huge sweet tooth too and i have 6 fillings to show for. But I am not a coffee drinker I am more tea.

I am diet controlled diabetic also. This sounds really great.

Marie Moody said...

I love a big mug of coffee with a tad of cream & pkg. of splenda. mmmm Sometimes I use the flavored cream and my favorite is french vanilla.

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

I can't do sugar so I would be very interested in trying this. When I want something sweet, I usually eat a piece of fruit... but sometimes... I wish I could go to the WILD SIDE.

Miriam Schulman said...

After reading the ingredients, I think this is something I'd like to look into as well. It seems like it's really helpful with curbing appetite.

Janet Krugel said...

I've heard a lot recently about Advocate and this sounds pretty good. Maybe I'll hook up with my friend and buy some of their products.

I could use this right now. I'm in an energy slump at my desk and it's not going well.

Crystal said...

I am a huge coffee addict. The trouble is all of the stuff I add to my coffee can add calories I wasn't really hoping for. I need to give this coffecchino a try!

Jeanine said...

This sounds great! I don't drink coffee but all my friends do and I'm sure they'd love this, such a great option!

Beth Williams said...

Interesting product! I'm not a fan of coffee, but I know other people who would kill for this in the morning!

Lesley said...

I do feel those "energy slumps" sometimes. I think I should give this a try.

I didn't realize Advocare had coffee too. I've heard really good things about their product lines.

Echo A said...

This sounds delicious and appetite suppression is one of the things that I struggle with. I think I need to check this out.

I just love Bobbie! She's my unofficial online workout buddy and lets me rant about fitness all the time. That was really sweet of her to send you the surprise pack of goodies! I am glad you are enjoying them!

That is awesome that you are getting such a benefit from a Christmas Gift. I tend to stress snack, so this would be a better alternative for sure.

I love that this coffee has an added taste. I'm curious to try it for myself now.

I had never heard of this product before. I'm going to have to check this out.

Sounds great! I am a self confessed coffee dependent. Seriously, I'd be dead without coffee. :))

I so could use some of this. I too have a huge sweet tooth.
