    On a trip to Miami, after a wonder Cuban dinner, my hosts – with a knowing nod – ordered me a special coffee.

    Very. Special. Coffee. :a14:

    Do you KNOW what Cafe Bombon is? :07:

    Pure ... sugary ... evil ... temptation. :devil:


    By definition, it's half cafe Cubano espresso and half sweetened condensed milk. It can be layered ... then, mercifully, stirred.

    Don't do that. :devil:

    But if you ADD this sweetened condensed milk to your everyday espresso ... which used to be safely sold in a can - which few people opened. But now they are making it in a squeeze tube ... and we bought some ...

    Very bad. Very. :ohmy:

    Don't do this. :devil:

    It's really good. :angel:

    This. Don't buy this!


  3. We get Vietnamese sweetened condensed milk when the need strikes. Why is all the bad stuff sooo good?
  4. How dare you get me hooked on Cubano Espresso, and now this....

    Yes, the local Vietnamese grocery store is my regular haunt ... A good bahn mi is a whole nother story!

    Ah. Well. You know how good the cafe is ... A tube of this wicked stuff is only $2.47!

    Give it a try ... :devil2: you will enjoy it!

    Oh. Don't read the calorie or sugar count on the label, though.

    No, no, no. :cornut: just enjoy the Cafe Bombon.

    Apparently it come from the Canary Islands... Worth a Google.

    Yup. Just squeeeeeze some in the espresso cup, stick it under the spout and ....psssssshhhh.

    Layers form. Admire, then stir.

    And drink.

    FINSHED the bottle of sweetened condensed milk, to my horror/disgust. :07:

    Thought that was the end of this sugary guilt trip. :117:

    Wife brings home groceries … there it is again! :001_unsur :001_wub:

    After discovering you can drizzle this evil substance on dessert last night, I shouted *We used to leave this stuff alone, when it came in a can!*
