I really like hazelnuts unless they are squished, yuck! I have yet to taste a flavoured coffee that didn't taste of yucky chemicals.

Clearly you all have more refined palettes than I do. I love me some flavored coffee. I do agree there are some that are quite chemical tasting, but there are lots that we really like.

I'm another one who dislikes hazelnut FLAVORING but I love hazelnuts themselves...and nutella is divine.

My palette may well not be more refined than yours. I gave up on flavoured coffees a long time ago. There might be non-chemical tasting ones now. And I can't stand Nutella. I have to ask when some dessert claims to have praline, 'cause some people think that means squished hazelnuts.

So did I. After getting a piece of cheesecake that was ruined with that squished hazelnut paste, I looked up praline on Wikipedia, , and learned that the pecan stuff is "American praline". It turns out that there are a number of different confections with nuts that are called pralines.

When I lived in Denmark I got tricked by the word, "nougat". I only knew about white nougat. There is also dark nougat. "German nougat" is that horrible hazelnut paste.

i'm still trying to suss the bee gee's connection to pralines...to coffee...to stayin' alive...if there is one, taxy? help...?

I love nuts, hazelnuts most of all--love lindt's francais special collection of pralines. I thought it meant 'heavenly chocolates, artistically shaped, with nuts tucked in somewhere'....

Hey you Keurig-istas! Went over to Green Mountain Coffee to tweak my auto-ship order and found a Keurig special. Thought I'd let you all know just in case you didn't. It's a "Buy 2 Brew Over Ice and get two free tumblers PLUS free shipping" deal. Hurry, offer while supply lasts!

I don't know if this works but my Mother said her Mother used to put a pinch of salt into the coffee pot to take away any bitterness.
