Nescafe Taster’s Choice

Hey, ya’all.  I know I told you recently about some opportunities to be “testers” for certain products…

Here’s where it gets real, yo.  I am a Taster for Nescafe Taster’s Choice and the perks are unreal.  I just wanted to re-iterate how awesome it is to be a part of the community and that you should join as well! 

They just updated their website and it’s super user friendly.  The game section is fun.  There is an old-school Snake game where you catch coffee beans without eating your tail.  It wasted some time for me and if, like me, your work blocks most games, you will take what you can get.  In this case, I actually had a lot of fun.  I haven’t played Snake since I got a cell phone that wasn’t the size of a 2 liter of Pepsi.  Remember when that’s the only game that came on your cell phone?  Man, I do.  The phone that I shared with my sister… That was bigger than my hands, easily…it had a cover with foreign stamps on it that you had to remove the face plate and click onto the back part to use… and it had horrible midi ringtones that sort of sounded like songs that you dig… and the cover had a fake flip part that covered the keys but otherwise served no function… Ah, the 90s…

You know, mother, this phone isn't as convenient as I thought it would be... I used to be able to ignore you when you called and asked me if I have a girlfriend yet... No, mother, I am not "the gay." Don't call me back at this number.

Anyway, I got some pleasant childhood-type nostalgia playing.

If you want to become a member, like myself, and get some sweet perks (I’m talking gift certificates for engaging in the community) go here.  It’s fun, inclusive, feels like a community, and you earn rewards for your participation pretty fast!  I dig it.   https://team.tasterschoice.com/login/

Definitely check out their new website, because it is a great time spender when you are sipping on a cup of coffee, playing with your phone when your boss isn’t looking, bored of Minesweeper, tired of fluorescent lights and needing something to get your mind back up and running, or however you roll.

The coffee break section is a much needed departure from listening to my cube-mates talking about any inane thing that comes to mind…

Also, as a side note, I generally don’t like instant coffee, but since I tried the Hazelnut version of this stuff, I am hooked.  It is so smooth and delicious…tastes like coffee, not chemicals, and there’s no mealy coffee bits in the bottom of my cup when I’m done.   Yum.  Usually, I feel kind of cheap trying to sell people on a product, but this stuff is truly an easy, cheap fix and it beats the stale coffee in the coffee pot which has never been washed, in the kitchen which is suspended in a wafting perma-funk of dead mouse smell and in which I have personally seen live mice…
No thanks, work coffee, I don’t need to wake up that desperately… I keep Nescafe Taster’s choice packets in my desk and grab some hot water from the Keurig machine up front that’s for “customers.”  No one will begrudge me some water, yes? 

Get back to memories of your first cell phone with the Nescafe Snake game…
