BTW, anyone had or even seen Camp coffee liqueur recently? I was just thinking about it this morning. My mum loved it.


I was slightly shocked to find that it still exists. According to what I just read it’s mostly composed of sugar and chicory with just a tiny bit of coffee.
Sounds repulsive.
Have you ever tried it?
Bugger off.

We used to have it years ago as a treat. Doesn't it have a weird colonial label?

Camp coffee!
My Dad used to make it as a ‘treat’ too.
We’d dip malted milks in!

I've never heard of Camp coffee in the States.

I have a cousin who loves chocolate covered coffee beans. It doesn't sound appealing to me but they seem to be fairly popular.

That's a bit bit strange to me as 1) I cannot stand coffee, at all, any kind, and 2) my nephew/godson cannot for the life of him, stomach chocolate (I know, he's a weirdo) :oops:

I know a fair amount of people who don't like coffee. It's not THAT strange or as strange as not liking or craving chocolate ... ;)

When we visit Lithuania, every where we go that serves coffee has offered us either coffee or cappuccino at the same price. Naturally, I go for the cappuccino.

I remember having it as a kid. It's a very sweet syrup. I have no recollection of how it was prepared (I assume with hot water and milk) or what it tastes like or even if I liked it. Wiki has this to say about the label:
The original label, by William Victor Wrigglesworth, depicted a Sikh servant waiting on a seated Scottish soldier. A feature of this label was that the server carried a tray on which there was a bottle of Camp Coffee, which carried the same label showing a bottle of Camp Coffee and so on into infinity. A later version of the label, introduced in the mid-20th century, removed the tray from the picture, thus removing the infinite bottles element (the Droste effect), and was seen as an attempt to avoid the connotation that the Sikh was a servant, although he was still shown waiting while the kilted Scottish soldier sipped his coffee.[4][5] The current version, introduced in 2006, depicts the Sikh as a soldier, now sitting beside the Scottish soldier, and with a cup and saucer of his own

I used to take them to work for those times when you didn't have time to drink anything but you needed a lift. Gobbling a few of those would help.

For Bruce it must be Mellow Birds
For other brews I have no words
The aftertaste should briefly linger
Then dunk a Birds Eye cod fish finger
Nice to see you
To see you nice
Mine's a curry
With plenty of rice

Colombian coffee is what good normal coffee should taste like. Like Dunkin Donuts coffee. Nutty, aromatic, not bitter, and great with a mouthful of French cruller. In my search for the cheapest and finest of things I found a store which sells really cheap bags of a Colombian-Brazilian blend which even my wife - who will make a separate pot of coffee not to drink my coffee - says is delicious. :D

I miss both Dunkin Donuts coffee and their French Crullers .. ALOT! My first husband and I would pick up a thermos of their coffee and a some donuts before heading off to a Jets game. We had season tickets when they were at Shea. Some nice memories ... :)

Tea for me. Don't care for coffee at all.

When I do from time to time opt for tea I wonder at how good it tastes and why I don't drink it more often. It is almost like I owe my loyalty to the imaginary coffee club.
