So, this is a first. I’ve never written an entire post dedicated to a creamer before, but there’s a first for everything, right? Truth is: I had never even tried the Starbucks creamers. I’m not sure why, but it probably had something to do with switching to dairy-free creamers a few years ago.
But, when I kept seeing videos on Instagram featuring the Starbucks Caramel Macchiato creamer, I thought I had to at least try it. My expectations were pretty low. I’ve tried a lot of creamers that weren’t very good and it seemed unlikely that a creamer could mimic the iconic Starbucks Caramel Macchiato drink.
But, turns out – I was pleasantly surprised. This is one product that is actually worth the hype. Keep reading to find out more.
After I splashed a generous pour from the creamer, I stirred my cold brew and took a big sip and then my mouth dropped in shock.
Was this the best tasting creamer I’ve ever tried? It just might be. There are very clear, very real caramel tasting notes – not the cloy caramel flavoring that is slightly reminiscent of real caramel – but actual caramel taste. Then, while the creamer does sink to the bottom pretty quickly, it stirs right in, mixing seamlessly with your coffee in just a couple of seconds.
I don’t drink my coffee quickly, but I never saw it separate. It stays mixed in for the long haul.
Add to this that I actually poured too much and over-sweetened my coffee (a habit born from using creamers that really don’t pack a strong flavor, thus requiring more product) and I am officially blown away.
Don’t forget that the design of the spout is also more attractive and innovative than your typical screw on lid and I might just need this creamer in my life erryday.
The Starbucks Caramel Macchiato creamer is legit and absolutely worth the Target run.

How To Use Starbucks Caramel Macchiato Creamer:
I love this creamer so much, I made a Instagram reel showing how I make it. This is helpful if you also, like me, use a lot of creamer in your coffee. With this one, you’ll want to dial it back to a healthy splash and then stir it in before adding more.
Here’s the video I shared to give you an idea:

With this method, I estimate that I used 2-3 tablespoons, that’s only 80-120 calories and up to 18g of carbs. While it’s not low-carb, it’s certainly better than the typical Dutch Bros drink that’s packing around 80g of sugar/carbs.
Not bad at all.
Dairy-Free Starbucks Caramel Macchiato Creamer:
After falling in love with this creamer, my heart sank with the inevitable: I can’t keep it stocked in my fridge considering the dairy content. While I am not 100% dairy-free, I do try to limit my dairy, so it just wouldn’t be a good idea for me to have this around taunting me 24/7.
But, when I went online to look for other creamers to try, I was astounded to find this:
Are you seeing what I’m seeing? Is that a dairy-free version of the Starbucks Caramel Macchiato Creamer? I think so!
