Turns out, sometimes you should follow the directions. Allow me to explain: As my husband and I prepared to test out International Delights' new One Touch Latte, we made an unspoken pact. We would not squirt the sweet stuff for the full five seconds recommended by the bottles themselves and this handy-dandy instructional video. Instead, we'd give it a solid two seconds and call it a cup—or a latte, if you will.

We assumed adding the recommended amount of the spray to our cheap coffee—a not-so-great brew we bought specifically for this experiment, to see if the One Touch Latte was capable of working real java miracles—would result in a sickeningly sweet sipping experience. Boy, were we wrong. Not only could those two seconds' worth of spray not mask the less-than-palatable coffee, they also weren't enough to bring out the flavors of the lattes we were testing: caramel, mocha, and vanilla.
