Why the Sugar

Wish this came without added sugar - Love the 'burnt' powdery-taste but overall the coffee is far to sweet

Pleasantly surprised!

As I usually take my coffee black (for strength & flavour) I was delighted with this strong, white coffee! A pleasant change & most enjoyable!

Yep-recipe needs reverting please

I've drunk dolce for 10 years and would say for me, Intenso was my regular choice, it took awhile to become aware of it as its not stocked in all major supermarkets. But that doesn't matter now, I agree with others that the new recipe has changed it for the worse. I am a sugar man, but I like to choose how much and what type of sugar I add. I notice flat white also has 13% sugar (Intenso is 20% from zero). I won't be buying these again, there is more dolce choice now so why they choose to compete this way is bizarre. But 0 x 20% saving on less coffee is still zero £ made for those who walk away. I'll not be ordering these anymore, shame for asda as that's the only reason I order from them!

I have no idea why there are so many poor revues of this product. I am a dyed in the wool Mediterranean side coffee drinker and I find this to be a superb cafe au lait when I am not consuming a raging espresso with brandy! Keep it going Nescafé!

A good morning pick up

I like my first cup to be creamy and strong at the same time and this hits it right in the spot!

New Recipe - Awful Taste

We used to like the Cafe Au Lait Intenso a lot, and have bought a few boxes recently not noticed that they're marked 'New Recipe'. When we made ourselves each a cup this morning, we both found it Yucky ! Why do you add so much sugar in it and why it has an awful burnt taste ? This new recipe is really disgusting. There is no way we can drink this new recipe cafe au lait intenso and we have to bring the unopened boxes back for refund.

What a flat white should be.

Tried the intenso after being disappointed with how weak the flat white tasted. Much prefer the intenso.

Never again

Made the silly mistake of ordering Cafe au Lait Intenso without realising that the recipe had been changed. I'm in agreement with more than have your reviewers - a really nice evening accompaniment to a bar of chocolate has been ruined. The taste is completely different, not just a little tweak. Very sad.

Now undrinkable

Well done Nescafe for making this undrinkable, with the addition of lots of sugar. Why don't you read the reviews on this website? It is abundantly clear, that the 'New Recipie' is a very large failure. Still, sugar is cheaper than coffee, isn't it, so I suppose that is more important to your accountants. Just to be clear, this is no longer drinkable, or suitable for diabetics. You should be ashamed.

Too Sweet

Was looking forward to a nice strong coffee (normally have Ristretta Barista) but all i can taste with this is the sugar which is not shown on the box until you dill down into the small details
