EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A Michigan woman is being credited for helping to get an Amaretto-flavored coffee creamer back on store shelves.

The Lansing State Journal reports (https://on.lsj.com/2aYUPNk ) Judy Riedel Tugen of Williamston started using the Coffeemate creamer two decades ago, saying it has “a very comforting, soothing, almond and cherry flavor.” Last year, however, she learned Coffeemate discontinued the flavor.

The 73-year-old retiree petitioned Coffeemate via social media, called and wrote letters and emails.

Coffeemate heard her pleas and now says the Amaretto-flavored creamer will be sold through the end of the year. In a statement, Coffeemate says “Coffeemate received thousands of requests from its fans to bring back the flavor - but none were as passionate as Judy.”

An event to surprise Tugen with the news was held Tuesday in East Lansing.
