Chicory Amplifies Flavor

When is a pound like more than a pound? When it's a pound of coffee with chicory. Housewives fighting inflationary food prices, take note the bit of chicory blended in some brands of coffee acts as a flavor amplifier. It does such a good job of bringing out the rich, full body of coffee, that you can use a smaller measure - and from each pound or jar of coffee with chicory, get many more extra cups - at a considerable saving.
