Every morning when I arise, the first thing I do is drag my feet on my way into the kitchen to put on a pot of coffee. I have been an avid coffee drinker for years and I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be able to survive without it in the morning. My husband likes to refer to my morning coffee as my “dose of happy.”
When I heard of the new line of Iced Coffee by International Delight, I was very excited to try it out. I love drinking Iced Coffee and really like the idea that it comes ready made and you don’t have to take the time to brew it. I love gourmet coffee and other specialty coffee that vary from the norm.
The three flavors that I received were the Original, Vanilla and Mocha. I knew right away that Vanilla would become one of my favorites, because when it comes to flavoring my coffee with creamer, vanilla is my flavor of choice.
The Iced Coffee arrived in a refrigerated box from Fed Ex. I placed the three cartons in my refrigerator. They fit in my side compartment perfectly! The morning after I got out the vanilla, opened it up and poured myself a cup. I also received a nice cup for my coffee that is intended to keep it cold. I think having a great cup like this is important to drinking iced coffee because it keeps your ice cold and doesn’t make your coffee all watery and thin when your ice melts.
The coffee was very smooth and flavorful. I believe I had 2 cups for my first sample! You know, that is important during taste-testing. 🙂 The flavored coffee, vanilla and mocha, had the perfect amount of flavor in them. Issues I have run across in other specialty coffee either have had way too little flavoring, or an over abundance that removes the coffee taste all together. Call me crazy, but when I drink flavored coffee I still love for the coffee flavor to be present because that is why I’m drinking coffee to begin with!
Although the Vanilla flavor was my favorite, my second favorite was the Mocha and then the Original. I absolutely loved all three and can’t wait to purchase them when they come to the dairy section of Walmart stores on January 15th!
My husband, who despises my warm, black coffee, decided he would give the iced coffee a shot. Guess what? He LIKED it! He even says to me… we should get some of this every week when it comes out in the store. Yes, please!
