Caffeine. Coffee. The elixir of life. Anyone out that that hasn’t had caffeine in their system has not felt the reality of life just yet.
I was never a big coffee drinker back when I was in school. The first time ever trying coffee, I told myself that it was way too bitter (even if I added crazy amounts of sugar and milk/cream). After being introduced to iced coffee, we were on a whole other level.
Starbucks, Tim Hortons, Second Cup, etc were the staple coffee stores that I would get my iced coffees. One of my friends gifted me this box of instant iced coffee.
Each box contained 5 packets of iced coffee mix in these little packets. These are already sweetened packets, so no need to worry about adding anymore sugar afterwards. I suppose this helps out those lazy and/or busy individuals out there.
Easy instructions are found at the back of the box.
As followed, 475 mL of water were placed into the cup.
Opened up the package and placed into the water mixture.
I added some milk and some ice, and voila! We have our iced teas ready to go. Honestly, this was absolutely a great way of getting your iced coffee for the morning or for a nice hot day out without having to actually going to Starbucks and ordering one.
For retail, a box of 5 or 6 costs around $30 + tax. I suppose you’re paying a little less if you buy the box since an iced coffee at Starbucks is close to $5 depending on the size you get. My bottle is can hold 475 mL which is around the same size as a Grande at Starbucks, so I would say you’re getting your money’s worth along with saving the trip of going to Starbucks.
Unfortunately I found it to be a little sweeter than my own iced coffees. I probably would not repurchase this box but for anyone that wants an instant fix of iced coffee from Starbucks, this is a great option!
