I’m a fan of coffee, and iced coffee almost more than hot coffee. When I heard International Delight was coming out with iced coffee that was ready to go I was excited. They always have awesome flavors of creamer so I knew that the iced coffee was probably going to be delicious. Instead of attempting to make iced coffee myself I usually end up buying it from a drive thru or a coffee shop or even the bottles of frappuccino , which can add up cost wise and aren’t always convenient. I was excited to see that International Delight chose to package their new iced coffee in half gallon cartons. It’s so nice to have a carton in my fridge cold and ready to pour over a big cup of ice and have it last for a while. International Delight Iced Coffee will be coming to stores this month with three flavors: Original, Vanilla, and Mocha.
When I normally order or purchase iced coffee my go-to flavor is vanilla so of course as soon as I got them that was the first flavor I tried. It reminded me a lot of a certain popular fast food chain’s vanilla iced coffee. It was thick, sweet and creamy. When they say “sweet and creamy” on the box that is the perfect description. Personally I prefer my iced coffee with either 2% or skim milk so it was a little thick for me. I would love to see International Delight come out with a 2%, 1% or skim version of these! (Maybe down the line?) For now though I just filled my entire glass all the way up with up with ice first and then poured the coffee over it and it was pretty delish!
I liked the Vanilla enough that the first few times I drank it I stuck with it instead of trying the other flavors. When I did get around to trying the other two flavors I tried the Original next and it was pretty good too, still really creamy. The last flavor I tried was the Mocha and while I really love a hot mocha I don’t think I enjoy drinking mocha cold. Does that make me weird? If I’m drinking flavored coffee and it’s cold then it has to be vanilla and if it’s hot then chocolate? Anyone else?
As for the actual coffee that was in the drink, I really liked the flavor. It wasn’t bitter at all and very rich and smooth tasting. It says right on the box that they make the drink with 100% premium Arabica coffee.
I think International Delight Iced Coffee is a great new drink that many are going to enjoy, especially fans of their creamer. I’ll probably be buying the Vanilla Iced Coffee to keep in my fridge for when I want my #IcedCoffee fix but can’t run to my favorite coffee shop to get one customized to my
pickiness liking. Watch your store because it’s coming soon and will roll out at Walmart on January 15th!
Do you think you’re going to give it a try when it gets to your store?
