Dope or Nope ...

Iced coffees have become a large trend over the past number of years. We've even seen franchises like Dunkin Donuts and McDonalds heavily promoting these ... especially in the summer-time. Apparently, there is a large market for these.

I'm really perplexed by this. I love coffee ... I'm not a coffee snob, though. I probably couldn't tell you the difference between Starbucks coffee and Dunkin Donuts coffee (or McDonalds coffee for that matter). I also like my coffee pretty plain - with some cream/milk and sugar/sweet and low. Sure, I'll get crazy sometimes and put some french vanilla cream or Hazelnut cream in there, but that's about it. I'm digressing ...

Here's the thing. I like my coffee hot. I'm not crazy about it cold. I certainly don't like coffee flavored ice cream. And iced-coffee doesn't sound refreshing to me in the least. If I have something iced, juice, soda, water, and beer sound WAY more refreshing to me. Iced coffee is a BIG NOPE for me.

So, what do you think?

I think you need to brush up on your coffee. Coffee of any kind of flavor good.
Much like Beer Los there are many flavors and goodies to choose from. This is a good thing, for when you have the same ice cream, ice coffee, warm coffee, etc. for a long period of time it sucks. Bottom line. Coffee Goooood!
