Afternoon Pick-Me-Up



On our back from King of Prussia stopping at one of the many rest stops along the way, I came across this Via Instant Iced Coffee from a Starbucks. I love iced coffee, I believe more than I do hot coffee. Which a lot of people find to be strange.

About a little over a month ago I was grocery shopping and decided to buy the Starbucks brand of iced coffee over my International Delight iced coffee, any boy did I regret that. I could not get into it. At all. A complete bust. So I was completely skeptical that I would even like their instant coffee. So I had to give this a whirl…could it win my heart?


I was shocked on how easy it was to make just add water, ice, the instant coffee and mix. I definitely added a lot of ice (5 cubes if you are curious). My initial thoughts were I am not sure if I am going to like this, I believe it was the intense coffee taste that I noticed. I enjoy coffee but I do not like a dark roast or I am adding a ton of milk or creamer. If coffee is really strong, it will give me a stomach ache. But there is one exception for me and that is espresso, and after a couple of sips that intense coffee taste became really delightful. The combination of coffee and Vanilla was perfectly smooth that they balanced each other out. All the ingredients came together resulting in a enjoyable glass of instant iced coffee. So, yes it won my heart over!


If you are looking for an iced coffee and do not want to travel to a Starbucks or local coffee shop I recommend picking some of Starbucks Instant Coffee found at their Starbucks stores. Click here to order their instant coffee from off of Starbucks website. These instant iced coffee packets would be perfect if you have a housewarming party to attend and the couple loves coffee, or keep a few packets inside of your desk for a good afternoon pick-me-up.

Would I buy this again? Absolutely. I would want to definitely want to try their Caramel Instant Coffee. Have you ever tried their instant coffee?
