Underdogs, you all know how much I love coffee! When the summer comes, you will find some interesting coffees that you can find in several places. I tried a few of those for you, and for science! Of course I need to say that “Summer Coffee,” contains affiliate links. For more information, please take a look at the disclaimer page! Take a look at some of the fun Summer Coffee that I have tried out for you! They will be described, and then rated on a scale from one to five stars. One star will be the lowest on the scale, while five stars will be the highest score!
McCafe Frappe Caramel Coffee Beverage:
This is something that I have been seeing in my local Kroger for the past few weeks. However, it was around $3.00 and I know you can actually purchase this real drink at McDonald’s for around the same price. I didn’t want to bother paying that price when I could get the real one cheaper at the source. It went on sale for $1.50 which is the only reason that I ended up trying it out. If you don’t know, a Frappe is a blended drink that is normally coffee, milk, flavoring and ice. I’m not sure what makes this bottled drink a Frappe since there is no ice, nor does it say to add ice and blend to drink. It is very strange to me because this is basically a latte. I usually look for drinks like this if they aren’t anywhere close to where I can purchase them. However, there are McDonald’s almost everywhere in driving distance, so I’m not sure why you would want this at home. Anyway, this Frappe was honestly terrible. It tasted nothing like coffee and all sugar. I couldn’t even distinguish between the overwhelming taste of sugar verses any flavoring at all. I actually ended up throwing this away because it was so bad and I hardly ever do that! I give this a one star because there is no reason to get this terrible mess of a drink. Go get the real thing or skip it altogether! It’s not worth it!
Cold Foam Cascara Cold Brew:
This is a brand new drink from Starbucks. I just found out there are two different kinds by reading the website. One is called Cold Foam Cascara Cold Brew Nitro. So, I went back to Starbucks 2 days in a row and had a vastly different drink. Let’s just say, I was confused. I didn’t like the one that said Nitro, but the cold foam is awesome! There is a huge taste difference between the two of them, and I thought someone had made the drink wrong. Basically, this is a cold brew coffee, with lightly sweet cold foam. There are hints of vanilla and even a bit of chocolate. This one is iced, and has super smooth foam. I wish I could see how they make the foam because I keep missing how to do it! The best part is this drink comes in an adult sippy cup! Meaning, it comes without a straw. Many companies are trying to get ride of the huge waste from straws and I like seeing this start to finally go away! Anyway, the actual taste of this coffee is great. It’s bold with a hint of sweetness. This is how I like my coffee. If you aren’t fan of plain coffee, or even more bitter coffee, then I would skip this. However, due to the huge confusion with the names of the drink almost being exactly the same, it could be hard to get what you really wanted to order. For this reason, I give it a four out of five star rating. The adult sippy cup gets a 5 out of 5!
Java Momma Victorian Caramel:
This is shameless self promotion time! I am a Java Momma rep, and I honestly enjoy the product or I wouldn’t say anything about it. I like to order the trial sizes first so I can test them out. If I didn’t like them, I wouldn’t pass along the information. This one was called Victorian Caramel. Man, did this not only smell good, but taste really good as well. Since it’s summer, I put a bit of a summer twist by adding ice, soy milk, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. This is ground coffee, so it’s something that you make at home, and take with you where ever you wish! Since it’s something that you can personalize, and this is such a great base to make your coffee, you can pretty much have whatever you want! Because I sell it, I will give it a 4 out a 5. However, the flavor of this coffee is amazing and I hope that you end up trying it for yourself!
