I feel so guilty – I’ve been drinking coffee while pregnant. I had planned on abstaining completely but forgoing coffee entirely is just too difficult. I did a little research and apparently as long as you’re enjoying caffeine in moderation it doesn’t seem to cause any harm to the developing baby!
It doesn’t matter how coffee is prepared – hot, cold, blended, baked into a dessert – I adore the flavor. Admittedly I end up drinking a lot more iced coffee than hot coffee. Most of the time it’s just out of laziness as my husband starts the coffee pot before he leaves for work and it’s only lukewarm by the time I wake up and want a glass. Lukewarm coffee is one way I’m not a fan of having my coffee so most days it’s faster to add ice cubes and make an iced coffee than reheat it.
A few weeks ago International Delight sent me a large cooler containing their newest product line – iced coffees. When I found out that International Delight was sending out iced coffees I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Would the product be refrigerated or would you just serve it over ice before drinking? Would I need to add additional ingredients or would it be ready to go? But the most important question was – how would it taste?
There are three flavors in the iced coffee line from International Delight – original, vanilla, and mocha. All three flavors were creamy and had balanced flavors so choosing a favorite was really hard. In the end there was no clear winner for me. I just couldn’t decide between the original and vanilla. I usually opt for a vanilla coffee but this time the original flavor was sweetened perfectly, however, the vanilla did give it a little extra something.
My husband isn’t a fan of flavored or even sweetened coffees for that matter so I enlisted the help of my mom on taste testing the flavors. My mom and I are usually opposites on flavors – she gravitates towards sweeter things like mocha while I favor things that aren’t as sweet. My mom actually surprised me this time because in this case she deemed the vanilla her favorite. We both agreed that the mocha wasn’t our favorite but would probably be a good after dinner treat.
On January 15th, these iced coffees from International Delight will be available in the dairy section of Wal-Mart stores. Keep your eyes peeled for these half gallon cartons so you too can enjoy the iced coffee goodness! In part 2 of my International Delight review, I gift another blogger with this trio of International Delight iced coffees for them to enjoy as well.
