It’s officially iced coffee season.
Iced coffee is something Chris and I can both get on-board with (he’s not a fan of the hot stuff), and if I’m being honest, we frequent Dunkin’ Donuts a bit too often during the summer months. (Well, if I’m being totally honest, we frequent it a bit too much year-round.)
A few weekends ago, I spotted something out of the corner of my eye on a shelf at Target (where else?). It was these Donut Shop Sweet & Creamy Brew over Ice K-Cups.
I was immediately intrigued, because the idea behind these particular Brew over Ice K-Cups is that no extra milk or sugar is needed. As someone who always adds both to her morning coffee, I was ready to put this claim to the test.
I’ve mentioned my “frustrations” with Brew over Ice K-Cups in the past, but I’ve finally succumbed to the fact that they need to be brewed/chilled ahead of time. Seriously—don’t bother trying to actually “brew over ice,” or you’ll end up with lukewarm coffee and zero ice cubes. Brew –> chill –> add ice is the way to go, friends!
I followed my tried-and-true method, and soon enough I was ready to see if these “Sweet & Creamy” K-Cups would live up to my expectations.
The verdict? Iced coffee success! Definitely perfect in a pinch when a trip to Dunkin’ Donuts isn’t going to happen (like on busy weekdays or jam-packed weekends). Chris was an even bigger fan than I was and he’s practically an iced coffee connoisseur.
Will I buy these again? Definitely! Like I said, it’s a product I want to keep on-hand “just in case” an iced coffee craving hits. Plus, it’s super-convenient not to have to add in any sugar/creamer. It was perfectly sweet brewed right from the K-Cup! (I also want to try the hazelnut flavor, too!)
Have you tried these new K-Cups? Are you a fan of iced coffee? Do you like flavored coffee? What kind? I love hazelnut and toasted almond!
