Ever since learning that the mix in Starbucks’ Frappuccino isn’t kosher I’ve been really sad. While I’m not a daily coffee drinker, it’s a beverage I used to love during summers for a cold pick-me-up.
Last week, I found myself in the need of such a drink and remembered that I had to opt for a regular ice coffee.
However, I thought, why can’t they take the ice coffee ingredients I love (mocha, soy milk, and peppermint syrup) and blend that as a coffee drink without the Frappuccino mix?
When I asked the baristas for this complicated request they said that they could make my ice coffee any way I wanted: regular ice, crushed ice, or blended ice.
Best of all, the price was that of an ice coffee, not a Frappuccino, at least $1 – $1.50 cheaper than the Frap.
That was the only real downfall of the drink, but the flavors were nearly the same.
