It's Not Good Just Any Ol' Way

I learned something important last night when I went to the Manchester Airport to pick up my brother for Thanksgiving. Namely: while Dunkin Donuts iced coffee is still the best iced coffee, Dunkin iced with skim milk instead of cream is gray and yucky.

I was trying to do my brother a favor--he wanted a few sips, and he favors skim in his coffee--but I only get Dunkin iced about twice a month, so I don't worry about the extra calories in the cream.

Then I find out that he doesn't really like skim milk in his coffee (of which he drinks about a gallon a day); he likes fat-free half-and-half.

Learned my lesson, but good.

Oh, you are so right about that. I'm off the coffee right now, but when I do get an iced, I get whole milk as sort of a compromise. Dunkin's iced with skim is just...icky!

It's taken me some time to adjust from the "extra cream, extra sugar" to the "milk and 4 splenda". It does change it...but you know what, you get used to it after a while!

I do cream and 3 or 4 Splenda myself. Reminds me of when I was a teenager and we'd make ice cream floats using full-fat, full-everything ice cream with diet fudge soda. We figured having no-cal soda made it okay! :-)

I actually started drinking my Dunkin' iced coffee black (with 2 Sweet & Lows, thankyouverymuch) a couple of years ago because the grayness of the skim milk in there skeeves me out so much. I still use skim milk in the hot coffee, though, 'cause no one has to look at it.

I know what you mean about the gray and yucky thing! I could never get the hang of iced coffee anyway. I need it to be exactly like coffee ice cream or I can't drink it. and, at this point on the scale, I really shouldn't be looking at anything with that much cream and sugar in it.

funny, I hear a piece of pie calling my name right this minute...
