Hey-ho, Everyone! I, (Summer) am going to turn the keyboard over to The Workaholic today, because we’re talking about one of HIS favorite things: Iced Coffee. I’d like to preface this article with the following: This man’s main indulgence is coffee creamer. There, I said it. He drinks sugar in the morning. Every morning. But seriously? Have you seen the size of his waist? It’s like 10.25″ around. NOT. FAIR. So I don’t harp on him too much. But when I DO find the opportunity to feed him something with less sugar in it, it’s a good thing. And we like good things here, don’t we? Well, I found a much better thing for him, and it’s coming soon to a….OH HECK, I’ll let him tell you.
I’m not supposed to show you this picture, but The Mouthy Mistress drinks iced coffee sometimes too. (I generally prefer mine hot with coconut milk and cinnamon). Here she is gulping a glass down before her toning class. Shhhhhhh! Don’t tell her I posted it because I know she’ll kill me. (Or forget to wake you up for work tomorrow.)
I see you, and I know what you’re doing, Workaholic. Yeah, I indulge a little too. WHAT OF IT?
See her goosebumps? I’m laughing too.
So anyways, we got this pretty sweet shipment of International Delight Light Iced Coffee and a blue tumbler. Let me tell you what happens to these tumblers. I drink iced coffee on the way to work every day, and these tumblers pile up in my car. We have 5 or 6 of them, and when I run out of tumblers, I start using our large drinking glasses. Then when I run out of large drinking glasses, I bring the entire stack in when I get home at night, and put them in the sink for The Mouthy Mistress to clean up the next morning. It’s her paybacks for keeping the van such a mess. (It’s true you guys. I’m kind enough to have dinner in the refrigerator for him every night and he doesn’t even have the decency to open the dishwasher. PSH!)
I’ve toned down the sugar in my coffee in the past year, but I do still like to have creamer in my coffee. And I like for it to have sugar in it. I generally think that low calorie coffee creamers, or low calorie anythings for that matter, are really gross so I wasn’t sure how I would like this International Delight Light Iced Coffee.
I woke up the morning after it arrived and was excited to be the first to try it, but The Mouthy Mistress and The Nerd had already torn into the Vanilla flavor, so I opened the Mocha flavor and I was really surprised at how sweet it was. No weird aftertaste. Hm. I checked the ingredients and there weren’t any artificial sweetners in it, just less sugar. I like that, because I really don’t like artificial sweetners.
SO then I was really confused because this stuff was really sweet. The Mouthy Mistress tricked me into changing a nasty cloth diaper, so I set my iced coffee down and got distracted by the toxic waste coming from The Stinky’s butt and completely forgot about the drink sitting on the counter.
I went back for it about 30 minutes later and took a small sip. I realized the ice cubes had melted a little bit and watered it down. It was actually really good and not too sweet that way but it gave me an A-HA! moment.

I took the bone broth cubes out of our ice cube trays and filled them up with the International Delight Light Iced Coffee Mocha flavor. Why? Well, because every day I make iced coffee, the cubes melt when I pour the coffee over them, and water my coffee down a bit. We like good coffee here, and I want to be able to taste the coffee, not water and creamer. So I figured if I filled my tumbler to the top with ID Light Iced Coffee cubes, that my coffee would melt them and I would get just the right amount of this delicious ready-made Light Iced Coffee, and the coffee that we drink every day! Plus, doing it this way saves me from running through the drive-through of any expensive coffee chain on the way to my fancy job.
I actually got up early the next morning and The Mouthy Mistress had just finished brewing some hot coffee for herself, so I poured the coffee over the ice cubes, and they melted just the way I like them. I had to add a little more International Delight Light Iced Coffee to get it to the sweetness I wanted, but it was a great new way to drink my iced coffee, and I didn’t have to worry about the robust flavor of my coffee being ruined by watery ice cubes. When I add the cubes to my hot coffee, it gives me the perfect blend of creamy, sweet that I am always looking for. This ready-to-drink iced coffee is great on its own, but I prefer it a little coffee’d up. The melting International Delight Light Iced Coffee cubes make a delicious, swirly flavor, and because it is made with 100% premium Arabia coffee, I’m not losing out on any caffeine. And at only 100 calories a serving, who can turn it down?
I wonder how many miles I can get out of this half gallon of creamy iced coffee?
Where can you find it? NOWHERE yet! *evil laughter* But it will be available in your local Walmart store, located in the dairy aisle the week of January 21, 2013. SO print out THIS COUPON and keep your eyes peeled!
