I don’t drink coffee -at all. I never have. So, of course it stands to reason that EVERY member of my family can’t get enough of it – my husband and ALL the kids. lol When I was given the opportunity to try the new International Delight Iced Coffees the excitement in our home was actually palpable. A shipping carton arrived at the door with three half-gallon cartons of the delicious beverages, nestled carefully inside a dry ice filled styrofoam cooler. My husband was still at work, so I had to monitor very closely to make sure he would get a chance to try some, too!
It may seem really silly, but I love the packaging! Something about it seems so festive and special. It almost looks like it should be an ice cream carton. I like the cool blue and white colors, and the product featured front and center in a very inviting presentation. If packaging can sell a product, this certainly can. I don’t even care for coffee and I wanted to try it.
Each flavor of the International Delight Iced Coffees is creamy and smooth. To me, they immediately seemed like beverages to be served at a special dinner or a party, but they are a perfect refreshing treat, over ice, after a workout or a long day at work, too. My kids definitely picked Mocha as their favorite, with Vanilla running a close second, and my husband, our hard-core coffee drinker, preferred the original and said Vanilla was his second choice. So, is this non-coffee drinker a convert to these sweet, creamy versions of iced java? Not so much, but the Vanilla was definitely my favorite of the three. I’m still not a coffee drinker, but there is no doubt that for those who enjoy coffee, International Delight Iced Coffees are delicious treats that are perfect for everyday refreshment or for holidays and special gatherings! I have a sneaky suspicion that they would be amazing in several recipes that call for coffee, too. Imagine the Mocha in your favorite chocolate cake recipe or the Vanilla baked into tiramisu!
