Over the last few months I’ve gone from a person who hates coffee to someone who kind of likes it and now someone who needs it daily. We don’t brew it at home every day since hot coffee makes me sweaty and irritable so we usually go on a coffee run at least once a day. I know it would probably be best to break the habit since coffee runs aren’t cheap but I just can’t help it. Maybe I’ll kick the habit for New Years, you don’t know.
The other day as I paid my $2 at McDonalds (Dunkin Donuts had a line a mile long), I got to thinking about what genius invented iced coffee? Some guy was probably like “hey Joe, don’t throw out that pot of day old coffee, let’s throw it on ice and sell it to some dumbass willing to pay money for it!” Guess who the dumbass is now? Me.
We’ve tried our own rendition of iced coffee at home. We bought a bag of ice (ours somehow tastes nasty and we affectionately call it “poop ice”). We bought real creamer to use instead of milk. We even boiled down some sugar into water to keep in the fridge for sweetener. HASAY peeps, don’t judge, I’ve purchased every artificial sweetener known to man and they all taste like ass, so sugar it is. The problem is that I just don’t love the home brewed coffee like I do if it comes from a drive thru. What’s wrong with me?
This post was paid for by Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks and McDonalds. Not really but did you know that McDonalds has $1 iced coffee every day from 2PM – 7PM? Not a bad deal…
