Coffee Review: Seattle's Best Coffee - Iced Latte
This time around it's a road trip inspired coffee review! Was wandering the Shell gas station on Elk Grove Blvd. (near Emerald Vista Dr.) looking for coffee to take with me on a road trip from Sacramento to San Francisco when I spotted this little guy hanging out in the small coffee section of the fridges. A 9.5 FL OZ (281mL) can of Seattle's Best Coffee - Iced Latte for only $0.99! Maybe it was my excitement of discovering such a thing or perhaps delirium from being tired but something in the back of my brain at the time started playing Celestial music as I stared at the display. I wasn't about to pass up the opportunity to try it so of course I had to pick it up. Cracking open the can and taking a drink, I find that if you're not the kind of person who likes the strong flavor of coffee and only want a taste of it then this is for you. Light in coffee flavor, creamy with a bit of sweetness, this is definitely something I would pick up again in the future when given the chance. And really, 99 cents! Never thought that I would find something like this at a gas station.
As a side note (since a friend on Facebook voiced her disgust towards iced coffees), if you aren't a person who likes cold coffee then this might not be for you. Personally I happen to like iced coffees so totally don't mind it.
