iced coffee day


Dunkin Donuts had an Iced Coffee Day today, where, for a limited time only, you can get a small cup of iced coffee for fifty cents. Here in Connecticut, that means $0.53! That’s our lovely sales tax hard at work. Plus I think this “sale” is for those who are down thanks to the economy. Or those that just don’t have a lot of money, like me.

 

My dad enjoys being a pain and thought he should be able to get a regular hot coffee and ask them to add ice, and that should qualify as the same thing. While he has said this the night before and again later today, it didn’t dawn upon me to contend that what he would be ordering is not iced coffee, but coffee with ice. Is there a difference? Yes. Iced coffee is intentionally made to be mixed with ice (brewed twice and then chilled). I had the recipe, but lost it. Shame on me, I know. What my old man wants is the hot coffee with a couple cubes of ice thrown in which essentially just adding about an ounce of water. Not the same whatsoever.

 

Pick your battles wisely. And also, if they make your iced coffee wrong… why complain? It’s only fifty cents. Normally, around here anyway, it comes out to an even $2. And if you drink iced coffee as often as I do, those two bucks add up quickly. This is why I have a $20 coffee allowance a week. I don’t normally use it up, but I do have a coffee fiend. I’m sorry, I meant friend. Those silly R’s.

 

I had a homemade cup of regular hot coffee this morning to help me get started. It wasn’t the greatest coffee I had. It never is each time I use the vanilla-caramel cream I bought. It sounded good and I wanted to try it. I wish they make those newer flavors in smaller bottles to try them first. And I don’t believe in wasting money, so I must drink it all until it is gone. So I normally drink a little too quickly for my own good, and I have no one else to blame but myself for speaking too fast and shaking violently. Oh yeah, that happens if I’ve had two cups of coffee in one sitting. I had a few hours to burn off before I went out to get my two quarters cup of sweet, extra light with two pumps of the caramel swirl syrup iced caffeine beverage.

 

So it may be too late to run out and get your almost free cup of iced coffee, but just keep an eye out for it to return again. And not that I really need to say it (because of DD monopoly in Connecticutalone), but I strongly prefer Dunkin Donuts coffee versus Starbucks. Who’s with me? And did you get your cup?
