Coffee Delight with International Delight Iced Coffee #review

I was recently given the opportunity to review International Delight Iced Coffee through BzzAgent. I was sitting on the fence with this BzzCampaign as every time I had purchased an iced coffee in store I found it to be too creamy, too strong and overall not very good (let alone the price?!).
International Delight Iced Coffee comes in three flavours: Mocha, Vanilla and Caramel Macchiato. The first flavour I tried was Mocha and I was in love. It has a smooth, chocolaty taste – my weakness is chocolate! This was definitely my favourite flavour. I would also add a bit of it into my morning coffee in replacement of milk and it gave it a rich and creamy taste. There is 150 calories in each cup of Mocha Iced Coffee with 29gm of carbohydrates. One carton cost me roughly $3.99 at Metro (on sale – the most expensive ran about $4.49 at Walmart). I was able to get roughly seven to eight glasses out of each carton – I was also adding them to my coffee in the morning!

Vanilla was my second favourite flavour. It tasted almost like a French Vanilla from Tim Hortons. The Vanilla flavour contains 160 calories in each cup and 31gm of carbohydrates. When added into my morning coffee it definitely tasted like a French Vanilla from a coffee shop! 
My least favourite would have to be the Caramel Macchiato. I am not sure what it was about this flavour but I did not like it – maybe I am just not a caramel person. The taste was quite strong and not as smooth as the other two flavours. Each cup contains 150 calories and 29gm of carbohydrates.

I loved the fact that I had a ready to use carton at all times in my fridge to enjoy when I got home from work (no need to stop anywhere on my way home and fight the long lines). It was perfect on top of ice or even just as is. It was an incredibly refreshing drink to have on a hot day. I also loved having a hint of it in my morning coffee in replacement of milk. With a carton ranging from $3.99 to $4.49, you can save a lot of money purchasing the carton versus a daily drink at a coffee shop (not to mention the hassle of driving there, line ups, etc..). You can find International Delight Iced Coffee easily at Walmart, Sobeys, Metro and Fortinos in Canada. 
You can follow them on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date with all the latest offers and promotions (they had a pretty fantastic offer back a month ago on their Facebook page giving away a free International Delight tumbler!).
Have you tried the new iced coffee flavours? What are your thoughts on it – yay or nay?

Spinach Berry Smoothie

I had to share this spinach smoothie as it surprised me with how good it turned out!
 At work we were discussing “detox” smoothies and adding vegetables into our smoothies both of which I had never tried before. My co-worker told me that by adding spinach to a smoothie not only does it have many nutritional benefits but also no odd taste. I was kind of curious to see if this would hold true (to be honest I did not believe her!). To my surprise, it actually tasted delicious, there was no taste to the spinach (and it blended so nice) – the colour was a bit off but if you can look past that it’s delicious!
Ingredients:
– 1 banana
– 6 strawberries
– 1/2 cup of blueberries
– 1 cup of Almond Fresh Vanilla milk
– 1 cup of spinach (washed and stems removed)

Directions
1. Combine all ingredients into blender.
2. Blend until desired consistency. 

And voila! Perfect breakfast solution for at work! Don’t mind the messy desk!
