This is going to get me through my hellish work week.

Dudes! I am not usually a patron of McDonalds beverages (especially not their orange water juice), but I was pleasantly surprised by their premium roast iced coffee that they rolled out this summer. Mr. Nonny Nu wanted a breakfast of McDonalds yesterday, so I went to the McDonalds down the street and got him the Big Breakfast and an Egg McMuffin (con queso, of course). But, I honestly couldn't find anything on the menu that I really wanted. So, I tried their iced coffee. (That's not my hand in the photo, btw. And, it's not my car, either. In fact, I have nothing to do with that photo. I think it's just another person like me who discovered the coffee and thought it important enough to tell others about it.)

There were three flavors--regular, vanilla, and hazelnut. A medium sized coffee costs $1.59+tax (which, in CA means $1.72 total). But, this medium size is about the same size as a Starbuck's grande, which could easily run three and a half clams. Guess what? It was really, really good! I mean, you can't customize it the way you can at Starbucks and it doesn't come with whipped cream (I usually get the iced latte prepared breve with extra extra whipped cream), but the coffee itself is really, really tasty. It's totally worth the $1.59+tax.

This morning, I stopped by McDonalds before coming to the office and got a medium sized hazelnut flavored iced coffee. It's not as good as the regular, but it's still very good, especially for the price. Tomorrow, I will try the vanilla flavor.* This is so awesome! Other people think so, too:

(Note: Googling will also get you non-favorable reviews written by food snobs who don't truly love food since real foodies are able to appreciate food in all its forms, with the exception of artichoke which is not really fit for consumption since it comes directly from Satan's orchards.)

But anywho, this is going to be a tough work week, even though it's short. It's one of those ones where you already have too much to do and now, with the short work week, there's not enough time to do everything. I worked Saturday and Sunday, but yesterday was especially enjoyable because I was sipping on my yummy cheapo coffee as I worked. I'm actually hearing that stupid McDonalds jingle in my mind now. o/` Dah dah dah, dah daaaaahhhhhh! o/`

*I'll edit this blog entry tomorrow to update you on how that goes. In the meantime, tell me what you think:

McDonalds Iced Coffee: Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down?

Sold. I shall get one tomorrow. It helps that I can drive through mickey d's and not have to hobble in on crutches like starbucks. Hmph.

So the latest intell is that it will be about 6 months before I can do a lengthy hike... I may miss peak wildflower season. :(

Nonny Nu said...

OH MY GOD. Are you serious?? Let's see, it's mid-November, add six months, and that's mid-May. That's past the April showers and half way through the May flowers.


^^That's a sad rabbit.

P.S. Stillman, do you remember the heart attack drink I used to make at our old office?? This totally tastes like it but better.

Stacey said...

That makes a lot of sense because I just returned from my iced coffee run empty - handed .... those people use full on half and half and refuse to substitute lower fat milk!! I'm surprised the spoon doesn't stand straight up on its own in that drink!

OMG, they are a corporation after my own heart!

I am sorry your health conscious nature is standing between you and Heaven, Stillman, but I will pray for you.
