Tackle It Tuesday

Disclaimer: I don't like (hot) coffee.

My tackle it for the week was to try McDonald's new iced coffee. I had a coupon to receive one free, so no money was involved in this venture (the pic shows the rest of my coupons, should I decide to go back for another). It is simply coffee, grit and all, over ice with some whip cream on top to make it look good. :) So, the first gritty sip for me was not pleasant. Like I said, I'm not a big coffee drinker, however I love DQ's Moolattes and Starbucks' Frappucinos. I was hoping maybe this would be something of the sort... nah. But, it wasn't promised to be, so I'm not downing McD's advertising of the product. So, what I did was come home, dump the drink in my blender, add some milk to it and wa-la, a creamier tasting variety of the original. It just needed a little more whip cream on top, but I don't have any at home. The verdict is, though, that it is no substitute for my favorites!
I know, tough tackle, but someone had to do it. I couldn't just let that coupon go to waste. Maybe I'll give the rest of the coupons to my husband, who does actually like coffee. :)
