You are looking at the LAST bottle Nescafe Ice Java that we can find on the grocery store shelves. It was discontinued in May, and for some reason unexplainable to a person like me (yes, I have talked to the people at Nestle), they are not going to bring it back. This constitutes a real coffee emergency in the Rose house in the summertime.
You could say that a good ice blended coffee is my mojo when I sit down for a long spell of scrapping. Oh, if I'm just making a card or one two pages, I can do with a tall glass of ice water or diet mountain dew. (No eating while scrapping or creating - that actually wrecks my mojo.) But if I want to sit down for a full day, I like that blended coffee somewhere in there.
I'll also get up on my soapbox a bit here. Jerry and I stopped at Caribou for an Espresso Cooler one day. Now we love Caribou - Shane used to work there. But gracious me! It was over $10 for us to have medium coolers. It's only $3.99 for this bottle of Ice Java, and it makes 20 drinks! Add $1.50 can of whipped cream from Wal-Mart, and now we're talking economy. I think we're going to have pass on Caribou or Starbuck's from now on!
I have to tell you, I have friends and family that love my blended coffees, too.
But Nestle's decision leaves me in a dilemna. Where will I get my coffee mix? Well, I have been researching recipes and websites. I'll figure something out without breaking the Rose bank!
;) Hope I gave you a good chuckle today!
