Is Gross. Ugggh. What a waste of $3. I don’t like the taste of the sugar free vanilla syrup. I should have just got a reg non sweetened iced coffee. Oh well saved some carbs. I made sure they used cream, but I’m sure it wasn’t HWC.
Agreed, it’s gross.
I go to Starbucks and ask them to specifically add heavy cream in my iced coffee and it’s a wonderful treat!
Yes. I did that yesterday. It was a good one. I thought McD might be a bit cheaper. But no.
Just so you know, you can order McDonalds iced coffee without any liquid sugar. I do it that way, I also ask them to double the cream. Here in Canada at least, it’s currently Dollar Drinks Days during the summer and ice coffee is only a dollar.
I’ve found that a lot of places when they say “cream” they are referring to half and half, which has carbs, not HWC, but I could be wrong.
I think you are right. I was assuming 18%. Not the best, but I counted the extra. Luckily it was gross and I didn’t drink it anyway.
I’m going to try that. I’m in Canada and $1 iced coffee would be awesome right now.
The small and medium are both $1, if you order the large they’ll charge you full price so if you want more get two mediums! What I do though is order it with no ice, no liquid sugar, and double the cream, and then ask for a cup of ice on the side. You get twice as much that way too and all for the $1. Also, McDonald’s cream is 18%.
Awesome! Super helpful.
Does anyone know if it is possible to do a cappuccino with cream (not milk)? Is my local barista going to think I have gone doolally?
Don’t mind it and won’t payout for starbucks. But too many carbs. Plain home brew is very good. I also recently ordered a small (16oz). And a large cup of ice. Combined in the large cup and enjoyed.
Don’t know, but it certainly sounds feasible. And do you really care what some barista thinks? And besides, I’ll bet that if you tip well, it won’t be a problem.
Unless they’ve changed it McDonalds uses light cream.
I’ve done it, even thought it’s strong as hell with not a lot of coffee the heavy cream (to me) drown out the coffee flavor. A double would probably solve that but I never re-attempted it.
Huge fan of my own iced coffee but wonder if Starbucks has different prices (drastically) in different parts of the country. I only pay probably $0.30 more for a Starbucks iced coffee than I would Dunkin Donuts or McDonalds.
I just do coffee, hwc, and unflavored almond milk and it’s good for me! I’ll even let it chill or have it hot!
Probably. I’m pretty sure cream doesn’t foam which is why it’s always milk. If you ask for an Americano you’ll get an espresso with hot water added so that it’s basically a coffee made from espresso beans, That is served black and you add cream in just the same way you would a regular coffee (but it’s waaaay better).
I don’t know about asking for an Americano (), but that is my usual coffee. I used to love a cappuccino and hence the question on whether it makes any sense to ask for a cap made with cream.
I might try it and see what I get.
Can’t do a cappuccino or a flat white with HWC. The fat content doesn’t allow for the foam to build. The HWC doesn’t get foamy no matter how much you steam it. A barista would know, bcz that’s literally all they do all day.
Maybe I do some negotiations… make a double strength cap with a small amount of milk to get the froth, then fill the cup with cream… I wonder…
