Mm-Mm-Good! That’s what I say each time I take a bite of Caramel Macchiato Coffee Ice Cream from Starbucks! Patience, CJ and I are the ones who crave Starbucks Ice cream. CJ will eat whatever I bring home for him but Patience has to have the original Coffee flavor. It’s actually a good choice. Have you tried it yet? It’s strong; like a pot of fresh brewed coffee.
I’m just a caramel freak. I love the creamy, rich flavor of caramel in my ice cream. It’s also the coffee creamer flavor of choice and the drink I buy when I visit a Starbucks coffee shop. What’s your favorite?
I received two coupons, good for 1 free pint of Starbucks ice cream each. coincidentally, we had just returned home from grocery shopping and guess what was in our freezer food bag? You guessed it. A pint of ‘Coffee’ flavored Starbucks Coffee ice cream for Patience…and for me—Vanilla Bean Frappuccino (they were out of my Caramel Macchiato). That’s okay. It gave me a reason to try things outside my comfort zone of flavors. As usual, they were very good!
If you’ve never tried it before, and love coffee, You can find these flavors in the freezer section in your local grocery store. If you can’t find it—put a request in with the store manager.
I understand that there are some people that don’t like coffee (which is surprising to me because I’m so in love with it), my husband is one of them, but if you’re still wanting to try this ice cream and are curious about the flavors, let me just mention that the vanilla bean Frappuccino isn’t as coffee flavored as the others. I think it tastes like very strong vanilla beans alone. It’s really good though.
