That would make 711 and Dunkin Donuts Coffee "froo froo coffee"
You're a fan of "carbonated granulated sugar (or corn syrup) water", "those ultra-ridiculous, way, way way way too ridiculously and absurdly and painfully too sweet to even taste the flavor date shakes" (another )
And yet you don't like those refreshing, wholesome and incredibly delicious Southern California Smoothies???!!! ....Seriously......Am I missing something??? " />" />
Yes, you missed something. It was nice discussion going on here about Mexican Coke, and coke in glass bottles, and someone came into it and laid down a stink bomb in the middle of the room with some anti-Coke jabs.
Al gave your coffee a good ribbing back (deservedly so), and I got a laugh out of Al's jab. I'm not a coffee fan .... of any kind. So, I especially found the jab amusing.
As for sweet drinks, I usually drink Diet Coke (and I like that in glass bottles better than metal or plastic, as well) ... but even the regular Coke has fewer carbs than fruit smoothies. Even all natural fruit and fruit juice (no sugar added} smoothies have about 45 grams of carbs per 12 oz. Coke has 36 grams of carbs per 12 oz.
Oh, and I loved the date shake at Shields Date Garden! It had a good strong date flavor.
Look who started this thread....
If you had read
to my recent trip report (yes that would have been nice- because I see you've responded to others)
you will see see the "stink bomb" that ended up in my trip report (but really, who cares??) One thing about discussions, there are going to be criticisms along with the compliments..
here it is:
Oh, and I did have the date shake at Shield's Date Garden
- it tasted like a sugar shake- no date taste whatsover, that's why I never returned there in 2009 after my original visit in 2006, however I did enjoy the date shake at the Orange Inn
aka "home of the original smoothie" much less sugar and more date. I also wanted to point out that if you add banana to a smoothie or anything for that matter, then it will add plenty of carbs... and I'll take natural sugars in fruit any day over added sugars.. ces1948

WJ I sure wish I could find the enjoyment in coffee that you do. I love the stuff but most of it tastes like "hot brown water" to me. I don't want to hijack the thread so I'll leave it at that.
