This boring exposition is simply meant to set up a new coffee drink I found today. I'm not sure when it was launched, but perhaps it just arrived in my 7-11.
Bevnet.com only gives the new drink 2.5 stars, which, I guess, is understandable. Its not incredibly delicious, or even unique--but it is made by Caribou, which makes me want to support it. There is a straight Coffee version, a Vanilla version and this slightly stronger Espresso version. I like it, and I feel more awake, which is the reason for purchase. Additionally, at my 7-Eleven it was $1.79 with tax AND only 100 calories and .5 grams of total fat in the can. (Comparable to Starbux Iced Coffee Can which has 100 cals, 1 g of fat in 11oz...and, if memory serves me correctly definitely runs more than 2 bux (hehe)). Either way, give it a try. If nothing else, you'll enjoy the sensation of the shiny 12oz. aluminum can between your fingers.
PS: I'll try to return with some more stimulating blog posts and cute kittens in the coming days. I'm a little fried right now.
