In the last 6 months or so, both my wife and I have became sort of addicted to BK's, iced coffee.  We still drink our drip at home (mostly Starbucks decaf Verona)., but when we go anywhere we seem to have to run into BK.s for this sweat, creamy slight coffee taste drink.  Anyone drink these flavored ice coffee from BK?  We would just as soon not be drinking them, but boy they are good.  Anyone know how they mix these up?

Most of us don't drink coffee like you. Our preferences are very different. That said, we may still be able to help. Are you talking about a regular iced coffee or something blended?  What flavor do you get. Are you looking to make it at home or just curious about it?

Thanks Royce,  BK calls it iced coffee, it comes in different flavors, we like vanilla.  It costs 2.49 for a large cup.  I wanted to see what you real coffee people would have to say about coffee with cream, sugar and say a flavor like vanilla.  I really do not want to make it at home, but would like to be able to buy it in a larger container.  I drank coffee black, no sugar my whole life and still do but had to change to decaf several years ago.  My wife and I are both retired and like I said, when we are out running around we end up at BK most every day getting this ice coffee.

If it's anything like "Charbucks"  their adding pectin or similar like in a frap to suspend everything and give that creamy mouthful. You can make far better at home.  Get some fresh roasted beans,  Charbucks charges you $$ for essentially stale burnt beans that taste like charcoal (can be 6+ months old by the time you buy them on avg). You can still get decaf from a quality roaster and will be blown away how good the taste is from a good roaster.  If your out and about don't  bother with McDs or BK etc,  Google your area for real coffee shops that either roast their own or carry fresh beans,  massive difference.

You can buy pectin for home use if you want to experiment making similar drinks at home.

What's BK?  Burger King is all I can think of.

That is what it has to be.  Their domain is even bk.com .  And they do have flavored iced coffees according to their online menu.

I heard about BK, the Mocha BK Joe Iced Coffee. It is a coffee with chocolate syrup squirted in and poured over ice. But this is basically coffee. I dont know if it is the same with what your BKs ice coffee.

BK is high in saturated fat and very high in sugar.

 
Did you know...? Dark roast coffees actually have less caffeine than lighter roasts due to the fact that the process of roasting burns off caffeine.

If that's what it is, I've seen them pour it straight out of a carton from the fridge.  Seems more like a milkshake that didn't go through the milkshake machine, the mocha tastes like chocolate milk from a box.  It's probably cheaper to drink chocolate milk but there are ice-coffee-in-a-box sold in the grocery store dairy section.  I like the thick mouthfeel I get from a moka brew & sweetened condensed milk.

Thanks for the info, Wabbitt.  I have bought at least two different brands of ice coffee from stores, like you are showing.  They have not come close to tasting as good as what I get at Burger KIng.  Both my wife and myself have asked how they make it and have been told this much.  They use Seattles Best coffee (I would guess expresso) mix with flavor and add cream.  We have seen them pour it out of a large container from the icebox.  As more people add  information , I learn a little more, thank you.
