    Default Milky drinks and sugar

    Nine is one of the major commercial channels here in Australia and to see them highlighting sugar content in a highly popular drink is great.

    The fact that they are iced coffees would probably make people think that they wouldn’t be so sugary. Sneaky.

    Why do most coffee chains only offer a sweetened iced coffee? I have to admit to a pinch of sugar when I make iced coffee at home, just to take the edge off the bitterness, but commercial ones are soooo sickly! Why can’t they let the customer decide to add sugar or not?

    Iced coffees and other miilky drinks (choc, strawberry, etc) in 1 pint tetra packs are hugely popular as a drink on the go here in Oz.

    I must admit last summer I had an iced long black and it was delicious made with decaf, and another cold brewed iced coffee both without a skerrit of sugar and absolutely delicious on a really hot day.

    I must try cold brewed, it takes the bitterness away, I think?

    You may already know that preparing coffee with boiling water does make it taste bitter...

    Personally I like mine without milk or sugar, especially when ice is added.

    Yes it's very smooth indeed Sarah. Trouble is it's a 24 hour process but great in the summer.

    I only literally have a pinch of sugar - what you can hold between finger and thumb - but I will try the cold method next time it really warms up. I don't usually use water straight from the boiling kettle, but still find it can be bitter.

    Thanks!

    You have to be able to trust the weather forecasters Sarah.

    They do their best, bless them! But sometimes you wish they would just look out of the window...
