My first week at school has been rather fruitful. Been to all the introductory lectures, bought my coursepacks and met up with friends I haven't seen in ages.
That also means that it's time to up my coffee intake once again! haha, not that I haven't been doing so. What am I talking about? You'll understand when you have to go for lectures just after lunch or early in the morning! Caffeine really wakes you up!
And speaking of coffee, I have to let you in on something weird and interesting. Just last month, I was at a supermarket and found sachets of Nescafe Ice. Okay, Nescafe is a coffee brand as you all know, but ICE? Does that mean it's best drunk with ice?
However I wasn't that bewildered because I did buy a can of Nescafe Ice before:
I think I found it at 7-11. And yes, I do take pictures of anything edible and memorable. :)
So what's this drink all about? I know that recently there has been alot of 'ICE' versions of drinks. That includes other soft drinks like 7-Up. And I do suppose that the ICE comes in with the chilling sensation one gets when drinking these.
How in the world does it chill you? I have no idea, but I suppose that they use a certain extra ingredient. I'm not really sure what it is, but I'll definitely go do some research on my own.
In any case, back to the sachets I bought. Costing $2.90 for 10 sachets, it's definitely cheaper than buying one can of it! hahaa... how did it taste? I found it a tad too sweet but still drinkable.
I've been blending it with ice to make some sort of a Nescafe Ice Slush. Yes, I know, blending it with ice gives it twice the impact - the chill sensation I mean. Lo and behold, it really gives you a chill. Seriously! You'll understand if you try it....
The packet recommends you to add in a banana too - which I did. Verdict? Gave it a smoother texture but wasn't really quite platable. I think I'll stick to my normal freshly brewed hot coffee in future.
