I tried this product last summer or Fall (?) and snapped some photos and put them into my computer files and then promptly forgot about them. Well, not completely true. I would remember or see them, decide putting my website watermark on them was too much work and writing a post was too much work... and well, it never got posted.
Since then I've bought 2 more of the House Blend flavor coffee concentrates from Maxwell and after making yet another iced coffee today I decided to get my butt in gear and tell my readers about it.
Maxwell has 3 flavors out; caramel, house blend and vanilla. I've not bought the vanilla as I have vanilla coffee syrup I use so I didn't want waste money on it since this isn't a sponsored post.
The caramel flavor, in my opinion, tastes... funny. Not all that good. I'd rather use an unflavored version and use my caramel coffee syrup - which tastes awesome - but their caramel version? Eh.
But let's talk House Blend. Because that one is good.
It only takes a short squirt into a glass of milk, almond milk, coconut milk or water; with a little ice and a shot of vanilla or other flavored coffee syrup if you wish or even a sprinkle of sugar or creamer if that's your thing. I've used Stevia and other natural sweeteners when I've wanted a flavorful iced coffee.
Not only does it taste good, but it has a pretty good kick of caffeine at 50 mg per teaspoon.
If you are thinking to yourself, "I don't really like Maxwell House Coffee though" well, I don't drink Maxwell House coffee as a rule either. But this is different - tastes different - and when you are mixing it with your own milk or water and any sweeteners or flavorings you wish; you probably can't tell what brand the concentrate is anyway.
Obviously I like this product since I've bought 3 of the House Blend (although the original Caramel flavor is still in the cupboard). I still make iced coffee using other versions (I have an espresso maker to make espresso, I use my Keurig at the lowest ounce setting, or I use my Mr. Coffee Frappe' Maker... but this is one of many and it's the fastest!)
I find them in my local grocery and Walmart grocery for about $3.50 each.
