Sarah from Obesity Help had mentioned these to me a long time ago, and I had not seem them in the stores until this week. I bought two four-packs immediately - I was certain I would LUUUUURVE the bottled sort of better for me coffee confections.
Not so. Upon chilling and cracking open a bottle, I did my pre-requisite sniff test. FAIL. I could not detect the coffee, it smelled like wet puppy. Not a dog, but a puppy. Ick. I sipped on it - because I was sure it had to taste better than it smelled.
Overall, it's alright, but I could not finish one 9.5 ounce bottle, not because I was full, because I really did not enjoy it. It was very blah, milky, with no detectable espresso taste, and the smell really threw me.
Now, as the disclaimer: I am a huge 'bucks fan. I drink gads and gads of their coffee, even at home, I grind their beans. I drink 'bucks beans all day long, when I am out, I order 'bucks.
This? Did not taste like a Starbucks product, I suppose I expected a sharp espresso and chocolate taste, but never got it.
