The 5 Best Iced Coffee Choices

The 5 Best Iced Coffee Choices

Not all iced coffee is created equally.


Iced coffee is one of my biggest things like I cannot go one day without going through some type of drive thru and paying overpriced prices for some deliciously sugary iced coffee. I need this stuff to survive my day whether its gonna be a long day at work or its going to be a depressingly boring day in classes. Although, some iced coffee sold in certain places SUCK! This is why I only have a specific type of iced coffee I am okay with drinking.

Here are my top 7 choices for iced coffee:

1. Dunkin Donuts.

This is by far my favorite iced coffee establishment in the world because of so many reasons but the first being its taste because the baristas always put the right amount of flavoring, sugar, and cream.

Another reason is the price because it's under $3 in most places and definitely much worth it because their sizes are big enough to count for the price. Lastly, Dunkin Donuts is a big chain so its likely that wherever I am at there is gonna be a Dunkin Donuts somewhere within a ten-mile radius.

2. iHop.

I know this is not a drive-thru type of establishment, but dammit it deserves to be on this list because every time I go to any iHop the iced coffee is always rich and creamy and there are always free refills. Although the free refills are dangerous for me because that’s the best deal in the world, the coffee is super sweet and tasty as well as energizing for me.

3. Starbucks.

This is some really good iced coffee at Starbucks, but it is way too overpriced for me, a college student being paid minimum wage at her part-time job. But, whenever I get a gift card to Starbucks or I somehow find a twenty dollar bill on the ground, I do not hesitate to order one venti iced coffee from this famous, but definitely made for rich people, coffee place.

4. Donut Connection.

Donut Connection has a ton of nice flavors of iced coffee to pair with their tasty donuts, but the problem with this establishment is that there is only ONE of them in New Jersey and it is located in Cape May, New Jersey. Luckily for me, I worked there for a little bit helping out at my job, and got to experience this yummy coffee.

5. Chik Fil A.

Similarly to Starbucks, the Chik Fil A iced coffee is way too overpriced for what it is truly worth as it is not even close to being my first choice for convenient, cheap, delicious iced coffee. I usually only get this type of coffee on my pay days twice a month or when I visit my sister at work (she works there) but other than that I do not frequent this place for iced coffee.

These are my top 5 places to get iced coffee from and I hope it relates to some of your own choices because we’re all in this together when it comes to needing some really good coffee for your daily fix.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).
