Those of you that know me, know that I am absolutely obsessed with Dutch Bros Coffee. I go there pretty much every day and I have no regrets. I go there so often that the some of the people who work there know my order because they recognize me. I rarely change my order because I am cautious of trying new things, however, at the beginning of the fall semester, I opened myself up to trying their Rebels. For those of you who don't know, Rebels are flavored energy drinks. Now that the semester is to a close, I can officially say that I have tried every Rebel on Dutch Bros' online menu. Here are my top ten favorites that are an absolute must try!

1. Iced "Hawaiian" Rebel

The Hawaiian Rebel was actually one of the last ones that I tried and it turned out to be my favorite rebel that is offered at Dutch Bros. The flavors to this rebel are banana, orange, peach, and strawberry. Yum!!

2. Iced "OG Gummy Bear" Rebel

The OG Gummy Bear Rebel is tied for my number one favorite with the Hawaiian Rebel. Not to be mistaken for the "Gummy Bear Rebel" the OG has the flavors of pomegranate, passion fruit, watermelon, and grapefruit! I may just have to go to Dutch and get this one today!

3. Iced "Laser Cat" Rebel

The Laser Cat Rebel is not as weird as it sounds. It is actually one of the most simple rebels that Dutch offers when it comes to syrup flavors. The flavors within this rebel are raspberry and coconut.

4. Iced "Tiger's Blood" Rebel

Just like the Laser Cat, the Tiger's Blood Rebel is also simple when it comes to syrup flavors. The flavors within this rebel are strawberry and coconut. If you are a first timer to Rebels, this is the one I would recommend.

5. Iced "Sweet Sunrise" Rebel

The first time I tried this rebel, I did not like it very much. The flavors were very strong. However, when I gave it a second try, I found myself liking it and so here it is on my list! The flavors in this rebel are peach, passion fruit, orange, and banana.

6. Iced "Ray of Sunshine" Rebel

This rebel, I thought, was a little tart. This is different because, in my opinion, most of the rebels are very sweet. However, if you like tart, then you will like this rebel. The flavors in this rebel are blackberry, peach, and grapefruit.

7. Iced "Stop Light" Rebel

The Stop Light Rebel is another one that I highly recommend for a first timer! The flavors in this rebel are pomegranate, passion fruit, and kiwi.

8. Iced "Palm Tree" Rebel

The Palm Tree Rebel is similar to the Stop Light Rebel with one flavor change. However, the flavor change makes a difference in my opinion. The flavors in this rebel are pomegranate, passion fruit, and lime.

9. Iced "Midnight" Rebel

When I first tried this rebel, I was taken aback at how strong the flavors were. However, the flavors are a good kind of strong and the flavors definitely go along with the name. The flavors inside the Midnight Rebel are blackberry and pomegranate.

10. Iced "Tropical" Rebel

I actually just recently tried the Tropical Rebel and it honestly did not have that much of a taste in my opinion. It took me about half way into a large to be able to taste a flavor. Now, that could have just been me, but I still think it was good enough to make my top ten. The flavors in this rebel are passion fruit, coconut, and blue raspberry.

I get all of my Rebels as an iced drink but you can also get them blended! I have not tried any of them blended but I am sure they would taste the same. I hope I have given some of you new drinks to try! If you do try them, let me know what you think!

Be kind to your baristas, they can make you some pretty great drinks. With the temperature rising and the days getting longer, it's approaching the time to find your summer staple to keep you cool (and caffeinated) over the next few months.

Starbucks offers a wide variety of cold beverages that really hit the spot during the summer months, from espresso drinks to fraps, smoothies, teas and refreshers. As a Starbucks barista, I've had the opportunity to taste most drinks on the menu and receive feedback from customers on the do's and don'ts of cold beverages.

While this is not an exhaustive list, I pulled together some of my favorites to give you, the "Ultimate Starbucks Iced Beverage Bucket List for 2017" that you MUST try this season:

1. Pink Drink

Three words: Basic white girl. If you want a photogenic drink that tastes like a Starburst and makes baristas happy, the Pink Drink is for you. It's a pretty simple beverage... this Strawberry Acai Refresher combined with Coconutmilk is sure to satisfy your hipster needs.

2. Iced White Mocha

This sinfully sweet iced espresso drink is not only one of the most popular beverages on the menu, but sure to wake you up at any time of day. Jazz it up by asking for half white chocolate, half mocha sauce, topped with a mocha drizzle, and you've got yourself an Iced Tuxedo Mocha!

3. Doubleshot on Ice

If nothing else, this quick pick-me-up looks classy while giving you the energy boost you need to get through the day. With two shots of espresso, a bit of milk and classic syrup, this drink is easy to enjoy in little time... it's like a caffeine I.V.!

4. Iced Caramel Machiatto

Surprise, surprise... Caramel Machiattos are actually made with vanilla syrup. Nonetheless, these espresso-topped beverages are absolutely delicious at any time of year, but summer calls for ice! Want to change things up? Ask your barista to make it with half vanilla syrup, half toffee nut syrup to make an Iced Salted Caramel Machiatto!

5. Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher

A sister to the Pink Drink, the Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher is a fruit juice-blackberry combo that makes for a pretty chilled beverage to enjoy on the go. The caffeine content is minimal, making it a great option for any time of day.


6. Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew

Cold Brew is basically Starbucks' version of a smoother-tasting iced coffee with more caffeine. The Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew is a standard drink topped with vanilla-flavored heavy cream to create a sweet taste and a marbled appearance in the beverage. Want something with flavor, but not in the mood for vanilla? Try the Toasted Coconut Cold Brew!


7. Mango Black Tea Lemonade

The Mango Black Tea Lemonade is one of the most popular drinks on the menu. Iced Teavana tea mixed with mango syrup and lemonade makes for the perfect combination

8. Iced Chai Tea Latte

Iced Chais - sound so sophisticated, yet so simple to make. If you order this drink, there is a 10/10 chance that your barista will love you for it. Milk mixed with a sweet and spicy chai syrup makes for a classy drink that can be enjoyed at any time of day.


9. Iced Cinnamon Almondmilk Machiatto

The identifying characteristic that makes a macchiato, well, a macchiato is that the espresso shots are poured on top of the milk and flavoring. Starbucks' Iced Cinnamon Almondmilk Machiatto is a combination of cinnamon dolce syrup and almondmilk topped with espresso shots, a caramel drizzle and a cinnamon dolce topping to create a delicious dairy-free option in the macchiato family.

10. Sunset Refresher

This secret menu drink is fairly simple to make with a cool lime base, lemonade, lime slices, and ice topped with black tea. When finished, the drink will have an ombré appearance that makes it totally picture-worthy!

11. Iced Caffè Americano

Calling all espresso lovers: Americanos are a Starbucks signature. The drink itself is pretty simple - espresso and water topped with ice, but if you're feeling particularly adventurous, you can mix things up with a flavored syrup. This drink is sure to wake you right up, no matter the time of day.

12. Strawberry Lemonade

Want something cold but not feeling coffee or a frap? Frozen Strawberry Lemonade is definitely worth a try! While this drink is not on the menu, most baristas are happy to make it upon request. Just ask for a combination of strawberry flavoring, lemonade, and ice blended together for a slushie-like beverage!

'Oh, You're A Vegan?'

When I tell people I'm vegan, people give me that exasperated look.

584

When I first decided to try and become vegan, I got a lot of mixed results. Some people were extremely for it, while other people looked at me like I had gone off the deep end. After a while and even now, I like to play a game of guessing what reaction I will get from people when I tell them about my dietary habits. Unlike a lot of other people who decided to go vegan for the ethical reasons, I kind of fell into it based on me realizing that half the stuff I was putting into my body was making me want to curl up in a ball and only come out for dollars on Wednesday nights at Taylor's. Through the last year and a half, I have learned a lot, from tips and tricks to making food taste good, to some added benefits of being on a plant free lifestyle. So for all the haters, vegan enthusiasts and people looking into making the leap, enjoy!

1. Trust me, its not all just vegetables.....there's other stuff too.

One of the biggest mistakes or misconceptions about being vegan is that all we eat are plants or vegetables. I will be the first to assure you that that piece of information is not true. There are tons of things we can eat if you are creative. Learning what you like and what you can eat will all come with practice. You might have to experiment a little before you find your groove, but it will happen. I would also put money on the fact that you might find yourself having that moment halfway through a bowl of Cornbread Cafes vegan Mac and cheese. Just saying.

2. No allergies in Eugene, too good to be true!

One of the best things that I noticed about becoming vegan didn't become obvious until a few months later. For anyone who has lived in Eugene, OR through the springtime, you know what I am referring too. Allergies are monstrously bad here as we are in the middle of a basin and many people have to shut in themselves to not like, die. I was always one of those people, but last spring and this one so far as well I have noticed a crazy change. While I still get itchy eyes and sneeze occasionally, I no longer want to live in my bed where the pollen can't reach me! The vegan diet has been proven to reduce the levels of allergy issues that people have faced so basically if you're driving people crazy with your sneezing, maybe cut out the glass of milk in the morning.

3. Happy skin, happy day! 

Another benefit to being vegan is clear skin. A lot of people who are vegan tend to have clear skin that is acne free. That is not always the case, but there is 1 key reason why shiny skin comes from veganism. Dairy and meat products are not the skins best friend according to dermatologists. Both are chock full of hormones that aren't good for our bodies. Dermatologist William Danby even calls cow's milk "nature's perfect food for the creation of acne." So you might want to kiss that ice cream goodbye.

4.  There are lots of Vegan options, you just have to look!

Like I said above, there is a gross misconception that the only things Vegans eat are vegetables. There are so many different things that are incredibly good and don't have any animal products in them. Also, vegan restaurants are popping up all over the place now so you will able to eat out in peace and rest easy knowing your environmental footprint will be smaller. Some of my personal Eugene favorites are Cornbread Cafe, Morning Glory, the Veg and surprisingly Tacovore. Their tofu tacos are to die for! If you're more of a homebody though there are a lot of different well-known brands such as Ben and Jerrys and Carls Junior that are coming out with vegan alternatives!
