So I finally had the chance to try the Coolata out. It was actually an interesting mixture for a blended coffee drink. The way that it was made is similar to that of a milk shake but the base was more of a creamy ice. The dispenser was like a soft serve ice cream except it was mostly ice crystals like a slush in creamy liquid form. The process was to grab a plastic cup and fill the bottom with some coffee and then dispense the icy soft serve into it. Then they blended the mixture with a mixer that looks like a Dairy Queen Blizzard mixer. Now on to the flavor. It sucks. It's combination of flavors are lacking in all aspect. It reminds me of a lame duck. It can't walk well, swim well, or fly well. It does all that but sucks at everything. The flavor of the coffee was very light. The creaminess was cut by the ice particles. It tasted like a half cup of frozen skim milk with a half cup of ice and blended together with just two tablespoon of regular coffee. The frozen cappuccino at QT was 50 times better. So far, in my search for the alternative to the Coffee Frappuccino, I have not found one that was as bad as the Coolatta. Ok, ok, maybe the MacDonald's ice coffee was just as bad.
It's been 7 years since I last posted here! And it's taken that long for me to finally found something that is better than the Coffee Frapp. It's our good old friend the Java Chip Frapp. But the key factor is to use the caramel drizzle. With that, it made the balance of sweet and bitterness into an amazing harmony. Can't believe it took me 7 years to figure this out.
