Iced tea is a fantastic drink at all times of day and for all days of the year, like this Wednesday afternoon! I like iced tea from coffee shop chains such as Dunkin’ Donuts or Starbucks. At both fine establishments I go for a large with three Splenda’s – at DD, a large iced tea with lemon and at Starbuck’s, a Venti shaken unsweetened green tea. Both of these wonderful, but I prefer Dunkin’ because not only is it less expensive but I think it tastes better. Starbucks is my number two. When I want to take a break from Diet Coke my number two grocery store beverage is Diet Snapple, especially the peach and lemon flavors.
At home when I want to have iced tea and not pay a ton of money I use Crystal Light iced tea packets – they are amazing! Each packet makes two quarts and costs a fraction of a gallon of Snapple However; I did learn recently, thanks to a sleepless night, that unless it is expressly marked on the package Crystal Light iced tea DOES have caffeine in it. Good to know!
