The problem with Starbucks iced coffee is the ice. It melts, which turns the coffee into a watered down swill that you have to force chug down your throat because you need the caffeine and throwing it away would be a waste of your hard earned money.
But in the future that might not be an issue because about 100 Starbucks locations in St. Louis, Missouri and Baltimore, Maryland are testing ice cubes made with coffee. The photo above was sent in my Impulsive Buy reader Caitlin J at a Starbucks in Bel Air, Maryland.
At the participating locations, the coffee ice cubes can be added to any iced espresso or brewed coffee beverage for an extra 80 cents.
Update: Here’s a photo of what they actually look like. It was sent in by reader Juba who works at a location in Baltimore.
