Me too. Not worth it. The coffee is nothing special, it's over priced and the wait time is insane. DD likes their cold brew. I bought her a cold brew coffee maker for her birthday and she likes it a lot.
~ I brew coffee the regular way and if there is extra it goes into the refrigerator. That is my version of " Cold Brew" ... ☕😚

I definitely feel like I need an interpreter in there!! I only went because someone gave DH a gift card around Christmas a few years ago. I would have been lost without the app! I just poked around till I figured something out and then waited for them to call my name. Its much less embarrassing that way. :dizzy:

Ooo I didn’t know that was a thing. I love Dunkin’s Cold Brew but I try to only get that if its a deal. Iced coffee isn’t as good but still yummy. I just order with less ice because I’m a slow drinker.

I have made coffee ice cubes for at home! My coffee maker is a single cup one but that was pretty perfect for making cubes. It did make iced coffee nicer but I don’t usually have freezer space for the trays so I didn’t keep it up.

Shes your translator. :agree:

I had my cannoli flavored coffee today but now you all have me wanting another cold brew or something.:lol::yummy:

Funeral went good.Luckily I went with a friend and his son.I drank a Bud Light beer in memory of the family friend.Also had a shot of Crown Royal.If I drink,I do not drive and this friend's son was our designated driver.Getting stopped for drinking and driving is not worth it.I learned the hard way 2 weeks after I turned 21 getting busted for a DUI.Learned my lesson once not to do it again

I used to do that too to make iced coffee for DH during the summer. Iced coffee and cold brew are not the same. When cold brew started getting popular, I rolled my eyes at it because I figured it was overpriced iced coffee. It isn't. They are not brewed the same so they do not taste the same. Cold Brew vs. Iced Coffee: What’s The Difference? | Le French Press

I love coffee. All coffee. I bought DD a cold brew coffee maker and ever since I became intrigued. It's just about summer time here. I got one for myself too. Just what I needed. ANOTHER coffee maker. :lol: :rolleyes2:

I got it today and the coffee is in the fridge brewing away. It will be ready tomorrow. I bought some Torani salted caramel syrup to add to it along with the cream I usually use. Torani Original Salted Caramel Syrup, Authentic Coffeehouse Syrup, 12.7 oz - Walmart.com

I have several coffee syrups on my kitchen counter. Torani has been the best! Our Walmart isn’t carrying it anymore though; or they only had the artificial sweetener ones and I think those all have a gross aftertaste.

I get an auto-ship of 4 big bottle of vanilla off Amazon every so many months. I’m getting Peppermint next month. I think I started with Salted Caramel but I haven’t seen it in a while.

We just had to replace our coffee maker and I was all happy it was slim so it doesn’t make the counter look cluttered. My espresso machine stays in a cabinet until I need it. I really don’t need another either; but it’s tempting to at least put it on my birthday list or something. Sometimes its better when I don’t know these awesome kitchen gadget things exist. :lol:

I bought the salted caramel syrup at Target. I ordered it online. They are a little cheaper than WM too.

It looks like ours has it too! I don’t get there often so I rarely get grocery stuff there.
I gave up on Wal Mart altogether. I hate going in the store. It's always a nightmare. They also figured out a way to mess up online shopping. Anything that I used to get from WM I now get from Target.

I gave up on Wal Mart altogether. I hate going in the store. It's always a nightmare. They also figured out a way to mess up online shopping. Anything that I used to get from WM I now get from Target.
Every now and then I get frustrated enough to consider it. Unfortunately Walmart is 10 minutes away and Target is more like 30. I have 2 other grocery stores to choose from; but one is always more expensive (but they carry things I can’t find elsewhere) and the other is better for quick stops. So that’s where DH and I go during the week if we need something between grocery orders.

Our Target is REALLY bad for the checkout situation too. If I run in during the kids extracurriculars I need to allow as much time for checking out as I do browsing. The last time I went in they initially had only self-checkout and the line was so long it reached into the beauty area beyond the registers. The only actual cashiers they’ve had are a couple of people with limiting disabilities. One man is really nice and does a professional job of it even though he can’t physically do everything. The last lady I was surprised to see was a deaf friend of my mother’s. I don’t sign much but we manage. It was really nice to see her. I give her a lot of credit for facing that communication barrier all the time! I’m not sure I would appreciate having to have “I’m deaf” added to my name tag because its a position where people expect to talk to you and get questions answered. Hopefully it was her decision to take that position because she’s confident in herself. I just find it odd that it looks like they choose them only for that work.
