mccafemochaI just tried the iced mocha from McDonald’s. They’ve been advertising their McCafe on TV and they’ve featured the iced mocha. Although the McDonald’s near my home doesn’t have McCafe they are serving the iced mocha. I suppose it’s to advertise the drink so that you visit a McCafe.

Maybe I’m biased since I’m so used to drinking iced mochas from Starbucks. My expectations were too high. I should have known better since I don’t really care for their iced coffee.

My first sip was right after receiving it. My first thought was that it tasted a little watery. So I mixed it up really well. They whipped cream was so soft and deflated that it mixed in rather quickly. (You can see the deflated whipped cream in the photo.) My second sip was a little better. I got a little more of the mocha taste but still it was on the weak side. The drink seems watery and thin and the taste is lacking something.

When ordering they ask if you’d like nonfat milk or whole. I opted for whole. I think there are 2 sizes but I’m not sure since they didn’t ask me what size I wanted. I think I got the larger size since it cost me $3.60. It’s about the same price as my Starbucks iced mocha so I’m not really getting value especially if I don’t like the taste.

Would I drink it again? Maybe if I can’t get an iced mocha anywhere else and I feel like I really need one. Otherwise, I’ll stick to Starbucks.
