The new Bustelo Cool® Coffee is the perfect way to cool down this summer!
I was finishing my errands at Walmart when it hit me: fatigue. Overloaded with lists, groceries, and household refills, I was ready to take a nap. But that wasn’t an option—I still had more errands to run! So I did the next best thing and went in search for a pick-me-up before heading to the checkout.
Pushing my cart down the drink aisle, I was on the hunt for a caffeine fix. I passed by the bottles of pre-made iced coffee drinks that just taste stale, and I wasn’t in the mood for the intense sugary buzz of a syrupy energy drink. As a thrifty shopper (who’d spent too much already) there was no way I was going to spend $5 on a fancy coffee shop concoction. I was looking for something different, and hoping I’d find my new favorite caffeinated beverage.
As I scanned the shelves, I glanced at a brand that I was unfamiliar with called Bustelo Cool®. The drinks came in cans, and two deliciously simple sounding flavors: Café Con Leche and Café Con Chocolate Coffee Drink. The best part was that they were portable, so they were a perfect pick-me-up for being on-the-go.
I grabbed a 4-pack of Café Con Leche Coffee Drink, deciding to give them a try and noticing that I had a $1.50 Ibotta coupon for them. When I got to my car I popped the tab and took a sip. Although it wasn’t iced (hey, I was desperate!) the coffee was fresh tasting and strong, but made mellow with a creamy splash of milk. And even though I gulped the rest of the can in record time, the drink made me feel energized—not wired. Satisfied, I decided that this was my new favorite way to get my caffeine fix! And when I had another one the next day over ice, this refreshing treat was even better.
I am a busy blogger who is constantly out and about, checking out new stores and restaurants and traveling to different locations for photo shoots to include in my posts. Not to mention, I frequent the grocery store to pick up supplies for all my recipes. When I’m not at home and need a boost of energy, I don’t always have time to stop at a coffee shop, plus it would cost me a small fortune. That’s why I always keep a can of Bustelo Cool® Coffee on hand!
This portable, pre-blended drink is a no-brainer. Best of all, I can pick up a pack of Bustelo Cool® iced coffee drinks any time I’m stocking up on my necessities at Walmart. If you’re ready to ditch the pricey coffee shop drinks that are more sugar and cream than coffee, try Bustelo Cool® for a real and delicious dose of caffeine.
