A couple weeks ago I took Levi to the Twin Cities Harvest Festival and Corn Maze. We decided to make a day of it and went with Kelly from Muddy Flowers and her family. Since it was also National Coffee Day, I thought it would be fun to pack a picnic basket of snacks and some International Delight’s iced coffee for the trip.
After all the time we spent running through the maze, we definitely needed a snack break. It was a hot day, too, so the International Delight Iced Mocha definitely hit the spot. The corn maze is 19.5 acres – that’s HUGE, just in case you’re wondering. You can check out the video Kelly’s family made while we were there:
You can see more of our adventures at the maze in my other post. For now, let’s get back to the cute picnic basket I packed. As I mentioned, after all that time in the maze, we were all pretty tired and hungry. I had packed juice pouches for the kids and iced coffee for the adults, but the kids had a different idea. They all wanted to taste what the adults were drinking.
Keegan was a little more skeptical than the girls and had to give the International Delight a sniff test before tasting it.
Everyone thought it was pretty tasty. Even Ryan, who HATES coffee, had to agree it “wasn’t that bad.”
Kelly and I definitely drank the most, but between chasing kids and trying to take photos, neither of us managed to get into any of the pictures we took of our little corn maze picnic.
I did, however, have a little bit of iced coffee leftover that day, so I surprised Amy from Grinning Cheek To Cheek before our shopping trip later that afternoon. She was supposed to come to the corn maze with us, but she wasn’t feeling good so she couldn’t make it.
That’s right. Those are monogrammed insulated glasses with our initials. See, Amy’s the one that originally introduced me to International Delight iced coffee. I wasn’t much of an iced coffee drinker, but she had a carton in her fridge and it was just so easy to fill a glass with ice and pour it over for a sweet treat.
She’s also the one that introduced me to the awesome double-wall acrylic glasses. I love them, and now I take my “J” cup everywhere with me. We filled our glasses before heading out shopping for 80’s outfits for a party we were going to.
I thought it was awesome. One carton of International Delight’s iced mocha costs about the same as ONE iced coffee drink at a coffee shop, but you get way more than that out of a single 1/2 gallon carton.
International Delight iced coffee can be found at most major grocery stores in the refrigerated section. You can find more information and recipes (including iced coffee cocktails!) on their Facebook page.
What’s your favorite iced coffee drink?
