I LOVE this stuff!! I have been drinking Tassimo Cafe Lattes each day for years due to lack of options , but I truly love iced lattes. Unfortunately, I live in Germany, and the nearest Starbucks is a forty minute train ride away. Enter this magical item: I can have a delicious, refreshing STARBUCKS coffee in seconds, and I don't even need my coffee maker! How great is that?! The only point of contention I have is that it is loaded with sugar, but, in Starbuck's defense, each of the prepackaged coffee packs have TWO, not one serving. This is a bit duplicitous, perhaps, but it could be Starbucks's way of not wasting packaging, since they may figure that the normal person would use two servings anyway. I simply use half a pack, about four ounces of water, and another four ounces of milk, and I am happy. It takes zero effort to enjoy this product, which has absolutely changed my life. Hyperbole? Maybe--but I am a happy girl on a great early-morning caffeine buzz!
Naturally flavored coffee with other natural flavors
What our shoppers say:
Tastes like engineered coffee
I have had Via before....not flavored versions. Always tasted very nice, similar to fresh brewed. I'm living overseas and don't have access to the normal seasonal Starbucks treats. I saw this pumpkin spice edition and thought it would make me feel more 'in the spirit'. I DO understand there is no pumpkin in the mix and the spice is likely coming from flavorings, rather than actual spices...but this just has an overall chemical taste. The fake pumpkin spice flavor overshadows the coffee flavor and just tastes horrible. That said, Walmart had the best price compared to many other online vendors, and shipped quickly. Yay Walmart! BLECH STARBUCKS!
