There are fewer things in life that offer me a pick-me-up like Starbucks® coffee. That's why it's natural for me to partner with Starbucks in sharing about their bottled beverages that are the perfect on-the-go pick-me-up.
This summer, I've enjoyed my fair share of iced coffee. Last year, a Starbucks store opened right down the road from us. This was heaven sent because there was only one other store in the Jackson area and it wasn't on my way to anything, it didn't have a drive-thru, and it always had a long line.
Even though we have a store very accessible to us, I still like to have cold bottled beverages in our fridge ready to grab on the go, or for a treat at home during Simon's nap when I'm working at my desk. I can't just leave him at home sleeping while I run out to the Starbucks drive-thru, right? 😉
We traveled a couple of times this summer on road trips to Michigan and Alabama, and we're getting ready to head to Nashville next week. When we road trip, we leave very early in the morning -- like 4:00 am. Yeah, we're nuts. We fully believe that the early bird gets the worm and by leaving so early the trip goes so much faster, especially with the kiddos.
After about an hour on the road, Ben and I both are ready for a shot of energy. It's helpful to grab a Starbucks® Iced Coffee or a Starbucks® Bottled Frappuccino Coffee Drink (have you tried the S'mores yet??) to take in the car and drink at the early hour. The Starbucks stores are not yet open at 5:00 am for even a quick stop, so having the option to grab on the go from our fridge works out best for these trips.
One of my favorites lately is the Starbucks Doubleshot® Coffee & Protein Drink. I love both the coffee and dark chocolate flavors. Ben enjoys the vanilla. This variety is definitely the most effective for me and although it's not my go-to everytime because the amount of calories, I definitely enjoy it for the Starbucks Experience and pick-me-up while traveling.
Lastly, we typically have a stock of Starbucks® Iced K-Cup Packs for our Keurig machine. This is Ben's drink. It pours over a cup full of ice for a ready-to-go iced coffee beverage. You can buy a sweetened or unsweetened variety.
Which of these Starbucks® cold bottled beverages do you take on-the-go?
