A childhood favorite grows up in the form of a wonderful coffee. This cotton candy coffee is what you need all summer long!


The scorching heat of Summer is on! All I can think of is a range of chilled drinks to enjoy through the day. Whether it is juice, coffee or cold drinks, we are up for everything all day long. 

It is fun to make a lot of flavorful drinks at home and enjoy them with family. I prefer to do that rather than visiting a coffee store each time. However it may not always be feasible to make a new drink every now and then. For those times I LOVE to have International Delight® Iced Coffee on a few cubes of ice. And yes, they make a great starter for an array of chilled drinks you can enjoy all summer long! 


Recently I brought home International Delight® Iced Coffee from Walmart. These coffees come in half gallon packs that are fridge friendly and ready to drink. Besides, they are also affordable and convenient. Just pop the cap and pour onto some ice. You have a glass full of delicious cafe style coffee ready! And use the same to make some yummy combinations of coffee too.




One of my favorite sweet as a kid was cotton candy. Made from spun sugar and added flavor, I would love to have this at local fairs, on the beach and sometimes even at home. And my favorite drink now is a glass of chilled cold coffee. So what better than combining the two to make a drink that is delicious and super easy to make!

Ever since the unicorn craze came into food I have a bottle of candy cane extract in my pantry. It is a perfect way to weave some magic into ordinary drinks and smoothies. Besides I also got some cherry flavored cotton candy on my last grocery shopping trip. And with a box of International Delight® Vanilla Iced Coffee and ice cream in my refrigerator, I was all set to make this drink.


The procedure is rather simple. Just whip up the coffee in a blender, add to a glass and top it with cream, cotton candy and a cherry on top. Not only does the drink come together in under 10 minutes, it is perfect to cool off in the summer heat. The presentation is chic for a summer party or for a bbq you might be hosting.

Variations

With the coffee being out of the box, the taste and flavor does not change depending on who makes it! I used the Vanilla flavor coffee but the Mocha one works just as well. The combination of chocolate and cotton candy is a great one. 

Getting cotton candy extract should be an easy task. However, if you cannot find it anywhere, just add a BIG ball of cotton candy while making the coffee. Make sure it does not become over sweet though. 


Adding cream and maraschino cherry is optional, but completes the drink beautifully. Skip one or both if you do not like it. 

So run now to the closest store and grab a box of International Delight® Vanilla and Mocha Iced Coffee. Serve up a bold blast of vanilla flavor in seconds! Just open the fridge, pour over ice and enjoy. Chocolate and coffee flavors: the perfect pair. Their Mocha Iced Coffee come ready to drink, so all you need is ice and a frosty glass. Yum!
