Thumbs down to Burger King's New Iced Coffee
It's a pre-mix with sugar syrup and there are no "plain" or "sugar free" options. :annoyed:
Really BK? McDonalds can do it but you can't? :p

btw that was not a slam at McD's. They've been "doing it right" in iced coffees for a while now and have several options. You'd think BK would learn from their rivals how to do it and jump in with at least the same options.

I guess they are not targeting health-conscious people.

It sounds awful. I would not want to try it even if I wanted one with sugar in it.

You are right, Dottie..Our BK left town. Braum's has had iced coffee for over a year with SF chocolate or SF vanilla syrups or just plain.

Thanks for the heads up. The only BK's near me look kind of dirty and gross. I haven't set foot in one or gone to the drive thru in years.

I haven't tried the iced coffee at McD's yet. I played around with their online menu just now and noticed the sugar free vanilla adds 7 carbs. Yikes! Maybe it's from sugar alcohols. I would probably get it without any sweetener and add my own liquid splenda.
