Review: On The Go Cafe Mocha

I need my caffeine every morning, and am always looking for new coffee to try out. So while I was at Shnucks yesterday, I saw "On The Go" Cafe Mocha on display, with a coupon taped to the front, so I decided to give it a try.

Inside there are 6 (I think) individually packed coffee. It calls for a cup of liquid, either water or milk, for each packet.

I emptied the packet of coffee into my mug, measured 1/2 cup of hot water and 1/2 cup of soy milk and pour it in. The resulting mixture was lumpy and really thick. I then added another 1/2 cup of water to it. So now the consistency is more like a watered down cream of mushroom instead of thick like clam chowder.

Unfortunately I think using the cold milk was a mistake. I had to nuke the coffee for 20 seconds after mixing.

So I declare this a flop. At least for today.

Easy, no spilling ground coffee everywhere
Less clean up: mug, spoon, and measuring cup (if used)

Taste level does not come close to freshly brewed coffee
Too thick

Make my own coffee in the morning
Stock up on Starbucks bottled mocha frappuccino lite
