SMALL! Intentionally deceptive ad. Arrived hot. Wasteful packaging.
Reviewed in the United States on June 20, 2020
False and misleading ad. The first two photos are of the large size. What you are misled into believing will arrive grocery shopping at 2am.
Instead, you get the two drink small toddler size. In comparison, a can of soda is 12oz. These are only 9.5 so hopefully you only want two sips per container. Because that's all is offered here.
They arrived with a longer expiration date. I was happy to see that. However, they also arrived at a temp of over 85f. So now they all have a funky aftertaste. Yum. Warmed over milk.
These also seem like a lot of glass waste. Tons of little glass bottles with a mere two drinks each. Yet, the alleged excess packaging they decide to trim is the secondary plastic safety seal over the cap. In today's crazy world of food tampering it just feels less secure.
My suggestions for improvement would be to slightly cut the vanilla, creamer, and the sugar. Coffee flavor and caffeine need to be increased as well. When I drink a caffeinated beverage im going for a caffeine boost. These leave you with more of a sugar rush. Increase size to universal standard 12oz, like a can of soda. 9.5oz is lacking.
I do generally like these. Oh well. The bigger ones tend to leave waste as the last couple drinks are warm or hot. I think I'll try these with added espresso. That's what they need. 2.5oz espresso.
Maybe they will listen. Or maybe I'll create a better contender. Only time will tell.
In summary, two stars were docked for a false and intentionally misleading ad. They even took the time to photoshop the correct oz of the bottle off! Two main photos are false and misleading. A third star was removed for giving me a hot milk product. The aftertaste from improper storage and delivery isn't pleasant.
Flavor 3/5* (arrived hot, bad aftertaste)
Value 2/5* (false misleading ad)
Packaging 2/5* (cap plastic seal skipped and wasteful tiny glass bottles you can't take to the no glass swimming area)
