Most Asian supermarkets and variety stores carry Iced Coffee in the cooler in cans. The stuff makes a very refreshing cool drink. Any brand I have tasted in the past tastes fine, however recently I have found out that I am diabetic and must avoid sugar. I look for a sugar-free brand but have yet to find one. If anybody knows of one in the Toronto area, please tell us where it can be obtained. If such a thing is not made yet, it should be. Diet pop every time is boring. So Mr Brown, Hello Boss or whatever brand you are get with it and make a sugar-free variety of ice-cold coffee.

Can't Find Any- Drat!

I love iced coffee, and I hate sugar, too! I can't believe no sugar free canned iced coffee is available, but I've yet to find any, either. I'll bet it must be a product in development, with the recent low-carb craze! Just have to keep making it myself!

Perhaps we should whip some up and go into business ourselves!

Fresh is best!

I agree, fresh is best! But there are times when one doesn't have access to fresh brewed coffee- that's where the canned stuff comes in! A poor substitute, I agree, but, perhaps, better than nada!

to each their own...I would rather go with out if it is not of the highest quality....then again I am spoiled...and man do I sound like a coffee snob...by parents have a hard time believing that I am a coffee roaster because they never see me drink coffee when we go out to dinner..but like I said I am not going to put my taste buds through the agony of nasty ass old...sat on the burner for 4 hours coffee. :evil:

Bad Coffee

Yeah, I know what you mean about restaurant coffee! I've been burned plenty of times by risking the local brew, but, I guess I'm just a Type T personality when it comes to coffee!

I don't know that the unsweetened or sugar-free canned iced stuff would fly, but I'd be willing to give at try.

Sugar Free/Low Carb Iced Coffee

Dunno 'bout the "won't sell" thing. These days anything low carb has a pretty good pre-made market. I think it has potential. Just wait till Starbucks comes out with one, and watch the sales soar!

Not really coffee at all

Now that I really read about this glop, it appears it's not really coffee at all, but coffee-flavored protein/lipid/carb water....

So, I guess the real thing is still up for grabs, AFAIK.
