I adore iced coffee. Love affair.

I keep a coffee pot in my fridge (about a liter) just for this. I don't add sugar or any sweetner. I add some half and half to the poured cup to get the color right and add body, and over ice cubes to keep it chill. To avoid dilution if I am drinking it slow enough for the cubes to melt some, I use cubes of frozen coffee.

I agree that if one drinks it "saturated with mega-sweet additives" it changes the character of the drink from coffee to "a coffee drink". But IMO so what? Not perhaps what I like, but who wants to live in a world where everyone does it my way. Not even me.

But iced coffee, just coffee, iced, is a pretty fantastic coffee.

Try 'Japanese' style brewing... its an amazing way to brew 'cold' coffee

If you mean cold drip brewing I am exploring that.
It's not cold drip... that makes a great product but takes forever! I found you can get the same amazing tasting cold coffee (unlike most muddy cold brew) using this method.

The iced coffee will affect your sleeping. Research shows that consuming substantial amounts of caffeine even six hours before bedtime can disrupt your sleep quality. For that reason, you will feel anxious. Also, you can feel the laxative effect. You've gained weight very fastly. Above all that reasons, you should not drink iced coffee.
