One of my all-time favorites when I was a kid was Caramel Iced Coffee. You know, the frozen coffee ice cream that comes in a small plastic container. You pour a small amount into a mixing bowl, add milk and turn on the “blend.” It makes a milky caramel drink that you can take a sip of when you get thirsty.
