terrible, sugary and not worth it
im not convinced there is any coffee in this product. If I wanted sugar in milk, I would have done that. I contacted bickfords about this and after 2 weeks got a response that was quite frankly rude and a clear copy and paste answer. As a Barista of 14 yrs, I didnt expect it to be overly strong but did expect some coffee taste.
We have buying bickfords iced coffee syrup for many years now. A while back the bottle size was reduced but the price remaining the same. Typical of what other companies are doing. Now the last four bottles are very Watery and not syrup like. Now we find that a greater amount is required to achieve the same flavour. We at first thought that the kids may be topping up the bottle with water to disguise how much they may be using. But this is not the case as I have opened every new bottle to check the contents consistency. I have also spok...e to other family friends about the issue and even they confirmed that they noticed this thinned down "syrup". I believe we are being scammed yet again and now have moved to buying bushells iced coffee mix and No complaints.
Too much sugar and practically no coffee
It doesn't taste like coffee. It tastes too sweet and mildly like licorice. I don't think anyone knows what an iced coffee is supposed to taste like anymore. The coffee is meant to be the overriding flavour of the iced coffee, not the milk nor the sugar. If you drink iced coffees for the flavour of the espresso, I would not recommend this product. If you enjoy over-sweetened and watered down drinks, this is for you. The end result is like Baristo Bros or Ice Break, only that you are paying less.
Brilliant taste but getting ripped off.
I was regularly buying this delicious drink at my local IGA store for $ 6.59 for 600 ml however it was selling like hot cakes and you had to be quick to get hold of it.
IMy local IGA is no longer selling it now so after repeated requests to get them to get it back,(to no avail.)
I went down to my local Woolworths store and Lo and behold they had it.
However to my distgust Woolworths is selling a 590ml bottle for $ 6.99.
They must think people are stupid so it's ok to rip them off.
Great product but terrible price
I love this coffee syrup and yes I agree that it's much more economical compared to buying a dare coffee everyday (which I was) but they've now increased the price $6.99 and made the bottle smaller! I am seriously considering not buying now purely on principle as I don't like being ripped off ..... I just have to kick the coffee habit :(
If you enjoy cold coffee - this is definitely the answer
The syrup when added to cold milk is delicious. Add Ice Cream and it lifts the sensation even further.
My only complaint is that it is hard to find. Woolworths had it but it dissapeared and despite requests it still hasn't reappeared. May as summer proceeds stocks may arrive.
It definitely tastes like coffee and is so much better than the pre mixed iced coffee in a carton.
Great flavour at a fraction of the cost
This product mixed with milk saves heaps of money if you are an addict of iced coffee drinks such as Dare Expresso. The flavour is the equal if not better as one can vary it's strength by the amount one dispenses. Buying milk in bulk economically then mixing into smaller containers and refridgerating means a cost effective saving overall.
A great economical tasty drink.
So good it's almost addictive
I bought this product during a promotional period and found it absolutely delicious - addictive (not literally) - it's THAT GOOD!
I'm so glad I decided to try it.
Added to milk is a sure way to ensure you have the recommended intake of calcium.
Pour it over ice cream or mix a little with whipped cream - naughty but soooo good.
Anyone who likes Iced Coffee will LOVE Bickford's Iced Coffee Mix - I promise.
