Pokka Milk Coffee Review

This one is a bit different from the other iced coffees, it tastes like cheap instant coffee with a lot of sugar and some cream. But don't get me wrong, I am not saying that it's bad. You an definitely make this at home and even get the same taste. As I kept drinking I detected a bit of a bitter taste, kind of like the one you get when you have reached the bottom of your coffee cup and there is some coffee residue.

The aftertaste was not bad at first, but half way through the can, it was a bit different. Not the kind of different that makes you wonder how you have never tasted this before, but the kind of different that leaves wondering whether or not that's a good thing. It was a nice cold drink in the late, hot afternoon, but I think there are better iced coffee drinks. I would still buy one of these as it was very cheap - $0.77.

The peformance is OK, nothing exceptional, and nothing bad. It is a little better than the other iced coffees, which leads me to believe that they have used strong coffee in the making process or it was brewed in a way different from other iced coffees.

Now, lets talk about the can...just look at that front. No wonder it retails for 77 cents. If you take a closer look at the people in the background, you will be reminded of your very old dot matrix printer...and what a printer mine was. An Epson, but I cannot recall the model as it was 15-17 years ago...maybe even more.

Cost - 10/10
Taste - 6.5/10
Performance - 6.1/10

Overall - 22.6/30...hmmm, not a bad score thanks to its above average iced coffee performance and very low cost

    1. You might have gotten a bad batch, or really old stock. The places where you would find this in North America don't necessarily update the stock at regular intervals.
