Stop: Fountain City Coffee
Drink: Snickers Freeze
Hi everyone! Welcome back to Hometown Cravings! I visited Fountain City Coffee once again to try one of their best selling items: The Snickers Freezer. In contrast to the Heath Freezer, I got last time, they don’t have crunched up candy bars but instead use syrup. Since none of my qualifications for this blog state that a coffee must have finely ground candy, I said: “why not?” and decided to give it a go!
The Snickers Freezer has much the same consistency of the Heath, sans candy dust. Like a milkshake- but better! The predominant flavor is nutty with mocha undertones. I feel like the sweetness is trying to emulate the nougat, even if it’s not, the nougat taste certainly comes to mind. It also has a slight bitterness that sticks around as an afterthought to the mocha.
When it comes to using the syrup to create flavors, you can tell. That being said, it’s not bad at all. In fact, they do get admirably close to the flavor of a Snickers candy bar. And for that, I applaud them.
Would I recommend this drink? Certainly! If you’re a big Snickers fan, this will satisfy any craving you have for the treat. I got the freezer, but they can make it in a hot variant or regular Iced.
