Disclosure: this is sponsored and my AC has been replaced. My AC went out last week. Â Why can't AC units die in the middle of winter? I noticed it first when I looked at the thermometer and the temp was higher than its setting. Sure enough, it was confirmed later on that day. Trouble was, it wasn't an easy fix. The entire unit had to be replaced. And so, I spent 5 loooong days without air conditioning. In Florida. In July.

Needless to say that my morning coffee drinking routine was at risk with the sudden elevation of temperature. I had to consume my warm liquids early on so as not to be burned alive. How do people live without AC? The temp in my house got up to as high as 90! My saving grace? Going out for ice cream with my girl. During the times we were inside, I took great delight (pun totally intended) in chilling my coffee with my favorite new International Delight Cold Stone Creameryâ„¢ flavor: Churro Caramel. I'm a sucker for caramel as you may or may not have heard. So this is right up my alley.
I would have paid to have been a fly on the wall when this genius idea struck. I bet it was someone who had a broken AC and loved coffee but wanted some ice cream as well.
Nothing says summer like ice cream and now, nothing says summer to coffee lovers like the International Delight Cold Stone Creameryâ„¢ collection:
Once I got the AC working on Monday night, I was able to think clearly again (well, after having my chilled Caramel Mamiatto courtesy of some yummy Churro Caramel, that is). Â Oh and by "I got the AC working" I mean someone else did all the work. But I paid them so, that counts, right? I could barely do anything around the house. I think I finally figured out why people in hot places take siestas and then stay up late. Sheesh!
Anywho, I was inspired to put together a board that reminds me of summer, ice cream and coffee in honor of these fabulous new flavors. Check 'em out!
