I tried these out a few months ago for the reason that I love Starbucks, but wanted to save some time and money. I think that this definitely tastes different because it’s in a dry format that you add with water. Almost like crystal light drinks. To me, it was kinda bland and definitely didn’t taste like what you get in the stores. For me, I probably wouldn’t get these again. I would rather just get it at Starbucks knowing they made it that morning fresh.

Great tasting iced coffee, I love starbucks and there reward program they have. This has great flavor, but unfortunately is not cheap. I am a repeat customer there, and this is a great iced coffee from starbucks. I do recommend this to others.

These instant coffee packets are the best instant coffee I have ever tried. They don't have much of that instant coffee taste, so that is a major plus for those who can't stand that flavor. Also, they are really convenient to keep in my car or for camping trips. I honestly had these for work over the summer so I could have some decent coffee while on the road. I would recommend this product.

I love Starbucks iced coffee with coconut milk, but this at-home version is packed with sugar. The first ingredient IS SUGAR! I spit it out when trying it...so sickeningly sweet. Come out with an unsweetened version. Sugar is the worst. I received this as an office gift, so had I purchased it myself I would've looked at the sugar level prior to buying.

I love these so much! They are cheap and so easy! All I have to do is grab a bottle of water, pour in my Via, and I’m ready to go! It has nice, easy open packaging. I can fit these in my purse for work or on the go! I would definitely buy them again! They also make great presents.

Perfect for those on the go and in need of coffee! Love this iced via! Great to throw in your work bag for when you need that little pick me up In the middle of the day. Find that it's cheapest to buy it at a starbucks location instead of a grocery store. Great flavor and quick n easy to just pour and shake up!

We bought these for on the go, they’re okay not horrible but definitely not as good as going in for coffee or making it at home. So it sucked that it couldn’t be as enjoyable just cause we didn’t have time. But we just stuck to home brewing with the Starbucks beans for a while.

IM OBSESSED WITH THIS PRODUCT. It is totally worth the price. It makes me feel like I treated myself to Starbucks drivethru without having to leave earlier. I love love love the flavor. Comes in sweetened and un. I add a splash of cream and tons of ice. It’s filling too!

My friend gave me one of her starbucks instant sweetened iced coffee packets, and surprisingly i enjoyed it a lot! I would definitely purchase this when I am traveling somewhere without good coffee or if I just need some good iced coffee on the go.

Bought these originally for a road trip out east so we wouldn't have to stop for coffee all the time and I loved that there was sugar in it so I didn't have to worry about drinking my coffee black. It was so convenient that I shared it with my cousin. We just throw it in our water bottle and shake it until the coffee mixes and we're good to go. I've also discovered that these are great for long days at the library when there's no coffee shop nearby and I can't leave my desk to go very far but I still need a coffee jolt to keep me going. These are great because I don't have to pay for coffee and there are always water fountains near by or restaurants (when I'm travelling) that give you free water. I also use the Starbucks VIA and just pack some powdered creamer in my bag. I carry these in all my backpacks, especially my laptop bag. To be fair, it's instant coffee so it's not going to taste as great as some home brewed (and I also have really expensive taste in coffee) but for when I'm travelling or studying these are perfect.

I'm skeptical about this stuff. Does it actually taste like coffee? Is there sweetener already added?
