Today it is 80 degrees outside and abso-frikkin-lutely gorgeous. I am wearing a tank-top and capri pants and I couldn't be happier. So, Tom and I decided to take advantage of the weather and walk to Dunkin' Donuts for some iced coffee.
DD Lady: "May I help you?"
Me: "Yes please. Can I get a medium iced coconut with milk and sweet 'n low?"
Tom: "Make it two."
DD Lady: "Okay."
She leans over to the guy who's actually making the coffee.
DD Lady: "2 mochas with milk and sweet 'n low."
Me: "Not mocha, coconut."
DD Lady: "Oh sorry, coconut."
The guy starts making the coffee. He fills two cups with ice and comes back to us.
DD Guy: "What did you want in those? Mocha right?"
Me: "No- COCONUT with milk and sweet 'n low."
DD Guy: "Ohh, mochanut, got it."
And he goes on his way.
Me to Tom: "Did he just say mochanut?"
Tom: "I have no idea. Mocha isn't even on their list of flavors."
Sure enough, the guy walks back from the corner and we can see chocolate syrup in the bottom of the cups. I almost say something, but it's summer now and the world is as it should be.
DD Guy: "Here ya go."
We get the coffee, step out into the sunshine, and take a sip. Indeed he has included both chocolate syrup and coconut flavoring. Unfortunately he has also remembered to include the sweet 'n low which, when paired with the actual sugar in the chocolate syrup, makes the whole mixture taste really funky. It's okay though...apparently Tom has discovered his new favorite flavor. He sucked down his coffee and is halfway through mine at this point. Apparently "mochanut" should be a flavor option.
Another triumph at the Dunkin' Donuts.
