Weird "Cooling" Coffee - Nescafe "Ais" from Malaysia

Weird "Cooling" Coffee - Nescafe "Ais" from Malaysia

Do you remember those weird “cooling sensation” potato chips that I found a few weeks ago? Well, here I am with something brand-new along those same lines. I was in Malaysia recently, and picked up what I thought was just a can of iced coffee from the store.

I thought that the “ice” in this coffee’s name just referred to it being an iced coffee, so imagine my surprise when my mouth was hit with a weird menthol-like cooling sensation after the first sip!

First, you taste a pretty basic iced coffee. A few seconds after swallowing, however, your mouth suddenly feels ice cold! It’s a weird feeling, but I have to admit that I kind of like it. It works a lot better than the cooling sensation potato chips that I reviewed a while back.

Since the coffee itself is already chilled, the sudden icy feeling isn’t so shocking. It just makes the drink taste colder and cool you down a bit better. It’s still a little weird, but not bad at all.

Have you tried this coffee? What do you think?
