New Thing #155: Orange Coolatta

Sign_OutsideIt was so hot on Sunday. We were at an outdoor event from noon to 2pm or so - the hottest part of the day.

We were parched.

On the way to our next event, we stopped by Dunkin' Donuts for a quick drink - we needed something cool and refreshing.

I was all set to get an iced coffee when I pulled into the lot and came face-to-face with the sign you see at left.

And boy am I glad I made that decision.

I'm pretty sure I've had a coolatta before - but I think I've only ever had a coffee coolatta.

This one was an orange coolatta - although my wife tells me that the proper name is a 'Minute Maid Orange Coolatta'.

And after Sunday, I'll call it whatever the heck they want me to call it.

Orange_CoolattaIt was so refreshing. So refreshing. I can not stress this enough. Look at this thing - tell me it doesn't just look refreshing:

It hit the spot.

The only drawback?

A little bit of brainfreeze.

But that's because I just couldn't get enough and downed the thing.

I can't wait for the next really hot day.

'Minute Maid Orange Coolatta' for me.
