"For the work and expense of this drink I would not recommend it. We really like trying new coffee drinks. This one was terrible, it was like drinking chocolate sugar water. We even added double the strong coffee and it didn't help. If you looking for something like a Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts drink this is not it."

"This is a Very good drink. If you drink Starbucks Mochas, they are just as bad. Just remember, everything in moderation, will not harm you. Enjoy this as a treat. Not a morning habit. Jbhickory6 has a good alternate. That was also great!!! Thank you for sharing this recipe Maria ; )"

"FYI: SUGAR TWIN MAKES A TOTALLY SUGAR FREE BROWN SUGAR SUBSTITUTE THAT YOU CAN USE SPOON FOR SPOON. I AM DIABETIC AND USE IT ALL THE TIME IN PLACE OF BROWN SUGAR. ALSO, FYI, BE CAREFUL WHEN USING SPLENDA IN A RECIPE. I HAVE FOUND IT TO BE 1/2 TSP SPLENDA TO 1 TSP SUGAR SUBSTITUTION. OTHERWISE IT COMES OUT SO SWEET YOU CAN'T EAT IT. I HAVEN'T TRIED IT YET. BUT PLAN TO, USING THE SUGAR TWIN."
