Reviews for Frothy Mexi-Mocha Coffee
"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."
"Didn't care for it...too sweet! "
"Tasted good, but too many calories for a beverage."
"Unbelievably yum!!! I will probably cut back on the sugar a little next time, but I love it!"
"I have not made this recipe yet but I have flagged it to try. Sounds yummy to me. As I do with most recipes, I QUIETLY change ingredients I know I can to suit my personal preferences and requirements without altering the outcome."
