I’m a fan of good ice coffee, and I really like the normal Ice Break Iced Coffee, so I figured hey, why not try this new one, Ice Break Loaded which is basically the normal ice coffee but with added guarana.
It tastes slightly different to the regular Ice Break, but it’s definitely not a bad difference, it just tastes like stronger coffee.
It doesn’t have all the extra additives of other energy drinks, which could be a good or a bad thing depending on your point of view.
Ice Break Loaded Ingredients
The ingredients are simple:
- Reduced fat milk (95% where 1.6% is milk fat)
- Coffee (0.5%)
- Guarana extract (0.5%)
According to the nutritional information label, there is 32mg of caffeine per 100g. This is on par with the average amount in energy drinks in my experience thus far. It doesn’t list a quantity for guarana, but given that the ingredients indicate that it is the same percentage as coffee, I would assume that there would be around the same amount of guarana per 100g as there is caffeine, 32mg. This is higher than the average energy drink which seems to be around 10mg per 100g.
It is probably worth noting that the standard Ice Break has 23mg of caffeine per 100g, so there is added caffeine as well.
My assumptions are, that this is probably a healthier alternative to the regular energy drinks as this is milk based and doesn’t have a huge amount of anything unhealthy. There is 9.3g of sugar per 100ml and thats about it. By comparison, there is 10.6g of sugar per 100ml in a can of V.
