Mr. Brown Iced Coffee

9 April 2010 1 views One Comment - Add Your Own

Seriously – is there anything that doesn’t have a Wikipedia entry anymore? I ran across Mr. Brown Coffee at 99 Ranch Market years ago and have occasionally grabbed a few cans for a quick shot of caffeine and  sugar.


I don’t drink it often – which apparently is a good thing, according to Wikipedia, as it turns out in 2008 Mr. Brown Coffee was discovered to be contaminated with melamine. I’m making a wild assumption that the cans imported in 2009 (like above) were not contaminated – but I don’t let things like this freak me out. I’ve got a pretty strong constitution and it appears that the toxic dose of melanine is about the same as the toxic dose of table salt. So I’d probably have an easier time offing myself by eating one of my Mom’s old Melmac plates.

So what does it taste like, I hear you ask? Why, it tastes like pre-mixed coffee in a can. A bit thin on the palate, but in a refreshingly artificial way. Still tasty for a quick, plasticky afternoon coffee fix.
