Starbucks’ Iced Latte which was promoted together with Starbucks’ Dark Berry Mocha Frappuccino in Singapore is a refreshing drink. It’s good as a thirst-quenching drink and it’s an enjoyable drink. What’s more, one can add Irish cream to it, making it even a more wonderful drink.

Retailing at SGD $6.30 at all Starbucks Singapore.

UCC Blended Coffee

We all are familiar with UCC when it comes to gourmet coffee as its name is a household name in Japan and many other countries.

UCC Blended Coffee which can be purchased at Carrefour, Singapore for SGD $1.60 is yet another great coffee drink from UCC. It has distinctive and strong coffee flavor and you can easily tell it’s not a milk coffee. In fact, it uses skimmed milk and it’s made in Japan.

Coffee May Delay Alzheimer’s

According to the latest studies, researchers claimed that three large cups of coffee a day could help to slow the progress of Alzheimer’s disease and may even reverse the condition.

Researchers from the University of South Florida studied 55 mice that had been genetically engineered to develop dementia symptoms identical to those of Alzheimer’s as they aged. Before treatment the mice, which were aged 18 to 19 months, about 70 years in human terms, had performed poorly in the memory tests.

Half the mice were given a daily dose of caffeine in their drinking water — equivalent to a human consuming about six espresso shots or 500mg of pure caffeine; while the other half continued to drink ordinary water. By the end of the two-month study, the caffeine-drinking mice were performing far better on tests of memory and thinking than mice given water. Their memories were as sharp as those of healthy older mice without dementia.

How to get 500mg caffeine a day?

  • 2 x 250mg caffeine pills
  • 3 x large espresso-based coffees
  • 6 x cans of Red Bull
  • 14 x cans of Coca-Cola
  • 15 x cups of tea
  • 7kg (16 lb) of chocolate

Seems like 14 cans of Coca-Cola a day isn’t so viable. Maybe 2 large espresso and 2kg of chocolate a day is more viable?

Previously, we have introduced Super 3-in-1 Charcoal Roasted Ipoh White Coffee. The same thing is available in canned drink in Singapore! So, it saves you the hassle of making instant coffee as it is a prepackaged can drink.

Like the 3-in-1 coffee, the can version is just as good minus the freshness you get from the instant coffee.

Retailing at SGD $1.25. Super Charcoal Ipoh White Coffee 240ml is available from Jason’s Market Place in Singapore.
