  • pinitbutton Wolfgang Puck Iced Coffee

by Sophie Gayot


Among the many things über-chef Wolfgang Puck likes, there is coffee. His passion for the black drink led him to create a line of cold brewed iced coffees in 2009 with pastry chef Sherry Yard and Craig Lieberman, president of Woodway Beverage Partners.


The trio has developed four flavors: Vanilla Fusion, Double Blend Mocha, Crème Caramel and Café au Lait. Made with certified organic ingredients, they are prepared using a cold-brewing process that reduces the tannins and the bitter taste often found in hot-brewed drinks. The results are delicate flavors at only 120 calories for an 8.5-ounce bottle, while other brands are around 250. Watch my exclusive video with Wolfgang Puck talking about the drinks.


Available in 35 states, the prices vary from $1.99 to $2.29 for a single bottle, and $6.49 to $7.99 for a four-pack depending on the outlet. For store locations, please visit http://www.wolfgangpuckicedcoffee.com/. Consumption of iced coffee increased 6% from 2009 to 2010. If you’re one of its many fans, you might as well drink one that tastes good and is made from good ingredients. And, it’s even kosher!
