Do you expect me to talk?

No, Mr. Bond, I expect to drink you.

Yes, even here on vacation in Kauai, I keep my eyes open for good stuff. Loyal Cruft readers know me penchant for Asian iced coffee.

We found this can of Mr. Bond iced coffee, from the Taiwanese company Want Want, at the local Foodland in Kapaa.

I drank it last night while I prepared the charcoal for the barbeque. The flavor wasn't bad, not too sweet. You could taste the coffee, but it was a bit watery. Not as creamy as some of the Boss coffees I've had in the past. Overall, a typical Asian iced coffee, nothing special but the cool name.

Ahhh, are you drinking coffee?
Maybe you can pick up some Black Black gum over there too.

b. Black Black gum is the best.

You have discovered my favorite secret! The taste is definitely much better than Starbucks coffees.

Alright, so maybe you didn't like Mr. Bond (I agree that it's a tad watery-tasting), but you DID find some good stuff nonetheless: Kapaa itself! I always think people sell it short; but to my mind, it's one of the best bargains on Kauai, particularly hotel-wise. I like the Pono Kai overlooking Sleeping Giant; but for a splurge, I enjoy the Outrigger. I blow the rent when I stay there but it's still cheaper than similar resorts elsewhere on the island.
