Coffee? Not My Favorite. But...Coffee ICE CREAM? Yum.

starbucks-coffeeIt's a funny thing.

I don't like coffee {except when it's super cold outside and other options are not available}.

But I really love coffee ice cream. It's so smooth and creamy and nummy.

I recently had an opportunity to try out Starbucks' new line of ice cream. My review? It's delicious!

There are four flavors: Caramel Macchinto, Mocha Frappuchino, Java Chip Frappuchino, and Coffee - all available in one pint tubs in the freezer aisle at your local grocery store. The tubs retail for $3.99, but you can get a $1.00 off coupon on the Starbucks Ice Cream website.

To celebrate National Ice Cream Month and the launch of their new ice cream line, Starbucks is giving you an opportunity to send a free pint of ice cream to a friend on Facebook. My recent survey showed that 83% of you are on Facebook...and, if you're not, here's a good excuse to join.

Here's the "scoop" on the promotion:

  • Fill out the form here to send a pint to a friend on Facebook.
  • Starbucks will be giving away just over 800 pints per hour, today through 7-19.
  • These pints are going fast (I've tried twice with no luck so far...) so be sure to try at the very beginning of each hour.
  • The promotion will end at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, July 19.
  • People in Colorado, Louisiana, and Tennessee are not eligible.

Not on Facebook? Don't worry. I got ya covered. You can win some ice cream right here.

(But you really should get on Facebook. It's a fun way to keep up with friends and family. At first, I didn't "get" it, but now I like it...)

YOUR TURN: Are you on Facebook? Do you like it? Do you post updates? How often do you check your account?

  7. I am on facebook, but not like my daughter! She lives on it. She absolutely wants to stop at Starbucks every day. It is like she craves it. I like hot coffee, she likes the iced drinks. She is 13! Especially the Green Tea. Thanks for the giveaway!

  8. I am on facebook but am still in the book of not getting these social network sites. I use it mainly for business contacts along with Linkedin. I love Starbucks Icecream, thanks for a great giveaway!

  13. I actually like coffee and I love ice cream, but I've never been to Starbucks. Maybe it's time for something new...

  15. I have a facebook account but I rarely use it, I spend more time on myspace and twitter. This ice cream sounds amazing though and I can't wait to try it.

  16. I tried to send the ice cream to my daughter via facebook but could not. Too bad. She loves Feacebook and Starbucks!

  17. i am on facebook mostly b/c everyone in my generation is obsessed with it i log in to keep in contact with friends and what not.

  18. I have a love/hate relationship with FB. It is quite addictive. Sometimes I am shocked by the personal info. that people leave on there.

  19. I use FB occasionally. I would like the Mocha Frappuchino Ice Cream! Thank you for the Opportunity!

  20. Facebook is cool. However, it isn't on top of the list of my must visit websites. I check it out once in awhile. Thank you.

  21. I am also one who does not like coffee, but loves coffee flavored candies and ice creams. Oh, and the smell of the hot stuff. Mmmmm

  22. I am on Facebook. I usually check in a few times a day. I am addicted to playing Bejeweled Blitz on there. lol

  23. I don't like the social websites, so no facebook for me. I don't drink coffee, but I'm like you: I like the coffee ice cream! And I love the smell of coffee and coffee scented candles, I just don't want to drink the nasty stuff :)

  24. I would love to try this ice cream!!

    I'm on facebook. I usually check it twice a day. I mainly use it to email friends and to post pictures. It's easier than emailing them out to friends/family.

  25. I have a Facebook account but I really don't use it much. I am so busy with my blog that I just have let the Facebook slide. Thanks for the chance to win.

  26. My two necessities in life are coffee and ice cream. I ADORE Starbucks for combining them so brilliantly, lol!

  27. I am not on Facebook because I really don't care for the social sites. I find them kind of annoying.

  28. i am still new to facebook i check it a couple of times a week im planning on sharing some more pictures on there. Me and my hubby both love starbucks ice cream thanks for the chance

  29. Try a brownie topped with Starbuck's ice cream, hot fudge and whipped cream. Top it off with a cherry - a little bit of heaven on earth!

  30. I don't like coffee either but just recently discovered that I love coffee ice cream. It doesn't make much sense to me but it's a fact. Now I crave it. Thanks for the giveaway.

  31. I do facebook my friends do not but my godchildren do and thanks to you I just sent her some free ice cream and she is going scream

  32. Love Starbucks coffee (when I can afford it) and I have tried the Starbucks ice cream products and found them to be very yummy!

  33. I like facebook, im not one these intense people on it but its great for us who have moved away from old friends and family to keep in touch.

  34. I have a Facebook account and starbucks coffee beans in my refrigerator. Would love to try their ice cream

  35. I ate a whole carton of starbucks ice cream years ago (it had yummy chunks of coffee beans/chocolate) and then I wondered why I was up all night

  36. I do have a facebook account. I check it daily. I love being able to quickly get a hold of my friends whom I haven't seen in years.

  37. I have a facebook account but haven't been on it much lately.

    My family loves ice cream-we always willing to try out new flavors:)

  38. I am a big-time Starbucks fan! I'm there at least 3 times a week. I can just imagine how delicious their ice cream is. If it's half as good as their OATMEAL, then it will be a winner in my book.

  39. Facebook and Starbucks Ice Cream - love them both. Just finished up the Mocha and am buying another flavor on my next trip to the store.

  40. I'm crazy about coffee, Starbucks ice cream -- and Facebook! I guess I'm an addict to all three. I leave my Facebook account open all day and check it every hour or two when I'm home. I used a coupon last week and bought myself some Java Chip Starbucks ice cream, yum! I'd forgotten how good it is.

  41. Yes, I'm on Facebook. I didn't get it at first either, but now I check it everyday! I post post updates once in awhile.

  42. I love the Starbucks Java Chip Ice Cream, my only complaint is that is used to come in a much bigger container.

  43. I just started Facebook about a month ago and love it. I don't post updates much but I like to put my photos up and share them with friends and family. Its a lot of fun.

  44. I love Facebook, I am on it everyday. I have reconnected with a few people whom I thought I would never talk with again through Facebook. Also, I have a lot of family that lives far away, it's really a great way to keep up with all the things that my neice and nephews are up to!

  45. i would love to get coffee ice cream. it would be great to serve at my bible study brunch. we have coffee and biscotti now, and i'm sure they would be excited for ice cream.

  46. I'm on FAcebook but I very rarely check it or update it! Still, it's nice to see how long-lost friends are doing sometimes.

  47. hey, if you're up -- i got through on FB for my free ice-cream (3am central), so i guess it's best to do it in the middle of the night?

  48. Oh, how I love coffee ice-cream. It would probably be better for my hips if I didn't win this one.

  49. I am not on Facebook. I love Starbucks and coffee ice cream but no one else in my house does so I dont't buy it.

  50. I have a facebook account but I am not really into it. I don't feel like I have the time to do any updates.

  51. I haven't tried to send a pint yet, but I shall! Meanwhile, I love Starbucks Ice cream, but have only tried it once.

  52. Yes, I'm on Facebook, I check it quite a few times daily. I have moved around quite a bit so its a convenient way for me to keep in touch with everyone - many of my closest friends live overseas so its impossible to use the phone often without outstanding phone bills! I love Facebook - I don't often post that many updates though. I like reading others.

  53. I love Starbucks cold drink, and I definitely love ice cream. Now this is one combination that I have to try out, even without the giveaway!

  54. I am a Starbucks fan so I know I would love their ice cream. I've tried the Facebook coupon a few times and just now finally got through to share a free pint.

  55. Wow, I love ice cream, and I love coffee, so this is the ultimate combination for me! Even if I don't win, I may just have to go out and buy some to give them a try!

  56. I love this ice cream but only purchase it when I have company. If I won this it would be my own personal treat! I love coffee flavored ice cream even though I am more of a tea drinker.

  57. I'm on Facebook but I only use it for keeping up with personal friends. I do post updates a few times a week and like reading what everyone is up to and seeing their pictures.

  58. I'm not a fan of facebook or any social networking sites, just not my thing I guess :) But I'd like to enter here for a chance to win this yummy ice cream!

  59. i am on facebook and i do love it! i don't update that often but I long on everyday to see what my friends are up to and see their pictures as well as send private messages.

  60. Facebook... I don't love it. I'm on it once or twice a week but I won't allow myself to get sucked in because I see how obsessive some people I know have become.

  61. I am on facebook but I check it only about once a week. I don't post anything because my life just isn't that interesting! I did take a funny quiz and learned I would survive a zombie attack - good to know, I guess.

  62. I have a facebook account but rarely check it and have nothing posted- there's just not enough time in the day for everything!

  63. I love icecream that is like my favorite snack but i never tried Starbucks icecream well, it is probably good i would like to try it.

  64. I love coffee and I love coffee ice cream. I've never tried Starbucks ice cream. If its as good as their coffees, it should be fantastic! Thanks.

  65. I have never tried Starbucks ice cream nor coffee ice cream and I would love to try it. I've walked past it in the grocery store, but haven't picked it up yet!

  66. I love coffee but I have never tried coffee ice cream...wonder if you get the caffeine kick that you do from a cup of coffee???

  67. I am on Facebook and I enjoy it for keeping up with friends, but I only check it once a week or so, and I don't post many updates. I just don't have the time.

  68. I got on facebook very reluctantly, but now I love it! It's so much fun to keep up with old friends and see pictures of their families. I check it at least once a day.

  69. I love starbucks coffee AND their ice cream!!

    Who doesn't love ice cream and facebook- ooh and at the same time! :)

  70. Oh, and I wasn't on Facebook until a few months ago, when I got invites from relatives that are way older than me, so I figured I'd give it a go. It's kind of fun. I only update about once a week or less

  71. My hubby bought the Caramel Macchiato flavor recently, and barely shared. The couple of bites I snuck were delicious, though!!

  72. My teenagers are on FB. I may be a little old for it. I do like ice cream but only have it on special occasions.Always liked coffee IC with saltine crackers.

  73. I am not on Facebook and have no interest at all in starting it. My daughter and grandchildren are though, but I don't think they are particularly avid users of it. Like you, I do not like coffee, but since I do like some mocha baked goods, I suspect that the ice cream would be a good treat. I know others in the family would be more than happy to help me eat it!

  74. I buy the Starbucks ice cream at Publix often. My fav is the caramel macchiato ice cream. I am not on Facebook, just haven't had the time yet to join.

  75. I am hooked on Facebook!! I check quite often throughout the day, and play various games on there. I try to limit my time so that I'm not on there constantly!!! It has been great to find old friends and keep up with family this way. Most of my family is on, so it's so neat and easy to keep in touch!!! Thanks for this giveaway!!!

  76. I am on Facebook, but it's just an easy way to keep in touch with friends from high school and college. I never post updates-most of them are usually annoying. I don't usually check facebook unless I get an email message about some sort of update.

  77. I'm on FB... and usually check it daily when I'm not on vacation. I rarely post anything, though I love to read the posts of my friends. Have found some friends from long long ago (but not any from a galaxy far far away!)

  78. I'm on Facebook, but not often enough to try to win something that way. However, I will admit to really liking Starbucks Ice Cream. I bought a small amount of their mocha almond swirl and it was extremely tasty. I have a lot of fond memories of coffee ice cream from growing up so this would be right up my alley.

  79. I am on Facebook and love it - it's the best way to stay in touch with friends and family all over the world!

  80. Hmmmm ... a topical post. I can do that!

    Coffee - I love it all the time, in just about any form - hot, iced, slushed, made into a candy, and of course ice cream! I make it myself at home and work, buy it at the Starbucks down the street or in the one in the supermarket. Can't get enough. :D

    And I am a facebook user as well - I have found that I get tired of a lot of the games and that sort of thing (people "poking" you, etc.) but I love keeping up with old friends and posting photos, etc.

  81. I really want to try this ice cream, but I can't justify buying it. I'm expecting a delivery of 12 containers from Edy's tomorrow for the big neighborhood salute! So . . . I'll have to wait to buy some . . . or else my husband may leave me. :)

  82. I don't have a facebook account and I just don't have time to keep one up. Thank you for the Starbucks Ice Cream giveaway. I would love to try their coffee icecream.

  83. Sorry, I forgot to mention facebook in my last comment. I started on FB a few weeks ago. I check it most days & post or comment each time. It's a great way to keep up with my out of town relatives.

  84. Coffee Ice Cream is my favorite! I make ice cream sandwiches with chocolate fudge cookies filled with coffee ice cream, then rolled in chocolate jimmies. Yummy!

  85. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Coffee Ice Cream! Its my favorite flavor hands down! I would love to try some Starbucks coffee Ice sounds AMAZING!

  86. This would be a real treat for a coffee lover. I would love to try all flavors but one would probably hold me for now. Thanks for the giveaway!

  87. Starbucks rocks. They have the best whipped cream ever. I always get their coffee grapachinbo w/ whipped cream. I'd love some of their ice cream.

  88. THIS looks amazing- i love starbucks fraps sot this would be like a trip to the starbucks for that

  89. I honestly like twitter better. I am on facebook, but check it about twice a week. My husband's favorite flavor of ice cream is coffee, so I'm sure he would LOVE this, thanks!

  90. Please delete comment 33 - it was not meant for your site.
    fyi, I went to the site at the stroke of 5pm ET, and my sister is getting a pint :-)
    Thank you so much for posting that URL.

    You can delete this comment too - I wasn't trying to get an extra entry!

  91. We wipe down surfaces like phone, keyboard, light switches, door knobs with disinfectant wipes.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  92. Bummer, they were out of coupons for this hour:-(
    I'll have to try again.

    I love ice cream; I'd certainly be interested in trying Starbucks ice cream!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  93. I've been on FB for only a few months, maybe 6 or so. I avoided it as much as I could, but I ended up being reeled in by friends. I do like it better than MySpace, and my friends list is mostly made up of people I *actually* know (save for one), unlike my MySpace. :P
    I go on everyday to play a couple of games and check up on my friends' updates. I am a FB fan of Starbucks, but I haven't done the coupon sharing thing since my sister and I already have a carton in our freezer.

  94. I've just recently joined Facebook and an very surprised at how much I enjoy it. Starbucks is one of my favorite places and I would love to try their ice cream.

  95. Starbucks has me in a whirl, the mocha latte makes me quiver, now they have Icecream, there goes my diet!
    Makes me shake, makes me shiver.

  96. I have Facebook, but I'm still not sure I'm using it right. I'm a low tech girl, but my husband is trying to fillme in. Thanks for the giveaway. I love Starbucks and would love to try their ice cream.

  97. I would love to try the Carmel Macchiatio ice cream! I bet it is delicious! I can picture it now with a warm brownie!

  98. I am on Facebook and I love it!! I check my account a couple times each day -- more often if I have a Scrabble game going with someone. Because of FB I found one of my dearest friends from high school and we now talk on a regular basis again. I'm able to keep up with my cousins' lives and see pictures of their kids that I wouldn't otherwise see. It's great!

    As a teacher, I had to decide on lots of boundaries for FB 'friending'. I only friend students once they graduate, and I created a special group within FB that prohibits them from seeing anything posted by my other friends. I have several parents of students who have sent friend requests and I decided to only friend them once their child has graduated. I'm not friended with any administrators because I want to have the freedom to vent a little about work now and then (and I want my teacher friends to have the same freedom). Turning down friend requests can be uncomfortable, but I always send a note explaining why. So far it has gone very well!

  99. I am addicted to Starbucks' caramel macchiatos. I received a dollar off coupon for some of their ice cream and just bought the caramel macchiato flavor. YUMMY! I would love to get some more.

  100. I have a whole house of ice cream lovers, but I save the "special" ice creams for myself because the others wouldn't appreciate it. I have a facebook account but don't have a clue what to do with it. MY SIL has one so she could keep in touch with all of her friends (they moved to Florida from New England) and family back here. I occasionally look at her entries but that's about it!

  101. Thanks for the app! Will try to win some free ice cream here and on facebook. :)

    I myself don't really care for coffee flavored anything.. but my boyfriend adores coffee of all kinds.. so I'd definitely give the coupons to him. Or, better yet, I'll buy the ice cream myself and serve it as a special dessert. The fact that it was free can be our little secret

  102. YUMMY!

    Are you on Facebook? yes
    Do you like it? yes
    Do you post updates? not really

    How often do you check your account? Once a day

    My older kids are constantly on their accounts.

  103. I am such a huge fan of Starbucks coffee and ice-cream. this combination is gr8. i would love to get the coupons. we have a big joint family of 2 brothers, spouses and a kid..we could really use the coupons! :)

  104. I am on FB and I get email alerts on my iphone when I get messages and comments. I also post pictures of what my kids and I are up to on there with pictures taken from my phone. It is so quick and easy to do. I love that I can share a picture once by posting it on FB and a ton of my family can all see it. We don't live close to any family, so this is a great way to keep in touch.

  105. you said my two favorite words: ice cream. ice cream + starbucks coffee flavors = heavenly summer bliss.

    i'm all over Facebook. Most of my cousins that I would love to catch up with regularly are surprisingly NOT on Facebook. However, a myriad of friends from childhood, college, the military, and new friends are on there. So, it's GREAT!

    I don't actually use it for business, purposefully. However, I've gained a new patient and several valuable networking contacts through Facebook.

  106. I just tried sending someone some ice cream, but it wasn't available at this time! I do have a Facebook
    account and make a few post on it every week. Mostly, I get posts from friends that I enjoy reading! Please enter me in your Starbucks Ice Cream Drawing! My son goes to college in another state and I would love to treat him with these.
    Many thanks, Cindi

  107. Yummy! I have heard only rave reviews about this ice cream, so I can't wait to try it. My hubby would love it, too, as he loves iced coffee way more than I do...I prefer mine hot. But these flavors sound so delicious!

  108. I have facebook & check it at least once day -- ps..I have had this starbucks icecream and it is AMAZING! There is a hot chocolate one that is divine...I'm gonna cross my fingers =)

    autumn398 @

  109. I go through facebook phases - sometimes I'm way too into it, and check it several times a day, sometimes I let it go for awhile. I don't post updates myself very often, but love seeing what everyone else is up to. (and this icecream looks deLICIOUS!)

  110. I am on FB! I check it several times a day from my iphone but only post about once a week or so. For me it has been a great way to reconnect with old friends!

  111. I am a facebook addict. I admit it. I love posting pictures and updates, checking other people's updates and pages, and generally just roaming around on the site. Terrible, I know. And you're right. I tried sending the ice cream to someone on Facebook at 3:05, and it was too late. Goodness gracious!

  112. At my home my hubby and my grandma are the ones with a total sweet tooth ~ plus they are both coffee lovers ~ this would be so perfect for them! And I have to admit, I like ice cream too. Thanks for sharing about this new one.
