Iced coffee still the same for Ippy fans

FANS of Ipswich's iconic Jacaranda Iced Coffee need not worry - the famous flavoured milk has not changed recipe and will not be ditched by its makers, Dairy Farmers.

Concerned Ipswich resident “Jacaranda Lover” sent an SMS to The Queensland Times earlier this week, saying how they thought the drink had changed taste in the past two weeks.

The next day three fellow fans replied - all sharing similar tales of a drop off in taste quality in the iced coffee.

But according to National Foods Corporate Affairs general manager Geoff Lynch, there is nothing to worry about, the Jacaranda Iced Coffee they have grown to love has not changed recipes.

“There has been no change to how they make it, no change to the ingredients, packaging or the recipe,” Mr Lynch said.

“I can't explain why someone might have detected a different taste. Jacaranda will continue to be made exactly the same way as always.”

However a comment on the “Jacaranda Iced Coffee addicts” Facebook page, which has more than 200 members, might explain the change in taste.

“Does anyone have a favourite number? I know I'll only ever drink number 2 Jacs!” Mark Brighton wrote.

“On the bottom of the carton there is a number imprinted, one or two - twos are smoother and made here in Ippy, ones are made at Tingalpa but can't buy up there, go figure.”

A rumour on the fan page that Dairy Farmers, which has been owned by National Foods since last year, would ditch Jacaranda from production, were refuted by Mr Lynch. “There are no plans to stop producing Jacaranda at all,” he said.
