something I forget, and then remember from time to time  
Blended coffee drinks are a big rip-off!

Same size cup + Less drink + Ice + a few seconds action in the blender = pay more $$$!

I believe the heat and the coffee industry advertising conspire to make me forget.

Though I will say that the Peet's blended Chai drink is marvelous.

This was your afternoon insight. Back to work!

The key seems to be the "emulsifier", which tends to be some sort of powder that they mix into the drink to give it body. Maybe the extra cost is the emulsifier. And the ice.

Still, it seems I'm paying a lot for not a lot. Coffee drinks are like that, but blended drinks seem even worse.
