Tim Hortons offers a drink called an iced capp1 that behaves in a most infuriating way. No doubt similar concoctions are available to those who live outside the true north strong and free.
The iced capp is partly in liquid and partly in solid state. It is drunk through a straw.2 By the time one gets to the bottom, at a normal rate of drinking, even on a hot day, one has extracted the liquid and encounters an undrinkably solid remnant that, moreover, leads to more and more "slurping" noise as you near the end of the drink.
Presumably one could wait an hour or however long it takes for it to melt. But this is not ideal. One solution is to constantly stir as you drink.3 However, even frantically stirring between sips doesn't entirely remove the blockage, and it requires two hands, which is often impractical. I also just tried stirring in some milk after I got home in an attempt to melt or dissolve the dregs, with no luck.
Is there any better solution?
1 The temptation to write "ice cap", in line with pronunciation, is almost insurmountable even though I know it's wrong.
2 Mea culpa.
3 This requires removing the lid with its narrow aperture, for some reason not pictured on the Tims product page.
