I like to have my ice crushed, but most of the coffee shops give it to you in cubes. Its not that I do not like cubed ice but I always prefer crushed.

Don't you ever find that crushed ice melts too quickly, diluting your drink and making it not as nice anymore? That's why I think they give it to you in cubes in coffee shops - so that it cools your drink, but doesn't dilute it as much? Perhaps there's a professional barista out there who could enlighten us?

I like mine crushed, I like to munch it when the drink is empty. It has become a habit ages ago especially on hot summers.

I like mine crushed. I love it. So many places don't have it though. I am glad that I do at home.

Hi asian, I prefer ice cubes all the time. I like having some cubes to make my fruit juice iced cold. It's so delicious and just nice for me to quench the thirst after sweating a lot after having jogging or outdoor activities It's so comfortable to shake the glass with ice cubes after having a few sips. I like the ringing sound made by the cubes rocking on the glass. I could remove some of the cubes as well if I find the juice is rather dilute after the melting of the cubes. I would then like to remove a few of them so the remain won't become thin and tasteless Have a nice day

Definitely crushed. I like the feeling of it when I finish my drink and get to munch on it. Thats probably why I love snow cones so much. lol

I prefer cubed ice. I find that it's easier to drink something with cubed ice. If the ice is crushed then you risk swallowing it when you take a drink, where with cubes you're less likely to have that happen! I also think it melts a lot slower than the crushed.

Crushed. I love my ice crushed. Sonic has the best. I actually craved crushed ice when I was pregnant with my son!!!

Definately cubes. This is because of how fast soda defizzes for me when I use cubes. The biggest difference though and probably the thing I don't like about cubes ice is how long it takes for it to come out of the dispenser.

Cubed. So when I'm finished my drink I can crunch on them. xD I remember when I had braces and the orthodontist told me not to crunch on ice because it was bad for my braces...I totally ignored him and did it anyway. But I totally regretted it when it broke off one of the brackets on my teeth one day. Had to get glued on again, and anyone who has tasted that glue that they use...it's DISGUSTING!
