I LOVE my new Mr Coffee Frappe maker

So I admit, I'm a coffee addict. Even almost 33 weeks pregnant, I still need my coffee. A few weeks before Christmas, I saw an ad for the Mr Coffee Frappe and thought it would be a cool kitchen toy to have, but sorta pricey. I mentioned this to my Mom and for one of our Christmas presents she sent us a giftcard to purchase one. Yesterday afternoon I headed over to bed, bath and Beyond with my giftcard and a 20% off coupon (saved $16!) to buy my new toy. I get home and make 1 Mocha frappe and it was okay. I figured that this would happen based on reviews I had read of the machine and just knowing that when you get a new appliance, you have to get used to it. Roll forward to today. I skipped my morning coffee and had juice instead. My husband gets up and starts asking about making Frapps. Here is everything we made today (the coffee didn't change b/c we were trying to determine how many times we could use the same coffee grounds and the frappe still taste okay): Hazel Nut cream Frapp using Half & Half Hazel Nut Cream Frapp using Soymilk Hazel Nut Cream Frapp using Soymilk and instead of using 2 cups or regular ice cubes, we used 1/2 coffee ice cubes, 1/2 regular ice cubes So far this has bun a fun toy to play with. I can easily see it getting used daily, probably instead of brewing coffee everyday. Did anyone else ask for or get this for Christmas? If so, what do you think?

I usually just get candy! Candy is my favorite. I don't usually drink coffee, mainly sodas. I work four hours a day and thats all they have over there for me to drink is those fountain drinks. They are starting to get old! I want like powereade or gatorade in there now!
