  1. “Accidental sweetening” as in you didn’t want yours sweetened at all, and told them so?
    Force of habit, most likely. Every iced coffee, you put in so many shots of cream and so many shots of whichever syrup; plain syrup, if no other flavor is given such as vanilla or hazelnut. And so it would be really, really easy to do that even if, this time, they’ve specified that they don’t want that. Just as it’s really, really easy to put cheese on a Quarter Pounder even if they asked it to be left off, because you just make so many of them with.
    If you meant something different, I apologize. If this describes what you meant, but instead of saying you wanted it unsweetened you were assuming it would be left out if you just didn’t mention it, well, that’s on you.

  2. In our McDonald’s, the iced coffee is brewed in the same machine as the iced tea. We use a different basket coffee grounds basket, which has a special part that blocks the liquid sugar from being added (liquid sugar is used to make the sweet tea). Sometimes the coffee basket is missing that special part and the liquid sugar is accidentally added. Or crew might use the tea basket by mistake.
    Another reason is when people order a “plain” iced coffee, the order taker doesn’t confirm whether the customer wants a black iced coffee or an iced coffee made with “plain” liquid sugar.

  3. Sometimes extra syrup comes out when we pump it, or we just don’t accurately count how many pumps we have done because we’re in a rush

  4. I wasn’t trained to put liquid sugar in iced coffee. Not every coffee drinker even LIKES sugar in their coffee, so I never add it unless they request it. If the person making the coffee just guesses at the amount of liquid sugar, that’s one way it could be too sweet. The flavors are syrup, so if the person making the iced coffee uses flavored syrup AND adds liquid sugar, it’s guaranteed to be VERY sweet; likely sugar overboard.

  5. People don’t put the same shots of sweetner in their iced coffees. For example, I will make your iced vanilla coffee with 8 creamers and 7 shots of vanilla because I believe it tastes better that way. Its supposed to be 6 shots of each. People nust make it different. Some people even add liquid sugar despite it already being sweet
