Default Iced Lattes

I was thinking about heading to Sheetz this afternoon for a non-fat iced latte. I've never had one before and I was wondering if they were any good? How do they compare to Starbucks?

Oh and does anyone have a recipe for making iced lattes at home? Mine NEVER seem to taste right...

I'm no coffee expert, but lattes are made with espresso shots, and I'd bet you're using coffee at home, not espresso.

You would be right, I'm using coffee. I try to make it strong. Maybe I need to get some espresso at the store. Is there such a thing as instant espresso?
