Flax Z Snax Hot Cereal

I filled my tumbler with free Barnie’s coffee from my gym. I am obsessed with the seasonal flavor Santa’s White Christmas.

According to Barnie’s:

“Our #1 seller combines Barnie’sĀ® Blend coffee with the flavors of coconut, nuts, sweet caramel and vanilla.”

Coconut, vanilla, nuts and caramel? No wonder I like it so much!
