Caffeinating small kid time
LION Coffee has introduced three new flavored coffees in a series the company is calling "Imagination" — flavors designed to bring back childhood memories and allow you to recapture those good times. Selling for $3.99 to $5.99 in all major retail outlets, the flavors include Island Grogg (rum and coconut — as in Christmas rum ball cookies), Almond Dobash (chocolate and almond — those cakes!) and Toasted Marshmallow Cream (tastes of S'Mores, as from camping days).
