I have to admit that I haven't had jello shots in ages. So these little caffeine shots were a nice welcome to the mix. They're sweet, strong, and warming. ALSO, they're in these adorable little mugs. loveeee. The only thing that could make these better is a dark chocolate covered coffee bean to top off the shots. If only I had one.. oh wait, I did!
