the madness of king mouse

Tastemaker platinum badge
created by: Christa Y
The Mouse King represents the face of evil in The Nutcracker, to the point of his often being pictured with several heads -- albeit not on this label, of course, for the sake of slightly more amusing/appetizing imagery!

As such, this inspirationally tyrannical holiday blend tussles together the Christmas flavors of gingerbread, hazelnut, and vanilla.
