It comes in two flavors, caramel macchiato, and mocha latte. One has crunchy cereal pieces and caramel-swirled marshmallows, the other has hints of chocolate and latte-swirled marshmallows.

5. A New Jersey woman found herself down a couple of slices of pizza after a squirrel decided to help himself.

Sarah Malcom says she ordered pizza from GrubHub for contact-less delivery.

The delivery person made the drop at her Montclair home, but a hungry squirrel moved in and helped himself before she could get there.

A security camera on her porch caught the furry thief in action.
