Powdered Flavorings

Hello all. Can anyone recommend a good powdered flavoring that I can use on my flaxmeal cereal. I take my dry mix to work in the morning and use hot water to make it into cereal. I like to put all the dry ingredients in my baggy together so I don't have to add anything else. I would love some dry flavoring powders to put in my mix. Especially maple to enhance the flavor of my cereal.

Any recommendations? Thanks.

The only thing that's dry that I can think of is the flavoring packets (straws) sold to add to water bottles. I think Walmart has an apple/cinnamon, cranberry and several other flavors. They combine flavoring and artificial sweetener. I've never seen a maple one, tho.

You could also probably add just 1/4 tsp of maple extract (or any flavoring extract) to your baggie. That would probably be enough to flavor your cereal without getting all gooey in the bag. If you stir your cereal after adding the water, it should mix in well.

Cinnamon, cocoa powder, pumpkin pie spice, Ginger

Crystal Light type flavorings, kool-aid.

Coffee-mate Powder, Vanilla Caramel flavor, Sugar Free

Could you keep a bottle of Davinci SF syrup at your desk or in your car? It won't freeze.

The coffee mate powder is a chemical cocktail. Try flavored protein powders instead.

You can google "adams powder extract".

they have powdered vanilla, almond, lemon, and others. I would think the vanilla or almond would be yummy.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions; they were very good. I did google "powdered flavorings" and found some by natures flavors. They had a large selection, but they were not cheap. Anyone ever used any of these ?
