I was super excited when I was picked to be part of the Holiday Cheers Program through Shespeaks.com. I was sent two full-size bottles of Torani Flavored Syrups in Sugar free Salted Carmel and Gingerbread to review.
Salted Carmel hot chocolate is one of my favorite hot drinks so I used the Salted Carmel in my hot chocolate and wow was it good! I loved it! With the Torani syrups I'm able to have some of my favorite gourmet coffee/hot chocolate drinks that I would normally have to go to the coffee shop to get in the comfort of my own kitchen! I also made a Gingerbread Latte by making my coffee super strong and then adding the Gingerbread syrup with hot milk. The whipped cream on top made both of the drinks I made really creamy, and yummy!
I'm so impressed at all the fabulous flavored syrups Torani offers! I always thought of the Torani syrups as being just for coffee drinks but the flavors they offer give you so many options. They have many fruit flavors which are perfect to make an Italian soda with, which my daughter loves. You can find an entire list of regular and sugar free Torani syrup flavors at www.torani.com/#/products. While you're there take a peek at the recipe section for many more great recipe ideas to use with all their delicious flavored syrups.
You can find Torani flavored syrups at most retail stores such as Wal-Mart, ect., and major grocery stores. You can also find it at Amazon.com. For the best selection of flavors I would suggest visiting their site at Torani.com.
