Pictured above are the 2 bottles of Torani Gourmet Syrups that I was sent to try and review as part of the shespeaks website. I'm not a coffee drinker myself, but my daughter is. I knew she would delve into the flavors right away.
She loved the Salted Caramel flavor straight from the bottle. Gingerbread from the bottle, no LOL It had too strong of a flavor. She used the Salted Caramel in iced coffee.
My daughters boyfriend also tried the Salted Caramel in his hot coffee. He enjoyed it at first but then said the salt flavor took over.
Along with the 2 bottles of Torani Gourmet Syrups came a recipe booklet. Since I am not a coffee drinker and know nothing about flavored coffee drinks, I was glad to see recipes for other drinks as well. Two that I really want to try are: Torani Cherry Lime Soda and Electric Blue Lemonade.
I did a search of my zip code to see where in my area I can buy the Torani Gourmet Syrups. I found the only place in my area is a bulk foods store in the Amish/Mennonite community. I do look forward to a trip to the store to try some other flavors.
