DaVinci Gourmet Syrups

I am a huge coffee lover, but I always have to have a little added flavor to my coffee, so I was very eager to review DaVinci Gourmet Syrups in four palette satisfying flavors. DaVinci Gourmet offers flavored syrups, and gourmet sauces in a wide assortment of delicious flavors. They excel in the quality of their products by bringing you the freshest, most superior tasting syrups and sauces available. For more than an entire decade they have been providing coffee with added flavor to make the most out of your coffee.

Don't get me wrong, I love purchasing coffee from my local Rio Java and Starbucks, but I just don't always have the money to purchase them frequently. For those times in between(which is a lot), I like to make my own coffee at home, and then add my own flavorings. It's also much more convenient to make in my own house because I can just wake up in the morning and brew me a nice cup of coffee, without having to haul the kids with me to the local coffee shop. I had to give up my Starbucks, but I don't have to give up my coffee, and I don't have to give up my Delicious flavorings, all because of DaVinci Gourmet. They bring the Barista straight to your kitchen.

DaVinci Gourmet sent me two of their Classic syrups and two of their Sugar Free syrups to try out. I was giddy about reviewing the classic syrups, but somewhat hesitant to review the sugar free syrups, as I have never really tried sugar free before. I thought it may not be sweet enough, but to my amazement it was actually sweeter than the classic syrups. The syrups are all packaged with an easily recognizable DaVinci Gourmet logo on each 750 ml bottle. I lined the bottles up and then began thinking of what I could use them in. After thinking for a while I came up with coffee(of course), desserts, whip cream, hot chocolate, desserts, and recipes. It was fun coming up with fun and creative creations that I could make at home.

Be sure to check out their flavors because they are more than likely to carry your favorite flavor. My all time favorite flavor is Irish Cream and of course they had it! The only flavor that I was not able to find is Toffee Nut, but you never know... they may come out with it in the future. I also came across some very unusual flavors such as cookie dough and German chocolate cake, which is just up my alley! Below you will find my opinions of all four of the flavors that they sent me to review.

DaVinci Gourmet Vanilla Classic Syrup - Before I opened the bottle I knew I was going to like it. You see vanilla is one of my favorite flavors, as it can be used so many different ways! I chose to add some to my french toast along with some cinnamon. I only used a tad bit but the vanilla syrup gave it a much need pick me up as it danced across my palette. You can even add a tad bit to your whip cream and whip it together to make fluffy tasty whip cream that you could only dream of , well that was until now!

DaVinci Gourmet Hazelnut (Original) Classic Syrup (Untoasted) - I love nutty flavors, so I figured I would also enjoy the hazelnut flavored syrup, and I sure did! The hazelnut tasted great in my hot chocolate, as well as in my coffee. What better way to infuse a nutty flavor into your coffee than by adding a little bit of DaVinci Gourmet Hazelnut classic syrup! It has a very distinct nutty flavor to it, and that is what I like best about it.

DaVinci Gourmet KAHLUA Flavored Sugar Free Syrup - I am a big fan of KAHLUA so once again I had a feeling I was going to like this one as well and turns out my feeling couldn't have been more right! I got creative with this one and decided to add some to my chocolate cake mix! The cake turned out so good, that I will certainly be making it again soon.

DaVinci Gourmet Raspberry Sugar Free Syrup - I have never tried Raspberry syrup before so I was enthused about trying this flavor. I decided to use a little of it in my vanilla shake and it really enhanced the flavor and livened up the plain shake. The flavor of the raspberry really bursted through the vanilla and stood out. I never knew how much I actually liked raspberry flavoring until now.

BUY IT: You can purchase a 750 ml bottle of flavoring for anywhere from $7.49 to $7.99 at DaVinci Gourmet .

Be sure to check out their other flavorings including all natural flavored syrups, fruit innovations syrups, gourmet sauces, and tea concentrates. I am sure you will find atleast one flavor you will fall in love with !

With so many yummy flavors to choose from, it's hard to pick just one! I guess this chocoholic would have to go with "German Chocolate Cake Classic Syrup". Thanks.
