Torani Flavored Syrup {Review & Giveaway}


Sometimes I like to think of myself as a coffee connoisseur. I love everything about coffee, especially when it's made at a coffeehouse! The smell, the taste and flavors are always so amazing. What I don't like about coffeehouse coffee is the high cost of a daily beverage. Recently, I was introduced to Torani, a company that has some delicious flavored syrups that helps you whip up delightful coffee creations from the comfort of your home. Ummm, hello... brew me up!

About Torani

In 1925, Rinaldo and Ezilda Torre, with handwritten recipes from their hometown of Lucca, Italy, introduced Torani syrups to the North Beach neighborhood of San Francisco. Mixing their syrup recipes with sparkling water, the Torres introduced the classic Italian soda to local cafes, and soon began mixing, blending and selling Torani Syrups from their Italian wholesale grocery.

Fast forward to today, and the Torani family legacy continues. They produce an extensive portfolio of flavorful products, and continue to innovate for success. The popularity of specialty beverages and the support of caf├ęs, restaurants and retailers have helped grow their brand for the last 80 years. Flavor seekers around the globe enjoy Torani in their favorite beverages everyday. And Torani continues to stay on the creative edge with new product lines and ideas.

I was thrilled to have an opportunity to taste test Torani's Peppermint and Sugar-Free Brown Sugar Cinnamon flavored syrups. Both flavors were intriguing, but admittedly I was a bit leary about the Sugar-Free Brown Sugar Cinnamon for two reasons {1} wasn't sure the flavor combination and {2} would the flavor taste funny because it was 'sugar-free'. In lieu of trying that, I opted to try the Peppermint flavored syrup first. You can't go wrong with a Peppermint Latte, right? Well, RIGHT, of course! 

Creating this coffee masterpiece was quite simple. I went directly to Torani's website and searched their recipe collection. Immediately I found several different beverages I could make using Peppermint Syrup. Once I selected the Peppermint Latte recipe, the website displayed the ingredients and instructions. A few minutes later I was enjoying a warm, delightful and festive coffee beverage. Perfect for the season.

Because I love coffee so much, I was now desperate to try the Sugar-Free Brown Sugar Cinnamon. Doubts and concerns be gone... onward to my next recipe search. I opted to just add the syrup directly to a black cup of coffee. To my surprise, it was extremely flavorful and delicious. No funny taste. Hurray... and this syrup has ZERO calories. Um, bonus!

So, if you are looking for a way to jazz up your morning java, make sure to get yourself some Torani... they offer so many flavors... I'm quite certain you will find one you will LOVE! Now, I'm off... to whip up another tasty cup o' joe!
