Torani Syrups Giveaway ~ 2 winners!!
Time for another giveaway y'all!! This one is super-fun! Do you love coffee-house drinks, but not the amount of money you have to spend to get them? I know I do - I love Peppermint Mochas and Salted Caramel Hot Chocolates at Starbucks, but my budget does not always allow for such a splurge. Enter Torani Syrups!!
SheSpeaks allowed me to participate in their Torani Authentic Coffeehouse Flavors program, and they sent me two full-size bottles of syrup to sample and experiment with. I was so happy - my box contained Peppermint Syrup and Salted Caramel Syrup! How did I get so lucky? : ) Here's a little information about Torani:
Since 1925, family-owned Torani has been crafting great tasting flavored syrups that coffeehouses use to make their flavored drinks taste so delicious. With over 120 flavors in regular and sugar free varieties, Torani flavored syrups are perfect for flavored lattes, mochas, coffees, cocoas, Italian sodas, teas, lemonades, cocktails and smoothies. Coffeehouse professionals choose Torani flavors because they are expertly crafted and made with the highest quality ingredients, like natural flavors and pure cane sugar. The sugar free flavors have no calories and are sweetened with Splenda. Now, Torani Flavored Syrups are widely available at retail so you can easily create authentic coffeehouse quality drinks at home.
I haven't had much time to experiment with these syrups yet, but here are some things I have tried:
Hot Cocoa with Peppermint syrup is amazing - it's refreshing but not overpowering. I also made my own version of a Peppermint Mocha using coffee, hot cocoa mix and the syrup. YUM! The mint is just right, with a touch of sweetness! I know it will work in frosting and cakes, plus my creme de menth brownie recipe will be getting a Peppermint boost this year!
The Salted Caramel syrup is delicious in hot cocoa, and tastes great in coffee too - just like at Starbucks. And try it in buttercream frosting on top of cupcakes - delicious! I'm also thinking it will taste great in some whipped cream on top of pumpkin pie come Thanksgiving.
That's it so far, but I still have lots of ideas to try out for both of these syrups!
Torani Syrups are available at CostPlus World Market, Walmart, Amazon.com and Torani.com! With over 120 flavors available you are bound to find some you love!
