Torani Flavored Syrups + GIVEAWAY



I received these the other day to try out. What are they? Thanks for asking! They are Torani flavored syrups to put in your coffee that are supposed to liven it up.

I don't drink coffee, but I decided to give the peppermint flavor a shot. I love the smell of coffee, but it's always tasted pretty bland to me and I don't like adding any milk or sugar to things just to get them to taste better. Tea, on the other hand, makes me get out of bed every morning. I drink it plain and absolutely love it.

Anyways, the box that these came in also came with a recipe book for things you could make with the different flavors of syrup from Torani.

I immediately went to the "Cocktails" tab and started looking through the recipes for alcoholic drinks. Dealing with customers every day has turned me into quite the alcohol connoisseur. They have a recipe called a Peanut Brittle Caramella that looks good but I didn't get that flavor of syrup in the package so I couldn't make it. Not until I buy the right syrup for it. Hmm...clever marketing tactic, Torani.

So I decided to get a cup of coffee at the store and throw a splash of the Peppermint flavor into it. Imagine my surprise when regular customers stood there and watched me do this and all because they had never seen me drink a cup of coffee before. I make it known that I am an avid tea drinker. And yes, when I admit that I'm a tea drinker, I get a lot of teabagging jokes thrown my way.

I'm not going to bore you with exact descriptions of how my taste buds bursted at the seams while reacting to coffee + peppermint flavored syrup, but I am going to say that it was actually quite good. I could taste the peppermint flavor and it made the coffee taste sweet.

I have discovered since that these flavored syrups can go in just about any drink. One that I will try next is called a Candy Cane Steamer.

But here's the good part! I've been given some coupons for FREE bottles of this stuff! And not the small, dinky bottles, either. These coupons are good for the BIG ones! This is good stuff here people!

To enter, just leave a comment below letting me know if you've ever tried this stuff before.

Two lucky winners will each get a coupon good for a FREE bottle of Torani syrup. Yes, just a coupon. You didn't think I'd send you a bottle in the mail, did you? With the outrageous shipping prices going on these days??

This giveaway ends on November 21, 2011 and the two random winners will be announced on November 22, 2011.

  2. I love the Hazlenut flavor!

    The vanilla is surprisingly good in tea, as well. :-)

  3. I'm not a coffee person... I can never get it to taste the way I wish it would. My BF on the other hand... ugh he drinks a whole pot before I even wake up in the morning! He's always begging me to become a coffee person like him =0P

  4. I LOVE these syrups. My favorite is to make Italian sodas with them- just some club soda and syrup to taste- you can also add some creme or half and half for an extra delicious treat. My favorite is the blood orange (w/o dairy) and vanilla (w/ dairy).

  5. I have tried Torani's white chocolate syrup. I'm sure the other flavors are good too, but I haven't tried them yet. The white chocolate is very hard to find around these parts.

  14. I love Torani syrups! I'm allergic to corn syrup, so I love that they use real sugar.

    I'm both a coffee and tea drinker. Usually I like a cup of coffee in the morning, but then I drink tea throughout the day. These syrups are great in iced tea in the summer for when you want your tea sweet but don't want the grainy sugar that never seems to dissolve.

  19. I tried one of these years ago but can't remember the flavor. They're kind of expensive and I never bought another bottle - but they are definitely good!

  21. I've never tried it, but I'm not much of a coffee fan either... now cocktails are a different story! I wonder how it would taste in hot chocolate...

  22. This is new to me, I've never tried any other syrups in my coffee except Eggo's syrup, when I'm low on creamer. So many flavors to choose from though.
