When I first started eating Low Carb, I picked up some Torani Sugar Free Syrup at my local grocery store to use in my coffee. Being a coffee lover, I tried several combinations of products trying to get it just right. Prior to going Low Carb I used 2% milk and white sugar in my coffee. So step one that first week was finding a sweetener and a carb free coffee creamer (I now use Heavy Whipping Cream).
I chose Torani Sugar Free Syrup because that’s all my store carried in flavored syrups, and they only carried small bottles (around 16oz I believe). They were often out too, so I would buy several bottles at a time when they did have them in stock.
The bottles at Netrition are MUCH larger than I buy locally: 25.4 oz. And at the same price I paid for the small bottle, even! They also offer tons more flavors, and they carry the Syrup Pump for only $1.99 (makes for less messy use of the syrups).
As you can see in the picture, I like the Sugar Free French Vanilla. And after testing them both, I definitely like the Torani brand better. Not that the DaVinci syrup is bad, it’s just different – and I prefer the Torani in my coffee. I still have a third to a half bottle of the Davinci syrup left, which I’ll probably use up in recipes instead of in my coffee.
Both brands comes in all kinds of fun sugar-free flavors like Pumpkin, Peppermint, Chocolate, Hazelnut and tons more. They work great in dessert recipes, as well as flavored drinks.
I would love to hear which brand is YOUR favorite, and the creative ways you use these sugar free syrups. Feel free to share links to your favorite recipes that use DaVinci or Torani Sugar Free Syrup too! 😀
You can get the Torani Sugar Free Syrup and the DaVinci Syrup in a variety of flavors at Netrition. It’s much cheaper than buying it locally, and they have more flavors! You can also order as many bottles as you like for only one $4.95 shipping fee. 😉
