DaVinci Gourmet Flavored Syrups Review and Giveaway!!



Hey everyone, you know I like coffee, and my absolute favorite is vanilla iced coffee. I sometimes just add vanilla creamer to my coffee, but it doesn't give the full, rich flavor the way adding a flavored syrup does. So I was excited when DaVinci Gourmet Syrups offered to send me 4 small bottles of their syrup for review! 

Of course, the first one I tried was the Vanilla. Without sounding dramatic, may I say that I LOVE this syrup! 1 tablespoon in my coffee adds so much flavor! I have started making an iced coffee every morning, and several times a week in the evening! I thought the bottle of syrup would go fast, but to my surprise, after making a good-size cup (probably 14-16 oz) for the past 2 weeks, I still have half a bottle left! The syrup is very concentrated, so it only takes a little bit to get an awesome-tasting vanilla coffee. 
Next I tried the Hazelnut; I'm not a huge fan of nutty flavored coffees, but to my surprise I actually liked this one. Maybe I've just had the misfortune of only tasting cheap imitations before :) My sister, who loves hazelnut, also really liked this.
The Sugar-Free Raspberry Syrup is good in coffee, but my favorite drink with this is a recipe I found on the DaVinci website. Add 1-2 oz of Raspberry Syrup to 1 cup of lemonade, and you have a raspberry lemonade! This is my favorite drink at Cracker Barrel, so I was thrilled to be able to make it at home! It is the perfect drink for hot summer afternoons.
