Torani Syrups Review

The following review is a sponsored post. The products were provided by Torani through a SheSpeaks program. My opinions are my own and extremely honest.

I am a coffee drinker so when I found out that Torani was offering two full sized products for review, I bit and was thrilled when I received SUGAR FREE Salted Caramel and (regular) Gingerbread. They also came with a guide book complete with recipes. I was surprised as I flipped through the book because many of the recipes were for non-coffee beverages. I had no idea that Torani could be used in that way.


Naturally, the first way that I used my Torani was in a cup of folgers classic roast coffee. I used a splash of Gingerbread, a bit of non-dairy milk, and a spoonful of sugar. On other days I tried the same recipe with a splash each of Salted Caramel and Gingerbread and also with my eggnog creamer instead of milk. 

Outside of coffee I also used the Salted Caramel in my green smoothie. It made may apple smoothie into a caramel apple smoothie! 
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 1 Cup Kale Greens
  • 1 Cup Oats
  • 1 Banana
  • 2 Apples
  • 2 Splashes of Salted Caramel syrup
    • Makes 2 16oz servings
I also used the salted caramel to combat some of the nutty flavor in my dandelion root tea. This tea is good for you but sometimes I don't always like the nutty flavor. The caramel complimented the batch I made well.

The Bottom Line

While I had a blast with the Salted Caramel. I did not love the Gingerbread. I thought that it was going to be the commercial gingerbread flavor but it is more of the spices used in gingerbread. This syrup would be better for someone who bakes because I can see it adding flavor to cookies and cakes. Salted Caramel was sweetened with Splenda and zero calories which went well in my smoothies because I do not sweeten them. I encourage you all the find the syrup that best compliments what you intend to use the syrup for. 

 $ 7.95 <--way less than I thought a bottle of this size would cost!
