Torani Flavored Syrup Review and Twitter #HolidayFlavors Party

How about shakin' up your mornings, or anytime of the day with a little  Torani Flavored Syrups.  I have never heard of these until being a part of, and having the opportunity to sample 2 of their over 100 different flavors. I'm not a coffee drinker, nor do I care for espressos, or lattes, but these Torani flavors go well beyond the regular coffee cup.

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.

Torani is the #1 brand of flavored syrups in America made with pure cane sugar and natural flavors.  With so many flavors, it makes it simple to create fantastic drinks anytime. 

The flavors I had the pleasure of receiving were Hazelnut, and Gingerbread.  After opening up the box and checking them out, it was now time to get creative.   I thought about adding Gingerbread to cookie dough batter or adding Hazelnut to my smoothie.  The possibilities are endless.  Last night I made a cup of green tea for my son and we added about a tablespoon, maybe a tad bit more to the tea and he loved it.  I sampled a taste of it, and it gave it just the right spice to make the tea unique.  It wasn't an overpowering taste either it was just a hint of spice like you were eating the cookie along side your tea.

This morning I decided to taste the Hazelnut, I really wasn't too sure about this because when I opened the bottle it really does have a powering smell.  But I decided anyway to give it a try and make a breakfast drink.

1 Carnation Vanilla Instant Breakfast (powder)

1 banana

Approximately 1 cup milk (I eyeballed it)

1 Tbsp of Torani Hazelnut (or more)

Mix in blender and enjoy!!

Again, I wasn't too sure because of the Hazelnut scent but I'm glad I did.  The taste wasn't  overwhelming, and just had that "dash" it needed to flavor it up to make it different. Now tonight, I might add some to my hot chocolate, it's a perfect chilly night to enjoy a special treat!

TONIGHT at 9pm (EST) is the SheSpeaks #HolidayFlavors Twitter Party, come join in the fun!!!
