Torani Holiday Cheers Program!

Before I met NJhusband I was strictly a black coffee kind of girl. No flavor, no milk, no sugar. NJhusband ONLY drank flavored coffee. We only have one coffeepot so we needed to broker a compromise.

Enter Torani syrups! Whenever NJhusband and I would go to our local coffee place, I would see the line of Torani bottles on the shelf and become envious at the endless flavor choices. He always stuck with his tried and true caramel, but curiosity got the best of me and I started asking them to add a pump of this or that to my black coffee. Oh how I didn't know what I was missing all these years!

As part of their Holiday Cheers Program, Toranai sent me two flavors to try out, the Gingerbread and the sugar free Salted Caramel. First up was the Gingerbread. Oh the heavenly smell when you twist open the cap! I may keep this one just to smell! I like more traditional flavors in my coffee, so it wasn't a hit for me there, but I used it to flavor some whipped cream I made to go on my homemade gingerbread and it was DIVINE. If you bake sugar cookies for the holidays, add this to your frosting! Amazeballs!

Next up, the sugar free Salted Caramel syrup. I recently had tried to sneak a store-brand sugar free caramel syrup into NJhusband's coffee and he immediately commented that it had an unpleasant after-taste. He was hesitant about trying another sugar-free syrup, but a little arm twisting and he gave in. I put the sugar free Salted Caramel syrup in his coffee this morning and he LOVED it. He actually thought I was lying about it being sugar free. He couldn't even tell! I have been using it in my coffee all week and can definitely say that this WILL be a new staple in the NJhousehold!

  1. You must be psychic because I was just eyeballing these syrups in the store the other day! I, too, like black coffee but I love flavoring it and I always wondered how worth it would be to start a Torani collection. I think I'll have to go out and get some of those holiday flavors! I'm especially a fan of sugar-free stuff so I'll be sure to be on the lookout for the one you got!
