SF Chocolate Syrup

I know that food is a very subjective subject and that what tastes good to one person can be not good to another, but I have to warn folks that the Walmart brand Sugar Free Chocolate Syrup (generic of Hershey's syrup) is absolutely gross!! I don't know what they did to it, but it was terrible. I bought a bottle to have a squeeze on some LC ice cream and it ruined it! IT was bitter and weird!! I guess in some ways I am relieved that I tried it and didn't like it, as I don't need the extra couple of carbs anyway!! Diet rootbeer or Dr. Pepper or berries wiht my ice cream for me from now on!!

It doesn't taste weird....It tastes VERY WEIRD and it's AWFUL!!!!!! BLEH!!!! I have no idea what kind of horrible chemicals they are putting in this, but no. Just NO. I will make it from scratch, which isn't that great either unless you load it with maltitol (not a good idea), but anything beats this!!!!!

Hershy's SF chocolate syrup also tastes a little different, but it is not bad, at least to me. I put it over rhubarb sorbet on almond flour pound cake, and it was a pretty good dessert.

I thought the Hershey's was bitter and gross tasting. I threw the whole bottle in the garbage, and I don't usually waste anything with chocolate in it! I was surprised it was so bad because their SF candy is pretty good.

I was tempted to try Walden Farms, but didn't they get caught mislabeling their syrups years ago? I seem to recall that it had a lot more carbs than they claimed. Or maybe that was another company?
