Oh my, Da Vinci Salted Caramel Syrup, Nectar of the Gods!

I've always shied away from the sugar free syrups because I had a bad experience a few years ago. I've heard so many good things that I decided to try them again and I ordered the Salted Caramel, Brown Sugar Cinnamon, Pineapple and Cherry.

Hubby and I did a taste test tonight pouring some of the Salted Caramel over ice cream. We were both groaning it was so good. Oh, the possibilities, it will be wonderful to pour in the cream cheese frosting for DJ Foodie's Cinnamon Roll.

I didn't like the brown sugar cinnamon as well, but it will be good in pumpkin one minute muffins. I saw a recipe that marinates chicken breasts in the pineapple syrup, then grill along with green pepper rings, and the cherry, has to be good in Diet Coke. I've got some things to try this weekend!

I'm so pleased that I tried these again, and thank you Netrition for having it on my doorstep in TWO days! Awesome!!!!!

I haven't tried DaVinci's yet but have tried Torani's. It's right tasty stuff!

I LOVE the DV pineapple. I use it for sweet 'n sour pork or chicken. I also put it in my BBQ sauce sometimes.

I think I will order some of the DV Pineapple since you say it's good Charski. I found DV salted caramel on the internet, but it wasn't SF and loaded with extra sugar. I didn't care for the DV caramel, but might try the Torani's. Thanks for the info........ Ann

Da Vinci apparently doesn't make a salted caramel flavor but Torani does and Netrition has it.

I've made a salted caramel cheesecake with the Toriani's and drizzled sugar free caramel sauce over the top, then put 6 butter toffee peanuts when serving it up......

Wow! Thanks for posting this. The daughter and I were just discussing making our own frapachinos this weekend. Definitely going on the 'to order list'!

Iwantlessofme, I will as soon as we figure it out. We are playing with the coffee to cream to syrup ratio. Trying to get close to Starbucks. But, yep will let you know when we do!
