Did you know that I love coffee?

This post is sponsored by SheSpeaks and Torani.

I don't know if you knew that about me or not. But, it's the truth, I love coffee.  Most of the coffee I drink is black. I went through a phase where I wouldn't drink coffee without no-fat hazelnut creamer.  But, the vast majority of my adult coffee drinking has been just plain old strong black coffee.

That being said, I Love (with a capital L), a frou-frou coffee every once in awhile.  Once a week if I can afford it. When I had the chance, through SheSpeaks and Torani, to try Torani syrups at home, I jumped at it.

When I received my box with Sugar Free Salted Caramel and Gingerbread syrups I was excited! And rightly so.  It's good stuff!  I tend to stay away from Sugar Free stuff for various reasons.  Because I'm not sure the things that make it sugar free are good for you and there is often an unpleasant after-taste.  I tried both flavors and have to say that the sugar-free Salted Caramel was my favorite.  I liked the Gingerbread too, but not as much as the Salted Caramel.  It was good stuff.  I tried it in my coffee and also in my coffee with half and half added.  I liked the added creaminess the half and half added.  The other coffee drinkers in our house tried them as well and gave them two-thumbs up.

I would recommend these syrups for your stay-at-home fancy coffees.  I also noticed there are LOTS of recipes using the syrups on their website, but I haven't had a chance to try any yet!  I was impressed with the variety, though, and look forward to giving some of them a try soon.  (There's even a BACON  syrup!!!)

I also plan on taking the syrups with us on our holiday visits and sharing them with everyone else!  Good stuff!!
