Flavors of The Season (Sponsored by Torani and SheSpeaks)

Recently I was sent two bottles of Torani syrup to test through the SheSpeaks panel blogger society. *Note: While this is a sponsored post the following oppinions are my own completely honest thoughts and I didn't recieve any compensation for them.* I recieved two bottles of syrup towards the end of last month and I was excited to see which seasonal flavors I would be sent. I decided to have Torani send me one sugar free and one regular. They sent me a bottle of sugar free salted caramel and a bottle of gingerbread syrup.

We decided to try them first in Italian sodas. I am not usually a fan of sugar free syrups but since my mom drinks them and so does my diabetic brother who was home for Thanksgiving I requested one sugar free bottle. After trying them in Italian soda we quickly decided these flavors are not well suited for this type of beverage.

After that we mulled over some more ideas in our head for a while and finally got the opportunity today to try out a couple of our ideas. We decided to try making a salted caramel whipped cream to top hot cocoa and other seasonal drinks. And we also added some gingerbread syrup to our sugar cookie batter. The hot cocoa with whipped cream as well as the gingerbread sugar cookies are quite tasty! I think if I was a coffee drinker I would enjoy these two syrup in lattes. I really enjoyed this program and can't wait to try out more recipes using the great syrup Torani sent us.
