Picture from DaVinci Site
DaVinci Gourmet has been in business in Seattle Washington since 1989. They have maintained their commitment to integrity, teamwork and the highest quality ingredients over the years, while creating unparalleled flavored syrups, gourmet sauces and chocolate confections. They also donate a portion of all their sales to Coffee Kids (more about that later-you know how I love when companies donate to a great cause!) On their site there is even a section for recipes!!
Now, this is going to sound strange but I was VERY happy that all 5 bottles were plastic. Yes I will re use or recycle them but then there is my “swipe it on the floor cat” who took an immediate liking to the box it came in. I forgot to take the peanuts out right away and suddenly heard a piteous crying—her highness had put a plastic bag in the box-unfortunately the bag would not fill itself—after I did the not very large box was suddenly filled with cat!! I immediately opened the Zero Calorie Raspberry and added approx 4 tablespoons to a large Dunkin Donuts cup (32 ozs?)-stirred and drank it up—it tasted delicious!! I truly have been getting tired of stirring those powders until they dissolve—and I can drink 3 or 4 of those cups of water a day in the summer!
A couple of hours later I decided to add the Zero Calorie Chocolate to my coffee-I only added one tablespoon worth (the bottle says to use 2 teaspoons) instead of the usual sweetener I use. I also taste tested it off the spoon—YUMMY and I think I am going to have to go out and buy some seltzer, add Almond Milk and then this chocolate syrup—CHOCOLATE EGGCREAM here I come (with little to no carbs or sugar!).
This morning I decided to try the Sugar Free Hazelnut in my coffee. Used 3 tablespoons this time and once I had it made-after picking the cap off the floor—then the bottle (luckily already recapped! And you wondered why I was so happy that these are plastic bottles)—You can smell and taste the hazelnut-love it!!
This is what I was sent:
12.7 fl oz of DaVinci Gourmet Sugar Free Hazelnut Syrup
12.7 fl oz of DaVinci Gourmet Sugar Free Vanilla Syrup
12.7 fl oz of DaVinci Gourmet Zero Calorie Raspberry Syrup
12.7 fl oz of DaVinci Gourmet Zero Calorie Chocolate Syrup
12.7 fl oz of DaVinci Gourmet Zero Calorie Caramel Syrup
Each of the labels has a little chart to give you an example of how many teaspoons they recommend for each beverage listed-of course I did not see this but then I have a very big sweet tooth!!
The Nutrition facts on each of the 5 bottles was exactly the same:
Total Fat 0
Sodium 10 mg
Total Carbs 0
Their list of flavors is never ending!! I know I am going to be purchasing some of the fruit flavored syrups for my water drinking for sure. The macadamia nut is calling my name for coffee as well!! You really have to check DaVinci Gourmet out whether you are a diabetic or not (remember they do have sugar varieties as well as all natural ones!)
Now a word about the charity they give to in their own words
Working with the Community
Coffee Kids was started to address the plight of the small-scale coffee farmer. Unlike many non-profit organizations, Coffee Kids does not seek to tell those in need how to improve their lives. With the exception of during times of natural disaster recovery, Coffee Kids does not provide direct aid in the form of goods or traditional donations. Instead, Coffee Kids works with the members of coffee growing communities and assists them in seeing their local vision transformed into reality.
