My Fav DaVinci Sugar Free Syrup is COOKIE DOUGH
I also like the Rasberry // Macadamia Nut // English Toffee // & Gingerbread
They are addictive but expensive.
I add them to my Protein Shakes :cheers: --Pookie

I love these syrups too but find them a little expensive. I have found the same type of syrups at naturesflavors.com I think they are just as good, but cost less.
I haven't seen "cookie dough flavor" - sounds YUMMY to me!

I get mine at walmart for $2 cheeper than on the web.
I love hazelnut, vanilla (for my coffee).
Hubby loves the pineapple, he adds it to cottage cheese (you can also drizzle some on cheesecake ;) )
The gingerbread one is GROSS !!

Can you get DaVinci in Canada? If so, WHERE? I"ve heard to much about them, I'd love to try it...

I see them at Walmart super store. I also frequently see them at TJ Maxx, so if you are lucky enough to have one of those, check their shelves often because they are so cheap there.

Does splenda (which is the sweetener in DaVinci, right?) go bad with time as nutrasweet does?

I use 2 tsp of the DV hazelnut syrup in my ricotta cheese :T

Toated Marshmallow is very good on a baked sweet potato.
Lanaii, I don't know if you can get them from a retailer in Canada, but I bet DaVinci online will ship there.
My fave flavor is SF French vanilla. I use it to make mock chai lattes -- chai tea with a splash of skim milk and the vanilla syrup. It satisfies my sweet tooth after dinner when I get that "dessert" craving.

I'll keep my eyes out here on this side of the border. I saw a post from a Canadian saying she found some at an independent coffee house somewhere, but I am not sure where she lives (I'm guessing TO or Vancouver). The only SF syrops I see are Atkins and E.D. Smith's.
It does sound like we're missing out... I LOVE chai lattees...

I love the DaVinci syrups. I get them at United Grocers for about $3.50 each (that's half the cost of anywhere else around here!)
* Italian sodas (club soda mixed w/syrup and sometime cream)
* Flavored whipped cream
* Cherry cokes or cherry 7ups
* Shake with vodka and ice for tasty 'tini's
* Flavored cream cheese (reminds me of cheesecake)

You can get similar syrups from a company called Torani - they are available in Canada at Second Cup coffe shops. I don't know if they are available nation wide though.
Starbucks in Canada has sugar free vanilla syrup but I haven't seen any other flavours yet.
I tried this today and thought it was a pretty decent hot chocolate substitute:
1 T. unsweetened cocoa powder (like Hersheys)
1 cup water
SF vanilla syrup
Mix the tablespoon of cocoa powder with about a T or two of water in the bottom of a mug until it's a smooth paste. Add a cup of water and microwave until hot. Sweeten with vanilla syrup to taste.
Calories = 20 (for the T. of cocoa powder)
