Default Da Vinci Syrups--omg!

I've heard about Da Vinci syrups but have never tried them myself. While doing some internet searching for a low-carb eggnog recipe I came across a link about Da Vinci syrups, which are sugar and carb free and supposedly taste AMAZING. I was under the impression that Da Vinci syrups only came in stuff like caramel, chocolate, etc but I was VERY WRONG! For those of you who were Da Vinci clueless like me, check out this list:

Almond
Amaretto
B-52
Banana
Blueberry
Butter Rum
Butterscotch
Caramel
Chai Tea
Cherry
Chocolate
Cinnamon
Coconut
Cookie Dough
Cream de Menthe
Dulce de Leche
Egg Nog
English Toffee
French Vanilla
German Chocolate Cake
Gingerbread
Original Hazelnut
Huckleberry
Irish Cream
Kahlua
Lemon (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
Lime
Macadamia Nut
Orange
Pancake
Peach
Peanut Butter
Peppermint Paddy
Pineapple
Praline
Pumpkin Pie
Raspberry
Sweetening Syrup
Strawberry
Toasted Marshmallow
Vanilla
Watermelon
White Chocolate

Can you say YUM? These would be awesome for the holidays...Imagine some almond milk mixed with some ice and Egg Nog syrup in a blender for an Egg Nog milkshake? Or dessert coffees with unlimited options...Pumpkin pie coffee, Gingerbread coffee...I see there's also a Chai Tea flavor, I love Chai Tea! In the summer, SNOWCONES! You could pour cherry, watermelon, grape, pretty much any fruity flavor over shaved ice and have a snowcone!

Be careful though because I'm sure these syrups could stall if used excessively, and none of them should be used excessively. They may also trigger sugar cravings.
I want to pick out a couple to order for the holidays...I'm looking at you, Pumpkin Pie and Egg Nog!

I've been making sugar-free egg nog for a diabetic friend for years during the holidays. And we put a big shot of bourbon in it too! I'll dig up the recipe and post it. It's absolutely delicious.

They are very good (IMHO that is lol), I used to make home made whipped cream, Atkins friendly and add some orange to it. I would also marinate my chicken in the orange before putting it on the grill. The coconut one is good too...

Sandy--That would be awesome! Eggnog and green bean casserole are my favorite holiday treats. I plan on having a bit of green bean casserole but eggnog is full of sugar and I need my eggnog fix somehow!

LoveRyGuy--I think I read that they don't have that yucky artificial sweetener aftertaste.

Leenie--The pumpkin was sold out on the website that I was looking at but I might be able to find it elsewhere. If I end up ordering it I'll let you know.

I love these! I'm bummed because I can only find the Sugar Free Toffee here in Japan . Nobody will ship the others to my APO address, either. I used to get all sorts of flavors at World Market in the states! There are a 100 different ways to use them and I agree they don't have any weird aftertaste like the powdered sweeteners do.

I'm not Linsy, but I love the pumpkin pie. I use it in my protein shake to make pumpkin pie flavored shakes - vanilla protein powder, almond milk, a little cinnamon and the pumpkin pie syrup. I bought mine at World Market. http://www.worldmarket.com/home/index.jsp
