Wow leens....they sound supremely yummy - just think of the possibilities!
Unfortunately in Canada the Da Vinci Syrups are not readily available (altho I heard of a health food place near where I get my car serviced so will have to check it out next time I'm out there!). I now have a few bottles of Torani sf syrup in my collection and they are pretty good: sf vanilla: all purpose good for everything from plain yogurt to whipping cream, I have recently added the sf raspberry - quite yummy and the chocolate (Mostly for dh altho I did make some chocolate yogurt the other day and it was pretty good!).
Let us know what your hubby thinks of the new flavors (nod, nod, wink, wink).

I have the cherry syrup. It's wonderful! I use it in my sodas or make snow cones with it (when it's not freezing outside). The taste reminds me so much of marichino cherries that sometimes I just stick my finger in it - yummmmmmmmmm!
Which reminds me of a story - so last weekend I was at the pub where my husband works weekends and I went to get some more water. Up at the bar, they have this container with different compartments for limes, lemons, olives, etc. and it has a frosted plastic cover on top. I was standing right in front of it and was looking down when I noticed that one of the compartments had these little round red things in it. I was so confused! I stood there for a full minute trying to figure out why and when they had started using cherry tomatoes before I realized that they were marichino cherries. See? Still a dork!

I've tried the vanilla and hazelnut. They both are delicious. I just received my natures best "syrups" yesterday. I've not been impressed. Only the butterscotch and pralines were syrups. The other flavors were sauces. It said you could put them in coffee and tea but they are thicker. I'll try them all this weekend. So far I've tried the pralines - not too good in coffee. I'll add a little cream next time. Butterscotch is pretty good to stick finger in. Chocolate Caramel wasn't too tasty in coffee either. Maybe cream will help that one too. I might have to reserve these just for heavy cream for a quick desert.
