A Little Bit of Sweetness
Sweeeeeeeeet! Now you know how much I like my brews well I can never resist a bit of sweetness in there, I've never been able to shake off the sugar or sweetness. When I'm out at any coffee shop I can never quite resist the syrups, they come in all sorts of different yummy flavours and it just feels like a treat popped in there.
I like it that much I thought I may have to have a bit at home too. I started with those teeny weeny little bottles that you see in the supermarket but they never lasted very long so I plummeted for a proper big industrial size.
They don't come cheap which is my only peeve about these. For something like this Sweetbird Caramel a litre bottle can be around the £10 mark but it does last me a while. I don't use it all the time and only have a couple of squirts of it in a coffee. I also buy the sugar free variety too as this is free on Slimming World.
Keep an eye out for reduced prices on Amazon as they do vary quite a bit in price even between the different flavours. I tend to flip between the Sweetbird and also the Monin varieties as the prices are sometimes different. It's worth doing the research. I have also bought the pump for the bottle too which just not only makes you look like a Barista but makes it easier to apply to the brew.
I like the Vanilla, Caramel, Hazlenut and have to have a bottle of the Gingerbread at Christmas, just gets me in the mood. I go for frothy coffees with squirty cream at that time as well, it just has to be done.
So there you go, you can have a bit of syrup, you pay quite a bit of cash but you don't pay any syns for it. I'm just keeping my addiction down to one bottle at a time but if I could, I'd have them all in. You can actually use this syrup in baking and in milk shakes too so it's handy having a bottle around.
If you would like to order this caramel syrup (pictured) you can find the link (affiliated) here:
and if you would like a pump for it too you can find one here at Amazon:
As I said these are the Sweetbird variety but there are other makes available. Enjoy and let me know if you enjoy these syrups too.
Thank you so much for reading today, join me again tomorrow for my Verse for Thursday.....where do these weeks go? Phew!!
