Skinny syrup

Has anyone tried the skinny syrups and sauces. They're not bad price wise and allegedly have next to nothing calorie wise etc but do they taste any good?

The bbq, maple syrup and salted caramel are good, as long as you don’t use loads and they are mixed with other flavours. The peanut one is a bit odd but it’s ok. My husband likes the fruity ones too. I’ve heard the ketchup isn’t very nice.
I’m on Keto so I can’t have normal bbq sauce or maple syrup, so these syrups do the job for me.

Ooooh placemarking if that's ok!
I've been eyeing up the coffee syrup options but keep worrying they're full of crap and will do me more bad than good in the long run.

I have the Carmel syrup and it's is nice blended into frozen coffee.

I use the myprotein butterscotch & raspberry - both lovely but I don't use them in drinks but on porridge & fruit and yoghurt. Not sure if some of the flavours would work in a hot drink, am sure would be ok in a shake.

Where can you buy them from?

BeeFarseer Thu 28-May-20 19:28:27

Amazon stock them.

I really like them. I am watching my carb intake so they are great for helping wkth that. Some flavours are nicer than others. I like the caramel in coffee. Not keen on the chocolate or minty ones.

I have a strawberry rose one at the moment, and it's lovely with sparkling water. I don't taste the rose though but it's a nice, sweet drink.

I have seen these online loads and I always wonder what the fuck they are actually made from?!

@JoeExoticsEyebrowRing same! If they have nothing in them as they claim maybe it's just air!

Filling your body with fake sweeteners isnt going to be good for it.

At random, 'maple':
Water, Thickeners (Sodium carboxy methyl cellulose, Xanthan gum), Salt, Colour (Caramel E150d), Flavouring, Acid (Lactic Acid), Sweetener (Sucralose), Preservatives (Potassium sorbate, Sodium benzoate)

It's certainly better than filling my body with carbs, which it is unable to deal with correctly due to impaired glucose tolerance.

Well I wouldn't be wasting either then!
