Monin Flavoured Coffee Syrups

Hey roses
I'm pretty sure most people love going to Starbucks or Costa and getting their favourite coffee concoction. I know I do. I love all the flavours you can get there like caramel and gingerbread, and especially the amazing Christmas ones! Ahh my mouth is watering just thinking about it. Now if you watch them make the coffee you will see that they add syrups to get the different flavours. One day I thought 'Oh my god I would love to buy them syrups and add them too my coffee everyday'. The thought left my mind for a few months but then came back again when my morning brew started to get a bit boring. Next step... Internet!


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Monin-Coffee-Syrup-Gift-Set-5-x-50ml - £9.99
And I found them straight away on eBay. I bought a set of 5 different mini bottles for £9.99 and free postage. Bargain! The flavours included were caramel, vanilla, hazelnut, gingerbread and chocolate cookie. They are exactly the same as the ones used in the coffee shops and are great to add a little extra something to your morning boost.

I love coffee, probably a little too much. But don't worry I do only drink one cup a day because I know how bad it is for you. I have one cup every morning to get me started for the day, if I don't have it I feel terrible and sometimes get headaches. This is probably bad but oh well.

It took some experimenting to get the quantities right but I think I now have it down to a fine art. I add about a couple of millimeters of the syrup to the bottom of my cup, add a teaspoon of coffee, pour in hot water and top it off with milk. I used to have sugar in my coffee but I thought syrup is not good for you so it would be doubly as bad to have both, therefore I cut out the sugar but to be honest it's all down to your taste preference. 



I am so glad I finally bought them, my favourite flavours are gingerbread and hazelnut. If you love Starbucks and Costa's flavoured coffee's as much as I do then you will loveeeeee these syrups. They will also make a great present for absolutely anyone (as long as they drink coffee). 

Here's a link to where I bought mine but you can find them on loads of different sites if you don't like eBay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Monin-Coffee-Syrup-Gift-Set-5-x-50ml

Lots of love treacles

    They're a staple in my cupboards now as I can't drink a coffee without a syrup at the bottom.
    Can't believe you got so many for so cheap.

    1. Yes definetely. Hehe I think starbucks might use cardamon in their vanilla spiced latte so you could try sprinkling a bit in with the vanilla syrup... don't hold me to that though lol x
