The Krista’s Kraving’s household was recently lucky enough to receive 3 flavours of Smucker’s syrups to try. **While these were send to me for free by the company, I want to stress that Smucker’s products are not strangers to my fridge and I have bought all these products myself many times before. In fact, I can’t think of a time that the chocolate syrup hasn’t been in my fridge!**
Now, I’m not going to try to pass these off as healthy or even good for you, but if you like ribbons of goodness on your treats, these syrups are for you! And I think most people must enjoy a treat like this once in awhile because Smucker’s has been doing business since 1897! That’s more than 110 yrs of syrup making!
My kids have been having a hay day with the chocolate and butterscotch flavours on their ice cream in the past week!
vanilla ice cream, cookie crumbles and butterscotch sauce
hubby’s vanilla, berries and chocolate sauce
vanilla, chocolate and SF caramel sauce
We’ve also drizzled all 3 over our apple pie: I have no photo, but it’s quite common for the kids to make chocolate milk with the chocolate sauce, too.
Personally, I like to swirl some of the SF caramel into my coffee for a Starbucks feel!
Three flavours I have yet to try are the chocolate fudge, strawberry and “magic” chocolate shell.
I told the fam that once these bottles are done we can try the others. I think the strawberry would be awesome.
I really like the syrups that come in the “upside down” squeeze bottles because they’re easier for the kids to handle, you have more control over how much you want to add, and they’re mess free AND recyclable.
Here are some fun facts that were gathered in a survey that Smucker’s did regarding how Canadians like their ice cream:
-89% like to top their ice cream off with syrup -38% prefer hot fudge while chocolate and caramel with tied with it being 29% of people’s favourite. -The most popular, unusual toppings are peanut butter, gummi bears and maple syrup (those sound perfectly normal to a bloggie like me!!) -Believe it or not, but there are some Canadians who choose to top their ice cream with chips, French fries, bacon and pickles. I think that’s just gross! LOL -And Canada’s IDEAL sundae is made up of one scoop of vanilla, one scoop of chocolate topped off with hot fudge syrup, whipping cream and sliced banana served in a waffle bowl, NO cherry on top.
So tell me, what is your ideal sundae??? I’d love to hear how you like to dress up your ice cream bowl! Me? I like vanilla ice cream with any type of fruit sauce/puree, walnuts and chocolate sauce!
