I have already purchased the Torani syrup and mostly it was delicious, if a little too sweet for my taste. Does anyone think that the DaVinci syrup has more flavor? I know they have more flavors..

Any advice would be appreciated before my next purchase...

I only have 2 flavors of the DaVinci....I think it's a little too sweet for me. But, I'm more of a salty-type person, not a sweets person..

It's probably just me, but I think a lot of the syrups taste the same or very similar. I probably bought way too many of them and after trying them, I could have used only a few. I have both the Torani and the DaVinci and I think the DaVinci has a more truer flavorto my taste buds anyways.

Here's my take on the flavors I bought:.

Eggnogtasty but I was never able to get a real good eggnog out of it and got similar results using nutmeg and a little cinnamonVanillaexcellent but got the same results with Splenda French VanillaHazelnutexcellent but also got the same results with Splenda HazelnutCaramelSUPERB in the Cappucino and the Apple OatmealButterscotchbetter straight out of the bottle. Did not make the vanilla pudding or shakes very butterscotch tastingGingerbreadSUPERB in the muffin/pancake recipesFrench Vanillatasted like the regular Vanilla syrupWhite Chocolatemajor disappointment: tasty out of the bottle but didn't really do anything for the shakes or puddings or cookiesKahluareally does taste like Kahlua only nothing seems to mask the taste of the vanilla or chocolate shakeIrish Cremesame as aboveTiramisutastes sort of like the irish cremeButter Toffeetastes like the irish creme w/a speck of butterscotchToasted MarshmallowSUPERB in the Hot Cocoa or Chocolate pudding.

I found most of these at a local discount store and got carried away with all the flavors. I'm still looking for ideas on how to use up the "non-superb" ones. Again, it's probably me, but many of them taste better straight out of the bottle. Perhaps that soy taste in the Medifast foods is just too strong to mask??..

Here on Maui, it's very hard to find any brand of these syrups, let alone Sugar Free ones. I found a SF Chocolate by Torani today. I really like the flavor drops from It would be great to find a true Butterscotch, Carmel and maybe a good cherry flavor (sugar free of course!)...

I only have one Torani - French Vanilla. And I have about 25 of the Davinci and love them. They are kind of sweet but Sue is right, the flavors are very true. My faves are Egg Nog, Caramel, Toasted Marshmallow, Peanut Butter, Chocolate, White Chocolate, Almond, Butterscotch, Kahlua, Dulce De Lece, Creme De Menthe, Coconut, Strawberry, Lemon, Spice Blend, Gingerbread, Cinnamon. Well, I could go on and on. I like all of them basically.

I couldn't think of what to do with those on MF...

I can get Torani syrups at SmartnFinal for only 3.99 but I think the Davinci brand has so much more flavor. IF you compare the Caramel of two, for example, the Davinci really actually tastes like caramel. No more Torani for me!..

Comment #5

Well, I ordered some DaVinci and one bottle of Torani and a sampler of Flavor Drops. Can't wait to see what delicious concoctions I can come up with...

Comment #6

I've never tried DaVinci but I have the SF Torani butter toffee at home and I love it...
