Nope, it's not what you think.
I went shopping for my twice a year haul from my local restaurant supply store.
Sometimes they're called
Fart n' Smile "Smart & Final" or "Cash N' Carry." There are so many wonderful things in these stores. Of course there's a lot of low quality / high quantity foods meant for restaurants. But there's some weight loss surgery (WLS) friendly treasures in there if you look close enough.
Aaahhhh...the syrups aisle!
With the explosion of all those yummy coffee drinks, there are so many different flavors of sugar free syrups now that weren't even available two years ago. I use these syrups in my coffee, hot cocoa, yogurt and cooking.
By the way, the regular syrups are 90 calories per pump (ounce). If you've ever seen them make those fancy coffees at Starbucks, you'll see them pump 4-5 pumps into ONE drink. That's 360-450 calories before they add the cream/whip/etc. Yikes.
I love the Torani brand since it is made with Splend@. It's my favorite formaldehyde-filled cancer-causing sweetener. Yum.
Here's what I took home at $4.19/bottle (no sales tax in Oregon!) This will last me until early fall.
Some new flavors that I have added into the rotation? Salted Caramel, Strawberry, and Almond Roca
|From L to R: Gingerbread, Pumpkin Pie, Salted Caramel, French Vanilla, Peppermint, |
Brown Sugar Cinnamon, Almond Roca, Strawberry, Peanut Butter, and Chocolate.
See how cute and tiny they are?
What's your favorite grocery store or restaurant supply store find? I wanna know.
