I’d like to thank you all for your continued interest and requests for additional sugar-free options at Starbucks. We are considering alternate sweeteners and optimizing our current syrup line-up. Currently, we carry Sugar-free Caramel, Hazelnut, and Vanilla. We are working on a couple of new products we hope to share with you this spring. Keep the ideas coming!
In the meantime, I want to share some new ways to try the sugar-free syrups we have available right now. Sugar-free syrups can be a great addition to a variety of drinks on our menu including lattes, which many of you have already tried. Following are some of my favorite ways to use our three sugar-free syrups (Caramel, Vanilla and Hazelnut) in beverage customizations.
• Sugar-free Vanilla tastes great in place of vanilla syrup in a Caramel Macchiato.
• Try blending various ratios of sugar-free syrups with regular syrups such as a half Sugar-free Hazelnut and half regular Hazelnut syrup in a Latte to save calories and sugar. Or, try substituting Sugar-free Hazelnut syrup in place of regular Hazelnut syrup in a Hazelnut Mocha.
• Substituting Sugar-free syrup in place of regular syrup in a Frappuccino® Blended Coffee or Crème is great too! My favorite is Caramel Frappuccino® blended coffee made with Sugar-free Caramel syrup.
• Don’t forget, sugar-free syrup is yummy in iced coffee and tea too!
As you can see, there are lots of customizations available and whether you’re looking to reduce calories or lower sugar content, sugar-free syrup can be a great addition to your beverage. For example, one pump of regular syrup can add about 20 calories and five grams of sugar, but one pump of our sugar-free syrups contains 0 calories and 0 grams of sugar. This is because they are made with sucralose (Splenda®), a non-caloric sweetener. Over time, the calories and sugar saved can add up, so go ahead and try them out and keep the great ideas for the future coming!
More sugar-free syrup flavors!
