Beverage Flavored Dessert Toppings?


Spotted these "Dessert Toppers" at Price Chopper the other day.  Somehow, pouring Dr. Pepper Cherry syrup on anything doesn't really appeal to me (same goes for Orange Crush and even A&W Root Beer.) They're basically a blend of corn syrup and high-fructose corn syrup and artificial flavorings.  This is one strange product that I will probably never review, but if any of you have tried it, feel free to leave a comment.

I've tried the A&W, still have the bottle in my pantry. It is good, but not something I would buy again. The root beer flavor is almost overwelming. Think of pouring your favorite A&W soda into a saucepan, adding about a cup of sugar and reducing till it's a syrup so thick it sticks to everything. It's super sweet, root beer-y, and decent in a SMALL quantity over plain vanilla ice cream, almost tastes like a root beer float. It's not bad stuff by any means, and I would say worth trying once.

I have a bottle of the cherry Dr Pepper syrup around here somewhere. I've always loved the taste of flat Dr Pepper, and that is exactly what the syrup tastes like. It's pretty good on vanilla ice cream, but I haven't really thought of any other uses for it.

It might be good as part of a glaze or sauce of some sort? I still have 90% of a bottle, maybe I'll try it.
