I've been using these to make low carb ice cream and they've been incredible! Every one that I've tried (except for Butter Pecan) have yielded excellent results. I think I might try adding the Butter Pecan flavoring to sugar-free maple syrup to make a low carb version of IHOP's Butter Pecan Pancake Syrup.
I have tried the bakery emulsions before and found them lacking in flavor, but I was not using them in bakery products. This time I decided to try adding a different type of butter flavoring to enhance the Walden Farms pancake syrup, since I prefer strong flavors. Butter pecan was the closest option, so I gambled on it.
Wow. Suddenly pancake syrup took on a whole new dimension. I liked it so much I bought 2 more LorAnn's Butter Pecan and more pancake syrup. Tastes SOOOOOOOO good!
Now I know: keep bakery emulsions for baking and use fountain flavorings for liquids.

These flavors are great. I have only tried a few and have liked the ones that I have tried so far. I wish they had more flavors like egg nog,peanut butter and coffee flavors would be great. I use them in my frappe cafe latte and french vanilla frozen latte. I drink a few of these every day for meal replacement. Who can eat 6 meals a day. I end up eating one meal a day plus at least 3 or 5 of these every day.It never seems like I'm on a diet with all of these great products.

I made low carb "apple" pie filling with jicama. Have worked and worked to get the taste at least SOMEWHAT apple-y! I have tried two other brands of apple flavor/extract and was disappointed in the results. ( really gross and hideous tasting would be an accurate description). The LorAnn apple flavor is just SO GOOD! The taste is light and fresh, with no chemical ickiness. Like a Granny Smith apple,I'd say. Now if they could just "invent" a jicama that would soften up like a real apple! :O I really recommend this product.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE THESE OILS!!! I use them almost daily. I can now flavor *anything* with *any flavor* I choose since I have them *all*. I also bought the eye droppers to go with them and put them all in a sturdy plastic basket, each with it's own little eye dropper.
My favorites are the Cream Cheese and the Strawberry. Every day I fill a small cereal bowl with unsweetened almond milk and a dash of heavy whipping cream (0 carbs)and then add several drops of Splenda, the Cream Cheese and the Strawberry drops of oil, mix that, and add some "Nutritious Living HI-LO" cereal. SO GOOD!! Give your favorite flavors a try, in coffee, tea, smoothies, baked goods, MIMs - let your imagination go wild! Definitely a great *ZERO NET CARB* flavoring!
Please be aware, though, that the eye droppers come in a *4 pack*. So *4* 1oz bottles = one pack of the eye droppers.
These are great and very strong. Their website says they are 4x stronger than store bought extracts, so use 1/4 of what is called for in a recipe. I use the eye dropper and start with 1-3 drops depending on size of recipe, blend and taste to see if it needs more. I have never ruined a dish by using too much.
