Polaner Sugar Free Blueberry Topping Review

Polaner Sugar Free Blueberry ToppingThere are days when I get the strong urge to whip up a batch of pancakes. It just seems like the thing to do on a beautiful weekend morning. Nutritionally, you could do worse than a stack of pancakes if you make them with whole grains and minimize the amount of butter added to them. Until, of course, you drown them in a calorie laden syrup, which will set you back a whopping 200 calories per 1/4 cup (I'm looking at you Aunt Jemima).

Having the craving for blueberry pancakes, I naturally desired a blueberry syrup to top them with. Lo and behold, I spotted Polaner Sugar Free Blueberry Topping at my store. It comes in a little jar lacking a pour-spout, which meant that I had to spoon it out onto my pancakes - that was a little different. The texture, however, was surprisingly thick and ... syrupy. It has a wonderful blueberry flavor, and it's not as sweet as a traditional blueberry syrup, but it's still sweet enough.

One 10 ounce jar of Polaner Sugar Free Blueberry Topping will set you back about $1.50, which is a bit expensive, so use sparingly, because it's worth buying. One serving (two tablespoons) only has 20 calories, or 40 calories per 1/4 cup, no fat or sugar. That's pretty impressive for a syrup of this quality. The sweetener used is Splenda, and don't worry about any off- or after-taste, because there is none.

Another pancake syrup that I heart Aunt Jemima Butter Lite Syrup (read the review) , but that has 100 calories and 25 grams of sugar in a 1/4 cup serving. Sorry Auntie J, looks like Polaner is going to be taking over in my pantry for a while.
