Smucker's did a pretty decent job with their Sugar Free Apricot Preserves so I decided to try another one of their sugar free products and opted for the Smucker's Sugar Free Breakfast Syrup. I had really high hopes for this syrup, and luckily it delivered.
I had it in mind to use it to jazz up a bowl of canned pumpkin (hello Libby's Canned Pumpkin) by adding some maple syrup and zap it in the microwave. It sounded so good in theory, that I purchased the syrup and went home to try and create my pumpkin syrup mash-up. Let me tell you - this is, by far, the best sugar free syrup I've tried! . Often times low calorie/sugar free syrups tend to be watery and 'un-syrupy,' but Smucker's Sugar Free Syrup is thick and sweet. This tasted amazing in a bowl of pure pumpkin, and I am sure it would be fantastic in oatmeal, on pancakes and in any other situation where syrup is a necessity
1 serving (1/4 cup) of Smucker's Sugar Free Syrup provides 25 calories, 8 grams of carbohydrates (7 grams of which are sugar alcohols) and not much else other than 85 mg of sodium. 1/4 cup goes a long way! This is great in terms of bang for your caloric buck, but if you are anti-nutrasweet, aspartame or artificial sweeteners in general then this probably isn't for you.
I paid $3.59 for this at my local market, and while I am no syrup connoisseur it seems pretty reasonable. I was really happily surprised by this product as it far exceeded my expectations, and I will certainly be buying it again.
