* Although the caramel flavor is very good, I cannot recommend this product. According to Da Vinci, the shelf life of 2 wks, once opened is not sufficient enough for home use (unless you have 20 people using this product on a daily basis, is my guess). So either they package it in smaller bottles for home use or make it more stable once opened, or it ends up being money thrown away. If it were a product that was packaged more home user friendly, I could rate it a 5. It's good on l/c ice cream, cheesecake, in coffee and shakes. I would recommend that they bottle it in an 8 to 12 oz bottle.

* I am also another person who should have read all of the reviews before buying the chocolate sauce. I really do not like it at all. It has a very odd flavor. I am thinking about possibly trying it some recipes but, I am afraid it might just get thrown away instead. I love Da Vinci syrups but say skip the sauce.
* Enter Kahlua Da Vinci Syrup. There are so many in the list and not all are created equal. At about $8 a pop this is not good. I bought a few varieties at once (compulsive shopper type) and started with Kahlua. Thumbs down, way down. Use these syrups on some coffee once in a while and waffles on Saturdays and they do make you miss the real syrup for those allowed sugar (what a distant memory!) but Kalhua even more so! Next English Toffee and a lot better than Kalhua, more enjoyable in general. The Waffles (Big Mountain?) tasty, much better than anticipated and it made my Waffle machine very happy!
