Monin Premium Gingerbread Syrup 1 L by Monin
5.0 out of 5 stars Unexpectedly good., 28 Aug 2014
Expensive and as per my other reviews of Monin products. Totally worth it!

I've tried several of the Monin products and other than the Vanilla (which was too weak in my opinion) all have been good with a strong, distinctive flavour. Much better than the cheaper alternatives.

This flavour was a bit of a risk for me because I generally stick to the ones I know and like, such as Hazelnut and Caramel.

It has a lovely smell and a nice spicy kick. Nothing over the top. I'm not a huge fan of gingerbread but this really did hit the spot. I won't be using it all the time but for a pick me up this is a nice treat.
Converse Ctas Core Hi 015860-610-8, Schwarz (Noir)&hellip Converse
There are many copies of the Converse product and none meet the quality or attention to detail levels of the Converse. They are comfortable but I find the rubber sole does not wear as well as I would like.

It is a soft compound and used often they wear pretty quickly. At least for me walking on pavements and around town.

I wish they did a model with a thicker sole and harder rubber compound for a longer use life. Maybe a more aggressive tread pattern. I'd buy that in a heartbeat.

They do look great though. A true casual classic.
Monin Premium Hazelnut Syrup 1 L by Monin
I've tried several of the Monin syrup products and have tried Hazelnut syrup from less expensive brands. The problem was I liked the taste but the cheaper ones lacked the strength of flavour you get down your local Costa.

Well as many people know Costa use the Monin products and I visited my local one to buy a bottle. 15 they wanted!

So I bought this via Amazon and the flavour is far more intense than the copy products.

Monin are not cheap but when you consider you don't need to use as much syrup to get the flavour I think they are worth the extra money. I wish they were cheaper but then I'd not want the quality to suffer.
