33 Days To Go! | Monin Gingerbread Syrup

I know, I know, it’s not even hit December, I shouldn’t be talking Christmas just yet, but when you work in retail it’s pretty much been Christmas since August! So surprisingly I’m still growing a tad festive day by day, and also very excitable.
I had my very first Gingerbread Latte of the season yesterday, and it was B-E-A-Utiful. Sweet and gingery...Yum! It was making me envision myself skipping through a winter wonderland, wearing a massive, white, glittering, furry hat, just heading to  pat a reindeer whilst it grazed on candy cane grass, all as I sipped my Christmas beverage.
Winter is just magical.
So, when I snapped out of that little fantasy, I headed off to do some boring errands and food shopping. Not so magical. However, some lovely elves had put this out on the shelves! It’s like they knew :] I found this in Tesco, and it was only £2.99! How could I resist buying it?

Ahhhhhh! I am my very own ‘Cost-star-ero’. Haha.
I can make as many soya gingerbread coffees as I like, whenever I like! I can add a splash to some hot chocolate too, or if I’m feeling extremely festive, just go right ahead and neck it from the bottle for an amazing sugar rush. (I’m exaggerating, don’t do that please!)
It tastes just as good in my own, homemade coffee, compared to any gingerbread drinks I’ve bought. The best thing is you have complete control over your gingerbread level :]
You can have a little splash (gingernut crumb level), or a dash of coffee with your gingerbread syrup (Hansel & Gretel house level) If you see this on your ventures, and you like gingerbread goodness, defiantly pick it up.
What's your favourite Christmas drink?


  1. Hi Gem, love the blog. I love Monin, I haven't tried a bad product from them! Just out of curiosity, can you use the gingerbread syrup for other uses instead of coffee alone IE alcoholic beverages, baking, desserts etc.

  2. Hi Fiona, thank you very much! I assume you can because it's just a syrup, so you could use it in cocktails and baking like you suggest :)

  3. I'm still to try the Monin gingerbread, but with Christmas quickly approaching, I'm sure I will be doing soon enough!


Thanks for taking the time to comment :]
