Some tasty beverage uses for Flavor Essence flavorings: 

Stir into water, sparkling water, hot or iced coffees and teas, protein shakes, smoothies, juices, & other blender drinks, as well as exotic martinis and cocktails. [Distillers, Brewers, Kombucha and CBD manufacturers are also using these as natural background flavorings in their own processes]

Some tasty food uses for Flavor Essence flavorings:

Stir into muffin and cake mixes, cookie doughs, bread recipes, frostings, whipped and butter creams, pancake batters. Also works well when stirred in oatmeals, yogurts, cream cheeses etc. These also “behave” very well in flavoring ice cream, butters, and salad dressings. [And a little known secret is that whenever you do want to make your own syrups, these are cleanest base for your own custom-flavored syrups).

Flavor Essence Ingredients:

The composition of each flavoring is specifically kept as very simple as possible– with only natural flavors, water and alcohol (vegan and gluten free). And uniquely to these products, the alcohol which acts as our natural preservative is kept to a very nominal level –of less than 1/30th of a teaspoon per serving. This is equivalent to about 150 cups of coffee with these flavors to about 1 glass of wine or what is less than the naturally occurring alcohol in fresh squeezed unpasteurized orange juice.

Flavor Essence -No Unwanted Ingredients — And you won’t experience an odd after-taste or “off-note” flavor in the background taste or the “finish”—unless you use too much of a flavoring.

EXACT MATCH TO DUNKIN DONUTS BLUEBERRY FLAVOR!!!
The flavors that I have used so far are...: Blueberry
And I use the flavors in...: Coffee, tea and water

I have searched for almost 2 full years to find something the equivalent of dunkin Donuts blueberry flavor. Nothing was even close to compare. After reading the reviews I decided to give this company a shot, but a little skeptical. I am beyond pleased with the product!! It's an EXACT match!! I offered to buy the bottles from multiple dunkin Donuts but no one would sell it to me. 😔 so glad I found this product!!! I Will DEFINITELY be a regular customer to this company for all my flavor needs!! Thank you thank you thank you for a FANTASTIC product!!

Best way to make flavored seltzers!
The flavors that I have used so far are...: Coconut, Lemon, Strawberry, Peach, Pineapple
And I use the flavors in...: Seltzer

Just wow, if you're looking for additives to make flavored seltzer from your sodastream or homebrew carbonation setup - stop looking and choose these. I'm blown away by how awesome these are, exactly what I wanted. Sodastream's brand of flavorings have an awful "syrupy" taste that spoils the drink, and all the others include sugar or a sweetener that is simply not needed. I use ~15 drops in about 900mL of unflavored seltzer carbonated to ~4bar pressure (so ~30 Oz and 60psi), usually split across 2-3 flavors. Peach/pinapple makes a great combination, as does the Coconut and a splash of lime juice (though if they came out with a lime flavor I'd probably buy that too).



Make a Mango flavor next please 🙂

Great company all around
The flavors that I have used so far are...: Toasted almond, Caramel......just ordered coconut and dark chocolate too
And I use the flavors in...: iced coffee
Recipe or Flavor Hints to Other People: Will try the fruit flavor and the pindapple in seltzer

I ordered and tried 3 brands from Amazon when I decided to try unsweetened flavor shots. Of the 3 I tried.....this company's were the very best! The flavor are true......and you don't need a lot to get great taste. But above and beyond the quality of the product, the owner writes a thank you note with every order! And sends information about combinations and ideas to use the flavors. A personalized thank you is going above and beyond....and I really appreciate it!

can't live without these
The flavors that I have used so far are...: I've tried all of them!
And I use the flavors in...: coffee, tea, crio bru, seltzer, smoothie bowls, homemade protein powder, baked goods, tempeh sausages (the bacon one)
Recipe or Flavor Hints to Other People: try the caramel creme brulee in coffee!

I have a flavor extract habit!! These are fantastic. My favorites are the caramel, coconut, banana, cherry, and raspberry.



I wish you'd make coffee and hazelnut flavors! And maybe butter?

Simply Wonderful
The flavors that I have used so far are...: French Vanilla Creme
And I use the flavors in...: Sparkling and seltzer water

I was looking for a new way to enjoy vanilla water as my usual brand changed their recipe (at least my tastebuds think they did). I put 14 drops into 24 oz of unflavored seltzer and it was fabulous. I’m now shopping for new flavors. I love the personal note enclosed in the order, such a sweet gesture.
