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.

Grateful to have stumbled on to flavor essence
The flavors that I have used so far are...: Pineapple, coconut, raspberry + many more
And I use the flavors in...: Sparkling water, coffee

I originally stumbled across Flavor Essence on a Sodastream subreddit. I’m so glad I did. Flavor Essence offers so many unique flavors in convenient squeeze bottles that allow you to control the amount of flavoring you add to the drop. I’m in seltzer heaven! The pineapple flavor is especially great. I would like to see a green apple in the future but I’m not sure how popular that would be but fingers crossed! I can’t wait to see what other flavors Mick comes up with in the future.

by AuntWoodie from VA on Flavor Essence
The flavors that I have used so far are...: Caramel creme brûlée, coconut, rich dark chocolate, peach, milk chocolate, black cherry, custard creme
And I use the flavors in...: Yogurt, coffee, water

The customer service and the products are fantastic! I especially love the coconut in my plain yogurt! I like the caramel creme brûlée and both chocolates in water and (for a change) in coffee. I also use the caramel creme brûlée in plain yogurt sometimes.

I think it is really neat also that I get a little personal message with each order!
