Some tasty food uses for the flavorings:

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.

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.
I LOVE the pineapple in my water and have tried so many other flavors, haven’t found one that I haven’t liked yet.
I am obsessed with these flavors! I haven't dabbled with adding them to baking recipes yet, but they are amazing in my seltzer and fun flavored cocktails. Thanks Mick!!
I love this stuff! Just ordered a 5 pack before my first bottle runs out. Please add a hazelnut flavor, and a butter pecan.
Please make hazelnut!!! 💜
Also, my great uncle Derek Owen lives in Hopkinton at Owen Farm. Small world! Lol.
