These are great. They give me all of the flavor I was looking for without the excessive sweetness of flavor syrups.
I found these when searching for ways to make my own Hint-like flavored water, and on a whim ordered them because I liked that they were all natural, sugar free with no artificial sweeteners, and locally made not too far from my hometown!
First off, I think the prices are amazing. I got the five pack for $30(?)--cannot remember--and I loved the way they came packaged. The two ounce size is a great deal because you don't need to use a lot (I use anywhere from a few drops to a squirt). I gave the link to my son, who drinks a ton of seltzer, and at least two of my friends--one of whom ordered a five pack of her own. I can't wait to try more flavors. My favorites so far are the blueberry, mango, and coconut. I heard from my friend that the strawberry and black cherry are delicious also!
I really wish there was a watermelon flavor though!😁
These flavors are just what my partner and I were looking for -- something to help us replace canned flavored sparkling water with a SodaStream. We were having trouble finding flavors that weren't artificially sweetened before we found Flavor Essence. We're having a great time mixing flavors to find new favorites! We really appreciated the helpful directions, tips, and tricks, as well as the handwritten notes. It's great to know that we are supporting a great company! Thank you so much! 🙂
I drink 64 oz plus of water a day. these flavorings are great for changing the boring taste of the water. the rich dark chocolate flavor is like drinking my favorite ice cream. would highly recommend these to anyone
Just received my order and all of the flavors taste very good! Placed an order for the Blueberry and ended up trying the Custard Creme in my coffee first! An even better aspect to the great flavors is the customer service! I literally said “awww” out loud when there was a hand written note to my carrier to not leave the package in the lobby and a hand written thank you with usage tips in the box. What a class act company! Will definitely order some of the other flavors and will be sure to share the company name with others! Thank you for making my day.

Like many others, I discovered this tiny company and their amazing flavor essences by searching for an alternative to buying sparkling water (we call it "fuzzy" water in our house). Not just for the expense and trouble of buying pre-made cans of water, but because we would fall in love with a flavor -- only to have our local stores stop carrying it, or the price would increase to unbelievable heights once a flavor caught on.
Flavor Essence is truly a labor of love for the owner of this company who not only personally researches and develops his products, but manufactures them to the highest standards and takes the time to write personal notes included with each purchase. And during the COVID-19 pandemic, he has continued to offer stellar customer service, serving as manufacturer, packer, shipper and everything in between. And we have yet to find a flavor we didn't care for. With each order, we've branched out trying different flavors that you would NEVER find on any grocery or specialty store shelf. Our only problem of late is finding a way to store and display all of our options in our tiny kitchen. And I've started to think about other things I can flavor in addition to water -- simply because they taste so good.
I cannot say enough great things about the company or the flavors. We only hope the flavor offerings continue to expand.
Cranberry, Lime and Regular Cherry (red ripe cherry) would be amazing additions to an already delicious lineup.
Love these flavors! We use the blueberry for an exact replica to the Dunkin Donuts blueberry coffee.
I'm about to tell you how to get the closest thing you can get to dunkin donuts blueberry coffee.
OK. so I have spent well over $200 on trying to duplicate dunkin donuts blueberry iced coffee...I've tried all the different syrups and extracts and bought every blueberry flavored coffee out there... I've even tried bribing the people at Dunkin to sell me the blueberry flavor (kinda kidding).
What I found out is that they use a sugar free,unsweetened blueberry flavor and use caramel swirl to get the amazing sweet flavor.
Sooo. I discovered this Blueberry essence and was going to give it my final attempt because I was tired of wasting money..and boy am I glad I did.
First..its important that you buy Eight O'clock coffee, Florida berry shortcake coffee. Its in the pink and black bag. Trust me...this is the only coffee flavor that works. (I've tried their Blueberry.but it's not as good and strong flavor as the berry shortcake)
I prefer cold coffee... so I do one heaping scoop for every 2 cups in my coffee machine. I usually make a large batch at a time so I make 12 cups and add 6 large, heaping scoops of the berry coffee.
Once it's brewed, prepare your coffee like normal. Add however much plain creamer you prefer. (I use half and half) then. add in however much sugar you like ..(I use turbinado and coconut sugar because it gives a caramelly flavor in my opinion)..but any sweetener will work.
And finally... Open up the blueberry essence and shake it in. It depends how strong you like it. Start out with 2 or 3 drops per cup and then work your way up until its how you like it. I like really strong blueberry flavor..so I add at least 10 drops per every 16 ounce coffee.
I really hope this helps and ENJOY
I love Flavor Essence! These flavorings are an awesome way to infuse flavor without the added sugar or artificial sweetener. I’ve been using these for over a year in order to control the sugar content in my coffee, tea, smoothies, etc. , and I keep coming back. I would like to see lime, pecan and/or butter toffee flavors added. Thanks Mick for truly wonderful products!
Flavor Essence is just brilliant. Wonderful product, wonderful company! I’m ordering 10 this time around. I love the flavors, especially banana.
I totally love this stuff! I can’t get enough of it. I also LOVE the fact that I’m still shopping local. NH is wicked cool. 😎👍🏻👍🏻
Amazing natural flavors. Just placed my second order, keep up the great flavors!
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.
I use the Blueberry in iced tea and it’s great. It has no after taste like what you get in restaurants. Can’t wait to try more flavors.
