Capella Giveaway


Big News! I just started a Facebook page for the Diner, so join me there too. It would be a quick and easy way for you to share what you are serving at your Diner!

To kick it off right, I am having my first giveaway! When I was placing an order with Capella Flavorings, I told them about my blog, and how many times I talked about their products, I asked them for some product to share with you. Well, they sent me some. Even though I really want to keep them for myself, I am sticking to my promises. They sent me some of their water flavorings. That wild cherry is calling my name, but I will stick to the blueberry pomegranite that I ordered. It is good too, as is the orange mango. Depending on how much you use, they add just a touch of flavor to your water bottle. Unlike pre-packaged flavored waters, you get to adjust the flavor to your tastes. You can add more plus a little sweetener and you have a great drink. Once I am no longer snowed in, I will use these with my Soda Stream too. We ran out of carbonation and can't get to the store because of all this snow!

Capella offers more than water flavorings too. I love love love their flavorings for coffee and desserts. My favorites from this order are French Toast and Cinnamon Danish Swirl. These make a cup of coffee a real treat. Because I can flavor one cup at time, I can have two or three flavors from the one pot of coffee. Or everyone in the family can have a different taste.

Yogurt is another terrific use. My favorite for that is Boston Cream Pie! I make my own yogurt in big batches, then add the flavorings and sweetener to individual servings. How do these flavors sound? Pralines and Cream, Chocolate Glazed Doughnut, Graham Cracker, Banana Split, Peaches and Cream. I also think this would make a good protein shake. I miss real bananas and peaches sometimes, as they are high in carbs. Another flavor that gets a rave review is the New York Cheesecake. Super yummy in yogurt and smoothies.


This time, I took advantage of a special and got a five pack of sampler sized bottles, The bottles are small, but they last a while. The flavors I chose for this special are Cappuccino, Coconut, Chocolate Fudge Brownie, Vanilla Custard and the two I mentioned earlier--French Toast and Cinnamon Danish Swirl. Any of those would be good as yogurt or whipped cream flavoring. Six mini bottles, with your choice of a limited offering, are just $14.95.

When I am making hot drinks, I like to heat sugar free apple flavored drink mix and add the EggNog or Pumpkin Pie Spice flavor. It tastes like a mulled cider--but no carbs. Cranberry drink is delicious too, like a hot punch. Hot tea could be flavored with the fruit flavors or the mint. I even add a drop of Strawberries and Cream to my strawberry slushes.

Flavor drops could be used to flavor gelatin desserts and low carb puddings. Egg custards would be marvelous. You could even add some drops to flavor a plain flax muffin or a minute muffin. Of course, these drops are great to add variety to a standard vanilla protein shake.

These little bottles are convenient to carry along in a purse or briefcase---small enough to fit in a desk draw or glove box too.

Have I convinced you that they are good? If you would like to try one, go here. If you want to win one from me, you have several chances.

I think NY Cheesecake could be amazing in plain yogurt. Like you, I add splenda to plain Green yogurt for a snack. I'm glad I found you. I am a diabetic and new to low carb life. But I am learning. Look forward to seeing what you post!

GiGi said...

What are your favorite flavors of this stuff? I ADORE:
- Chocolate Donut
- Chocolate Mint
- Vanilla Custard
- Vanilla Ice Cream
- Irish Cream

I wish they were a little cheaper but at least they do last a long time.

Do you know what cheesecake tastes like? or strawberry?

My favorites right now are Boston cream pie,cinnamon danish and french toast. I like the cheesecake but it doesn't seem as strong. I have strawberries and cream, and it is ok, as is my chocolate flavor. I tend not to care for fake chocolate, though. If you are a big vanilla fan, I bet you would like the Boston Cream Pie.
