Finding the Best Coffee Syrup Variety Pack: Our Tests . . . And A Recipe

Let’s talk coffee syrup.

As coffee syrup enthusiasts, we know the only thing better than coffee syrup is a variety pack of coffee syrup. These packs make a great gift  . . . or are just a fun way to try new flavors.

To test coffee syrups, we did a blind taste test. We took the syrups and put them in generic bottles. That way our testers would not be influenced by brands or fancy bottles.

We also asked our parent readers for their favor coffee syrups. We used these suggestions to come up with the initial brands we tested for this article. (If you’re looking for another gift idea, out pumpkin spice syrup recommendations are a popular option.)

Before we get to the winner, here’s a recipe for one of our favorite coffee drinks: iced Irish cream cappuccino! Enjoy.

Sweetened with cane sugar

Best Sugar-Free

Easy on the wallet
We love this set for its overall flavor—the salted caramel was a favorite, but the butter toffee was a close second. Caveat: sweetened with sucralose.

How We Pick Products To Recommend

We often turn to our readers (3 million strong!) to find products to recommend. We ask our parent readers for their favorites and consider their real-world experiences in our recommendations.

When we test a product, we always purchase it with our own monies. We do not take free samples, as we believe that compromises our independence.

We also fact check manufacturer information with our own measurements. If a maker claims a product weighs X pounds, we will weigh it to make sure. If the battery life is supposed to be six hours, we will see how it stands up in the real world.

In some cases, we will do interviews with experts in the field to get additional feedback on products.

To get hands-on time with products, we regularly meet one-on-one with gear companies and even tour manufacturing facilities. (When we do this, we pay our own travel expenses).

Why Trust Us

We’ve been rating and reviewing products for the home and families since 1994. We do extensive research, evaluating products with an eye toward quality, ease of use and affordability.

We make our living from affiliate commissions, but we always recommend what we think are the best bets for our readers (not the ones that are the most expensive). We are always looking for products that offer the best bang for the buck.

Our independence is a key reason why we have been doing this so long. As we mentioned above, when we purchase a product for hands-on testing, we do so with our own money.

Here’s another key point: we don’t take money from the brands we review. No free samples, no sponsors, no “partnerships.” Our work is 100% reader-supported!
