Tis’ the season for sugar-free treats

It would be rare to find a customer who doesn’t have fond memories of gingerbread, whether it’s decorating gingerbread men as a child or building gingerbread houses. The familiar taste brings a touch of nostalgia and has a comforting aroma that is the embodiment of the festive period.

So it’s no surprise that as the fourth biggest selling syrup gingerbread flavoured drinks featured on all high street winter menus last year. But with a portion of customers seeking a healthier option it is important to offer a lower calorie alternative to their favourite drinks.

That’s why Sweetbird has expanded his current Sugar-free range and created a Gingerbread addition. Joining Sugar-free Hazelnut, Vanilla and Caramel, the delicious new option will have the same yummy taste as Sweetbird original Gingerbread Syrup but with absolutely no sugar. Made with natural ginger and cinnamon flavours, it’s also free from artificial colours and high fructose corn syrup.

At only 92 calories for a 12oz latte made with skimmed milk, this wonderful syrup allows all your customers to enjoy their drink of choice without having to worry about sugar content.SB018-SB-SF-Gingerbread-Syrup-bottle-+-drink-2
