While no one would mistake this for the real thing, it's still pretty darn good and (in my opinion) it's way better than the WF chocolate dip. Zero calories, zero carbs, zero fat, it's a guilt-free way to get that chocolate hit. I use it mostly to boost the chocolate flavour when I make shakes with the protein drinks.

I like it very much drizzled on strawberries.  It psychologically quelled my chocolate urges on strict.  I definitely did NOT like the chocolate dip and actually ended up throwing it out after tasting it.

To me, this stuff is indistinguishable from Hershey's brand chocolate flavored syrup once it is added to milk, protein shakes, etc.  It's great in coffee too.  My wife likes to put it on her sugar free Jello, which sounds odd, but is actually pretty good.

I like this syrup a lot.  My regular "treat" is a dr. b protein shake, 1/2 cup of decaf coffee, and 1 tbsp of the syrup mixed together and poured over a glass of ice.  DELISH!

I found this flavor really different initially to the choc syrup taste I know and love, but I got used to it very quick.  I think it's a great substitute.  Usually I have it with strawberries or just as a spoon on it's own if i'm having a choc craving day (TOM!)

It's definitely and acquired taste.  Taking a little lick of it was good but after that, not so much.  It has a real distinct not-so-good taste.

Maybe I just need to get used to it.

Some ideas to use the syrup

Hot chocolate (this uses up all your garnishes so beware)!
1 cup of boiled water
2 tbsp of chocolate syrup
1 tsp of milk or whitener

Dip strawberries

Use as syrup over cinnamon french toast.

Of course it doesnt taste like the real chocolate but it's still pretty good. Yesterday, I melted my Peanut Crisp'N Crunch bar in the microwave for 15 seconds and I added some of the syrup on it... mmmmmmm!!!
