I've been obsessed with LorAnn flavorings for a while now. I've used them to flavor Twinkies for edible crafts (twice), make scratch-n-sniff drawings, flavor chocolates, glaze rolls, make minty milk, and make my own flavored sanding sugar for decorating cupcakes, just to name a few. My most frequent use it to add a drop or two to flavor water. Sometimes I add sugar if I want a sweet drink. Sometimes I add citric acid for a bit of sour. I now buy citric acid in bulk, as it is surprisingly versatile (affiliate link here and below).
My mom gave me a fun variety pack of LorAnn flavorings and I've had the chance to use (and in some cases, use up) all of the flavors. Some were fantastic. My very favorites are Blackberry, Lemon, and Raspberry. I also love Cinnamon, Cranberry, Key Lime, Orange Cream, Pear, Pineapple, Pomegranate, and Tangerine. Some were fine, just not my favorites. These include: Blueberry, Cherry, Mango, Peach, Pina Colada, and Strawberry Kiwi. I'm not a fan of Grape, Green Apple, Red Licorice, or Tropical Punch.
With most of my favorites gone or nearly so, I decided to order some new flavors. It's really handy to get exactly what you want with this 18-pack You Choose.
I replaced my favorite flavors, then chose 14 new-to-me flavors to try. These include: Bubble Gum, Cinnamon Roll, Cran-Raspberry, English Toffee, Fruit Punch, Lemonade, Lime, Maple, Orange, Pralines & Cream, Root Beer, Strawberry, Tutti-Frutti, and Wintergreen. I'm eager to give them a go. Unfortunately, we're in the middle of a kitchen remodel, which means no cooking or edible crafts for me for awhile. I'm so eager to get a functioning kitchen back!
If you have a kitchen and are interested in trying out LorAnn flavorings, you can see a full list of the 100+ flavors here. I'll probably try them all eventually, even though there are some I know I will hate (I'm looking at you, Banana Cream and Watermelon). If you do buy flavorings, I highly recommend purchasing a set of disposable pipettes or silicone droppers as well.
I have a couple of fun ideas for using my new flavorings, so as soon as I have a kitchen, I'll share the results of my experimentations with you!
