Jordan’s Skinny Syrups – Sugar Free Mocha Syrup Review

Before I tell you what I think about Jordan’s Skinny Syrups, specifically the Sugar-Free Mocha Syrup, I need to tell you a little about myself because that knowledge will help you to decide if this coffee syrup might be right for you.

First of all, I LOVE chocolate and I eat and/or drink some every day. Dark chocolate is my favorite and I usually stick with 85% dark. I also love coffee and drink it every day, usually with some form of chocolate added. Rarely do I drink sweetened coffee but when I do, I like it creamy and chocolaty.

I usually think that coffee shop coffee is too bitter and that’s why most people feel the need to add a bunch of stuff to it before they can drink it. Nevertheless, I enjoy an occasional mocha latte with half the syrup made with whole milk. I also like to indulge in an occasional Mocha Frappuccino or Frappe, depending upon where I go.

Now, for my review.

I purchased Jordan’s Skinny Syrups/Sugar-free Mocha and Jordan’s Skinny Syrups – Cream Whipped Foam Topping. Both have 0 calories and 0 sugar.

On the syrup label, it says:

“Enjoy your favorite coffee drinks without the guilt. Life’s too short to sacrifice all the fun. XOXO Jordan”

Skip the guilt and add to your favorite:

  • Coffees
  • Lattes
  • Mochas
  • Cappuccinos
  • Smoothies
  • Dessert Drinks

Chocolate Fudge Mocha

In a serving cup, stir to combine 1 tbsp. Mocha Skinny Syrup, 1 1/2 tbsp. dark chocolate sauce, 1 shot espresso. Steam 6 oz. milk in pitcher. Pour steamed milk into serving cup, stirring gently. For the perfect finish, top with a few pumps of Mocha Skinny Syrups Whipped Foam Topping.

The Whipped Foam Topping – Cream label says this.

How to Use

  1. Brew your favorite coffee or hot beverage.
  2. Pump as much as you please into your beverage.
  3. Enjoy a barista style beverage without the fuss.

Okay, I admit it. I didn’t follow the recipe.

Instead, I did this

Brewed decaf coffee into a mug, added some Mocha Skinny Syrup and topped with Whipped Foam Topping.

Here’s what I thought

It was yucky.

It was too sweet.

It didn’t taste at all like chocolate.

I took it with me to my computer and began to work on a project and by the time I remembered it was there, it was too cold to drink so I poured it down the sink. (By the way, I drink my favorite coffee cold all the time.)

In comparison, when I sat down to write this post I brought along a cup of decaf coffee with cocoa powder and cream in it. It got cold and I drank it anyway.

So, I tried again.

I do not have an espresso machine but I can make a good cup of coffee that rivals any coffee shop I have ever been to.

Here’s what I did.

Steamed six ounces of milk and added instant coffee, 1 1/2 tbsp. chocolate syrup, 1/2 tbsp. of Jordan’s Skinny Mocha Syrup, and a few pumps of Jordan’s Skinny Whipped Foam Topping.

It was much better!

This time it was creamier and I could taste the chocolate. (Duh.) Even though I only used half of the recommended amount of Jordan’s Skinny Mocha Syrup, it was still too sweet for me. I added an additional six ounces of coffee and it was drinkable but still far too sweet.

My Conclusion

It seems silly to me to purchase sugar-free products and then add them to a sugar-laden beverage. Yes, I know. There is sugar-free chocolate sauce/syrup available. You can buy it if you like and you can use skim milk if it makes you happy. I’ll stick with my favorite calorie-free Chocolate Flavored Coffee which is decadent hot or cold without any milk or sweetener added.

If I want something creamy, chocolaty and sweet, I can add chocolate syrup and warm milk to my coffee and top it with real whipped cream. Better yet, I’ll brew my favorite Chocolate Flavored Coffee and add a dollop of premium vanilla ice cream and maybe a drop of peppermint oil.

I have found that if I want a treat, it is better to go with real, wholesome ingredients instead of chemical-laden wannabes. Real food is satisfying and when I thoroughly enjoy something, I don’t feel the need to keep repeating it.

How about you? How do you like your coffee? Have you tried Jordan’s Skinny Syrups? If you have a comment or an opinion, please share it below.

  1. Hi thanks for the review on Jordan’s Skinny Syrups – they say it is sugar free, is that the same as the ‘zero sugar coke’? I clicked to Amazon but did not find what they use as the alternative sweetener.
    I would love to know also if Jordan’s Skinny Syrups is good for cocktail beverages or cold desserts.

    1. I am not familiar with ‘zero sugar coke’ but here are the ingredients.
      Water, Caramel Color, Lactic Acid, Natural and Artificial Flavor, Sucralose, Cellulose Gum, Propylene Glycol, Acesulfame Potassium, Sodium Benzoate and Potassium Sorbate (Preservatives).
      I think you could use it in anything that will accept liquid.

  2. I like the Jordan Skinny Syrups. Great in oatmeal and coffee and any thing else you want to taste sweet without the calories and the lies. There is sugar and then there is Skinny Syrup. And of course other stuff that claims to be like Skinny Syrup. Thank You Mr. Jordan

    1. I love the idea of using the Jordan’s Skinny Syrups in oatmeal; I’m sure I would enjoy that much more. Most of the time, I am content with black, unsweetened coffee and because of that may be overly choosy about what I put in it. Thank you for sharing.
