Sirops

Monin syrups (since the 1920s) in a café window rue des deux portes (two gates street). Seen here are green banana, hazelnut, pink grapefruit, chestnut, caramel and kiwi. My personal favourites are violet and... bubble gum!
Vitrine d'un café rue des deux portes. Mes préférés parmi les sirops Monin sont la violette et... le bubble gum. Et vous ?

I'm not sure about green banana, but hazelnut and caramel sound wonderful. I had to smile about the bubble gum flavour! ;~)

I like my banana's on the green side, so I might be inclined to try that one. I think bubble gum sounds pretty good too.

Neat idea for a photo!

Randy said...

The best in my opinion. I love the banana flavor.

il faut bien avouer que je ne suis pas trop sirop !!

Dave said...

France has a huge selection of sirops, far more than we have in the UK, I wonder if it's the warmer climate ?

Pretty display and yummy flavors. I'm curious about the violet flavor. How does one use it?

Honest Abe said...

What is it? Flavoring?

Halcyon said...

Hmmm... I wouldn't have pegged you as a bubblegum type! :)
Happy weekend.

Lowell said...

Bubblegum? What do you use the syrups for ... crepes?

JM said...

Syrups are used in cocktails, added to water or to lemonade (what we call lemonade, i.e. 7up)...

Andrew said...

A wonderful image... the drinks are on you. xx

Jack said...

They make for an attractive and colorful grouping, but I don't think I would like to drink any of them.

Regina K said...

I love the grouping of this photo. This syrup sounds yummy, but what do you do with the bubble gum syrup?

PerthDailyPhoto said...

They look fantastic all in a row like that Ciel, I think I might try the pink grapefruit!

cieldequimper said...

@ Regina: see above!

Kaori said...

I saw the exact same syrups at a pizza parlor here in Shinjuku! But I don't think they had bubble gum...will have to ask after that ;D

Stephanie said...

Woah! Bubble gum? That's new to me! I once had a chocolate brownie martini and it was delicious, though I'm more of a wine and beer kind of gal :)

Gunn said...

I have tried the Caramel..... but I can see that there are other types also interesting....
Nice image!
