Where to buy Hazelnut Syrup?

Postby Girl_Next_Door » Wed, 19 Aug 2009 1:13 pm

Anyone knows? The same kind used to favor coffee, hot chocolate or milk. Starbucks uses them, but they don't sell it in the Starbucks in Singapore. I have been checking out all the foreign supermarket, from Market Place, Cold Storage to 360 in Ion, but none of them seems to sell individual bottles.

If you know, please do tell!

Hmmm.... strange. You could probably fashion your own from hazelnut flavoring (check Phoon Huat) and simple syrup (sugar water) for a start. Will keep my eyes out. Does Coffee Bean sell it?

Check out Pacific Coffee. Bought some syrup there before. I just can't remember if there was hazelnut though.

I have no Idea if they have that (did not look for it) but why don't you check out the new place inside ION.

It is called "vom Fass" (from the Barrel) and has many exotic liquid items.
4th floor besides the mini supermarket.
PROUT....the only way out !

yes, they are open now.
I have purchased some items there.

They may not have what you are looking for.

But I like their concept.
Right from a small barrel they fill whatever you like to buy into bottles of your chosen size.
PROUT....the only way out !

I love vom Fass - I bought some Apple Balsam vinegar I'm practically drinking out of the bottle it's so delicious! Weird location though... I only found it b/c I wanted to check out the stationary store right next to it.

Ahaa... someone else who knows what is good :P

I bought the same item.
Besides drinking it pure, its delicious on Mozzarella with pesto & tomatoes.

In the long run its actually not such a weird location considering there is that small supermarket beside it.

Convenient to do your shopping whenever you want to be good to yourself :wink:

"Three-Sixty" a high end Cold-Storage store is to the left of the Stationary store and to the left of "vom Fass" and to the left of "Sins" and then one more shop to the left and then you are there :???:

no, its actually all on the 4th floor if I'm not wrong.

I knew there was a new supermarket - I just assumed it would be in the basement like the rest of them in Singapore... will have to check it out. Thx!
