Soda Syrup without High Fructose Corn Syrup or artificial sweeteners

I just purchased a carbonater from the SodaClub. Suffice to say that it does what its supposed to do and we're thrilled with it for seltzer. The company also sells soda syrup, but we're not so fond of them. All of the non-diet flavors say that they have "sugar and/or high fructose corn syrup" as well as "sweeteners including aspartame and sucralose." Now, if I remember correctly, sucralose is Splenda.

Well, both my better half and I try to avoid HFCS and Artifical Sweeteners. So, my question is: does anyone know of a source (I'm in the Bay Area, or online is fine) where I can get HFCS/Artificial sweetener free soda syrups to add to carbonated water?

Thanks in advance.

  1. Check out A.G. Ferrari. Several Bay Area stores, My favorite is the lemon syrup.


      No sweetener of any kind so you can choose for yourself. I don't care for HFCS or artificial sweeteners, so I may use WheyLow or agave nectar or or or...

        Thanks for the suggestions! I ordered some of the Prarie Moon products and I'll let you know how they work for me. As soon as I get over the Castro I'm definitely going to get some of the A.G. Ferrari syrups, too. I appreciate the tips!

          If you buy some AG Ferrari syrups, please report your experience.

      2. Da Vinci Gourmet Syrups are made with all natural ingredients and pure cane sugar. I usually use the sugar free, but they are all delicious.
