Not the real Monin Rose Syrup
Reviewed in the United States on June 26, 2019
I make desserts and wedding cake and been using this brand for the longest time. I usually purchase the Monin rose syrup from my gourmet food importer but I ran out and had to buy immediately but there is a 1 week lead time so I turned to Amazon. It arrived fast but I noticed the syrup is not clear like it normally is. The one I normally use has a very fresh natural rose scent, taste like the rose too. This one has a very faint scent and somewhat artificial and tastes syrupy. I almost thought it was watermelon. I thought maybe they have changed the recipe then I received my order from the importer this week, it is just how I remember it, sweet floral note. I think this one on Amazon is counterfeit. I have included a picture of the 2 for comparison: left from importer (clear liquid) and right from Amazon (opaque and thick). Buy from another source.
