if you like coconut....
Then you will love this product. There is a nice hint of scent, not too much in the flavor. The granules are really tiny and variations of brown from the sap. I really like this product and cannot find coconut sap sugar any where else at this time. If you have glycemic issues with sugar products the coconut sugar is supposed to have less of a glycemic index than honey...and it tastes great too.

This Coconut Sugar is a Sweet Deal!
A friend told me she'd switched to coconut sugar to use in her tea. She gave me some to try & I was instantly hooked. The taste is wonderful. I use it in tea & also when baking. Best of all, this product DOES NOT contain any GMO ingredients! Coconut Sugar is a much healthier alternative to processed sugar. Great product at a great price. Thanks Swanson!

Sugar is Great, However:
The sugar has a wonderful flavor. It is great with Cafix (also sold by Swanson). What bothered me is that Swanson sent me sugar that expired in the same year, just a few months from now. (Usually everything I've ordered has *at least* a 1 year expiration date.)
Thus, I have rushed to use it, although I often do not use a lot of sugar.

Glad I tried it.
This is a great substitute for regular sugar. I really enjoy it and have bought it 2x.

To me, it smells like graham crackers that you have made into a pie crust.. I have to admit that when I first tasted it I thought it was not sweet enough by itself, but when I made banana nut bread, it was plenty sweet.

Great value and a great taste. I'm very pleased!

Great unrefined sugar product
I love using this coconut sugar in all my cooking and baking. I use it as a one-to-one sub for white sugar.
The coconut sugar is brown and can work beautifully as a replacement for brown sugar too. Sometimes I will add a touch of honey, maple syrup, or molasses to add a deeper flavor.
I highly recommend all of Nutiva's products.

A first time user, and what a flavor. I now use your coconut sugar in place of other sugars in all my recipes, backing and cooking. Makes great pies and improves my morning coffee. Thank you Nutiva.

This coconut sugar has exceeded my expectations as to whether it would taste good. I stay away from white sugar and wanted something in a lower glycemic index to cook with, so I purchased this coconut sugar and it tasted very good and use it for all of y baking needs

healthy alternative to sugar
I really like the coconut sugar, and had never tried it until I read the reviews about it here. I had read about it being so much better for you that regular sugar, but I hadn't tried it until I saw the great price on here. I have always been sensitive to sugar, and this seems to not affect me at all. I like to add a little in my smoothies sometimes when they are a little bland, and just a spoonful makes them taste better. I used it today in some butternut squash soup instead of the brown sugar the recipe called for, and it was a wonderful addition. The only thing I don't like about this is the packaging...wish it was in a better container as the zipper part of the plastic bag has ot worked on the past two bags.

Hint of Sweetness
I tried this on my high fiber organic granola cereal for breakfast and it gave just a light hint of sweetness that I like. I don't want to be overwhelmed with a sugary taste that early in the morning. I was very pleased and will definitely continue purchasing this fine product.

another product rather new to me, but it's the best value as far as price. The sugar is not really refined, like some other brands, but it tastes, and acts just like the finer grains of the other brands.

Best of the Bunch
Excellent taste, quality, price.

I use this instead of white sugar. it's great in coffee or in cooking and I don't feel like I'm putting something into my body that is bad for me.

Saw advertised on Dr. Oz, been using it for a while when sweetening a recipe. Better price than at grocery store.

Excellent Alternative to Regular Sugar
Low glycemic, full or nutrients and it tastes great. I use it baking and to sweeten other desserts and drinks. It works great!

I tried this because I was curious what coconut sugar would be like. Definitely has a flavor of it's own. You wouldn't notice the flavor baked in something. I used it sprinkled on plain yogurt with berries and it was good, just different.

Great sugar alternative
Flavor with lower glycemic index.

Sugar for your sweet tooth!
I like this sugar-but it is too expensive for my taste.
I like to bake & since it comes in 1 lb. pkgs.-it can take a lot. I like it in my coffee-but there are some things (like lemonade) I cannot put it in.
May 29, 2013
I've never used coconut sugar before, so I can't compare to any other brands, but I am very pleased with this product! It was recommended by a friend, and I couldn't be more grateful to her! As always, great savings w/ Swanson, too!

I'll buy again!
This was my first time using coconut sugar and I like it! I replaced it in several recipes with perfect sucess! Even when I made whipped cream, the consistancy and taste was great--no difference besides being a cream/light tan color vs. white. It does tend to clump up I noticed, but maybe my container didn't seal the best and it easily broke apart.
It doesn't smell sweet, but it is! Only downside is the price, but Swanson's is competetive. Coconut sugar is just more expensive.

Totally love it!
This is just as good as the more pricey coconut sugars that I have tried. It has the taste and texture more of a light brown sugar. We use it in place of all other sugars. It works great for cooking and baking as well as sweetening ssmoothys aand anything else you want sweetened!

Fresh, delicious taste!
We've tried 2 or 3 other brands. We like this one the best. It seemed to sweeten our teas with less amount. It tasted fresher than the others.
