NOW Real Food Date Sugar is 100% pure and is an excellent sprinkle for fresh fruits, yogurt, cereals and more. Many contemporary whole-grain and homemade bread recipes call for date sugar instead of brown sugar since it lends a unique flavor sweetness that pair well with whole grains.

I love dates, but not this date sugar. Tastes like dates, but not in a good way if that makes sense. I much prefer coconut sugar! Will not repurchase.
Strange, almost awful (for me!) taste .... wouldn't recommend it to anyone ... nor would I use it further. I left it somewhere outside, maybe someone needs it. For me, it's far away from the sugar taste, and what is een worse - it always leaves "traces" in the drink, which are much like waste...
Great for cooking and baking, desserts and puddings.

If you're trying to use it like sugar in you beverage then you won't like it. This specific sugar is made from dates and tastes like powdered dates but some sweetness, that coconut sugar has, however it is wonderful if you are using it for baking cookies, a tart or making a pudding. Far healthier than sugar it makes great candy bars or nut bars mixed with other ingredients like coconut and raisins. It is delicious in pie crusts, or baked apples. Nice as a topping over a dessert, tart, or pudding as well, I like it because it is alkaline and will not ferment in my body like sugar.
Nice substitute for sugar

I use it in cooking instead of sugar and it works well for me. This way I get the fibers and all the other good staff which comes from dates instead of empty calories from processed sugar.

This is an excellent substitute for other sweeteners when baking. I usually use honey, but date sugar is perfect when honey isn't an ideal substitute. I no longer buy most NOW foods products because of what I learned about QAI, the group that certifies their products as organic. Since no one says this date sugar is organic, I don't mind buying it from them.

Great for cookies and energy bars.
Healthy but not really sugar

It is not really sweet enough to be used as a sweetener. I appreciate the fact that it's 100% dates and will use the package, however I probably will not reorder. I would use fresh dates instead.
