Nice Substitute for Brown Sugar
I find this product to be a wonderful substitute for brown sugar and it has a low glycemic index. It does seem to have a hint of caramel which makes it even tastier! We use it on baked sweet potatoes with a little cinnamon mixed in, on oatmeal and in cookie recipes that call for brown sugar. I have found the Vitacost brand to taste just as good as the name brand and the price is much better.

different taste than regular sugar, but good
I didn't quite expect coconut sugar to have such a specific taste. It's almost like a brown sugar but instead of a molasses flavor, it just has a smokiness to it.. kind of reminds me of a dark maple syrup with less intense sweetness.
With certain baked goods, it would be hard to replace this with regular sugar simply because the coconut sugar has a strong taste to it (eg. in something light like a vanilla cake, shortbread, sugar cookie..) However, I love substituting it for things like pumpkin bread and carrot cake. It's also nice with chai and black teas.

great sub for sugar or fake sugar
tastes great and is healthier than anything else I can buy other than honey. Honey would tie with coconut sugar.
