Vitacost Coconut Sugar - Non-GMO -- 16 oz (454 g)
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.

Made a batch of cookies with and they turned out so much better than when I made them using regular sugar. Used with some Tazo tea, and it just had this grand taste! I now keep this sugar next to my coffee maker and tea jar, so I can use instead of regular sugar. I only with this came in a easy pour containter. But great product.

The right sugar for me!
Love this stuff! It has only 15 calories per tsp and the fact that it has a low glycemic index is very important for me. Thanks VitaCost!
