The other great use is in fruit smoothies.

It used to be pure date molasses, but is now diluted and they've added sugar to it to make up for it.

The label on-line clearly shows the ingredients as being strictly dates.

The label on-line clearly shows the ingredients as being strictly dates. But the syrup arrived and the label is completely different. The item includes SUGAR!! Hello!?! What is the point of that? Date syrup is supposed to be an alternative to sugar. I think it is ridiculous Amazon lets this happen. And because it is a grocery item I cannot return it. What a waste.

According to Amazon's product description (as of 10/12/2011) this molasses has only one ingredient: dates. However, according to the label it is made from "concentrated date juice, sugar, water, citric acid" (see also the picture of the label with the ingredients that I uploaded). I did not want to buy a sugar sirup with some concentrated date juice in it, I wanted to buy a natural product made 100 % from dates. I will return this product.
PS: Once again I can only praise Amazon. The product is not returnable through the online system. But when I called and explained the situation I got immediately offered a refund. I love to buy from Amazon!

I ordered this product a year ago, and it was PURE DATES, just as described on the Amazon page. But recently ordered again, it arrived and has all kinds of other ingredients in it! It does NOT taste the same at all. Very disappointing! I hope Amazon can find a supplier that offers date molasses with ONLY dates in it.

I was so excited to receive my order, considering the rave reviews. And I was so sad to read the labels on my jars -- which stated the ingredients as Concentrated Date Juice, Sugar, Water, Citric Acid." The web photo of the label says only "DATE." Apparently, the maker is sending Amazon a different product to substitute for the "pure natural" all-date one. This substitute is just a syrup. Other reviewers seem to love it, but I wanted pure date molasses. UPDATE: Since the customers who got lucky and got the all-date product loved it, I tried again. Sadly, this time, the "date molasses" didn't even taste like dates; compared to my first order, this batch looked light in color, had a more watered-down consistency, tasted to me like HFCS mixed with honey, and tasted to another person like pancake syrup. I wish the manufacturer would make a pure date molasses. They make a carob molasses, but I'm afraid to try it based on this experience.

This can be substituted for regular molasses in any recipe. It is also excellent for sauces and syrups.

I ordered natural date molasses, and this is what was clearly stated in the details, including a photo of the label, in which the only ingredient was dates.

What I got includes the following ingredients: Concentrated date juice, sugar, water, citric acid.

This is NOT date molasses - this is a FRAUD. Beware of this vendor and don't buy this junk!!!

One good word on Amazon: I called to complain, because it's impossible to return this item. The customer service lady heard what I told her, and immediately told me I would get a full refund. I have a feeling they are already accustomed to having issues with this vendor...

Date Molasses is an awesome substitute for processed sugar in lots of recipes. According to the label, the only thing in the jar is dates! Regardless, I love using this product in my kitchen and was very disappointed when it was unavailable for a certain time (and I was out!). I am very happy to see that it is available again. And as I continue to use it, I will continue to replace my stock. It has become one of my kitchen essentials!
