I ordered this date sugar because I had a recipe for GAPS-legal brownies that called for 2 3/4 c. date sugar. The first time I made the recipe I bought dates and put them in my food processor--I didn't realize you're supposed to dry them in the dehydrator first! So I ended up with a huge sticky ball of very sticky date "sugar" that I used. Some portions of the date got stuck in the sticky, sticky ball of stickiness without totally being blended so I got little chunks of date in my brownies. I had trouble blending the sticky date ball with the butter and cocoa, and it was tough to mix into the rest of the recipe. It wasn't the end of the world, and the brownies were good, but the texture was a little off.

SO, I ordered this date sugar and I've made the brownies again. Holy smokes, it was so much easier! Instead of buying this date sugar, you COULD buy a bunch of dates, dry them out in a dehydrator, and put them in a food processor. I won't do that again though, because that takes a bunch of time, and it cost me more to use dates from the store than it cost to buy this already turned into date sugar.

The texture of this date sugar is uniform enough that it works well in recipes, but the color and size of the granules varies enough that you know it comes from real food instead of being some sort of chemical product. The date sugar is quite sweet, and very easy to work with.

I will definitely continue to buy this date sugar.

I love this date sugar! Not sticky at all, quite tasty and works perfectly in baking. Date sugar doesn't dissolve in liquids, however, so it's not for use in drinks or recipes that require melted sugar. Great stuff!

**Used mostly in paste form for baking or hot foods. I have not had success using as sugar yet, but I'll update review if I find other uses**

This sugar does not dissolve by itself, but when you make a paste out of it, it does dissolve. The sugar is very "crystal-ly" and not finely ground. I first grind it up in a high performance blender (VitaMix, BlendTec etc) to make into a powder. I pour it back in the bag for easier handling...[[Can be smoky like dry ice]]...I add 1 cup of water to the blender then pour in some date sugar and blend until smooth. Continue adding water (eyeball amount) and add the rest of the sugar package. Once blended correctly, it resembles chocolate frosting. If it does not, blend it longer. Or if you added a lot of water it can look like a syrup. [[Some people add vanilla and lemon juice too. And most people just add the sugar without grinding it up first]].

I love the date paste in baked goods and in oatmeal. It bakes perfectly without compromising texture and it stirs into hot oatmeal without a trace. For some baked goods, you need a little experimentation. You can either omit some liquid or add more dry ingredients. If you don't want adjustments, you can change the temperature and cooking time. Practice in small batches because not all recipes require adjustments...I don't really like the flavor in smoothies, yogurt or tea (sugar or paste form). And the sugar (as-is or powdered) does not work for cereal. It does sweeten, but the as-is sugar never dissolves and sinks to the bottom while the powdered sugar becomes clumpy and never dissolves. But the date paste is perfect for anything that would normally have brown sugar or caramel flavoring in it. It does not substitute for granulated sugar. It is sweet, but it has a different flavor than sugar.

I'm completely new to date sugar so this is more of a review of the sugar and not the brand. We buy quite a bit of products from NOW foods and are always impressed. For the past few months we've bee using coconut sugar and I've always been impressed with the results in baked goods. I would sub it one for one in my recipes and while it would change the color of the final product the taste and texture were great. I did the same thing with date sugar in a brownie and cookie recipe. Both turned out very bland and gummy. The final result was not at all sweet. I realize this isn't an actual usage, but just chopped dried dates but I was really hoping for something slightly sweeter. For me, the hardest part was the texture of the cookies and brownies. Very dry and gummy. I'm going to continue to try new recipes and hopefully find a few tailored specifically to date sugar. In the meantime I think I'll use half coconut sugar and half date sugar in my recipes. All of these issues could simply be my lack of familiarity with the sugar, so if you're already a fan I'd definitely recommend the brand. The sugar is uniform in color and texture and the packaging is well done. Amazon definitely has the best price compared to the one location in my area that I can actually find it.

I use this on my oatmeal and other cereals. Do not confuse this with Palm sugar, they are two different things. Date sugar consists of finely ground dried dates. It does not work where it needs to dissolve, as it does not. It is, however a nutritious, natural sweetener. I like the taste.
