This stuff is STICKY!! It's even more viscous than honey. It IS sweet, but doesn't taste like any other sweetener, and it does add a taste of its own. It's a bit smokey. I love it in ginger tea and coffee, but it isn't like liquid sugar, which only adds sweetness (at least I think that's true...haven't had white sugar in years. Its taste is as strong as dark brown sugar, but it doesn't taste like brown sugar...or maple syrup, either. If you put it in something mild, it might add too much taste. If you put it in something strong tasting, it adds a lovely complexity, like caramelizing might do. If you're cooking carrots and you want to add a slightly complex, sweet and smokey flavor, add just a bit of this nectar, and maybe a little lemon or orange juice and some taragon or rosemary or basil. It's fabulous. I love it in lemonade...it's so exotic. And I love that it has vitamins and minerals. Just don't expect it to taste like sugar.

Coconut nectar is a wonderful extremely low GI sweetener. Apart from xylitol, it keeps your blood sugar nice and even without compromising on the taste. Coconut secret is a wonderful and trustworthy brand harvesting the sap from the coconut tree. All coconut products are amazing with amazing health benefits. It's the only sweetener I use for my family. Gives me peace of mind that my family can enjoy yummy sweets without any nasties! :)

I use it to paleo pancakes/waffles/ and baking products like pumpkin bread. Love the sweetness off it.

I feel a little better about using this, when something really needs a touch of dark sweet.

The nectar is very thick, the bottle is larger than expected, which is a nice surprise. It does not have a coconuty flavor, for me, it has a taste like some forest honey. Will buy it again when this bottle will empty, or maybe I'll buy it for someone as a gift. :)
