Use all the time in cooking, fantastic

Hi Margaret, Thank you for your great review. It's great to hear that you love our coconut sugar as much as we do and you use it in your cooking! I personally like the sweet, caramel flavour and that despite it's name, it doesn't taste like coconut! Enjoy :) Hannah

Ella F

A healthier and altogether tastier alternative to cane sugar. I generally use this in baking and it lends my cakes a lovely caramel flavour. In a weird way I see it as a flavour enhancer almost like takeaways see MSG!

Hi Ella, Lucy Bee Coconut Sugar has a delicious sweet, caramel flavour, similar to brown sugar and, despite its name, doesn’t taste of coconut! It's great to hear that you like the taste! :) Hannah

Lisa T

Tastes divine. X

Hi Lisa, Thanks for another great review. Lucy Bee Coconut Sugar has a delicious sweet, caramel flavour, similar to brown sugar and, despite its name, doesn’t taste of coconut! It's great to hear that you like the taste! Hannah

Paula

One of my best decisions was buying this sugar. It tastes so good in my coffee and in everything. It really is something I can’t imagine not having in my pantry. :)

Thanks for sharing this Paula. It's also great in baking (in a Victoria sponge it adds a wonderful flavour and caramel colour) and instead of using coconut nectar, you can dissolver Coconut Sugar with a little water and use it where you need a liquid sweetener, such as in dressings. We were taste testing some pancakes in the office last week and had a little lemon juice and a sprinkling of Coconut Sugar......delicious! Petrina

Mandy L

I really love this product. It actually does have a caramel taste and add a little to my breakfast or hot choc. Not yet cooked with it but think it will be fab!! Don’t judge me but I could actually just eat it off the spoon!

We are pleased to hear you are enjoying the Coconut Sugar! I love to add this to my coffee as a tasty treat, or sprinkled over my porridge! There are lots of recipe ideas on our website www.lucybee.com . Rian.

Sonia A

A perfect sugar alternative. It's sweeter than sugar but in a natural way. It is very much a caramel kind of flavour. It works perfectly with baking and in hot drinks. We don't buy any sugar anymore, we only have this in our house.

Thank you for your review Sonia, great to hear that you're enjoying the Coconut Sugar. I use in my hot chocolate with the Lucy Bee Cacao. If you are after any more recipe inspiration then feel free to check our website - www.lucybee.com

Lynn Y

Recently decided to try this as I can't altogether give up sugar yet but this is a better option than granulated as it is low GL. Not quite as sweet but that's good to retrain taste buds. Good in coffee and recipes that need sugar.

Hi Lynn, thank you for your review. It has a GI of 35, so you are exactly right - Sugar is sugar but when you have it, it is better to indulge in a natural alternative. It is the perfect replacement to refined sugar and a little goes a long way with its caramel flavour in dishes, bakes and drinks. Jess :)

Tina P

I sometimes purchase a different brand but Lucy bee has definitely got the most caramel,sweetest flavour and my preferred brand.

Really nice flavour

I've tried this in a Victoria Sponge, instead of castor sugar and it gave it a wonderfully delicious and rich flavour, as well as an attractive golden colour! It's also great to mix with water for those recipes that need a liquid sweetener. Petrina
