Owing to your difficulty getting Mexican honey and consequently taking it off your shelves, I have been looking for an alternative sweetener for my coffee. Sweet Freedom Dark is the perfect answer with many added bonuses. Low calories, low GL, Gluten free, suitable for vegans and even cheaper to buy. I am so pleased with Sweet Freedom Dark.Reviewer's Name:

I love Sweet Freedom Dark - it's one of my favourite alternative sugars/sweeteners and I know people use it as alternative honey as well. It's such a simple and healthy idea so it's amazing that it wasn't released years ago but that's how it is sometimes. I personally use this instead of sugar in hot drinks, porridge, cakes, chocolate making and anything where I want a moist yet sweet texture. It really is great - versatile, healthy and tasty! It's a shame that it's quite pricey though - so an alternative would be argave nectar.Reviewer's Name:

One of the better sweeteners out there, it has a very fruity taste that does not combine well with buttery flavours in baking ect but it is very nice as a treat to dip apples in or if baking with coconut oil.Reviewer's Name:

Is fine for type 2 diabetes because of low fructose but not type 1, and I'm not a fan of squirty bottles because they take ages to drip, but overall is a nice lite sweetener that's all natural. You might need something slightly stronger for cooking though.Reviewer's Name:

Truly rich and delicious syrup that tastes magnificent both cooked and uncooked - cooked it makes a very nice and appetizing glaze and uncooked it's like what I envision nectar as. Very nice, thick and sweet syrup.Reviewer's Name:
