Great price. Good quality. Feel a lot more energetic.

This has a very strong flavour that I struggle with in isolation, but I absolutely love this in certain baking recipes. A couple of tablespoons adds a nice complexity to chocolate cookies, for example. Would love to see this in glass packaging.
07/06/2020, By Annie
The taste is a bit too strong for my liking.
30/05/2020, By keitumetse
Disappointed to find out that I detest this flavour! :(
Nothing wrong with it though, good quality and great price for those who enjoy it.

Lower GI than sugar and nutrient dense.
I add a tablespoon to my baking.

Doesn't sweeten
16/05/2020, By Amanda
Love the taste, enjoy it on good bread or rolls
12/05/2020, By Rosemary
I bought this product as a wanted to make a traditional ginger cake and couldn’t find black treacle, it worked perfectly and very good value for money.
11/05/2020, By Luna

Molasses can be difficult to source therefore am quite elated to discover FTN supplies it.

I have been using this gelatin for some time now because i was on a weight-loss journey and i wanted to see if this would help with improving my skin elasticity and prevent excessive sagging, i have recently gained weight but what i can say is the stretch marks are less visible so it has improved my skin's elasticity.

I really love Molasses. I always take it once a week with sodium bicarbonate to kill acid reflux and alkaline the body. It has reported that Molasses and Sodium Bicarbonate taken in Conjunction really aids in Cancer. I know some use it a sugar alternative but I prefer drinking it with Bicarbonate, it does wonders to maintaining a healthy gut.
24/02/2020, By Liezl
Very strong taste.. I've tried other more palatable brands. I now use it only as a proportional substitute for baking with treacle sugar (not 100% replacement due to its strong taste, cannot have it on empty stomach or even in coffee as some suggested.
16/09/2019, By Lee
Use this product for helping with anemia. Tastes great in oats
07/05/2019, By Monique
I like adding this to some baked stuff especially things like ginger bread, it goes well with ginger and cinnamon etc. Also nice to mix it into greek yogurt with some dates or banana and some honey.
06/05/2019, By Cookie
Mix with lemon juice or ACV- good for reproductive system:)
08/04/2019, By Mariam
Good and effective. Just make it consistent.
03/03/2019, By Michaela
I kind of have to force this down, I really don't like the taste. However its a really good sugar substitute and is excellent for making hair healthy and strong
28/01/2019, By Groen Boer
Used it ass a nutrient supplement for my cannabis plants, and produced really big buds..
27/10/2018, By Anon
I absolutely hate the taste of this, simply because it tastes like liquorice, and I hate the taste of liquorice in a general sense.
It is however packed with good vitamins and minerals, and the price is also extremely reasonable.

Would be better if it weren’t in a plastic bottle though.
19/09/2018, By Nicole
I'm not a huge fan of the taste but I use it for the vast amount of health benefits. Great for baking with. I have a tablespoon downed with water every morning. My kids have a teaspoon too and don't seem to mind the taste. My husband enjoys it in his tea. Affordable and great for your health in moderation.
09/08/2018, By Mary
Tastes great in porridge and baking.
10/07/2018, By Sarah
Great health benefits at a reasonable price.
My husband dislikes taking supplements in pill form but loves taking a spoonful of molasses every day.
12/05/2018, By Mariam
Very healthy and for the price its certainly worth it. I have a tblsp in glass of milk. Doesn't taste bad.
23/03/2018, By Wangapajanga
I love it as a tea on its own, its great with peppermint too!
I noticed i sleep better, good bowel movement,energy,clearer skin!
But best of all it helped with my anaemia.
24/02/2018, By Mo
Great value and so delicious! I use this in everything, even my stews. It's such a great way to get tasty nutrition into fudge, and i use it whenever I can. It's a great price and a great product, and just YUM. I'm so tempted to use it to make licorice. Thank you for this great product
08/01/2018, By Belz
Excellent product, been using for years. I've an iron deficiency, don't take any other supplement but this.
23/11/2017, By Tali
Love it. Just need to learn how to use it a little better. Worth the buy.
21/11/2017, By Zest
This is a great blackstrap molasses at a great price, but I just can't get past the taste :( Will be going back to Nature's Choice Sweet Molasses when this tub is done. Fantastic health benefits though, such as a much-needed boost in iron etc.
31/10/2017, By Jo-anne
Added it to my ginger biscuit recipe, very yummy.
16/10/2017, By Kim
I wanted to try making rye bread and learnt you need molasses. I now use blackstrap molasses regularly as a honey substitute with peanut butter sarmies as it is not so sweet and I also use it in other breads too. It adds a deep colour and a moist texture.
08/10/2017, By Faeezah
Slightly bitter at the end but tasty and full, have it with milk. Tastes almost like the Wilson's champion toffee...with less sweetness ofcourse
03/10/2017, By Mariam
I have a tsp in half a glass of milk daily. Its certainly pallatable. In terms of the health benefits that it provides, thats spot on. I've been having it for the past 3 years.
15/09/2017, By Pj
I bought this to treat with my anaemia(naturally) and I must say it(among other things) helped out a great deal;my iron levels are nearly back to normal and I got some many other benefits from it too, my digestion and skin improved. I love it in peppermint tea!
09/08/2017, By thefastedplant
Love this in my vegan recipes, like gingerbread nice cream, ginger cookies, etc. Also it has a high iron content and being a vegan blood donor, I consistently need to ensure I absorb enough iron (with help of vitamin C) than people who consume animal products... I love the hot spicy rich taste this brings to my smoothies too!
12/07/2017, By Megan-lee
I bought this to add to my toddler's milk to help with her iron intake, she actually loves it! Now I'm doing the same thing to up my iron intake.
16/06/2017, By KS
love it on good bread

love it on good bread
04/05/2017, By K
drink with warm coffee or tea or water, on empty stomach first thing in moring, and if drank daily, all constipation gone
14/10/2016, By Angelique
I tried it in tea and I have not quite stomached the taste yet. Sure it is good for your health though.
24/09/2016, By Karin
I like this as a spread on good bread or rolls - very healthy as well.
22/08/2016, By Sindy
Ive substituted coffee with this product. I drink it with honey and I don know if its just me but it tastes just like coffee!!
Glad I bought it.
14/09/2015, By Kelly
My taste buds have been bombarded, in the past, by ultra-sweet sugary things - and so the slightly bitter taste of the molasses took some getting used to, but its great when mixed into things like warm oats and smoothies; and the iron content is a win for vegan ladies. :)
26/06/2015, By Maria
I took this on Woody Cape Chicory (caffeine free). Its delicious whilst the chicory coffee is still warm.

I hope it will help shrink the fibroids in my body
20/02/2015, By Estelle
Very happy with the taste. Take a teaspoon first thing in the morning on an empty tummy mixed with half a cup of warm water.

Really is pleasant. Will buy again
