Really delicious and just the right amount of sweetness. Has a caramel flavor

delicious fantastic alternative healthy sweetner
08/06/2019, By Elizabeth
A little goes a long way. I sweeten my kefir, morning oats or add a bit to a smoothy. Great at binding and sweetening oat, nut and dried fruit balls.

This is great for creating alternatives for caramel-type flavours. Love this.
10/02/2019, By Shaylin
Good vegan alternative to honey, although it is not my favourite sweetener, I do prefer maple syrup.
09/01/2019, By Caroline
2 points for the low sugar and sweet taste.

3 points for the plastic container, the plastic wrapping that comes off, and the difficulty of squeezing the syrup out.

Will rather attempt to make home-made syrup using FtN's dates that come in plastic-free packaging. Wonder if FtN's dates come from SA or not?

Love this as a change of taste when substituting for honey/maple syrup in home-made breads! Give it a try when baking ...
05/12/2018, By Fran
Definitely a great product. Lovely, deep and full "caramelish" date taste. Love that this product come from the heart of Israel. Will definitely buy it again and certainly recommend it.

Thick and traders like pure dates. A great substitute sugar in baking or drizzled over morning oats.
29/11/2018, By MK-1
I had bought with great anticipation thinking I was getting a Medjool Dates in a sauce. I am familiar with the date used here. However it's still a nice additive. I added it to a Smoothie and surprisingly it imparted its flavor too.
24/11/2018, By Char
Great for baking and as a sweetener - I use it in my smoothies and it adds a great taste too.
14/11/2018, By Clara
I enjoy this guilt free syrup. I make chocolates with coconut oil and cacao and adding the date syrup, instead of another alternative, I am happy for my little toddler to also have a treat
12/11/2018, By Melanie
High quality date syrup. The same quality as when I first purchased them in the Middle East Jordan.
09/11/2018, By Tony
The best in oats & muesli
06/11/2018, By Carien
So yummy! Smoothies and oats would just not be the same without it!
18/10/2018, By Tracy
It's okay on it's own, though my kids aren't crazy about it (it does taste a lot like molasses). I like it as an alternative sweetener in baking, although it's too pricey for that so I probably won't buy again.
28/09/2018, By Sunette
Great syrup, a favourite at our table. Not overly sweet and a caramel like taste. Works really well with stewed apple & cinnamon, breakfast porridge, oat base waffles and pancakes. Top it off with wipped cream or coconut cream for extra indulgence

I was so looking forward to trying this date syrup, but I must be honest I am disappointed. I am not fond of the taste. I expected it to be a thicker and tastier syrup. In my opinion, it does not taste like date syrup should taste. The plastic wrapper comes undone rather quickly after use and then the bottle does not look so presentable.

My 6 year old is on a gluten-, sugar- and dairy free diet. He loves this syrup on his oats and sorghum in the morning! He calls it his “chocolate syrup”!
08/09/2018, By Sian
It's totally delicious. Great for baking or making raw treats. Excited to use this on more recipes!
29/08/2018, By Lee-Anne
I love this.
22/08/2018, By Zena
What can I say? Simply delicious.
16/08/2018, By Tammi
Delicious, nice consistency, intense sweet flavor.
08/08/2018, By Janine
I lived on a Kibbutz near Kinneret and the date syrup tastes exactly like the dates from there. It is a great sugar alternative and cheaper than maple syrup!
07/08/2018, By Mum 2 Shehzad
It has a strong taste to it. I kept trying to distinguish as to what it actually taste like. I would bite an actual date then taste the syrup and still seem like it doesnt take like the Homemade Date Paste/Syrup I make. I hate the container. The sticker/plastic looks really cheap if it peels off, especially the top part
06/08/2018, By LOIS
We discovered Date syrup in Israel earlier this year and we are now totally addicted to it. We were so happy to find that it is available in South Africa. I have ordered it twice now from FtN and will continue to do so.
06/08/2018, By Celina
Very tasty with a caramel after taste. have been using it as a sugar substitute and very successfully using no sugar in tea or coffee anymore.
01/08/2018, By JT
I love using this date syrup as a replacement for sugar, so it goes in my coffee or recipes.
24/07/2018, By Alisa
Wonderful replacement to help my when I want to add a sweetness to my dish - I use it in my porridge instead of sugar.
20/07/2018, By Kate
So sticky and thick, nice and sweet. Wish it was cheaper.
16/07/2018, By Lyn
Great on plain yogurt!
10/07/2018, By Lyn
Dark, rich and very sweet. Has many uses. I actually prefer my homemade version but these is more convenient.
05/07/2018, By Annelien
I like it very much it's like dates in fluid form...a must for date lovers!!It's not overly sweet like Syrups usually are
02/07/2018, By sam
Rich, deep, dark and sweet. As per experience, all produce grown in Israel is just so succulent and juicy.
29/06/2018, By Diane
Have been waiting a long time for a product like this. Use it to replace sugar in baking and smoothies.
11/06/2018, By Leane
It has a beautiful liquidy consistency.
26/03/2018, By Chere
Tastes great. Quite sweet and tastes just like dates with a chocolatey aftertaste. A must for date lovers, but I think it will make a good substitute for other syrups. Its taste is between apricot jam and maple syrup.
