D’Vash Date Nectar is sweet as molasses
Disclamier: D'vash contacted us to see if we would try their product. Our purpose at Southern Food Junkie is not to tell you a product is good or bad but simply to share with you a brand you may not have heard of before.
In recent years, there have been tons of new products that have come on the scene as a sugar replacement. You have agave nectar, Stevia, and Splenda just to name a few. Most of those have advantages and disadvantages. Whether it is a bad after taste, or lacking in nutrition that has turned you away, now there is a new choice on the market. This is D’Vash Date Nectar.
There is also a reference to it being the honey mentioned in the bible.
To give you some history on Date Nectar, it has been used for centuries in Middle Eastern Countries. Some also believe that the reference to honey mentioned in the bible is Date Nectar. Here is the scripture I am referring to, “And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites (Exodus 3:8, KJV).” It is said that they were actually talking about date honey and not bee honey.
When I tasted it, again, it has a molasses-like flavor.
The sample I received from D’Vash Date Nectar was packaged in straws. I have seen honey packaged this way in order to eat it as a snack. Upon opening the straw you could smell the nectar. It has a strong molasses-like smell to it. When I tasted it, again, it has a molasses-like flavor. You still taste the date flavor in it too. D’Vash Date Nectar does have a saltiness to it that you can taste. It was very good just to eat plain. Very sweet but not overly sweet. I tried it on some toast with peanut butter on it. The flavors married well with the peanut butter. I would like to try it as a pancake syrup too. I feel that would make an awesome syrup.
The next thing to do with D’Vash Date Nectar is to try it in a recipe. There are a few southern recipes that I want to try it in but the one thing that comes to mind is Molasses cookies. In other words, keep your eye out for that post because it is going to be good. Check out our video below of our actual taste test. If you are not subscribed to our channel, please do so.
