Honestly, so surprised! Not only did it taste so good and sweet and savory and yum! BUT it also smells
so great while baking. Neither main ingredient is overwhelming or overpowering. They compliment each 
other so perfectly..I went back for second. If you are trying to cut down on sugar but you don't want
 to compromise flavour I would totally recommend this! 

And here is the one in case the first one doesn't work:
