The taste is similar to brown sugar with a touch of caramel and butterscotch notes. So when a recipe calls for brown sugar, I substitute coconut palm sugar instead (1 cup = 1 cup) then figure out with the next batch whether I need to adjust the amount up or down. Usually it has been right on.
I have only seen the green bag (original flavor) but last month at Whole Foods, I found Fleur De Sel and Vanilla-flavored coconut palm sugar! Hmm… wonder what I can do with them?
