I started my cleanse with the molasses because we didn't have grade b syrup. It was so absolutely horrible to drink that I tried the grade A syrup. And I've decided to stay with it just because I know that there is no way I'd have the willpower to stay on the fast using molasses. I thought it was very distasteful. So as a compromise, I use it to sweeten my smooth move tea (morning and night) so at least I'm getting some nutrients.
