Yacon Syrup

Has anyone heard of this before? A friend of mine said she started to use this as it is a healthier option. I have never seen it in the stores before, where can I find it?

I have never heard of it but looking on google it is super expensive here in the uk. Would you not be better with a natural sweetener like honey? I have heard of something called choc shot here too but not sure where you are from?

Well, apparently it's pretty good for diabetic people due to the low sugar content. I am always skeptical of things like this but it looks like it was eaten for many years by the Incas in Peru. They also make it as a tea in Brazil for people that can't have a lot of sugar and digestive issues.
