Have not tried the real thing but this is pretty yummy. I think it should be a dessert though lol...not sure i could do the real thing for breakfast unless alot smaller and came with some eggs. I also made Konas macadamia nut butter last week and bought the sweet hawaiian bread and loved that too! Have to make all this sweet stuff before my husband gets home from Iraq! he doesnt have a sweet tooth lets just say im excited!!!
