Product Description

Flavor: White and Brown Sugar | Size: 5.5 Pound

Sugar cane is a wild reed thought to have originated in Bengal. Today La Perruche cane sugar is cultivated in Reunion Island, a tropical paradise of flavors and fragrances. The sugar canes soak up all the aromas and goodness of the rich soil in the North and East of the island which enjoy generous rainfall and are aired by the trade winds. Harvested and pressed from July to December, the sugar cane produces a sweet liquid that thickens into a syrup before the formation of the first crystals. It is this sweet gold that secured the reputation of the island, then known as Ile Bourbon, back in the 19th century. The La Perruche brand was created in the latter part of the 19th century and won several medals at the Paris Universal Exhibition in 1889, the year famous for the construction of the Eiffel Tower! Since this date, La Perruche has contributed to establishing French gastronomy worldwide. These days La Perruche has been adopted in the culinary cultures of all 5 continents and is served in the world's most elegant hotels and restaurants.

Customer Reviews

It is great in coffee or tea.
Moomers
They have a depth of flavor that enhances tea with a touch of delicate molassesy, caramelized sugar sweetness.
NYShopaholic
Quality of the sugar, and it's timely arrival earns this a 5 star recommendation.

I bought these cubes primarily for making old fashioned's. Now I was taught the original (old fashioned way ;P) to make a proper old fashioned. I take great care in making it properly, as should you, because if you know what a proper old fashioned tastes like, you'll know it is truly a classic that should be respected. I'll get to how it's done in a second, first let me tell you why these cubes are the best.

They are true cane sugar, not the processed white crap. These give your drink a sweet, but not overpowering flavor. Don't get me wrong, they are strong, but instead of just flat out sweetness, they have a mild, natural, almost maple/honey flavor to go along with the rich, deep, sweetness. It's magical what this does to a drink, and not just an old fashioned, but tea, coffee, these things just make your drinks taste better, period. They're magical cubes that I now keep in a special white bowl with special tongs, I love them. When dissolved they create the best simple syrup imaginable, and that's the key, the reason you use these instead of a simple syrup in a drink like and old fashioned is because they give you the perfect amount of sweetness required.

They may be a little on the pricier side if bought in smaller packages, but there are a LOT in this package, and it really is quite a good price for the quality you are getting. Now, on to what I was talking about earlier regarding an Old Fashioned.

How it's done:
I drop one of these sugar cubes in an old fashioned glass
Wet it with 2-4 drops of angostura bitters (which you can buy here: http://www.amazon.

First of all huge thanks to Amazon. I ordered the cubes on 8/23 and they arrived 8/23, WOW!

I have been buying the La Perruche brown sugar cubes for years. The cubes have a subtle molasses/honey flavor and go well with my freshly brewed morning coffee. I used to be able to get the cubes at Whole Market or Whole Foods but not anymore so thankfully Amazon sells them. There is so much publicity about sugar being unhealthy, but I think of these cubes as being the "healthy sugar".

The description says 26.5 oz....the actual product is 17.6 oz. Not really a problem unless you are buying this for a very specific reason and need a certain amount at a certain price. Had I known the correct size, I would have purchased more to fulfill the need.

Hard to explain but every time I buy a box of these rough cubes I feel like I have received a special gift because they are by far the best sugar cubes in the world, love the packaging as well. They are all different sizing so you can choose what you need. These should be in every grocery store like they are in France!. It just has a superior taste and makes the coffee taste even better. Also great when you serve coffee to guests, looks nice in your sugar bowl.

I first started using these sugar cubes when we lived in Tokyo. They were sold in the local international market. They have almost a caramel taste. A little different from a straight white sugar cube. They dissolve very quickly and I also love the the fact that each sugar cube is a different size.

I was disappointed not to be able to find them in my supermarkets when we moved back to the U.S.. I decided to do a search on Amazon and voila! They were on their website and now I am happy!

One cube of natural sugar and you're good. Perfect for tea lovers as taste of tea improves rather than being masked.

These are advertised as 26.5 oz boxes and what I received were 8.8 oz boxes -- that's about a third of what I'd expected. This is not a reflection on the product, which is excellent. This is a bad reflection on the seller who duped me into paying much more for less.

If you enjoy presentation and the luxury and organic look of natural sugar cubes, you will not go wrong with La Perruche Brown Sugar Cubes.
