Such a Sweet Deal
on July 6, 2017
I love this cane sugar for several reasons. I'm not sure why I stopped using white sugar. I just wanted to try something different or maybe it was I mistakenly read how they make it white, but after 50 some years of white sugar use It was time for a change.
This was not my first choice but when I got to this one I decided it was my last choice. I think I bought those locally. Glad amazon carries it.
I like the taste in my coffee which is my main use. I can't really say it is better, but it certainly is not worse than other choices. It seems to dissolve fairly well in coffee, at least it I can say it is not any worse than other sugars i have used. I like the color. The granules are an acceptable size. I have not had a problem with it clumping up like white sugar does sometimes. Overall it just gives me a better feeling.
I had used a couple of the 4 pound bags at home. I decide that when I used up my supply of white sugar at the office, I'd start using this sugar there too. The problem I have at the office is I'm limited on space so i didn't want a 4 pound bag or larger on my counter there. I had been using like 1 pound paper cans of white sugar which didn't take up much space. So I decided to try the 1 pound bag in their place. I found on amazon I could by 12 of the 1 pound bags for about the same price (just a little more) as 3 of the 4 pound bags which would be same amount of sugar, so the price is reasonable. After using the 1 pound bags at work I decided that was the way to go for convenience as it ended up easy to handle and pour sugar directly out of the bag. Even though they are zip-lock type bags at work I just use a couple of spring clips to seal one, as it make it easier to get into frequently and I can seal it overnight so no creepy crawlies invade. I found also that when pouring from the one pound bag was easy using one hand to hold the bag and one hand to hold the opening so it forms a small pour spout and then shake the whole bag a little and sugar slides easily out but not too fast as to have too much in my coffee. It also did not make a mess with extra sugar spilling out like those round paper type cans of sugar do as some was always left on the top of the can. I also got good at timing my poor so I don't have to use a spoon either to measure it out so these smaller bags are great, take up less space and are easy to handle. i keep one open and open on standby. when I use up one I carry the empty home as a reminder to bring another full bag.
I liked this brand and size of the dozen 1 pound bags that I started a subscribe and save order with this product and don't have to worry about running out and also I can't get this smaller more convenient size locally.
