great sugar, great price
I made the decision some time ago not to buy bleached sugar ever again. I was thrilled to find this product: fair trade certified natural sugar at a good price.
Great Deal for Fair Trade
If what you’re looking for is the most organic sugar for your buck, then you’ll want to look elsewhere. Whole Food’s has bulk organic sugar for around ~$1.60/lb. And by ‘bulk,’ I don’t mean like Sam’s Club or Costco’s. You scoop/pour the sugar into your own jar (tagged and pre-measured at customer service) or a bag there.
If you’re looking to help your fellow man out a little more, than this isn’t too bad once in a while but it’s steep increase at ~$2.80/lb. This is in contrast to the Wholesome Sweeteners Fair Trade Organic Sugar, 16-Ounce Pouches (Pack of 12), which is the same exact product but around ~3.56/lb, and at best (with Subscribe/Save) $~3.03/lb.
To be completely fair, there have been arguments made against Fair Trade and whether or not it truly helps the struggling farmers that it markets itself as protecting. I won’t link out to anything specific but you can Google “Fair Trade Debate” and find a good amount of criticism against it.
I like to think that it does help.
But I also won’t pretend that I don’t also get the standard organic sugar in bulk.
High quality sugar!
This is great sugar. It has a beautiful blonde color and tastes like great sugar. I love that it is organic and fair trade. This is the best price I’ve found so far and the 10 lb bag will last me a long time. It also nice that it comes in a resealable bag too! Happy customer. Will buy again when I run out.
organic sugar by wholesome sweeteners
I love this sugar. As long as this corporation maintains their claimed standards of integrity and dedication I will continue to support it, but more over it is not a chinese product which I refuse to be a part of a problem.
This tastes just like normal sugar. This also dissolves just as rapid as normal sugar. It also looks like normal sugar. The bag can be resealed time and time again after you open it.
Has a wonderfull natural flavor. Great in baked good and yummy in coffee. I made Toffee with it and it was far supurior to white sugar.
very good sugar
tastes great, i can now put sugar in my mug without the thought of putting chemicals in my body twice a day from my coffee
No complaints. This is exactly as pictured and described. We are using it to make Chai, and it has good flavor and texture. The only complaint is the price – you can find better deals for raw sugar, albeit not organic, on Amazon.
