Quick and easy sugars hit sweet spots

Adding a touch of sweetness got a lot easier with two new products from C&H: Quick Dissolve Superfine Sugar and Pourable Golden Brown Sugar.

Rolled out in Sacramento supermarkets this summer, these products both hit their own sweet spot. Ground much finer than table sugar (and 15 calories per teaspoon), the superfine sugar dissolves on contact when added to drinks, hot or cold. That makes it perfect for iced tea, hot tea or even mixing cocktails (when you’re all out of simple syrup but got to have a daiquiri in a hurry). Unlike clumpy packaged brown sugar, this pourable variety flows easily out of the container in individual crystals, just right for sprinkling on oatmeal or over fruit — and only 10 calories per teaspoon.

Packaged in sleek 12-ounce flip-top containers, these sugars don’t take much counter or shelf space either. Suggested retail price is $2.75 for 12 ounces. Learn more and get a discount coupon at C&H Sugar’s official website.
