Private Selection Turbinado Sugar

I've never had reason for a sugar more coarse than granulated. For upcoming cookies where this is optional, I figured, okay, now's the time to break into this world.

I don't get why people are so against sugar. It's only 4 grams of carbs per tsp.

I don't get the serious seal on things. Even when you pull the peel tab, the sticker sticks like hell.

Here's where it is though. Compare the turbinado (right) with the granulated (left) sugar. Clearly, the turbinado is brown and large, essentially huge. The big crystals is what gives a cookie a crunchy topping. I consider that a pro.

Private Selection Natural Cane Turbinado Sugar available for $3.19 a 907 gram box making each of 227 tsp about $0.015.
