Sugar not so Sweet!
I ordered 13 bags of this sugar to make sugar syrup to feed my honey bees. Most of the packages had been opened and the sealed shut with packaging tape. sugar had spilled out past the tape and was all over the box. I weighed a few of the resealed bags and they were under 4 LBs. I know they didn't rip during shipment because of the packaging tape. I'm very disappointing in Walmart.
Much Older Shelf Item Than Store Product
so I decided to place an order online for several packages for volume baking i was planning (I don't drive and so, I was only able to pick up one bag (exp date 2020) in the store to try, and it's labeled as pure can sugar-and worked out very well) This review has to do with the fact that I received a product from the online store that was a year older than what is currently being sold in stores-- The fact that the bags we received were 'over a-year-old' with a DIFFERENT expiration date (exp Jan 2019) than the one purchased in person from the W-store (exp 2020) -- was very unsettling -- And on top of worrying that i would have to take a cab to exchange this year old/stale batch for a fresh batch with current expiration dates --but Walmart customer service was super helpful and assured me that they would re-order the items and double check the expiration date also. So while I was super disappointed I hopefully will receive the order in time to bake for the event as planned and then update on performance of the product. But it's best to buy food items in person only as you can't see the expiration dates online--
Ideal for all your sugar needs.
The price of this less refined sugar cannot be beat. It is delicious and my homemade blackberry jam is the best ever this year because of it! I find that I use a little less because of the rich flavor. If you are budget and health conscious it is a good choice.
Shipping needs work
The sugar product is great, but I'll never order the 4 lb bag online again. We use sugar to supplement feed our bee hives during low nectar flows, and we normally purchase the 25 lb bag. It was out of stock, so I ordered 16 of the 4 lb size. Apparently many of the bags had opened before shipping, because six of the bags were taped shut and two of the bags were missing about half of the sugar. The shipping department taped the bags shut anyway and sent them to me as a whole bag. During shipping a seventh bag opened and dumped sugar all over the box. I've never had issues with ordering the 25 lb bag.
Why pay more?
Just as good as name brand and kind to my wallet!
