Which sugar do you use, white sugar or brown sugar? We always use brown sugar in our home since we have always been told that it is the healthier of the two, although too much sugar intake is not good on the whole. I think the brown sugar sells at a more affordable price too although it sometimes depends on the brand that we buy. I have not bought white sugar in ages so I am not too sure how much that sells for these days, but I suspect that on the whole, it is more expensive that the brown variety. Years ago we used white sugar for baking cakes only.
