    Re: The current price of sugar.

    August 25, 2009
    I made a trip to Los Angeles to fill my new poly 100 gallon syrup tank.

    I bought 1,290 pounds of Type 55 HFCS at Los Angeles Honey Company and paid $0.31/Lb. (The tank was filled to the neck of the opening so it's a little over 100 gallons.)

    This week I found 50# bags at the Costco in Hanover Maryland. They were priced at $19.99 a bag or 40 cents a pound.

    Ever notice the 1 lb. coffee can that is 1/3 empty and has 11.50 oz. in it !

    Or the 1 lb. size bacon package that has 12 oz. of bacon ?

    Won't mention the reduction in size of the Cambell Soup cans, like most all other can goods. Most caned vegetables were in 16 oz. cans { If I remember they were called #1 cans } a lot of them now are 15 oz.in size.

    They have even reduced the ounces of potato chips in those big air filled bags.

    I noticed that what used to be a half gallon of ice cream is now 1.5 quarts. Pretty stinkin' sneaky.

    If you need sugar for a good price call Fred Rossman at Rossman Apiaries. If you're near Moultrie, Ga or attending any of the meetings that he goes to, it will be worth the call.

    We have almost as many dogs as we do bees. Dog food used to be in 50lb bags, some brands are down to 34.4 lbs now.

    I have heard that the local cash n carry has the best sugar prices, I am going to check them out soon.

    I was finally running out of the sugar I bought last year (Walmart - $1.50/5 lb bags of cane sugar) and the best price I could find, presently, was at COSTCO for $23.00/50 lb bags of C&H granulated sugar. Hopefully the two-50 lb bags I purchased will provide stimulative feed for my Nucs and cell-builders until we get some more rain, or the price of sugar goes down even more.

    Doesn't a 50 lb bag need to weigh what it says on the side of the bag. Does it indeed say 34.4?

    When we first started buying large bags they were 50lb, then they slowly went down to 40lb, some brands are at 34.4. You can still get 50lb bags in some of the cheaper foods and occasionally you will get a "special" offer of 20% free. Bottom line is they find it easier to sell if they reduce the amount you get rather than increase the price. I am sure at some point they will come out with a "New" larger bag for more $$$

    I bought 2 pallets of sugar about 2 months ago from Rossman's. Fifty pound bags for $15.00 each while Dadant's wanted $17.00 per bag. Also as a fine grained sugar that mixes easier than the normal coarse grain stuff.

    Our Walmart sells 5# bag pure cane sugar for $1.75. I think I should buy a bunch of bags.

    My local Wal Mart charges more for the 25 lb. bag of sugar than they do for 5 of the 5 lb. bags... go figure.

    As far as Walmart, I have never seen 5 pound bags; everything is in 4 pound bags these days; check to make sure yours are actually 5 lbs.
    Also, they just went up in price from $1.50 to $1.82 per 4 lb. bag.
