    Default Where to buy bulk sugar?

    Where is the best place to buy bulk sugar? For now, I am getting it a Sams. A 50# bag is going for $30. Does anyone have any suggestions on where else I can buy? Im in Oklahoma.

    How much sugar are you willing to buy at one time?

    If you are simply buying by a few bags at a time, IMHO, you will have a difficult time beating Sams price. If you are capable of taking a truckload, you can get a better price. But if you are that big, buying HFCS instead of sugar is more cost effective.

    You can buy it in the grocery store on sale cheaper than the bulk price you are paying for at Sams. Those places are not always the cheapest. I bought 4lb bags of sugar tonight at Krogers for $2.19ea. I dont know how much you mix at 1 time, but I prefer the 4lb bags as I can just count them for the weight I need, instead of weighing out sugar by the pound.

    I thought I'd save money by going to a restaurant supply company and buying 50lb bags. The cost turned out to roughly equal to the Walmart price so I didn't save any money - but for me handling and storing 50lb bags is much easier than 5 or 10lb bags. I also get my fondant from them for emergency winter time feeding if I need to do so. (And I didn't have to deal with the Walmart clerk asking me just what I was going to use 250lbs of sugar for)

    25 lbs of sugar at my local Wal-Mart, not Sam's, 14.95. So basically the same price as buying at Sam's.

    Try some ag supply places for feed grade granulated sugar.

    Aldi sells it for about 50 cents a pound in the 4-lb bags, if you have Aldi near you.

    My local baking supply charges .43 cents per lb. in 100 lb bags. In 50 lb bags it's .46 cents per lb.
    By chance went into Costco to check and was pleasantly surprised to find it for .36 cents per lb in 25 lb bags.

    Okay, maybe I'm in a weird location. I just bought 50 pounds at Sam's for about $19 and I'm in Texas right along the Red River. I do agree that smaller packages on sale sometimes is cheaper than bulk

    Note that all posts before post #8 are 17 months old. Sugar prices can change quite a lot in that time.
