> I really like using demarara, it's a bit like granulated sugar, seems to come in white and golden. I bring bags of both types back with me whenever we go to England.

> I don't know why we in America don't have the many sugar types that are produced in England. Same goes for cream and milk products: double cream, Jersey cream, clotted cream--yum!
I was surfing the web and found this thread.
I have recently purchased from my local supermarket (I live in NJ, USA)
"demerara brown sugar" that seems to be the real McCoy
(it is like turbinado sugar but with a stronger 'brown sugar' flavor) - I found it with various Jamaican products, if that will help you to locate it.
