How is your sugar packaged?
In America, my mom buys her sugar in a 5 pound, rather durable paper package.
In Japan, our sugar looks like the picture above. The largest amount I've seen in the markets is 1 kilo, about 2 pounds.
The plastic around the sugar is so tight that it is quite hard to get the sugar out of the bag.
Most times while transferring the sugar into my container, I end up spilling some.
I have a feeling that they package sugar this way for storage purposes. It won't take so much space on store shelves.
I imagine drugs in kilo form look similar to this.
The weather is supposed to warm up today then we'll have rain for a couple of days before going back to cold weather.
Hope you have a nice weekend.
