So is “Home-Produced Sugar” a particularly implausible brand name, a general term for sugar produced locally, or literally sugar produced in the houswife’s own home? I’m thinking one of the latter two, but I’m not sure which.
(I’m afraid I offended you, Grant, and maybe some others with ties to White Satin. It was unintentional — I only meant to joke about how unexpected it was to see another company advertising in a place that had only ever carried U&I ads. Sorry.)

No problem, Ardis. I’m not offended. I was only sticking up for my beet-farming cousins. And they don’t even like me that much because of my politics. And I keep trying to convince my wife not to by C&H, but it does no good. So I’ve basically lost the sugar wars on numerous fronts.
Well, as long as they keep serving you cake, or whatever your weakness is, you’ve got the best end of the sugar deal anyway.

My Mom grew up on beet farms in North Dakota and Montana. They seemed to be in every meal in our home. I grew to hate beets. While I do eat sugar, if I think about it coming from beets, I almost want to hurl.

Now you’ve got me wondering if the sugar I bought today to make raspberry jam is made from beets. Never thought of that before. There is a sugar beet processing plant about 30 miles down the road from where I live…
