You're right about giving them as gifts. My friends complained about their brown sugar going to rock and I showed them what I use. I decided to give one to each of them along with a container of brown sugar cookies. They loved the disc. They still use them. Hope they liked the cookies as well. It made a nice little token gift.

Wow---a disc and a batch of cookies to go with them----that's a great idea, DQ!!!!! Where I live, brown sugar is not on the shelves for long so you've inspired me

The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

speaking of brown sugar, I get really irritated at the stores always having sales on the light brown sugar but never the dark brown, which I think is so much nicer. And the dark brown has those little solidified nuggets in them, that the kids and I mine out for a little nibble treat too.
On occasion when I've run out of brown sugar, I've made my own by adding a little Gramdma's Molasses to the white sugar and mixed through it. Very good flavor.

Here is what it looks like.
I have those too .
