We keep our sugar in a ceramic container by the stove. We don't use a lot of sugar. A five pound bag lasts more than a year. My daughter was having coffee and notice that her coffee with sugar smelled (and tasted?) like perfume. She traced it down to the sugar, which had the perfume smell to it.
Has anyone come across this before? Did the sugar go bad or ? Any chemists out there that might have a clue? I tossed the sugar.
