This Rock Candy was perfect for what we were wanting, but the only reason why I didn't give it a perfect score was the packaging.
The 5 lbs of sugar was packaged loose in a box that was just closed with a string....so we had rock candy falling out of the box while it was being walked in by the delivery company. If the candy was in a plastic bag, inside the box that it was packaged in, we would have received the actual 5 lbs of product that we ordered.
A very consistent product
Pros: Yes I would great for cooking
I was please with the rock candy as I use it to make Umeshu, a plumb infused alcohol drink served on crushed ice. It will be 6 months before I can taste it, but the bulk rock candy allowed me to weight the amounts easily. One 5 lb. box (by my recipe) made nearly 24 quarts!
I am using them on my wedding cake for a diamonds and pearls theme. Can't wait to use them! I also bought the ones on the strings and was not happy with those. But these r real nice.
Pros: The medium size and flexibility to do so much with them.
I was making apricot brandy and this product was FAR superior to what I could get locally, and it didn't have strings in it. I will definitely buy it again next year!!!!
Pros: Size and lack of strings
Cons: Price is still high, but it is far more convenient
The white crystals were exactly what I expected and very yummy. We are using for a wedding and they will be the perfect sweet accent.
Cons: Packaging. They came packaged in a box with no inner packaging.
Price per pound $5.80
