Also: I was helping a friend set up for a tea demonstration the other day and was putting sugar cubes in a little dish when, as veg*ns are wont to do, I started reading the packaging. I believe it was C&H brand sugar, and they made it very clear that they only use cane sugar (nonvegan, of course) and basically talked crap about beet sugar (generally vegan). What's so wrong with beet sugar? And though I never use them, I'm kind of a sucker for the cute tidyness of sugar cubes. Do they make a vegan version of these--beet sugar, natural sugar, etc?
(As usual, sorry if any of this is in the memories and I missed it..)
