"Demerara” sugar sounds like “them are rarer.” “Jokes about white sugar are rare, but jokes about brown sugar? Demerara....” was posted on Twitter on January 31, 2014. The demerara joke has been printed on several images.


Wikipedia: Brown sugar
Brown sugar is a sucrose sugar product with a distinctive brown color due to the presence of molasses. It is either an unrefined or partially refined soft sugar consisting of sugar crystals with some residual molasses content (natural brown sugar), or it is produced by the addition of molasses to refined white sugar (commercial brown sugar).

Turbinado, demerara and so-called “raw” sugars are made from crystallized, partially evaporated sugar cane juice and spun in a centrifuge to remove almost all of the molasses. The sugar crystals are large and golden-coloured. This sugar can be sold as is or sent to the refinery to produce white sugar.

Had to look it up on Google. Seems like demerara isn’t even the same thing as brown sugar.

Unlike brown sugar, which is just refined white sugar lightly bathed in a bit of molasses (this is a good thing to know, as you can just substitute brown sugar for white sugar with a bit of molasses added), Demerara sugar is a large-grained, somewhat crunchy, raw sugar with origins in Guyana (a colony formerly called ...
