Does anyone know the difference between the sanding sugar and sparkling sugar on intothe oven.com? They are both made by India Tree. I am looking for an edible product that looks like glitter! Thanks!

i have only used the sparkling ugar but I think the sanding sugar has a smaller granule. the sparkling sugar is chunkier and I think sparklier

The previous poster is correct - sanding is finer (like sand, haha), and the sparkling crystals are sparkly, but chunky. I just had to find this out myself and ended up ordering them here - http://www.countrykitchensa.com/catalog/mini.aspx?T=1&ShopId=38&CatId=624&SubCatId=1534

I love intotheoven though, but these guys were WAY less $$$!
Good luck!

Sanding sugar doesn't sparkle like Sparkling sugar. And Sanding sugar is finer.
