We switched from Sam's Club to Costco about a year ago. I feel as if I've had more trouble w/ the Costco powdered sugar. Anyone else?

I really like Costco's powdered sugar. However, my Costco has stopped selling it, claiming all the pallets on the top shelf are only for their bakery. My parents are still able to get it at their Costco for me, though. I may have to look into Sams - the sugar there is 10x, not 6x right?

I use Sam's, & have no problems. Yes, I think it's the 10x.

10X is still available in 7# bags at our local Costco - I bought 2 yesterday. I have no problems with it.

Sam's sells 7 lb bags of 10 powdered sugar (Bakers and Chefs brand) as well as 50 lb bags of Domino 6x sugar. After having gone through several hundred pounds of 6x sugar, I'm back to paying a bit more for the 10x.

I used to buy sams ps, but found it to be grainy. So I started to buy from bjs they sell domminos brand.

That's weird you found Sam's powdered sugar to be grainy, because 10x is 10x is 10x.

10x is the grade of how finely ground the sugar is. 6x is courser sugar, 12x is superfine.
