OK, so I'm getting pretty tired of being ripped off! It annoys me that if I want to buy sanding sugar, that I am being charged £3 for 50g!!!!! EH??? It is freaking sugar with powder colour in it! seriously??

Anyway, I know that the guys selling this stuff are highly likely to be buying in 25kg bags for about £30 and and then selling it on in dinky tiny containers to folks like me who are stupid enough to buy it. What I want to know is, where can I buy bulk sanding sugar or white sugar crystals? I can't find anywhere online and it's driving me mad!

Any info would be fab.

You might try contacting QA Products to see if they have an international distributor.

I shop @ Lucks and they sell larger quantities of sanding sugar for far less than £3 for 50g (or $4.88 for 1.76oz). They have 3.6kg boxes for £10.45 (man I hope my conversions are close lol 8lbs for $16.75). You're probably looking at $150.00 or so for international shipping, however. They have a couple distributors in the UK. These guys: http://www.thecakedecoratingcompany.co.uk sell sanding sugar in a slightly larger quantity than you're buying it now for a lower price. Perhaps you could contact them about providing you larger quantities than what they list on their website. Wish I could be more helpful! I know how frustrating it can be to be price gouged! thumbsdown.gif
