Sugar in Italy

As part of the SugarSpiritLogoSquare1Sugar Spirit project, I am starting to be more aware of types of sugar in other countries. When traveling to Italy recently, I picked up a couple of packets of sugar. 

The "classico" sugar, according to my trip host, would be Italian-produced crystallized beet sugar.

The (slightly racist?) "tropical" sugar is labelled as "zucchero bruno di canna" or "brown sugar of cane," so it's like Sugar in the Raw but the grains are smaller.

Not a huge revelation but one data point that will hopefully be part of a large collection of others going forward.
