Brown Sugar Keeper Reviewed - I Love My Brown Sugar Bear!

If you have ever had brown sugar harden in your pantry, you will understand the need for the brown sugar bear.

Brown Sugar Keeper
Not only is he adorable, but he keeps your brown sugar soft for months.  He can also be used to remove moisture from salt, spices, and other food products that are prone to go stale after the package is opened.  

Many years ago, I was given a brown sugar stone.  It looked like a flat terracotta disc or flat rock.  Not pretty, but it did the job.  I have no idea what happened to that disc.  I fear it got thrown away at some point when cleaning out my pantry. I may have looked at the date on my box of brown sugar and simply tossed it, not even thinking about the brown sugar keeper.  That seems like the most likely scenario since I haven't been able to find it anywhere.

When I opened my brown sugar a few weeks ago, I discovered it was hard as a brick.  That hardened box of brown sugar could easily be used as a weapon.  Since I have no need for a brown sugar weapon in my kitchen, I went in search of my brown sugar keeper.  That is when I discovered it was missing.  Such great sadness enveloped me until I thought of Amazon and how they might have a brown sugar keeper.  The website search began and I quickly found a variety of options.  Success!  But, now I was faced with another dilemma.  I had to choose a design.  After all, I don't really need a dozen different brown sugar keepers just because they are cute.

Choosing a design took me all of about 3 minutes. As soon as I saw the brown sugar bear, I knew the one (well, 2) that I needed.  I promptly ordered my bears and anxiously awaited their arrival.  The bear siblings arrived in perfect condition 3 days later.  

Isn't he just the cutest brown sugar keeper you ever saw!  His sister awaits her opportunity to come out and play.

How to Use a Brown Sugar Keeper

 Brown Sugar Bear Harold Import Co Original Sugar Saver and Softener, Terracotta, Set of 2Check PriceFor keeping your brown sugar soft, you simply soak the brown sugar keeper of your choice in water for 20 minutes.  Dry him off with a paper towel, and place him in your brown sugar.

For keeping moisture out of other spices or food items, you don't get him wet.  Place the dry keeper in the bag or container and let him absorb the moisture.

If your brown sugar is already hardened, like mine was, soak him and put him in the container (box or bag).  Within 24 hours, your brown sugar will be soft again.  He is a magical little bear! 

Well, they all work the same way, but you know I love my little bears.

  1. I have to admit that, until reading here about your brown sugar bear, I was not aware that there was something that kept brown sugar soft. Glad you chose the bear, as he's adorable. Although the hedgehog is pretty darn cute too. Thanks for telling me about this very helpful product, Sylvestermouse.

    1. Ah, yes! That hedgehog was quite the temptation for me when I was searching for a new brown sugar keeper. He is adorable too.

  2. Love the sound of these brown sugar savers! I had no idea there was something like this! Interesting that we can use it for spices as well. I love the bear and also the hummmingbird. The hedgehog is adorable and the Owl is cute as well, I think I like them all!:)

  3. Oh Miss Mouse I have a brown sugar weapon in my pantry right now as I am reading this. Now I know what I have to do. Although I have taken sugar out of my diet, my husband still enjoys it in his oatmeal and baking cookies. So I know I need one or two of these cute little kitchen critters. Thank you!

    1. Since you use your brown sugar infrequently, you would definitely benefit from a brown sugar keeper. I hate having to throw food away. Even if it is only a fourth of a box of brown sugar. It just seems wasteful to toss it. The brown sugar keepers are inexpensive enough that they make it worth while in my opinion.

  4. Not only have I, too, used one of these brown sugar keepers for many years, but I also started with a boring round one and (after I accidentally dropped and broke it) replaced it with a teddy bear shaped one! And, having used one to revive a rock-hard “brick” of brown sugar more than once myself, I concur wholeheartedly with you about their remarkable effectiveness and ease of use. I think one of these brown sugar keepers also would be a great “just because” gift or stocking stuffer for someone who enjoys baking. 😊

    1. You are quite right Margaret! They would make a wonderful gift for anyone who enjoys baking, or even cooking. I use brown sugar in several Italian dishes that I prepare. Even if I didn't bake, brown sugar would still be an essential in my pantry.

  5. Perfect timing! I have the hardest brown sugar at the moment. Yesterday, I actually took that "brick" of brown sugar and had to use my cheese grater to chip off enough to use. This will solve that. Thank you for something so immediately useful. Appreciated!

  6. My mom bought me one decades ago, it works great. We still have it. I remember when my husband almost tossed it out because he didn't what it was, lol. Highly recommend it -oh, and mom still has hers in her container

  7. Wow!! what a handy little item. I really never knew such a thing existed. As far as if you need a brown sugar weapon in the kitchen? It depends on who's doing the cooking!! Thanks.
