It's funny how one can become obsessed over a little detail that many would find silly. Right now mine is sugar cubes. When I was in Paris a couple of months ago, I became enamored with the little individually wrapped sugar cubes at one particular cafe. Because I thought it might be rude to ask them if I could take a handful, I just smuggled one little cube to use as research for when I got home. So far it has lead me to nada.
The prized cube that I smuggled is from Beghin Say and was wrapped in a delightful little Provencal printed paper. While I can find a million sites that offer the cubes sans wrapper, my little packaged sucre is nowhere to be found.
The only design friendly alternative that I could find were these wrapped Absinthe sugar cubes. They are packed a little more loosely for maximum melting in the anise flavored liquor, which might be nice. What do you all think? Is this a suitable substitute?
