Kilwins is definitely a sugar-lover's dream!
John, the owner, is super friendly and still works behind the counter from time to time. His staff is attentive and the atmosphere just oozes "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory". My favorite is the ICE CREAM of course! Particularly the unbaked, which is cake batter ice cream mixed with cookie dough ice cream in a 'made that day' waffle cone. The flavors marry very well and the contrast of textures give this review 4 1/2 diamonds!

Simple sugars are called monosaccharides and include glucose (also known as dextrose), fructose and galactose. The table or granulated sugar most customarily used as food is sucrose, a disaccharide (in the body, sucrose hydrolyses into fructose and glucose). Other disaccharides include maltose and lactose. Chemically-different substances may also have a sweet taste, but are not classified as sugars. Some are used as lower-caloriefood substitutes for sugar described as artificial sweeteners.Sugars are found in the tissues of most plants, but are only present in sufficient concentrations for efficient extraction in sugarcane and sugar beet. Sugarcane is a giant grass and has been cultivated in tropical climates in the Far East since ancient times.
