This is the original recipe with molasses that customers have loved for years. Recently, Barbara’s replaced the molasses with cane sugar. They have now gone back to the original recipe; but only in the 7.5 ounce pouch. Unfortunately, the snack size bags still contain cane sugar. Therefore, I am only recommending the 7.5 ounce bag sweetened with molasses.
