"Where is your molasses?"
"Uh..." he looked around him, then back at me. "Is that like a drink?"
I was startled. I had been prepared for him not knowing where it was, but not knowing what it is?! I laughed, shook my head and said I would just keep looking. A few aisles over I flagged down another worker and repeated my question.
"I don't know. What is it?"
"Um...processed Sorghum?" Which of course was very unhelpful. "It's a dark, sweet syrup used in baking." I quickly added.
"Oh! Try the baking aisle!"
Yes. Thank you. Very helpful.
I never did find it. Is molasses really that uncommon of an ingredient? Or is it the fact that it is an ingredient and not an end product that makes it so unknown?
