molasses or black treacle

Organically produced blackstrap molasses produced in Paraguay.

You’ll probably have to visit a health food store if you want to find thick sticky mélasse or molasses made from sugar cane or sugar beets or mélasse de grenade (pomegranate molasses) or mélasse de caroube (carob molasses).

Sweet stuff
