“Brown Sugar” Now What’s That?


What is it about brown sugar that catches your sweet tooth?  It’s a certain kind of sweet; not sweet like white sugar though.  From the taste, to the color, to the consistency, it’s just something about this type of sugar that when added to a bowl of flour, butter, eggs, and oil it just gives the dessert you’re making the right touch.  Not too sweet but just enough to make it taste just right!  What is it about “brown sugar” that can make a man or a woman lose his or her mind?  First of all, what is brown sugar?  Well, it must be so good that D’Angelo had to sing a song about it; and hey Taye Diggs starred in a movie called “Brown Sugar”.  So what is this thing, and how can I get my hands on it?

For me Brown Sugar is…that sweet feeling when you first meet someone…that first point of contact…it’s never too sweet…it’s always just right.  It adds flavor to your life without overpowering you…it is simple…and uncomplicated.  Drama free…it’s a spice of life.  It’s the point in a relationship that just is and exists.  It’s not the main ingredient of the relationship, but its extra flavoring makes things sweet…nice…calm and pleasant.

So I posed the question to my peers, what is Brown Sugar to you and here’s what they said:

“What is brown sugar?? It’s unique, attractive, yet sweet with every taste”.  –Jeradiah

“A delightful sugar used for baking chocolate chip cookies?” –Kate

“It’s great for BBQ sauces & baked beans… it comes in dark brown & light brown”. –LaKristal

“As in ‘Brown Sugar’ the film..it was defined as the sweetness of black life and best of black friendship”.  –Michael 

“Anythng sweet”.  –Erin

“A woman who is equally sexy in a business suit and cocktail dress”.  –Sunnie

As you can see, no one had anything negative to say about their experiences with brown sugar.  So see whether you are cooking up a treat or a meal or out on the town mingling, brown sugar will always be that little sumthin’ sumthin’ that adds flavor.  

Have you found the Brown Sugar in your life?  Do you represent this sweet spice of life?  You attract that which you are.  Can you learn to be sweet but not too overbearing in your love relationships?  Can you accept someone adding a sweet flavoring to your life and can you be that flavoring?  I know one thing, I’m looking for my “Brown Sugar”; I’ve got a major sweet tooth.  In the meantime, I’m working on just being that brown sugar.  It’s not a difficult task…

“Brown Sugar”

Your lips are like Brown Sugar to me…
The lingering of your sweet honey
Dew drops that melt in my mouth
Your kiss is like Brown Sugar to me…
I want some of your Brown Sugar…
