There's also this cane sugar product made in the USA.
Maui Brand Natural Cane Sugars are made in Maui by Hawaiian Commercial  
& Sugar Company using 100% cane sugar grown on our 37,000-acre central  
Maui plantation. We've extracted the pure sweetness from the cane  
juices, retaining some of the natural molasses in the crystals, to  
bring you superior quality natural sugars that will enhance the flavor  
of your favorite beverages, cereals, baked goods, and recipes.

Maui Brand Natural Cane Sugars come in two styles: Natural White™ and  
Premium Maui Gold™.


We toured the Alexander & Baldwin Sugar Museum when we were there in  
2007 and drove through a number of the fields.

This may have been true once upon a time, and may still be with some  
rare sugar products. But the vast majority of brown sugar products in  
USAmerican supermarkets does not have added molasses to color the  
otherwise white sugar. On most packages it says that the sugar is  
colored with caramel or caramel coloring, which can be more white  
sugar which has been cooked and caramelized.
