What is the difference between sorghum molasses and plain molasses you buy in the grocery store?

Thanks for all the replies about sorghum molasses. Mine came from Missouri and is light in color. I just wanted to know if there was a difference in taste.

Sorghum is made from a grass-like plant, while regular molasses is made from either beet or cane sugar plants. There's no comparison in taste. Nothing is better than a hot buttered biscuit dipped in sorghum!

As I recall (which may mena this inormation aint terribly accurate) molasses can be made from different crops, sorghum bein one of the main ones, and sugar cane being another. I've attatched a link to explain about sorghum molasses and how its made if ya care to read it.

You musta never had any!

Sorghum molasses is, shall we say, strong. The real stuff.

Molasses from the store is mostly water and corn syrup or some combination of additives. Mild, sweet, and fake.
Straight Sorghum Molasses is thick, dark, strong taste with a bite. No additives, no preservatives. Just cooked-down sorghum "squeezins". Good Stuff.

Give it a taste sometime, but shall I suggest you not take a whole spoonful your first bite! Not what you are accustomed to pouring over your waffles.

Is blackstrap molasses the real thing? My grandpa used to make sorgum popcorn balls at Christmas time. I remember the first bites were not that great ,but bye the time I finised the popcorn ball I was hooked.

I just remember my dad always being on the lookout for the best sorghum molasses. "Jest a little dab'll do ya!"
