For those of you looking for molasses in France:
- Organic molasses is available from the Naturalia chain where it is sold as mélasse noire.
- Black treacle (the British name for molasses) can be found at Galéries Lafayette Gourmet.
OK. If I am not mistaken blackstrap molasse is a black kind of sugar made from sugar cane or beet, right? It has a strong smell and is very dark, almost black which is why it is called blackstrap molasse. If this is what you're talking about it is called "melasse noire" and can probably be found in a "epicerie Antillaise" (grocery store from Guadeloupe/Martinique) or any store that sells exotic products.
