Yup definitely added sugars in some vinegar. Offtopic but added sugars - baking vanilla - if it is artificial and not the real deal, check out the ingredients. Caramel food color in artificial vanilla = sugar.

Thanks for posting that link, BossMare. I wonder about this line, "commercial balsamic sold in supermarkets is typically made with red wine vinegar or concentrated grape juice mixed with a strong vinegar which is laced with caramel and sugar." I wonder if that means there is added sugar in some vinegars. I never even read the labels before, to be honest. Sugar might explain why Mom's balsamic vinegar is so yummy to me.

For some interesting reading, go here:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vinegars

The difference between truth and fiction is that fiction has to make sense.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jer. 29:11 (NIV)

Live your life in such a way that when your feet hit the floor in the mornings, Satan shudders and says "Oh, no, she's awake!"

Vinegars can vary in price, particularly with the balsamic. Huge difference in flavor between the cheapest and some of the more specialized spendy ones. I honestly don't vary mine up much so I use a basic balsamic, sometimes tarragon, red or white wine, or have made my own by popping in fresh herbs and garlic in a bottle and letting it sit for awhile. I actually like using your basic apple cider vinegar too for a few things.

Will be interesting to see if folks have any other favorites.

Do any of you have a favourite vinegar? Do you have a favourite brand?

I've noticed a huge range in prices for my favourite flavour, balsamic. My mom buys one at Costco that I'll have to check out. The price seems to be right and it has a fuller, sweeter taste than any I've tried before.

I'm really curious to try any vinegars that have a fruity flavour.
