Which Grocery Store Aisle Is Molasses In?

The second place to look is by the maple syrup in the breakfast food aisle. This is not an uncommon place to find it.
It could also be in the natural food aisle if you have one in your grocery store. If you're not finding it, refer to our store guide below. These places are sure to stock molasses...
