You can't always judge a product by its reviews and this would be one of them as many comments stated that the jars we're not as big as they expected however I was pleasantly surprised to find that my leap to purchase anywayour paid off!
This 1/2 Gallon container holds up to 3 lbs of brown sugar, so 3 standard size boxes. I also purchased the 1 Galion and that holds up to 8 lbs of regular white sugar, so 2 standard bags of sugar.
Great jars and I'm so pleased with the quality (nice sturdy, not too thick and not too thin glass) and the price is fantastic and can't be beat any where else. Highly recommended :)
