"I visit a lot of photostreams now and then and out of all of them, he has the most unique photographs. It amazes me how many pictures you can take and regularly update all revolving around one theme! Keep up the great work!"

"Photography always involves travel. Time travel, viewing other worlds and perspectives, internal travel, and much more. But with Chad's photostream you get a bit EXTRA! He shows us his travels to other countries, the many many things he sees and cherishes, as well as his many talents! And he keeps our sweet little buddy SUGAR right next to us along for the ride! Now thats travellin' in STYLE!! Thanks Chad, you're great! :)"

"I am so glad to have Chad as one of my contacts! He is so awesome, regularly visits and comments plus takes some super fun photos of his own! Check out his website www.sugarpacketch... and I guarantee that you will learn a LOT about sugar that you never knew. We take this item for granted every day but like salt it has an amazing history.
Thank you Chad for being who you are and not giving up on yourself. I am proud of you too and glad to call you a friend!"

"Chad is the most amazing sugar collector on Flickr !!!
His photos are really artistic and funny, and they make people smile !
They also inspire me a lot !
I admire Chad 'cause I could never have a sugar collection because I wolud eat it ! :-)
Chad made a website about sugar and I really love it, there you can find everything you need to know about Sugar !
He's also a musician like me, and I think that sweetness matches perfectly with music !!! - Vanilla Bear :-D"

Eddy Westveer says:
"This sweet guy has an amazing collection of sugar related parafernalia. And as a matter of fact you find sugar and sweetness in his whole Flickr-collection. His favourite maxim is: be nice to the world and you will receive sweetness! You might even be lucky and get an Official Garden Gnome Award!
And thanks for sharing the Doughnut Supplementations!

"sugarpacketchad -- first of all has the most original name I've come across in a long time.
What brought me to his photos was the one he had of the men working high above on what looks like steel girders. I have a fear of heights and looking at those photos quite honestly made me dizzy.
And his love of sugar and the creativity he shows in packaging the product is phenomenal."
