Why does white sugar smell terrible? (Or is it just me?)

I bet it is the container. Take it out and keep it in a bag and see what it smells like. Sometimes containers can pick up strange smells. I went to my parents house once and they poured me a beer into a glass that had been in the freezer. I took one taste and thought the beer was totally rancid and tasted like fish. Well it wasn't the beer it was the glass since the freezer stored shrimp and fish, the ice had picked up the flavor! No more freezer glasses. :(

Maybe it's the container?

I definitely prefer the smell and taste of brown sugar. I have a big container of white sugar and it smells like old socks or something. Very off-putting. My boyfriend agrees. I suppose it's just us, unless sugar can go bad?
