Synonyms of "Sugar" and their differences

A: Generally, people try to avoid using "plenty" as an adjective/adverb like in "there is plenty sugar", although it wouldn't be terrible to do so, and "plenty of sugar" is almost always preferable.

As for what you highlighted, "plenty" is also used as a noun if the thing being talked about has already been mentioned so you can say "there is plenty [of milk] in the fridge".

Q: What is the difference between What do you think of sugar? and What do you think about sugar? ?
A: In many contexts, think of and think about are effectively interchangeable...

"They say Greece may leave the Eurozone. What do you think of/about that?"

"I'm thinking of/about looking for a new job"

In other contexts, to think of something means you're at least aware of the thing, but may not have given it a great deal of consideration. If you think about something this normally implies more focussed or extended attention.

"I never thought of doing that!" (that possibility never crossed my mind).

"Have you thought about my birthday present?" (have you considered/decided what to get me?)

Much the same distinction applies to hear of/about. You might say you've heard of something meaning no more than that you're aware "something" exists. But if you've heard about something the implication is you've heard some important/current information about that thing.

"I've heard of Amy Winehouse" (the name is known to me, but I don't necessarily know any more).

"I've heard about Amy Winehouse" (strongly implies knowing of her untimely death).
Q: What is the difference between You must have used too much sugar and You must have used so much sugar ?
A: That should be "You shouldn't have used so much sugar." If you say "You shouldn't have used too much sugar." makes it more explicit that too much sugar has been used, in the first it's just the amount that's wrong, but it's only implied that it was too much.
