Compare also the average 30-40 units mel4 in syrups...

with one hundred seventy-freaking-four units in regular normal Pepsi.

Then compare how often pepsi drinkers drink pepsi, with how often pancake eaters eat pancakes.

I'm thinking syrup is barely a blip on the radar, in comparison.

I also hope our life insurance company doesn't suddenly start asking my husband how often he drinks pepsi. (answer: around 24 ounces every day, more on weekends)

I very rarely use syrup, but when I do it has to be 100% real maple syrup. I would NEVER use the sugary, maple flavored fake stuff, ever.

I would never use anything except genuine maple syrup. There is nothing else like it. You can get the lower grades and they're a little bit cheaper and maybe even better than the grade A.

This year's syrup batch is out--they've just had sugaring season so it's time to go to a farm that has it for sale. That's one of the good things about living in the northeast (don't ask about the weather here )

Only maple syrup (100%pure)

OR what we called "stuff" when our boys were little.

Stuff= If we had no maple syrup, I'd heat up a little butter (2 tbst), add a little milk 1-2 tbsp (canned gave it a nice flavor) and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Heat and stir for a while until it boiled up and got thick. (watch it doesn't burn) The boys loved it on pancakes or dipped their toast in a bowl of it.

Another favorite in lieu of maple syrup if we didn't have any: open a can of sweetened condensed milk. Delish on pancakes and toast.

I'm not a fan of syrup. But if I was choosing what to use, it'd be a berry syrup.

True. We lived next to a couple that had custody of their grandson. He was allowed to eat Cocoa Puffs every day, for every meal. McDonald's chicken nuggets were considered "healthy" for him. That is all he ate, literally, for the first ten years of his life. He had to undergo two major dental surgeries by the time he was ten years old and his grandparents just shrugged it off. They thought it was strange that our children at fruits and vegetables even as toddlers. Kids eat what they are given and it would never occur to me to throw food I didn't want across the room as this boy did. I would not have been alive to even share this experience. ;-)

Granted, his risk of becoming a menace to society is probably greater than the cancer risk in eating syrup, too.

Yep...time for sugaring-off.
Crepes, feves au lard, sausage, cretons, tourtiere, pea soup, roast potatoes, bacon and Christ's Ears, all eaten with strangers at community tables groaning with maple syrup and listening to fiddle music. Then horse-drawn carriage rides and hot maple syrup on snow.
Lots of fun.

Gotta love the positive-minded saints in our society .

Cell mate: "Hey you!!! Why'd you get locked-up???
Kid: "Uh... Cocoa Puffs and chicken nuggets."
Cell Mate: "Aw man - you're one rough dude!!!!"

On the rare occasion we do pancakes and waffles for the masses (all the wife's friends and kids) its pure Quebec maple syrup all the way.
My Mom for some reason doesnt like syrup and instead drizzles sugar and lemon juice over her pancakes.
