You can bet I stocked up.
No wonder! You are at the source! Today, 75% of the world's Maple Syrup is produced in Quebec, Canada

Meh ...... practically everything MAY cause cancer, even entirely natural substances.

No, that's a really good liquidation price, even for here. I've seen similar small bottles of syrup with whole vanilla pods for about $10.
ETA...just found one online for $15.

A number of friends and co-workers do maple syrup. If you ever get a chance to visit a working sugar house, you definitely should go. You'll get a better appreciation for the foods you consume and the amount of work it takes to produce it. The smell is fantastic and doing a shot of warm maple syrup on a cold day is wonderful.

My neighbors just tapped their trees and made their own syrup a few weeks ago. I am going to help them next year and learn the process. I can't wait

The flavor is fresh berries.

On French Toast my favorite topping is butter, a little fresh lemon juice, and powdered sugar.

I don't think maple syrup is all that good. I have a bottle of the stuff in the fridge that has been there for six months and will probably be there until I throw it out.
That sounds absolutely delicious!! We used to do simular when I was a kid.

I make homemade pineapple syrup(making some today)...I make homemade dehydrated pineapple chunks with fresh pineapple, sprinkle some sugar on them to help pull the juices, drain well, squeeze a little extra juice out. Pineapple goes in dehydrator, and juice get cooked down to thicken it some. Sliced bananas and pineapple syrup, YUM!

Judging from the flavor, maple syrup is a blend of fructose and sucrose. It's actually the sucrose that is bad for you. Fructose is not only sweeter, it doesn't cause the insulin spike that sucrose does.

I haven't eaten "pancake syrup" in decades.

I only use real maple syrup, preferably made locally in my corner of NYS.

I have it maybe once every month or two.

I do not get the appeal of Pancake Syrup. I like 100% Real Maple Syrup. Not this goop that they give that is made with maple flavoring and HFCS and sugar and other kinds of sugar. Just disgusting and too sickly sweet for me. Now I'm craving pancakes.

The appeal is actually quite simple - NOT watching my kids dump $20 worth of syrup on their morning Eggos because a 10 year old doesn't quite grasp the "less is more" concept.
