What does anyone make of this, is it for real? It would be difficult for me to have this in my wallet, of course only if it really smells good like Maple Syrup.

Best regards, sincerely

Mark Carney led the Bank of Canada through the financial crisis with aplomb but, until now, he has failed to answer one monetary question Canadians desperately want answered: Do Canadian banknotes smell of maple syrup?

Of course it does, but only on the $20.

The $50 smells like beer.

You don't want to know what the $1 smells like...

Actually, the new bills really do have a maple syrup smell, but only when they're new. I didn't believe It either, but now I've smelled it with my own nose.

I don't know, but in the US, drug-sniffing dogs go straight for old $100 bills.

I guess one can never convince someone what they think they are smelling, but I do not smell maple on the new bills.
The Bank of Canada has stated that no scent was added and that is proof enough for me.

maybe Jim Flaherty was eating a stack of Buttermilk waffles and got some syrup on the printing press by accident?

Perhaps, but he would of slurped it up before it got out to the masses.

Maybe Mark Carney tried to stop him and that is why Carney now works for the Bank of England and not the Bank of Canada anymore

It explains when the polymer notes Issued by the Bank of Canada first came out why they stuck together so badly at first

From what I understand, people were complaining to the bank of Canada that their polymer notes were losing that maple syrup smell over time.
Evidently, it was a by-product of the printing on plastic process.
However, I find it very odd that it was a maple syrup smell, as opposed to chicken nugget, new car or salmon jerky odours.

I particularly like them as toppings on my French toast. Just like candy apples; leave one on the dashboard of your car in the direct sunlight at your peril.
