Americans don't often have maple syrup because of the price. I've noticed a lot of my friends and family have only had pancake syrup and think it's legitimate maple syrup.

My favorite thing is to give them real, quality maple syrup, and shatter this façade. It ruins pancake syrup for them. If they can't afford maple syrup on the regular, this might be damaging to their lifestyle, but the people deserve to know what truth tastes like.

FYI maple syrup on vanilla bean ice cream is immaculate, and it's my sweetener of choice for coffee.

I will say that I recently purchased Canadian maple syrup.

...

It's like I've been lied to for decades. I can't ever go back to whatever the hell this "syrup" crap is that I've been eating all these years.

However, I did try Vermont maple syrup and it's not bad either. Certainly a good bang for the buck considering real Canadian maple syrup is pretty expensive.

Real maple syrup... go figure! Tastes amazing but almost feels "wrong" based on how thin it is compared to the turd that was painted corn syrup I ate before.

Great Canadian Maple Syrup Heist

The Great Canadian Maple Syrup Heist (French: vol de sirop d'érable du siècle, lit. 'maple syrup heist of the century') was the theft over several months in 2011 and 2012 of nearly 3,000 tonnes (3,000 long tons; 3,300 short tons) of maple syrup, valued at C$18. 7 million from a storage facility in Quebec. The facility was operated by the Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers (French: Fédération des producteurs acéricoles du Québec, FPAQ) who represent 77% of the global maple syrup supply.
