It doesn't make sense... till you've gotten used to real maple syrup. There ain't no going back to Aunt Jemima after that.

Pretty much. I've turned into a syrup snob after having real maple syrup.

Good story.....that has almost nothing to do with the theft itself.

Once the thieves top off at about 400 pounds each, they should be easy to spot. and catch.

Its an entirely different syrup bracket.

This is a story that sticks with you.

With all that syrup, I hope they don't try to flood the market. Boston might get flashbacks.

Nice use of tag, subby.

Molasses is not maple syrup.

Sounds like it could be a sticky situation

Came here to see who realized that the humor was in the use of the tag; left unsurprised.

Sounds like someone wants to break the cartel.

I've purchased some on my last trip to Canada, I also had some when I was visiting my grandmother in New England.  I didn't care for it, much too sugary.  Of course the only real alternative is pretty much 100% HFCS.

I'm not sure 'Sappy' is the right tag. Maybe something a bit more refined...

I think you've tapped into something there...

After reading the article, I'm on the side of the criminals.

And a little bit hungry.

My thoughts exactly, I found this link.

Turns out that they rented another portion of the warehouse, and just drove trucks in and pitched the syrup when no one was looking.

Buy grade B. The lower grade has a more robust maple flavor and is less cloying.

If you've never had 'fancy grade' maple syrup (grade A light), you've never lived.

Both have their places. Preferably in a bowl, and some buttered toast covered in cinnamon and brown sugar to dip with.

Syrup production occurs between February and April, on the 20 to 25 days when the temperature rises above freezing,

CANADA!

My wife keeps buying the "real" stuff but goddamn I think I'd rather have the cheap Aunt Jemima/Hungry Jack colored corn syrup. To me it just tastes much better

Perhaps a little too corny...ahem...sappy to get.

Put more butter/margarine on what your eating when you use the maple syrup.

The corn syrup crap has butter flavoring in it as well.

As long as this doesn't affect my ability to buy a nice jug of real maple syrup from Costco for $11.99, I'll be OK.

/Saw the same jug at Albertsons today with a different label for $22.49
