Until today. I was raised on that corn syrup pancake stuff. This morning I finally had real maple syrup on my pancakes. You know, its yummy! Much thinner and not as "heavy" tasting as the fake stuff. Possibly a little less sweet. I didn't have to pour on so much either. That corn syrup is so think you end up with more than you need by the time it comes out of the bottle fast enough. I only waited so long cause it is somewhat pricier. But I am trying to eat a little healthier so the extra cost should be worth it occasionally. I am 49 and I am addicted to corn syrup. I am now in recovery.
