We go through syrup like its going out of style. My kids love pancakes and waffles so we have them all the time. Sometimes we have jam on them but most times its syrup. So I recently decided to try making my own. Its even better than the store bought stuff as most things are. Its sweet, mapley, and it doesn't get thick like the store bought stuff which is a plus in my book. My kids would've drank it I let them, but its basically just sugar so that's not a surprise really. Ha. Make it, you wont regret it!
