The Maple Syrup Scandal

Ya’ll! Seriously! I had no idea due to the fact that Cody and I don’t eat anything that requires maple syrup often.  However the other week I made Paleo Pancakes and so we went to the store.  I grew up on Mrs. Butter-Worth’s so immediately went for that and when I turned the bottle over (as any health conscious person should) I was personally insulted.  This woman has lied to me my whole life! By the way, Aunt Jemima is a liar too.  There isn’t even maple syrup in the ingredients! AT ALL!  Have you ever seen a full grown woman throw a fit in HEB about maple syrup? You don’t want to, trust me.  So I did some investigating and here we are…

Guys! Corn syrup! CORN SYRUP! Not the same thing at all.

More lies, more corn syrup, more bullshit.  I can’t.  I need to check my heart rate monitor.

And now for the saviors and these are just a couple…

 

One ingredient. Just one. And that is maple syrup. Hallelujah!

Moral of the story: read the labels. You’ll be surprised about what you find. Also, people look at you odd when you cuss at syrup in public.
