100% (although, I love the "other" kind, that's what I grew up with). But we also try to avoid HFCS.

I voted for the maple, but I also use brown rice syrup. It's great and a good source of b vitamins. Tastes wonderfully on all pancakes, waffles, french toast, cornbread or just off the spoon!

I've never heard of that. Where do you get it?

Re: What kind of syrup do you buy?

We love the 100% pure maple, but since money's been tight, we've started making our own. My recipe is:

Grandma's maple syrup

1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup water
1/4 tsp maple flavor

Bring to boil. Boil 3 min. and cool. Viola...done! It's acually pretty good. I'd rather have that than the cheapo HFCS stuff (it reminds me of snot )
