Re: What kind of syrup do you buy?

I grew up on the cheap stuff, but after visiting some friends at their sugar shack in NH and drinking warm maple syrup for the first time I can't bear the idea of anything but the real thing. It's been 10 years and I'll never go back to the stuff with the HFCS.

Oh, man! I remember Golden Griddle! I LOVED that growing up.

I only give my girls pure maple syrup, and I'm trying to break my Golden Griddle/Mrs. Buttersworth habit, but it's pretty bad. Most times I go without because it just isn't the same.

For dd I usually warm up part of a banana in the microwave. It makes it mushy and very sweet. I actually like it on pancakes and waffles too. We try to avoid HFCS as well!

Re: What kind of syrup do you buy?

I buy the real stuff - I figure if we are going to have sugar it better be the real kind.

However, we usually just put fresh or frozen fruit on ours and we like it just fine.

I buy the real stuff but I grew up on the fake stuff so that is what I actually prefer taste wise.

Re: What kind of syrup do you buy?

My girls didn't have any syrup until they were closer to 3 years old. They either got yogurt or applesauce to dip their pancakes or waffles. I love fresh fruit on mine too. Some things require syrup for me like french toast. yummy. I grew up with the HFCS kind and never had anything different until i was older and went to cracker barrel for the first time. Thanks for everyone's responses.

Re: What kind of syrup do you buy?

i'm cheap. i buy whatever the cheapest kind of "lite" syrup is, and am happy with it. now i'd be afraid to buy the real stuff, for fear that i could never turn back......
