I've got something to say

This morning while eating pancakes I finally recognized a fact I have known for quite some time: I don't like real maple syrup.

I'm not sure if that makes me crazy or not.

I opted for Safeway original syrup (ingredients: corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, water, 2% maple syrup, and some other stuff) over Spring Tree 100% pure all natural maple syrup Grade A dark amber.

I have tried other 100% maple syrups and have felt "meh" about them as well.

So what's the deal? Why am I a fan of the corn syrup?

I've never had real maple syrup, but I picture it not tasting good. My favorite kind is Albertson's brand low fat syrup.

I am of the opposite opinion. I will ONLY eat real maple syrup. There are few opportunities for a common man such as myself to feel like royalty, and real maple syrup is one of them. Three-ply quilted T.P. is another.
