    I didn't know about x being a robot. He's pretty good for a prototype.

    Also, YooHoo does indeed contain chocolate and milk, so I am not sure what is so fake about it. Unless we're having a Cartesian debate about what is real and what is not, in which case YooHoo is most certainly real.

    We didn't even know it existed until Couch stole yours. Now we have to take the word of you two as fact.

    Good to know. But I imagine that robots have little fear of mouldy [sic] syrup or spoiled milk (why else YooHoo?).

    This is balderdash and poppycock. YooHoo is probably far more available in PA than it is here on the left coast.

    In terms of natural languages, I only know nonsense. I don't know either balderdash or poppycock.

    So the new Cdn $100s smell like maple syrup? What do the $50s smell like? Back bacon? Cretons? Poutine scented $20s?

    Real maple syrup, FTW. We live spare, but real syrup is one of a few things we do not scrimp on. Oddly enough, the worse the grade, the better the flavor -- we like Grade B whenever we can get it, bolder maple flavor, and cheaper than most Grade A stuff.

    On occasion, I've made my own. Lots of work for not much output. Sad, when a week's work results in maybe 2qts of syrup. Gladly pay high prices for store-bought stuff.

    I think this is great. Scented money. Yet another security feature to make money more secure.
    And another security feature the U.S. won't use because of "tradition."

    Screw tradition. If smelly plastic dollars save us money and make them less prone to counterfeiting, I'd be all for it.

    Asa usual Canada is w-a-y ahead of the US!
    Get rid of paper money and replace it with plastic/maple scented money!
    We are still waiting for the US to get rid of those copper pennies that cost 3 cents to produce.
    Maybe we can import them thru Wallmart from China?
    Real maple syrup . . . you mean there is another kind?

    I can find Grade A maple syrup at all the stores up here. Grade B, never. And how I wish I could. I have had it and I greatly prefer it over Grade A.

    I've noticed that our local stores have what they call real maple syrup. It is in small bottles and much more expensive than the fake stuff. I haven't bought any to try yet so I don't know how real it is. I was going to recommend that you guys that are missing the stuff or have never tried it should go to your local grocery store and look for it. If somebody buys some and tries it, let me know how it is. Also I'm sure that you could find pleny of places in new england that would ship it to you.

    Trader Joe's has Grade B here. I think Costco might have it, too.

    I get Trader Joe's organic Grade B. It has a bit of a coffee aftertaste, which is yummy.

But real maple syrup doesn't smell like that. It is unfortunate that it is so expensive.

    I like pancakes and waffles, I eat them with honey and butter.
    The corn-syrup-based stuff is nasty. But I think 1 cup water, 1 cup granulated sugar, 1 cup brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of Mapeline artificial maple flavor make pretty good syrup.
