    I did not know there was a black market for maple syrup. I just get mine from Trader Joe's.

    Plus one to Trader Joe's: one of the few places I can find the more flavorful Grade B syrup. Everywhere else is the light amber Grade A, which I do not like as much.

    You poor soul. Splurge, next time you're in the grocery store and buy some. You'll never go back to fake!

    It's almost worth a military take over of the Great White North to get all that maple syrup those rascals are hoarding up there.By the time it crosses the border we get the 10% crap unless my son in law sneaks the good stuff past the Mounties in Burncouver.

    Also counterfeit stuff out there. At $40+ a gallon and faked for $4 a gallon, you could make a ton of money:

    I prefer nothing over the fake stuff. It's extremely thick and almost gloopy, too sweet and the flavor isn't even close. I'd compare it to a nice single malt scotch vs well whiskey. I've probably had fake stuff less than 5 times in my life, but I also have a geographic advantage.

    Vermont's syrup is better anyway. Everyone in Vermont knows someone who makes it.

    $40 a gallon is a good price. I pay $20 for a 32oz container and that's the most economical I can find in a local store.

    I like this, too. When I don't have my own apple butter, I have found that the best commercial apple butter out there is the Wal-Mart house brand spiced apple butter. I have tried pretty much all the brands available in the Seattle area, and there is none better than Wal-Mart.

    If you want to PM me your addy, I'll mail you some Amish Apple & Pumpkin Butter if you like it. Delish.

    This thread is making me want to buy a waffle maker & indulge in some syrupy goodness.

    Does real maple syrup carry the NWA seal of approval?

    $40 is a local price (no shipping). To save on shipping you might try buying maple cream, same flavor but the consistency of peanut butter (real stuff, not skippy).

    You can order it online from dozens of places. Shameless plug: http://www.morsefarm.com/

    I actually like the mulberry or raspberry Hammer gel on my pancakes. Good stuff, Especially if you put it in a cup of hot water before you open it up. Makes it a bit more runny.
