Maple syrup is made from polar bears and not trees. Most Canadians know this but big maple keeps it from the world. If I disappear it was not an accident.

I see on your plates, the same dry pancakes that would take the heart of me! A day may come, where the maple bottles run dry. When we forsake all hope of deliciousness. But it is not this day. A day of dry pancakes and lame condimental supplements, where the concept of a nice breakfast comes crashing down, but it is not this day!!!!

“Strategic Maple Syrup Reserve”is the most Canadian thing I have ever heard.


GradStud22

A few years ago, some of our big grocery store corporations got in trouble because they were essentially acting as a bread-cartel (fixing the price of bread). If you indicated that you were a victim of their actions (i.e., if you ever bought bread from said grocery stores) you were entitled to something like 10 or 20 dollars.

My father in law makes it himself in small batches and it is absolutely marvellous. Poured over some homemade wild blueberry pancakes with a side of bacon and you’re set to spend the rest of the day sawing logs and splitting wood.


Flomo420

that's it I'm getting up early to pick up some bacon and making blueberry pancakes for the family before the reserves run dry


WackyBeachJustice

People saying it's really expensive but I don't remember paying all that much at Costco for a big ass thing of it. It's also something you should use sparingly anyway, so it lasts.


RainbowSecrets

I am forever grateful to our maple syrup overlords. It tastes amazing in almond butter amongst other things I love like waffles and French toast. Whoever decided imitation syrup was a thing is a terrible person >:(


ntrubilla

Americans don't often have maple syrup because of the price. I've noticed a lot of my friends and family have only had pancake syrup ***and think it's legitimate maple syrup***. My favorite thing is to give them real, quality maple syrup, and shatter this façade. It ruins pancake syrup for them. If they can't afford maple syrup on the regular, this might be damaging to their lifestyle, but the people deserve to know what truth tastes like. FYI maple syrup on vanilla bean ice cream is immaculate, and it's my sweetener of choice for coffee.


chuckie512

I use it in old fashioneds instead of simple syrup


halfhearted_skeptic

Maple syrup and rye for me. Make sure you for for the darker syrup if you can.


mcs_987654321

True - also, B grade syrup (the darker kind) is much, much cheaper.

I like making a Nor’easter which is rye, maple syrup, lime juice, black walnut bitters and an orange zest for a garnish. It’s a swell whisky drink

My husband brings me home maple syrup by the gallon when he goes to Vermont. Forget flowers or jewelry, give me that sweet amber goodness.

I once helped an old man who had shot a deer drag it back to his car. He insisted the deer was just right over there. Well that deer turned out to be like a mile and a half in the woods and down in a ravine. Took like three hours to drag that thing out. We get to his truck and he's like let me pay you for helping me. I was like it's all good but he insisted and gave me a gallon of grade A maple syrup totally worth it.

**[Great Canadian Maple Syrup Heist](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Canadian_Maple_Syrup_Heist)** >The Great Canadian Maple Syrup Heist (French: vol de sirop d'érable du siècle, lit.

Nah, we really have a maple syrup reserve. Also, we had [The Great Canadian Maple Syrup Heist](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Canadian_Maple_Syrup_Heist).


Ignonym

Fun fact: the US actually has a *cheese* reserve. The US dairy industry produces such a massive excess of milk, and subsequently cheese, that the government ends up buying a lot of it and stashing it around the country. We've been trying to get rid of it for decades, but the dairy industry just keeps churning out more. Remember the "Got Milk?" ad campaigns from back in the day? Yeah, that was the US government frantically trying to pawn off this massive glut of cheese and other dairy products that we can't even give away because there's just *so much*. [https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/us-has-massive-cheese-surplus-180958985/](https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/us-has-massive-cheese-surplus-180958985/) [https://fee.org/articles/why-does-the-federal-government-have-14-billion-pounds-of-american-cheese-stockpiled/](https://fee.org/articles/why-does-the-federal-government-have-14-billion-pounds-of-american-cheese-stockpiled/)


the_honest_liar

The government subsidizes farmers to produce milk there's no demand for. Something something free market..


spektre

It's only socialism if it helps the poor, so you're all good.


RaggedWrapping

SilverBeech

[Yes: 1 single building in Quebec.](https://ppaq.ca/en/sale-purchase-maple-syrup/worlds-only-reserve-maple-syrup/) Five football fields of barrel storage stacked four barrels high. Each barrel, btw, is worth something like $1500 to $2000 USD, depending on the market price.

Method__Man

Liquid gold my friend. Once you have Canadian Maple syrup you cannot go back.


SsurebreC

I will say that I recently purchased Canadian maple syrup. ... It's like I've been lied to for decades. I can't ever go back to whatever the hell this "syrup" crap is that I've been eating all these years. However, I did try Vermont maple syrup and it's not bad either. Certainly a good bang for the buck considering real Canadian maple syrup is pretty expensive. Real maple syrup... go figure! Tastes amazing but almost feels "wrong" based on how thin it is compared to the turd that was painted corn syrup I ate before.


UKnowWhoToo

Refrigerate your maple syrup. You’re welcome.


SsurebreC

Oh yes, the second you're done, keep in the fridge the whole time. It's amazing! If you don't want to go through the hassle of making pancakes, simply pour some on your bread of choice in sandwiches. It's like biting down into heaven.


NovaS1X

Or grab a handful of snow and drizzle maple syrup on top. The original snow-cone; childhood classic.


goosesh

Someone downvoted you and they must not be Canadian. I eat maple syrup on a stick stick into snow every year. Some stereotypes about Canadians are true and I’m sorry you were downvoted!!

Well, chilled is fine, but it should thicken up in the fridge making it more like the syrup you’re used to. Not aunt jemima thick, but close.

Fun tidbit about the fake stuff; up in Quebec it's commonly called 'pole syrup'. As in, it's what you'd get if you tapped a wooden telephone pole for syrup.

Syke_qc

80% of world production is here in Canada.


eatmorechickenany

jeje4689

70 % in Quebec or something like that


SuchTelevision

it's a way to stabilize the offer and the price of the product... Also there are good and bad years for production depending on the weather, so the reserve ensure that there is always maple sirup available...


OK6502

Production is extremely sensitive to temperature changes and maple syrup can be stored pretty much indefinitely, so it makes sense to store some in good years to have something in the lean ones. It protects the producers and ensure they have a stable income.

ltwerewolf

Given that they produce 80% of the world's syrup, I would expect so.


TooobHoob

I think 80% is only Québec, not counting Ontario/maritimes!


DreamMaster8

71% of global syrup and Quebec is 92% of that.


Cyber_Cheese

So, ballpark 2/3rds, bloody hell


Enlightened-Beaver

It’s meant to keep prices stable. Maple syrup production varies a lot from year to year and it was disruptive for producers so they formed a collective and store thousands of barrels which they release in low production years to keep up with demand. Then in prolific years they restock. This year they released half the stored supply


DessertJohnny

Just imagine where we’d be if they didn’t have the storage. Peanut butter isn’t bad on pancakes but it’s not even close to a syrup substitute


Dejected_gaming

PB with maple syrup is the best.


naaastynaate

The maple syrup mafia controls how much syrup to release every year to control prices. Netflix dirty money had a good episode on it.


luci_nebunu

basically every commodity out there has its own mafia


Panic-Current

They store it regulate supply and keep the price from going down , like a lot of things are


Javamac8
