You grow up with a certain taste, you like a certain taste. In my household, the real maple syrup is still sitting on the shelf, waiting to be used.

Already bought into this deal earlier this week lol

If you buy Aunt Jemima syrup you deserve to have your Canadian card revoked.

At least they labelled it "Table Syrup". The only thing it's good for is to give it to the kids so they can spill it all over the table. This is not intended for human consumption and would be a waste of your pancakes.

please don't buy Aunt Jemima / table syrup

it's pure, total, absolute crap... made from high-fructose corn syrup, it's the fast way to diabetes

get the good stuff, REAL maple syrup! Not only this will encourage local Canadian producers, your body will thank you.

edit: of course, maple syrup is still sugar so use sparingly

I grew up on this stuff. It wasn't until about 10 years ago that I finally had maple syrup. There's no going back. No contest :) One of those big $10 bottles from Costco lasts us quite the while.

It's pure sugar. Very very bad for you. Not maple syrup. Real thing cost like $10-15 bucks.

Whether or not you consume tree blood, bee spit or ground up sugar cane, it's all sugar. Your body will not thank you any more eating one versus the other; it's junk food. Enjoy it for what it is, a flavoring.

A Canadian who posts a deal on fake Maple Syrup should be ashamed of themselves! LOL!!
I used to think that but real maple syrup is too watery and too strong for some things. My wife makes amazing French toast using cinnamon and vanilla; maple syrup really clashes with those two ingredients and it makes the toast way too soggy (French toast already leans that way to begin with).

BTW, thanks OP. It's a great deal even at $1.97 since my local Superstore usually has the Aunt Jemima for $3.49.

I have had the same AJ syrup in the cupboard for over 10 years and it still tastes the same. Does this stuff ever go bad?

I believe it comes with a preservative filler, but I'm not sure if it's listed on ingredients.

Sugar is a fast-release carbohydrate, this is loaded with it. It will compromise your health if consumed in persistent excess (diabetes, metabolic syndrome, heart disease, etc.).

Typically, stuff this sweet on its own would never go bad (from micro-organisms, UV light and oxidation is a different story), since the amount of sugar would literally rip the water out of micro-organisms and they'd die. The issue with this is that any evaporation and condensation at the top of the bottle could stratify the goop so that you get a watery layer on top, which micro-organisms could live on. If you don't get that (and typically you'd get that if you take it in and out of the fridge, leave it in the sun, etc) then it'll probably last forever.

When I was younger I used to always make my own sugar syrup. Equal parts water, white sugar, and brown sugar, boil for a bit and cool, good to store for a month or so. Id always throw it on the stove before prepping pancake batter, and it's ready to go when your pancakes are made (as long as your okay with leaving your pan outside in the snow to cool)

Tastes just as good as aunt Jemima in my opinion, a lot cheaper, and no preservatives or arifitical colours.

A 750ml bottle of aunt Jemima has 400g total of sugar, which is about 40c worth (sugar costs about $1/kg, often cheaper).
Savings: 86% (from regular price of $3)

That's essentially what 'golden syrup' is (well minus the brown sugar) and is what the British use by the boatload. We make it all the time since a lot of their recipes call for it and it's almost impossible to buy here. You're right, it's super cheap.

I appreciate the diligence, but how much is your labor worth? These sound like tips and tricks from the depressionary 30s.
