Alas my love of Vermont basketball and a busy weekend shattered my goal of 5 straight days of Would You Rather? questions.

However, today, two days late, I deliver the promised 5th question. From this point forward, expect to see about one new question a week…no more waiting a month in between questions. This next question was suggested by a reader, and I figured I’d run with it.

Would You Rather?

Option #1: You can never eat honey again.


Option #2: You can never eat maple syrup again.


As a Vermonter, born and raised, this is an easy one for me, but I’d like to hear other people weigh in.

Things to consider: pancakes, waffles, french toast, peanut butter and honey sandwiches, honey brown beer, honey nut cheerios, honey bunches of oats, honeycomb cereal, drinking tea, maple sugar candy and sugar on snow.

    I would never be able to give up the maple syrup. The REAL stuff. Some people think Log Cabin counts. Nope. My family lives on top of a mountain in Vermont, and my dad helps his neighbor bottling syrup during sugaring season. He sends me back to VA with gallons at a time and not a drop goes unenjoyed. Yum.

    I’m with you on the importance of the “real stuff” i.e. 100% maple syrup. That was all I ever had growing up. When I tried Aunt Jemima in college, I thought, “what is this crap?”

    Yeah VT!!!!

    We used to make our own syrup for years, but then us “sap-carriers” had to leave for skoolin’.

    Nothing is better than fresh, hot syrup right off the pan. NOTHING!!!! It is the nectar of the gods.
