Would You Rather? Honey vs. Maple Syrup Eick November 12, 2007 Would You Rather? 5 Comments 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.

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. Reply Eick November 12th, 2007 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?” Reply Ruca Bangs November 12th, 2007 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. Reply shatraw November 13th, 2007 correction, nothing is better than a hot dog boiled in a big ol’ vat of sap as it separates into syrup. Reply Tessa Grant October 26th, 2012 Maple syrup is okay, but I love honey so much. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
