I was never a huge maple flavor fan before. Suddenly though, I can't get enough of it. I made a special trip to the store just to get these for this photo shoot and to pack with our kitchen stuff and smuggle some syrup up back to the states.
Something about Canadian maple syrup just tastes better than the lady-shaped caramel-colored corn syrup I grew up pouring on my waffles. I also got this:
Which I've never had before but I'm sure is delicious.
Also, I'm bringing back some of these little maple leaf shaped candies.
Other current flavors I'm obsessed with are anything:
and maple encrusted.
I will gladly wash them down with a maple porter...
Or a maple milkshake or maple latte or just a full glass of pure maple syrup. Okay, maybe not that last one. Too rich.
I also love this giant maple tree in our backyard and the squirrels who live in it.
In the fall, I loved the multi-colored maple leaves it dropped onto our deck.
I even love seeing Maple Leafs like this all over town...
And this maple leaf too will always have a special place in my heart.
