Top 10 Things Canada is Famous For

The Top Ten
1 Maple Syrup

Yes, it's sweet like honey. Its sugar and flavor are natural because maple trees store sugar. It's smooth and silky-textured, with a sweet, distinctive flavor - hints of caramel with overtones of vanilla.

It's also used in many dishes to achieve this sweet-sour-salty taste: meat (pork ribs), salads, and often in bean dishes, etc.
