Top 10 Things Canada is Famous For

The Top Ten Things Canada is Famous For

1 Maple Syrup

I would eat this with pancakes or waffles everyday if I could!

@Martin_Canine - 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 widely used in Canada - a great ice cream topping because it's similar to caramel topping; pancake topping instead of honey or chocolate. In our grocery stores we have yogurt with maple syrup. It's also used in many dishes to get this sweet-sour-salty taste: meat (pork ribs), salads, often in bean dishes, etc. - Metal_Treasure

The maple syrup is so good.

Its best on pancakes
