    I kept a jug of maple syrup in my dorm when I was in college. A bunch of us would go to the cafeteria for breakfast and get pancakes with no syrup (they only had the fake stuff) and I would bring the jug down to pass around. The servers didn't quite know what to think of it when several of us in a row ordered "dry" pancakes.

    Funny stuff guys. I went out to visit my daughter in Idaho for Christmas and took her yearly 4 quarts along. Well we went out for dinner that evening with a 1/2 dozen of her friends and we were talking about traditions when one of her friends opened her purse and produced a 1 pint flask of her own Maple syrup. She was from Michigan.

    Good work raising your daughter Dr Tim! My daughter just went down to Alabama for university last week and forgot to take maple syrup with her! Almost grounds to be disowned... but my wife is sending a care package so she's stocked for the term. She won't make that mistake again!

    My daughter returns to school Sunday from winter break and is taking a Nu Can of first run syrup with her. She saw the 3 quarts and the Nu Can grabbed it and declared this is mine I'm taking it to school. Good thing that was the plan.
