    Default Misleading packing of syrup

    Went to a local grocery store today and found this on the shelf.

    Quart of maple syrup and right beside it a pint of "pancake Syrup"

    Both in the same style of container.

    Very misleading if I say so myself.

    A year or two ago another manufacturer did the same thing, did they not have to take it down? I can not remember.

    Geez... That is very misleading. Both products by the same company too. I am surprised that they got away with it, or will be very surprised if they do not have to make a change.

    Thank is what I was thinking.

    I was trying to think who contact that can tell me if this is allowed?

    Obviously 100% pure maple syrup is "waffle syrup" according to the packaging. lol

    That is crazy!

    I think that the maple police should be all over this. Do you have a maple producers association in your area that could address this? I know that is this was in VT it wouldn't have even made it to the store shelf and if it was in NH there would be a big backlash if it did. Start the fight if it hasn't been started already.

    Wow, I've seen some squirelly stuff on the shelf but that is by far the worst offender. Organic as well none the less......

    Outrageous.

    It wouldn't do any harm to also rattle the source.

    I don't see the problem. Both jugs are labeled properly. It's just a company trying to cater to all customers. As long as the shopper can read there should be no problem.

    I'm with you Spud, everything seems to be correctly labeled. It would have been nice if both were the same size and therefore closer in price but otherwise, I wouldn't have even noticed anything. At least it's not high fructose corn slop.

    But, I wouldn't sell a quart of my syrup for only $16.99 and I'm not classified as organic.

    Most stores sell this junk. I posted pics before. People REALLY do NOT know the difference. I volunteer at our co op. I try to explain. Only those that care to listen will do so. The shop carried fruit "infused". Syrup for the holidays. High prices and from what I understand pretty awful.
