The Maple Treat Pure Canadian Maple Syrup 1L $15 @ Coles

1630

This was popular when first seen, and it’s now cheaper. Check your local, they may have lots or none. Charles St Coles in Launceston had four on the shelf, by the time I came back to take a pic two had already gone.

If you’re not sure what to do with that much syrup try drizzling over bacon strips then bake slowly in the oven at 160C until crispy.

    Coles seems to be cosplaying Costco, they bring in seasonal products in "huge" sizes and they quickly put them on sale. E.g. the 2kg peanut butter no long ago

      They're not stocking the 2kg oenaur butter anymore??

        Mmm. Sounds like it’s made of dinosaur. Delicious!

    •  

      Is the Costco one more than $15? If it's only a bit more I'd go with the Costco one for the better quality.

    Everybody calm down. It is just a glorified sugar. Fructose to be more precise.

      The correct grammar is: “glorious sugar”.

      Fructose to be more precise.

      I'm not sure what your definition of precise is.

      Maple syrup is typically about 50-75% sucrose, less than 10% glucose and less than 4% fructose

          I like how confident you went in with your earlier comment too. Just makes it that much funnier.

        • +3 votes

          Just remember

          Fructose = Fruit sugar, and Maple tree ≠ Fruit

        What's the rest, water?

        • +1 vote

          Yes.
          Plus the small amounts of what make it maple syrup, things like the flavours, minerals etc.

          •  

            @spaceflight: yep and how far they reduce it (cook to get rid of water) varies between brands, so not all maple syrups are equal , but they are all nicer than some of the maple flavoured syrups made from sugar or corn.

      There is also about 20% other stuff, mostly water probably, but you try adding 0.1% formaldehyde and see what happens to the taste! The dizzying array of random trace things Mummy N sticks in maple syrup (vs golden syrup) is what makes it taste "glorious" (as above)

        There is also about 20% other stuff, mostly water probably

        Actually 96% other stuff because fructose is only about 4%.

          Your thinking of Honey .. once opened a container of Maple Syrup does expire and can get mouldy ..
          12 months if the fridge should be cool!

          • +1 vote

            @Wally: not sure about maple syrup but honey only molds if you contaminate it, always use a clean spoon, honey itself doesn’t mold

            edit: after doing some research it seems maple syrup is like sugar keeps indefinitely unless you contaminate it

      • +1 vote

        The accent?

      •  

        can keep in freezer, it doesn’t go hard due to sugar content, but does thicken. if left in pantry after opening it can get mould on the surface.

    •  

      Ok an expert opinion

    •  

      Aussies think they get gouged on supermarket essentials. Yeah, I thought that as well until I lived in Canada for a few months.

      Everything is generally more expensive with fewer offers on special. $15 for a generic bottle of paracetamol which I could get in Australia for $2.

      Can't be understated the impact of Aldi as well. Generic supermarket brands in Canada aren't that much cheaper than the branded counterparts.

      Dollarama/Dollar Tree pretty much filled the niche that Aldi took here for basic staples.

    Can it get mould if left in panty unopened? Never bought such a big bottle of maple syrup before!

    •  

      someone said you can keep it in the freezer as it doesn't freeze, just gets a bit thicker

      •  

        Yh I saw that… Guess I'll do that instead of leaving it in the pantry! Thx

    my local ww stopped carrying them so I am may need to get a couple packs just in case coles follows. haha

    I scored mine for $4.50 at my local Coles yesterday!

    •  

      $6 a couple days again at my local.

  •  

    Coles in Taroonga Village (Hawthorn, Victoria) had them at $18 when I checked on Saturday.

  •  

    What section should I look for this one? Around honey/jam? (scratch)

    •  

      If you’re going to find any it will be in the Special Buys section as this isn’t a regular stocked item. Most stores appear to be sold out (all my locals are) but you may still get lucky.

    •  

      I see it in Coles Taronga (Hawthorn, VIC) and Coles Middle Camberwell (VIC) all the time and it is placed next to all the other Maple Syrup selections. I think it is the same aisle where you get things like ice cream toppings, Hershey's syrups etc. It is not the same aisle as Jams from my experience though. It is listed as $18.
