However, now imitation maple flavored syrup --which contains no maple whatsoever-- is also available as a cheaper and easier to produce alternative. Oh, sure, you scoff at the imitation stuff, but if you had the choice between that or choking down a stack of dry pancakes, you wouldn't be so particular.

Arrests made in massive Canadian maple syrup heist



MONTREAL Police in Canada say three people have been arrested in connection with a massive maple syrup heist from a Quebec warehouse, which put a dent in the global supply.

Quebec produces up to 80 percent of the world's maple syrup.

Authorities never disclosed the exact amount of maple syrup stolen in August. But the warehouse contained Quebec's maple syrup reserves, which were supposed to hold 10 million pounds valued at $30 million.

Those arrested are scheduled to face charges Tuesday of theft, conspiracy, fraud and trafficking in stolen goods.

Police also have seized vehicles suspected of being used in the illicit trafficking of the syrup.

The Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers said in August that it discovered that the syrup was missing during a routine inventory where empty barrels were found at the site at St-Louis-de-Blandford, Quebec. Officials initially kept the news quiet, hoping it would help police solve the crime.

Anne-Marie Granger Godbout, the executive director of the federation, said that while it isn't unusual for individual maple syrup producers to have stock stolen, having millions worth of syrup stolen is "unusual."

"It's the first time something like this has happened," she said at the time. "We've never seen a robbery of this magnitude."

She said the disappearance of the stock wasn't obvious at first in the huge warehouse. The facility alone houses nearly the equivalent of half the entire U.S. production of maple syrup in a year, she said.

"The U.S. market is the main market for maple syrup, about 75 percent of Canadian maple syrup is directly exported to the U.S.," she said. She noted the theft was particularly ill-timed after a disappointing 2012 season for U.S. producers, triggering more demand for Canadian syrup.

Looks like a great way to leave this world. "Black leather and red my favourite color combination". Anyone know the song?

That's funny and I might have agreed but I'm having a personal Apocalypse at my house.
The main drain line from my house is broken NOTHING, as in nothing, is getting out. Tomorrow morning I get the privilege of going to rent a camera to put down there to see what size backhoe I need.

I had a pipe collapse going from my old house to the tank, unfortunately I was poor and had to dig it up by hand and fix it myself. Finding the collapsed section was no fun! I hope it goes well and its an easy fix.
