First, you're all gonna get the diabetes. And second, if it don't come from Vermont, it ain't maple syrup. ... fucking canucks.

At Tesco (supermarket chain here) they have "maple flavoured syrup" Confused I don't even want to try that one, though it is only 3 euro or so.
The one I have, nearly empty after 3 month now, 330 gramms (don't ask, I don't know) looks like about 250 ml, that was the 8 euro thing.

American imperialist pig! Quebec, La Belle Province, produces the majority of the world's maple syrup - 10 times as much as those backwoods hicks in Vermont.

I picked up a hitchhiker from Quebec who’s touring around NZ yesterday morning…

Yeah, and it's about a tenth as good.

Switching to serious:
I've had syrup from Massachusetts, Vermont, Quebec, and Ontario. They're all good - it really depends on the producer, not the location.
