It will probably come as no surprise to most that Trader Joe’s has 100% Maple Syrup (no high-fructose corn syrup, of course) and Organic 100% Maple Syrup (No HFCS there, either).
But I was surprised to find it for about half the price the super-market sells it for. I have eliminated HFCS out of most of my diet (that I know of), but it’s not always easy when you have a child. Especially if that child likes pancakes on occasion.
I had always found the price of real maple syrup prohibitive. But I’m happy to report my find today at Trader Joe’s, and that I brought home a bottle of it in my grocery sack this afternoon. I am very happy about this!
Increasingly, it seems that Trader Joe’s has nearly every type of item you would find in a regular grocery store with the exceptions that it is better quality, healthier, fresher, less expensive, and the staff is down-to-Earth, friendly, and happy you are there!
I guess I’ll make a new category on High-Fructose High for “Raves.” And this post about Trader Joe’s gets to be the innaugural entry!by
