About the Holiday

National Maple Syrup Day celebrates the sweet treat we typically put on our pancakes and waffles. Did you know that the Native Americans were the first to make Maple Syrup? Not surprising, since North America is the only place it can be made.

And, making it is not easy as timing is everything. The sap only "runs" for a 2 to 3 week period and once the maple tree buds, the sap isn't good anymore. It also takes a lot of sap to make maple syrup, so be sure to enjoy every sweet sticky bite. In addition to pancakes and waffles, maple syrup also goes well on ice cream too.

When celebrating, look for Pure Maple Syrup on the label, or you may not be getting the real thing!
