Cary's Sugar Free Maple Syrup Review

Carys Sugar Free Maple SyrupI've never really bought into the whole maple syrup on pancakes deal. To me, its too sweet, too full of calories, and just screams out dessert instead of breakfast. So I've been content all these years to top my stack of pancakes with some berries or any seasonal fruit and just call it a day. While out to breakfast recently, I saw Cary's Sugar Free Maple Syrup and while being somewhat hesitant, I poured it over my pancakes.

Although the taste was pretty good for a sugar free product, it was still too sweet for my pancake tastes. Still, I was determined to give this baby a fair shake. Where else could I find a use for it? In oatmeal! I whipped up a batch of banana oats, and, in lieu of my usual brown sugar to sweeten it, I added a drizzle of this syrup. Pure heaven. Excited, I decided to try it on my other dishes that I customarily add a little brown sugar, namely sweet potatoes and squash. Yum! I clearly had found a winner.

Each 1/4 cup serving of Cary's Sugar Free Maple Syrup provides 30 calories, 5% of the daily value for sodium (115 mg) and 12 grams of carbohydrates - 11 grams of sugar alcohols plus 1 gram of fiber. The ingredient list isn't my favorite, Water, Sorbitol, Cellulose Gum, Natural and Artificial Maple Flavor, Salt, Aspartame, Citric Acid, Caramel Color, Sodium Benzoate and Potassium Sorbate, Acesulfame Potassium, but since this is a "fake" syrup, I didn't expect much else and for the calorie savings, it's worth it.

I purchased a 24 ounce bottle at my supermarket for $2.69. It lasts me about a month, used almost every morning on oatmeal, which is not bad at all. I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone looking for a bit of sweetness in their morning breakfast!
