Yeah. Table Syrup, Pancake Syrup, etc. are all names for what's basically flavored corn syrup.

You've never heard of Aunt Jemima?



And until they gave her a makeover, it was (and maybe still is) a horrible African-American stereotype.

If it'll go with the flavor of what's in the pancakes, you can use a sweet wine instead of water/sugar. For pancakes, though, I think plain sugar water would be best.

"Y'all want some pancakes?"
"No thanks!"

I thought tabacco meant there was fake maple syrup. Table syrup isn't maple flavoured as far as I know. Syrup is just sugar and water.

When did Aunt Jemima stop looking like a character from Song of the South? I don't buy those products so I was unaware of her makeover until now!

Although making pancakes from scratch is a piece of cake.

It happened quite a few years ago (I can't remember exactly). There had been a lot of complaints about her Song of the South look.

Actually, there is fake maple syrup. Some pancake syrups are in fact maple flavored

I still haven't forgiven Kelloggs for renaming "Coco Pops" into "Choco Krispies" for no apparent reason...


...to add to this frustration, I discovered that they are still called "Coco Pops" in France!

That's my childhood memories they are messing with there! What if I am talking to my little cousin and she doesn't know what "Coco Pops" are, because they are called "Choco Krispies" these days? Evil!

That's what's known as a marketing gimmick. They did it so that people would complain and they could then hold an internet-based poll to ask whether it should be changed back. As a result, it changed back to Coco Pops in the UK a few years ago.

And I'm grateful, because "Because we'd rather have a bowl of Choco Krispies!" really didn't fit the tune they've used for years .

They did that over here too, but there was public outcry, and we got our Coco Pops back. Go people power!
Kellogs have some stupid marketing people.

Well, I didn't use the Internet back then. It was several years ago, I believe when I was about 10 years old. 12 years at most. That's 9-7 years ago.


I just keep on calling them Coco Pops, and my sisters and everyone my age knows what I mean by that. Hah!

It makes more sense too. After all, the monkey is called Coco, and not Choco.
