I looked at the SF Maple Groves today and it, too, has sorbitol!

I haven't received my ED Smith order. I'm thinking about picking up some berries and having them on French toast this weekend. I think I'll try your idea, Blue -- add some cinnamon and sweetener to them. Mmmm!

I like Cary's sugar free pancake syrup. It has a good consistency. I rarely eat it though because I don't like pancakes and very rarely eat waffles/french toast. I don't think I have ever tried real maple syrup!

So I tried the yogurt thing this am. I thought I had maple extract but I didn't..will have to pick some up for next time. Instead I mixed some Davinci's caramel syrup (it has Splenda) and some pure vanilla extract into the plain nonfat yogurt and drizzled it over the mock pancakes. It was good. Just enough flavor to satisfy. I will definitely do it that way again.

When I was first diagnosed with diabetes I tried a bunch of different sugar free syrups and I found three that my whole family likes.

1. Cary's Sugar Free syrup (30 calories per 1/4 cup) It is the least expensive and is in my cubbard right now, so I could check the calorie count. Rate: 8

2. Mrs.Butterworth's- usually more expensive than Cary's, so I only buy it when on sale or I have a coupon. Rate: 8

3. Cracker Barrel Sugar Free Syrup- The nearest Cracker Barrel is about 20 miles away, so I only get this one when I am doing other shopping in that area. Rate: 10

I tried other brands and find them either to thin, or just not maple syrupy (is that a word?) enough.

Thanks for the reviews, Diana! I'm still awaiting my ED Smith syrup from Cananda -- it takes forever to get a shipment from there! But next time I'm at Cracker Barrel, I'll pick up some of their SF.

I really like Cary's Sugar-Free Syrup it's thick and has a really good taste to it. I found it right in my grocery store.

Guess what! Cracker Barrel's SF syrup is made by Maple Grove Farms. You can probably find it at your local grocer, Diane.

So the consensus is Maple Grove Farms is the best SF pancake syrup.

Maple Grove Farms Maple or Butter flavors - they're both great. Log Cabin's sugar-free isn't too bad, either, but MG's is cheaper and a bit thicker.

I finally received my order for ED Smith SF pancake syrup from Canada. It's definitely the best tasting SF syrup I've ever tried, but then I haven't tried the SF versions of Mrs. Butters-worth, Maple Grove Farms, etc. I'll probably give a couple of these a try before ordering again. Two bottles shipped from Canada set me back $30. So if I can find an alternative here in the States, I'm all for that. Anyway, I did enjoy diet French toast this morning!

I am a type one diabetic and I only use Howard's, since the sugar alcohol is lower in this syrup than any others. It comes in a smaller bottle than most other syrups, but your not supposed to use a lot of it.

Thank you for the information about Cracker Barrel's being made by Maple Grove Farms. If I can find it closer to home it would definitely save money in gas.

You must really like it to travel for it, Diana! I'll definitely pick up some next time I'm at the store.

I've never heard of Howard's.
