This just in: Maple Syrup is most recognizable Canadian symbol

maple syrup

Sorry Beavers, Justin Bieber and actors whose first name is Ryan, you just don’t make the cut.

Maple Syrup is the most Canadian symbol out there.

And as Canada’s chocolatier, you can bet we love creatively using maple syrup in our chocolates.

Like our Brown Butter Maple Caramels.

Or Mini Maple Caramels.

Or Canadian Maple Toffee.

Want the full list? Sure you do.

There’s no official story on how or when maple syrup was first invented, but we can all agree that, like chocolate, it’s one of the sweetest inventions in the world.

Historica Canada explains that early French settlers in Eastern Canada learned about maple sap from local First Nations People, and the process of making maple syrup is pretty straightforward and hasn’t changed. You boil maple sap in a pot until it’s reduced to a thick syrup.

So there’s a little bit of Canadian history for you, just in time for you to win the Canada Day trivia game at your house.
