My kids eat enough pancakes and waffles to make it a necessity to buy real syrup even though we are on a REALLY tight budget. I scored a big jug on sale at Shoprite last month reduced from $18.99 to $12.99 & wished I could have bought more but we didn't have enough $. That was MapleGrove Farms brand.
We have family in VT that we see periodically but even buying local there, I didn't get that great of a deal. Our Northern NJ farmer's markets carry the same stuff from VT & NY that our stores carry & the prices aren't any different.
I would prefer to be able to buy it somewhere that will allow my EBT Snap card too.
