What do you think of a restaurant that charges $2 extra for real maple syrup (as opposed to the Mrs. Butterworth's)? I was very surprised to see this at a well-known Chicago restaurant recently. I didn't end up ordering anything that required syrup, simply because I didn't want fake stuff or to pay $2 extra.
 
Thoughts?

I experienced this at Wishbone in Chicago. A restaurant I didn't like the one previous time I went in 1997 and like even less after this experience in October.

I don't like it, but I guess it depends on where you are.  If you're in a maple syrup-making area (Vermont, Minnesota, Quebec), then I think the real thing should be served without additional charge.  If you're not --  well, I'd rather they be upfront about it.  I'm allergic to something in the fake maple syrups and if that's all they've got, I have to take a pass on pancakes or waffles or eat them without syrup.

I think it's a bush league move and wouldn't frequent the restaurant. Heck, mark up the item a buck or two (just don't let me know). Next thing you know they will be charging extra for butter. I say BAN margarine and Mrs. Butterworth's.

Quality maple syrup is expensive...I either have it sent from Vermont, or buy it locally.  I dislike the idea of paying for it, but do so to enhance whatever I am eating...and not ingest some chemical crap version with 85 ingredients in it.

I agree that the flavor difference between real maple syrup and the fake stuff is distinct and radical.  However, I'm also left with a bad taste in my mouth over paying extra for a good quality product a restaurant should be serving in the first place.  The solution, as stated above, is to serve real maple syrup and raise the price on the menu item a little bit, spreading out the cost among all the diners.
 
I've been a big fan of Wishbone for more than 20 years.  I've always felt they served a top notch product, sold at a reasonable, but not cheap price, so I'm surprised this is even an issue with them.

Most Independent Restaurant owners are poor marketers.
Turn a negative into a positive.
Build  the difference between fake & real stuff into the price of the meal and then shout to the rafters that you're serving REAL Maple Syrup with your meals.
Most consumers will think they're getting a good deal.
Perception is everything in marketing your product.
Ask them a week later about the meal and all they'll remember is " That place served REAL Syrup and boy was it good".
How much did you pay? - "I don't Remember"
The value is remembered long after the price is forgotten.

I am not sure that the producers of maple syrup can charge enough.  It is enormous work and the end product is just a fraction to the total amount collected.  I do not know how they make a profit.  The end result of real maple syrup is exceptionally delicious.

I don't order flapjacks or waffles if they don't have maple syrup. And if they want to charge extra for it I order something else. There is one exception. At the Waffle House, when I order one of my semiannual waffles I use honey instead of syrup.

Some places include that cost in their pricing.  If they don't, however, as a big maple syrup fan, I will pay a little extra for the real thing.  If they don't have it at all, I use jam or marmalade with butter.

I would be influenced by the way the syrup is served. If you get a bottle or pitcher of maple syrup so that you can use it as lavishly as you please, I wouldn't be too annoyed by the charge. If they give it to you in just one or two itty-bitty cups, then I would pass.

Virtually no restaurants in Southeast Pennsylvania provide real maple syrup. The exception used to be cracker barrel-a chain, and it was the main reason we would occasionally go there(their pancakes and french toast were acceptable) However, in the last couple years they moved to a blended syrup which, if I remember corectly is 55% maple and 45% non-maple(the percentages are in small print on the little glass bottles they bring to the table), so we go much less frequently
 
  My 80 plus year old Dad solves the problem by bringing his own maple syrup to his favorite breakfast places. They don't mind- why should they, it saves them syrup costs.

I don't recall ever seeing real Maple syrup in a restaurant, not even Cracker Barrel, except on the Minnesota North Shore at a couple of restaurants and the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum's annual pancake breakfast at the end of Maple syruping season. You would know if you knew the difference. One problem with real Maple syrup is it is really not all that syrupy and soaks into pancakes. People thus pour way too much on until the pancakes are saturated and then sits on top. We can't leave it to our grandkids to put their own on.
 
I produce my own and just get enough for holiday treats. I started with 5 Sugar Maples a few years ago but now I have at least 8 I can tap now. I've nurtured those trees from saplings 35 years ago. It is not cheap when you have to collect and boil down as much as 40 gallons to get one gallon of syrup. Quality can vary as well from year to year. Here is my "Tonkawoods" brand from a few years ago compared to an Archer Farms organic product.

It's really a non issue to me.   I don't get  "the principle of the the thing" on this subject, now if a restaurant in say....northern New England completely removed real maple s yrup off the menu- that would be a  different story. My gripe is restaurants that always seem to remove the coolest (to me) item off the menu and keep the stuff on that I couldn't care less about .

I think that's pretty much the point I was getting to. Would you pay extra at a steakhouse for 28 day dry-aged beef over regular steak? Kubota pork over regular pork? As long as they give the option up front I have no problem. Now if they tell you this WHEN they bring the pancakes, thats a different story. For me, it's worth a few bucks for the real thing----I can taste the difference.

As it is exceedingly rare to find 'real deal' maple syrup in restaurants, we just take some of our own.  The most flavorful, Grade B syrup is always available at Costco and Whole Foods for $16 - $18/quart - which is, for us, at least a six month supply.  Before we go out for pancakes or waffles, Mrs. Metro simply pours a few ounces into a small jar, puts it into a baggie, and carries it in her purse.

I think I come down on the side of agreeing to pay more for the syrup. It's not really the same thing as the artificial..and the aged steak vs unaged  steak discussion points that out....or a burger made from 70% lean vs a sirloin burger.
 
And this is from a guy who the world owes about $80,000!  I drink my coffee black, no sugar.  I seldom get cheese or anything else on my burger. I NEVER EVER use steak sauce on my steaks (although marinating is nice), Hot dog afficiandos would despise me for ordering them plain.at least the first time (I want to judge the dog first). My baked potato may carry butter...but nothing else. My beloved Fried Clams have never ever ever ever seen some tartare sauce. If a lemon is served I might use it(really a silly thing with clams since the citrus was originally to help break up fish oil on other fish..,.but I like the taste contrasts sometimes).
 
 In the UK and France, I believe, McDonalds charges for ketchup.
 
Of course, I pay the same price for all of the above as the folks that get that stuff "loaded", so I guess if they are gonna charge extra for REAL maple syrup ( and it damn well better be Real Grade B).then I also should get a discount/rebate for all the things I eat "naked".

But their syrup is as thin as water. 

Here's the "why" of the real deal.

That "real deal" is a crock. All pure Maple syrup should be produced in pretty much the same way in boiling down sap until it is syrup. The only difference in Grade A and Grade B is a visual determination in color and usually sap later in the season will produce a Grade B. Also, all Maples and even Box Elders can produce sap for Maple syrup. The best, meaning the ones with the highest sugar content, come from the Sugar Maple which I have in my yard to produce syrup. Also, you have to have the right weather of freezing night temps with day temps rising to 40 degrees. That's why there is a narrow range of Maple syrup production from Minnesota to Maine, Kentucky/Virginia north and eastern Canada. That organization reads like an organization just trying to justify Grade B which is technically no different than Grade A but being darker starts to look like Log Cabin syrup. Why they are talking about the other high corn fructose syrups mystifies me. They are not pure Maple syrups. And all pure Maple syrups are as thin as water as I previously mentioned. If they are thicker, then they are adulterated.

I love maple syrup and have been known to carry my own to restaurants (IHOP, Waffle House, etc.).  I won't eat pancakes or waffles without it.  If I were in a place that charged extra for real maple syrup, and I didn't have my own on hand, I'd pay it.  Would I rather have syrup from a tree or a laboratory?  I should think a tree.

There really is no abundance when it comes to the maple syrup supply.

I had so many fun & interesting field trips throughout NYC but a maple farm an hour away from NYC gave me a lifetime respect for maple syrup.

I would never expect maple syrup to be served in a manner like it flows freely in any way. The season is short the weather factors are uncontrollable critical & the yield is a fraction at the end of the day.

It's a treat... it's worth it to me (I love pancakes waffles & syrup) & I don't care how they do the math to arrive at the same number. I would personally never arrive with it in my handbag. No way!

It makes sense to give people the option not to have it if they don't want it in the first place. The restaurant owner or manager also has to answer the call when people start complaining that the price is so expensive for an order of pancakes because it automatically includes maple syrup. There's no parallel comparison in cost between milk/cream butter/margarine & pancake syrup/maple syrup.



Many places serve maple syrup in this area. When it's included it's at least $8 an order. Same goes for pancakes in Vermont @ a nice place.

Wishbone has the base price of an order @ $5.25 + $2.50 optional extra charge. The other way would be right on par with what many other places charge. All depends on a nice or cranky mood. Syrup bottle is half-full or half-empty.

Well thought out response, CC. I still don't see anything wrong with bringing your own syrup. I don't see how you are cheating by doing that. I am one who often eats pancakes with margarine or butter so I would resent having to pay a charge for a product I could pass on if necessary. You are right about it being a luxury item.

For me, the pancake/waffle experience is ruined when served with lab-contrived, chemical laden syrup.  Plus, if I furnish my own real maple syrup, the restaurant makes a little more money.  I pay for the food and coffee, and they retain their syrup supply.  Waffle House, IHOP, and Pancake Pantry, etc. love to see me walk in the door (especially after they see the tip).

I gladly pay more for real wasabi.  It's $150/lb for fresh roots. (rhizomes)  The green fake stuff you get with 99.99% of your sushi is about $4 for a 4oz jar of powdered horseradish with color.  That price discrepancy is huge.  A sledgehammer to your profit margin.

Completely agree.  If I'm going out for a cheap breakfast, I'm not expecting real maple syrup.
 
Heck, I have two bottles of syrup at home.  One for the kids, one for us.  Why?  The kids could care less and pour it on until the pancakes/waffles are swimming.  I'm not paying for 2/3 of the syrup to go down the sink.

 I have seen additional charges for the following items in the last two months:
 
fresh squeezed orange juice
 
maple syrup
 
homemade pasta
 
blue cheese dressing
 
homemade bread
 
baked potato, instead of fries
 
Texas toast
 
 
Most of these items require extra labor, extra cost , or both.  I see no problem with it.  In fact, I love being able to choose what I really want to make the meal more enjoyable to me. If I am going out to eat,  I want to enjoy it  and not quibble or complain over any extra charge.

Daydd: cant the "thin as water" syrup be further reduced down (and ergo thickened) via heating to produce further water evaporation?

Actually no. It reaches a certain point and it can then instantly flash over to hard brittle sugar. Not bad tasting. I've had it happen. You basically boil until the temperature reaches 217F compared to water at 212F in the altitude where I live.

Brings up a question....I remember as a little kid eating maple candy in the shape of a maple leaf. Have you ever heard of it or seen it around? Also, I really taste a difference between A & B grades. I used to live in NH and have tasted a lot of syrup.

Pancho, that maple-leaf-shaped candy was known as maple sugar candy in Massachusetts, where I grew up. And I loved the stuff, especially given that it was only an occasional treat in our family. My brother and I would ride our bikes the primitive shortcut way (sadly destroyed when Rte. 495 was created) to the Old Country Store in Mansfield, where I would buy maple sugar candy and a big cellophane bag of Wise buttered popcorn. Then, on the next rainy day, I would curl up reading a book and slowly savor part of the candy and popcorn. Yup, that's how rare a treat it was.
 
By the way, there were two kinds of maple candy:  the 100% maple sugar kind, and the blend of maple sugar and cream. I actually liked the flavor of the blend better than the pure sugar type (which also cost more).
 
In response to the OP, I would either pay the upcharge for real maple syrup, or do without any syrup at all. At the bare minimum, I want to know if the restaurant serves real or fake. One thing that always occurs to me when they only serve the fake stuff is, "What else is mediocre or poor?" Maybe they skimp on other ingredients, too.

Interesting, I had no idea
 
Is it that the remaining liquid isn't water (and if so, what the heck is it?), or is it that the water remaining at that point is sucked inside (I lack the proper word(s) here) sugar crystals?
