I've always gone for honey on my pancakes.

    Only butter for me.  I've NEVER been a sweet tooth and syrup -- especially not-pure-maple -- has never appealed to me.

      I've made an adult decision that I won't ever eat pancakes again. Just say no.

          I'm with you! Just lather those puppies up with good quality butter! Any kind of Syrup is just too sweet for me.

            I actually dont like pancakes, rarely eat them. But IF I do, I like a little pure maple syrup if nothing else but to coat the bacon along side them.

              Pure maple syrup for me.  There's something in "fake" pancake syrup to which I'm allergic -- maybe sulfites. 
              I once had an anaphylactic reaction to it at a very upscale hotel dining room in Washington, DC which was too cheap to serve the real thing.

                  My number one choice for syrup on anything is Vermont 100% pure fancy grade maple syrup (the one that is the color of honey and has a delicate flavor).  If I can't get that, my second choice is real blueberry or strawberry syrup, which is why I voted for Fruit Syrups.  Since there was no choice of grades or states-of-origin on the 100% Maple Syrup, I wouldn't pick that one, since I can't stand a dark brown grade B strong tasting pure maple syrup.

                    Simple answer for me, 100% grade A Maple syrup and I make my own tapping Sugar Maple trees in our yard. Most of the time we have settled on one pancake mix that is somewhat healthy as pancakes can go and surprisingly tasty. This is the recipe.

                          I order genuine maple syrup from a small farm in Vermont. I prefer the "Vermont Grade A Dark Amber" for it's true maple flavor.

                              This subject reminds me of a TV interview with the manager of the legendary Pancake Pantry (one of my old haunts) in Nashville.  He boasts that they make everything from scratch, even their maple syrup!  The somewhat surprised host, Dave Lieberman, asks how you make maple syrup from scratch without tapping a tree...and got an answer!

                                I live in New Hampshire, and even tap my trees.  I think they'd deport me if I used anything but maple products on my pancakes (which technically, I use more than just maple syrup, I also like to dust them with maple sugar).

                                    Davydd: The food at Pancake Pantry is WONDERFUL, but I always took my own maple syrup.  Yes, I got stares, but my pancakes tasted better than anyone else's!
                                     
                                    Kaszeta:  I'd never object to a dusting of maple sugar.  I only wish I could get maple here at the prices you pay there.

                                      As a kid I had allergic reactions to the preservatives and such in pancake syrups (like Golden Griddle), so it has been, since then, only pure maple syrup. Also, I had sugar issues, so that stuff was out on that basis as well.
                                       
                                      Pure maple syrup is not nearly as high in sugar content as pancake syrups.
                                       
                                      Unfortunately, most fruit syrups, are just simple sugar syrups with fruit flavor. Often, loaded with preservatives. So, thev'e been out, too.
                                       
                                      I've grown out of most of my childhood issues with preservatives, but because of it, will only eat the pure stuff, because that's what I've grown accustomed to.
                                       
                                      Costco, sells 100% Grade A Dark Amber - made in Canada (probably Ontario Prov). It's good. And price is excellent compared to the same product in stores.

                                        Pure maple syrup is not nearly as high in sugar content as pancake syrups.

                                        True given equal volume but both are pretty much fat and protein free and mostly all carbohydrate (sugar) and water. So it depends on how much you use. Pure maple syrup is much thinner because of more water content and no artificial thickeners and will soak into pancakes more readily. You could conceivably use more to satisfy your mostly visual need.
                                         
                                        My Sugar Maple tree sap boils down to Maple syrup at about a ratio of 28 to 30 to 1. Other variety of Maple trees can take up to 40 gallons of sap to make 1 gallon of syrup because of sugar content in the sap. Unfortunately you can't boil down to make it thicker like corn syrup because in a matter of seconds it will flash over to pure hard Maple sugar.

                                          right, it's lower in sugar, so it is better for me than pancake syrups. It's also preservative free. And free of other chemicals that are used in pancake syrups like Golden Griddle and Log Cabin, Aunt Jemima, etc.

                                            My pancakes have to have a touch of butter and syrup.  I grew up on Golden Griddle, so it's either that or any other syrup.

                                              Pure maple syrup is not nearly as high in sugar content as pancake syrups.

                                              True given equal volume

                                              You guys sure of that?  I had no idea but it seemed to me they should contain about the same amount of sugar, so I checked nutrition labels online.  Looks to me that maple syrup is much higher in sugar than pancake syrup!  I don't understand why that would be.

                                                It's also preservative free. And free of other chemicals that are used in pancake syrups like Golden Griddle and Log Cabin, Aunt Jemima, etc.

                                                Glad to see you, too, are  trying to avoid preservatives, emulsifiers, thickeners, artificial flavors, colors, and other nutritious lab chemicals.

                                                  What I said. Maple syrup is nothing but sugar and water. Pancake syrup is nothing but sugar and water and additives. Given equal volume, say a teaspoon, I am pretty sure pure Maple syrup just has a higher water content being much more thinner liquid unless the pancake syrups are just artificially doctored with thickeners. Corn syrup is much cheaper than Maple syrup so I would see no why they would use less. Nevertheless, sugar is sugar. I can't compare definitively because my jars of homemade Maple syrup have no labels.

                                                    My preference is real butter, fresh lemon juice, and powdered sugar

                                                        I love a place like IHOP which has several types of syrup on the table. I like to have each of my pancakes with a different syrup.

                                                          which, for me, is even more important than the sugar.
                                                           
                                                          @Bilmes: it's also the type of sugar. while on a carbohydrate chart, the sugar may seem equal, they act differently in the body. Corn syrup v. honey v. maple syrup act diufferently.
                                                           
                                                          The high-fructose corn syrup companies wouls have you believe that on a molecular level there's no a dicernable difference, but those who study the effect of ingredients, drugs and other things we intake into our body, will tell you that we all process food differently. For my nephew, he can process all sugars easily and there isn't a discernable difference for him on what type of sugar he intakes. For him, high fructose corn syrup is the same as fruit, or maple syrup, or corn syrup or "natural" sugar. For me, my body processes different sugard differently. It's not in my head. It's been diagnosed. I avoid certain methods (types) of sugar creation.
                                                           
                                                          It may be related to the way my body also processes artifical products -which for others is not a concern.
                                                           
                                                          So, when I say, "for me" I realy mean it. Other people do not have the same processing issues, and in some ways, I thinkg Golden Griddle tastes better - the same way fake boobs look better than real saggy boobs. It's fake, but fake done right. On some levels I've grown out of some if the issues of my youth, BUT, I can still feel the difference in the food I eat and the way my body is processing them.
                                                           
                                                           
                                                          PS The fake boob part was a tongue in cheek analogy. Don't be offended. Just horsing around a little.

                                                            That's right, maple sugar is almost all sucrose, similar to table sugar (which IS all sucrose).  Honey and HF corn syrup are almost entirely glucose and fructose.  Regular corn syrup, like Karo dark and light, is glucose.  Very different digestion properties.
