Log Cabin Syrup – Review & Giveaway

Log Cabin SyrupPancake syrup is a staple in our house.  Mainly because we have an old family pancake recipe that is to die for.  The recipe comes from my husband’s side and he grew up on them.  Therefore, whenever he makes breakfast, we have pancakes.  My boys love them, so of course we always have syrup on hand.  I’ve been looking for healthy alternatives to regular syrup, because of the high fructose corn syrup and calories.  We’ve tried light syrup and although it doesn’t have the calories, you sacrifice taste, and the consistency isn’t as thick.  I was excited to learn the Log Cabin has recently reformulated their syrup by replacing High Fructose Corn Syrup with natural sugar.

Pros:  I like the idea that it is formulated with natural sugar.  Even though sugar isn’t always the best thing to put into our bodies, it is MUCH better than high fructose corn syrup.  I found a really great article at The Good Human on high fructose corn syrup vs. natural sugar.  An exerpt from the article reads:

From what I understand, high fructose corn syrup is a bunch of corn syrups that have undergone a process to increase their fructose content, thus making them sweeter. The reason you see it in everything from soda to cookies to energy bars is that real sugar can be expensive and it is much cheaper to use HFCS as a substitute. Plus it has a longer shelf life than sugar, making it even more attractive to food manufacturers.

You can read the rest of the article here.  I’ll get off my soapbox now about sugar and give you the lowdown on the syrup.  The taste was actually very good.  It still has the same rich flavor as regular syrups, and that classic Log Cabin design.  We tried the original syrup at our house, but it also comes in sugar free and lite.  It also comes in a very generous 24 oz bottle, and I found it for under $3 at a local retailer, so it is competitively priced as well.

Cons: The consistency is runnier than normal syrups, it reminds me of the consistency of light syrup.  I didn’t realize this when first using the syrup and completely saturated my pancake.  It also still has a lot of sugar and calories, but then again it’s maple syrup.  I’m interested in trying the lite syrup and think I will pick up a bottle next time I’m at the store.

Remember how I mentioned above that we have a fabulous buttermilk pancake recipe? How about I share it with you? (As you can tell, the recipe card has been treated with love and has some pancake grease that won’t come off 🙂 )  Try it though, you won’t be disappointed!pancakes

The Bottom Line: Great new formulated syrup, has the same great taste, but is a bit runnier than original syrups.

Price: Around $3 for a 24 oz bottle

    Our favorite is taking a box of Betty Crocker Blueberry Muffin Mix; preparing mix as directed and adding 1 cup of flower to the mix. Truly makes the greatest pancakes in the world.
