Dare’s Limited Edition Maple Crème

Things I Will Be Putting Maple Syrup On This Canada Day Weekend

The 150th celebration of Canada’s birthday is finally here and, naturally, I am writing about something that is on the minds and hearts of all Canadians. Maple Syrup! All Canadians love maple syrup, right? Well, to celebrate Canada’s 150th year I have secured a bottle of the finest maple syrup in the country and I wanted to share all of the uses I have planned for it this weekend!

Before we get to the list, I want to give this beautiful bottle of maple syrup its due attention. The sap for this bottle was carefully collected from a 125 year old tree by Dare, a 125 year old Canadian company, on a family owned sugar bush in Saint-Sophie-d’Halifax, Quebec. The syrup was used to make Dare’s Limited Edition Maple Crème cookies, which are shaped like maple leafs and available in stores now, and only a small amount of these maple syrup bottles were made from what was left.

As you can tell I take my maple syrup seriously and have already begun planning how I will use this special bottle this weekend. Here are just a few of the ideas I had…

1. Maple Shampoo –

Don’t you get tired of your hair smelling like lavender or spices? Think of how patriotic it would be to have hair that smelled like your country this Canada Day weekend! It’s either this or finding a beaver to carry around with you. This seems like the easier plan to me.

2. Maple Laundry Detergent –

Maybe great smelling hair isn’t enough for you? Besides, why just have great smelling hair when you could soak your entire wardrobe in Canadiana? Just add a capful of this 125 year old bottle of joy to your washing machine and let the magic begin!

3. Maple Sunscreen –

Let’s be honest, summer can get hot here in the nation’s capital and sunscreen is a must. Why have boring old sunscreen when you could have a sunscreen that not only blocks the sun but also tastes great?! (*Note – There is no scientific evidence that maple sunscreen would protect you from the sun)

4. Maple Spaghetti –

You can’t honestly sit there and tell me you didn’t think it was a great idea when Buddy poured maple syrup all over his spaghetti in the movie Elf. Spaghetti Saturday is about to get a lot more fun this weekend!

5. Eating Dare’s Limited Edition Maple Crème cookies, of course!

You can’t enjoy this syrup without tasting the very product it was created for, plus they are SHAPED LIKE MAPLE LEAVES!!! Pro-Tip: If you have some maple syrup left over after all your experimenting, why not use it as a cookie dip?? Just don’t tell the kids!

I hope you all have an amazing Canada Day weekend filled with family, fun and laughter! As a special Canada Day surprise I am also going to give away a Dare Limited Edition Maple Crème prize pack, which includes a special bottle of maple syrup for you to try! Just leave a comment below and let me know what food you would use the special maple syrup on. It can be serious, funny or downright weird and you’ll get no judgement from this guy!

Happy Canada Day!!!

    I’d use it in my ultra top secret “dogs of doom” recipe…

    The Maple is actually key to a good batch.

    That, and a damned good whiskey.

    I would put it on BBQ steak or in a fruit salad with fruit from local U-picks for berries with apples and pears from BC Orchards.

    I would eat a small bowl of it, as a dessert. A piece of buttered, homemade bread to eat along side the maple syrup would make it perfect!

    Seriously? Maple carrots. I love dropping in a bit with a pat of butter and some rosemary on my fresh garden carrots. So good.

    Not so serious? Give me some maple syrup soap for the shower, baby.

    MMM I’d put it in my secret recipe spaghetti sauce. I recommend you give it a try, plus a pinch of cinnamon.

    I would use it on an ice cram sundae with the kids… there is nothing as delicious as REAL Maple Syrup! 🙂

    Salmon! Cedar plank salmon with maple syrup…so delicious.
    I was surprised you did not mention sugaring back hair or legs or…

    Yum!! I will pour it over my waffles, fruit and whipped cream. I would put it in my oatmeal and cream of wheat.

    I would use it on crepes! Nice strawberry crepes with whipping cream and icing sugar and maple syrup! Now I am craving some!

    I already drink shots of Maple Syrup , and have always had maple syrup on tomato sauce filled spaghetti decades before Buddy the Elf did it lol, I would use this gold in a bottle in my homemade deep fried cheesecake and make a reduction with it as a thick syrup for the top on the whipped topping .

    Every now and then I make corn fritter/pancakes made with corn, of course, chopped up cooked bacon, chives, sweet onion, cayanne pepper and montery jack cheese. Mmm… we make these for special occasions and always use real maple syrup on them – not Aunt Jemima. That’s for ordinary pancakes.

    I would use the Maple Syrup to make Maple Fudge! I also like Maple Syrup Poured over ice cream and it turns crunchy.

    I would dip all my breakfast foods in it – eggs, sausage, bacon, toast…. And flavor a delicious lattee!

    Mary Boudreau says:

    Maple syrup is the best. A little bowl of maple syrup straight up is the best. I do use maple syrup rather than sugar as a sweetener when I make applesauce and stewed rhubarb

    This is yummy. Egg o waffle or your own, fry an egg. Put it on the waffle and top with maple syrup. It’s delish!

    I was thinking of putting some maple gold on my freshly baked date squares. But I’ll have to bake another batch when I win this fabulous prize!


    I love Maple Syrup in my homemade baked beans, not sure if “the exhaust” will smell sweeter with this special syrup but I know the beans will be delicious

    We’re huge maple syrup lovers in our family, especially on pancakes, waffles, and over vanilla ice cream.

    I would baste a nice fillet of salmon with the special maple syrup, add a touch of hot spice, and broil it on the BBQ! 🙂

    Dan Boey says:

    I would grab two generous handfuls of crispy hot Canadian bacon (with oven mitts on of coarse) and then head outside to my slip and slide that’s been doused in maple syrup and make a run for it. Needless to say I wouldn’t make it very far but I could lay there and finish off my bacon and bake in the heat for the rest of the day 🙂 ohhh I love Sundays

    I make my own maple syrup so I put it on lots of things. Tonight for example I put it on rainbow trout and peas.

    I would use it on my cedar plank maple glazed salmon, which I usually end up overcooking to the point where it tastes like it’s 125 years old anyway!

    I LOVE to drizzle fresh Maple syrup over vanilla ice cream, pancakes, waffles, brownies, cake, & muffins.
