For those who don't know what I'm talking about it's pretty much downhill ice skating with jumps....Google it for full effect but the real life result ...
... tried all the varieties of maple syrup (light, medium and dark amber), some maple butter (which is not actually butter as it is still only pure maple syrup without any diary added but the syrup has undergone more processing..I believe additional heating to a higher temp and then cooling to a specific temp before whipping), some pure maple sugar grains, a crumb of stropwaffle with maple syrup filling and some maple infused tea. Oh it was delightful....in any shape or form. Thankfully we ...
