You don’t hear much about Golden Syrup outside of Great Britain, and even there you’ll almost exclusively find the brand Lyle’s, but it is well loved across the pond. It’s about 25% sweeter than sugar and is made from cane. It has a butterscotch and toffee flavor. the Brits like to use it in the flapjack, which is a bar cookie, not a pancake. It IS great poured over pancakes however!! It is also called “treacle“. Ever heard of the movie “Brimstone and Treacle”? If you’re a Sting fan you might want to check it out!
