    I have pancakes and waffles! I love authentic maple syrup. My granddaughter (one of them) calls it Maple Syruple!

    That sure was a lot of syrup.

    Fire up the griddle! Much of a huge cache of maple syrup snatched from a Quebec storage facility has been recovered, police say.

    Three people have been arrested and five others are being sought in connection with the theft from a warehouse in Saint-Louis-de-Blandford, Quebec Provincial Police said in a statement Tuesday. The theft occurred between August 2011 and July 2012, police said.

    Two-thirds of the syrup was recovered, according to a police statement. The Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers, which bills itself as keeper of the global strategic maple syrup reserve, said in August that up to 10 million pounds of the sweet stuff was in the warehouse from which the theft occurred but could not say exactly how much was missing. The total value of all the syrup in the warehouse was put at $30 million.

    GLOBAL STRATEGIC MAPLE SYRUP RESERVE? Two-thirds were recovered. I wonder what happened to the other third? I never did trust that Mrs.Butterworth. I bet she's the maple ring leader.

    Well, this is one sticky case, and the ring leader, Flap Jack, is still on the loose with four of his breakfast cohorts. Be on the lookout, Websleuthers, for Flap Jack, Mrs. Butterworth, Butter Patty, Orange Julius and Cuppa Joe, as I believe they’re our five escapees! Check all grocery outlets, even Weekly Sales, they can’t have gotten far! Not with all that maple syrup.

    Then again, if the Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers cannot say exactly how much is missing… could this also possibly be a frame up of the above breakfast items? I’d also watch for the sudden rise in the price of maple syrup. Hm…
