Glitter maple syrup exists & your pancakes will never look better

Do you need a glimmer of hope this year? Would you settle for anything shiny? If so, you're in luck, because maple syrup brand Runamok is selling sparkling maple syrup. It's maple syrup infused with golden glitter, which is exactly what you need for brunch at home.

I’m sure you must have questions like “What?” and "Why?" How about? ” and “Why?” ” Let’s start with the basics: Runamok’s Sparkle Syrup tastes just like your typical syrup. Like Runamok’s other syrup options, it’s rich and sustainably produced. Unlike any other syrup before it, it’s packed with sparkling gold flash.

The glitter comes from food-safe nacreous mica. It's completely edible and adds no extra flavor to the syrup. It's purely for aesthetics, you know? It's working. I'm not sure who thought "sparkling" was similar to "magical," but they were right. My little lizard brain will eat absolutely anything sweet and shiny.

Although it won't be available until September 1st, you can pre-order the Sparkle Syrup now. If you are interested, please book as soon as possible. Small batch syrups are available in limited releases only. While you may not be able to buy happiness, you can pick up an 8.45 fluid ounce bottle of sparkling syrup for $16.95, which might be close enough for now.

What might you need sparkling maple syrup for? I'm glad you asked. Of course, you can add them to pancakes and waffles, but Runamok also recommends adding them to cocktails and other drinks to add a little extra sparkle. Some other situations that call for sparkling maple syrup:

  • Eating breakfast during a global pandemic
  • Brunch during a global pandemic
  • Eating ice cream during a global pandemic
  • Making smoothies during a global pandemic
  • Because you want it and feel like it, and, did I mention, a pandemic?

As for "why?" Runamok has already answered this question on the syrup's product page: "Sparkle Syrup was created with one purpose in mind: to make you smile." As Runamok said, life has been serious and heavy lately. Importantly,” the description continues, “we can provide a little bit of whimsy to help everyone smile. "
