Where to get Golden Syrup

Apr 16
If you've got an hour, you can make your own. All you need is sugar, water, and a lemon.

... or dark treacle.

I saw it at Mrs McGarrigle's in Merrickville last week.

There's definitely a supply problem. I used to see it all the time at Walmart and Bulk Barn, but not anymore.

For Lyle's, the Scottish & Irish store (either Robertson in the West or Innes in the East) would be the place to go.

Does anyone have updated information on where to find Lyle's Golden Syrup these days? I usually buy it at Westboro Superstore but they don't seem to carry it anymore. Couldn't find it at Loblaws on Merivale either.

FYI- I was in Giant Tiger on Wellington and they were clearing out golden syrup at $1 a bottle.

What I need the Golden Syrup for is Scandinavian gingerbread, so the flavour is really important. Out of desperation, I have substituted maple syrup, which is great flavour wise, but it is not viscous enough.

thanks for the vendor suggestions.

rizak - it actually tastes very different. lyle's golden syrup has a carmel/honey taste too it, but it isn't as thick or creamy as carmel. it is thick like honey and not smooth pouring like corn syrup. it is also made from sugar cane instead of corn & glucose (corn syrup).

you could substitute corn syrup for lyle's, but you would lose some depth of flavour. this may or may not matter depending on the recipe.

Isn't this just corn syrup, either white or golden?

Just bought some from the Superstore in Westboro--with the pancake syrups and such.

Golden syrup is also wonderful on oatmeal.

The Scottish and Irish store in bells corner has golden syrup as well
