Canada Releases Almost Half of Their Strategic ... Maple Syrup ... Reserves

No, this isn’t The Babylon Bee.

Canada taps into maple syrup reserves to deal with massive shortage : NPR

This is a seasonal process though, as maple sap can only be harvested in specific weather conditions. So, this year's short and warm Spring resulted in an uncharacteristically low yield for producers.

"That's why the reserve is made, to never miss maple syrup. And we won't miss maple syrup!" said Helene Normandin, the Quebec Maple Syrup Producers' communications director.

While it's hard to predict what next year's crop will look like, Normandin said they were already planning for the future.

"What we can figure at this moment is maybe the season here in Quebec will start a bit earlier in February, instead of March, and end earlier also," she said.

Eat your waffles now, I guess, while you still can.
