Taste of Home Names Anderson’s Maple Syrup Best Budget Maple Syrup 

“But just because Anderson’s is affordable doesn’t mean it sacrifices flavor. This deep amber syrup had the perfect consistency for drizzling over slices of French toast. Flavor-wise, this syrup has a well-rounded flavor” 

March 2022 – names Anderson’s Maple Syrup Most Splurge-Worthy: 

“Not all maple syrups are created equal. We only want the best of the best topping our perfectly fluffy pancakes! That’s why we’ve tirelessly taste tested more than a dozen brands to bring you the cream of the crop. You can thank us later—right now we need to walk off this sugar high. 

Surprisingly enough, our favorite maple syrup came not from Vermont—but Wisconsin! This family operation has been around since the 1920s, so clearly they’re doing something right. Their maple syrup isn’t just sweet, it’s complex. We tasted hints of vanilla, orange, and cinnamon. Your pancakes deserve the best, right?!

My family loves waffles. It is our go-to breakfast item that the kids are excited to eat before the school bus comes. We have them as part of a fruit, waffle, sometimes sausage, breakfast before school. And your syrup as a MUST have topping. What makes me so happy though (besides HAPPY picky eaters) is the quality of the syrup we have found with Anderson’s Maple Syrup!
Add an even happier morning for me, mom, is that your bottle design allows for easy pour and NO mess! That just makes my morning with one teeny-tiny less obstacle and I smile at the bottle because every pour is simple and clean. So thank you!! I never write comments but I noticed myself smiling at your Anderson’s maple syrup bottle one too many times when I close the lid.  I just had to say something.


Your syrup is by far the best I’ve ever had. My kids agree and say things like “this sure isn’t Anderson’s” when we run out and I buy a different jug of maple syrup at the local grocery store.

The maple syrup is superb.  But then there is the apple syrup which is spectacular !!! I use both for not only sweet applications – ie: pancakes, cornbread, rolls – but also for savory applications – ooh, pork roast with apple syrup rub, maple roasted carrots. And so it goes. Thank you for being there and doing what you do!


I was shopping for pure maple syrup . There were many options available, until I read the label on the back. Many were a product of Canada and the US. Still others had coloring or additives. Then I found Anderson’s.  Family run businesses in the good old USA mean a lot to me. I bought, I tried, I loved. Thank you, Anderson family. You have a new loyal customer in New Jersey.


We enjoy our pancakes and were a tad shocked to read the ingredients on the cheap syrup we normally use. We decided to try Anderson’s Pure Maple Syrup and honestly WOW! What a difference! Fantastic quality and taste! Super simple ingredient. No going back now! We get it!


I wish to tell you that once we tried Anderson’s Pure Maple Syrup, there has not been any other in this house! Caring for four grandchildren five days a week, I have become a stickler for using foods that are as non-processed as possible. I grew up with Aunt Jemima and until I began reading labels, it would be on my breakfast table, but not anymore. Thank you for a quality product that is the ‘real deal’, as my husband calls it. We will continue to enjoy it as long as I am putting french toast or waffles, etc on the table.


My husband had a stroke a few years ago and it affected his taste buds. He saw your syrup in the store and decided to try it….loves it. This is the real deal and he said it reminded him of the Maple Syrup he had at his grandparents. Happy customer thanks!


I love Anderson’s maple syrup. I use it in grilling recipes as well as on breakfast. My grandson, doesn’t like anything else on his pancakes or french toast! I’ve met the family and they are just fantastic people!


So so good! I’ve only had true Maple syrup a couple of times but WOW this is GOOD. It’s one you drip just a little extra on your finger to enjoy right away!


Took a trip back to Wisconsin for breakfast this morning! Picked up some different syrup this trip and tried it for the 1st time today. YUM!!! Waffles topped with the most delicious APPLE SYRUP ever! Good-bye Maple, Hello Apple!!!


Had a great breakfast this morning! Awesome maple syrup! Thank you Dees Motorsports! Wishing Neil another awesome year in Snocross!


I just wanted to send you a quick note to say that your syrup is the BEST! I’ve tried many different brands over the years and yours beats them all. Thank you for an excellent and always tasty product. Your VERY satisfied customer.
