Haha, shhh this is a secret .... but us Canadians, we also love to pour Aunt Jemima on our pancakes! To find a kitchen without a bottle would be akin to finding a house here without Ikea furniture!

@Glowjupiter, I want to find that bottle!
I bought mine at the English Bookshop
If they don't sell it, you could always check Bider+Tanner in Basel, possibly they have it. Or check Peace Foods (perhaps they have a phone number you can call?)

The Canadian stuff is yummy and maple-y (while still sweet)

If you want some Canadian Maple Syrup though, there is a Canada shop here in Basel that sells maple syrup and maple candy as well as sundry other items from Canada. They are only open a few hours on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays though, so I wouldn't necessarily blindly take the trip just to head to that shop.
Do you know if they sell Maple Orchard Farms Maple Syrup?

Going by the photos on their website (I've not been in their shop, I'm never near there at the right time ), it appears that they do.

Terrible, diabetes in a bottle. I am sure Coop or Migros has the real thing (maple Syrup) and they want 18 CHF for that stuff in the American market.

They don't want Maple Syrup, they want an unholy concoction of:

CORN SYRUP, HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, WATER, CELLULOSE GUM, CARAMEL COLOR, SALT, SODIUM BENZOATE AND SORBIC ACID (PRESERVATIVES), ARTIFICIAL AND NATURAL FLAVORS, SODIUM HEXAMETAPHOSPHATE.

It always amazed me, given the proximity to Canada and ease of access to the best maple syrup in the world, this is what the vast majority of Americans pour on their pancakes.

Re: Aunt Jemima, where are you?

I have Canadian friends who bring me real #1 clear maple syrup when they visit. Recently, on a layover in Miami the hotel advertised maple syrup on the menu. It was Aunt Jemima or some other ersatz syrup. Charges are pending.

Another delicacy for pancakes (well panqueques) is dulce de leche. My Argentine and Uruguyan friends always bring me some. Since I don't have a sweet tooth I am amasing quite a collection.

If you're talking about the maple syrup: English Bookshop in Zürich has it on occasion.

Saw a few bottles there this afternoon

Someone had once said you could find it somewhere in Zurich, but not where. Any ideas?

Edit: The syrup specifically!
They might sell it at Marktkauf right across the border from Basel. Will check for ya the next time I go there.

Dulce de leche is only good on "panqueques" which are crepes. On the fluffy pancakes, not so good.

I'll try to remember to look next week but I believe I've seen it at REWE across the border in Weil am Rhine.

I just wanted to say that I'll try NEXT week as this week we wound up shopping in Manor instead of going to Germany for groceries.

Yes, all larger Rewe stores in Germany have (had) a wonderful "American" section. I added HAD because they've removed some essentials such as Arm and Hammer baking soda... Itäs possible Aunt Jem. has disappeared as well note: but I did see pop tarts last time I looked
