For breakfast today, I ate two frozen pancakes topped with ShopRite Pancake Syrup. This store brand syrup is comparable to name brand pancake syrups in flavor, consistency and overall quality, but it is normally priced much lower than name brand pancake syrups. Presented here, in an effort to assist the consumer, is an article which reviews and examines ShopRite Pancake Syrup.
ShopRite Pancake Syrup is sold in 12 fluid ounce and 24 fluid ounce containers. The product being reviewed here is the 24 fluid ounce container. According to the product’s nutrition facts label, the container holds twelve .25 servings of syrup. In physical size, the container measures roughly 10″ x 4″.
The regular retail price charged for one 24 fluid ounce container of ShopRite Pancake Syrup at Hartford, Connecticut area ShopRite Supermarkets is approximately $1.88. Same size name brand containers of pancake syrup are usually priced significantly higher than this syrup.
Consistency / Texture
This brand of pancake syrup maintains the same consistency as most other brands of pancake syrup. It is not too thick and not too thin.The overall mouth feel offered by ShopRite Pancake Syrup is very pleasing.
ShopRite Pancake Syrup contains 210 calories, with 0 calories from fat, per .25 cup serving. This syrup also contains 0 grams total fat, 30 mg of sodium, 53 grams total carbohydrates, 37 grams of sugars and 0 grams of protein, per .25 cup serving.
Taste / Flavor
The flavor offered by ShopRite Pancake Syrup is quite pleasing. The maple flavor in this syrup tastes a lot like real maple syrup and it does not overpower foods it is added to. While this syrup is sweet, it is no sweeter than most other brands of pancake syrup.
If I was eating two stacks of flapjacks and one was topped with any top selling, name brand pancake syrup and the other with ShopRite Pancake Syrup, it is doubtful that I would be able to tell the difference between the two products.
This maple flavored pancake syrup also tastes good as an ice cream topping and as a flavor additive to dishes such as baked beans. On a flavor scale of one through ten, I would assign this product a rating of nine.
ShopRite Pancake Syrup is packaged in a clear, standard type pancake syrup bottle. The bottle features an easy to use spout and is also easy to open and re-close. The pinkish front label on the container shows a little stack of pancakes and the rear label lists all relevant ingredient and nutritional information.
All things considered, ShopRite Pancake Syrup is a very tasty and economical brand of pancake syrup. In this reviewer’s humble opinion, this syrup is just as good as higher priced, name brand syrups. The only difference is in price. The ShopRite Pancake Syrup is priced much lower than the name brand syrups. Available at ShopRite Supermarkets in the northeast United States, ShopRite Pancake Syrup is a recommended item.
