To celebrate National Maple Syrup Month, let’s take a quick moment to highlight three over-the-top movie moments featuring this sticky and sweet, liquid ingredient.
1. Wedding Crashers “I happen to know everything there is to know about maple syrup.” But do you really?
2. Elf If you’ve ever seen Elf then you know there are actually multiple maple syrup moments. This particular scene, however, is one of my favorites. Not only does Buddy the Elf take the maple syrup as a condiment concept to the next level he also elevates it to a food group. So where exactly would that fit on the food pyramid?
3. Super Troopers While, this may not be the original maple syrup chugging contest, this was the first one I’d ever seen and let’s just say, I am still repulsed. What’s even more crazy is that so many people have reenacted it including the “gentleman” at the end of this Youtube video.
