Oh oh I was in foodie ecstacy reading this post. Of course, there's no way I'll get this in Australia. You'll just have to have my share for me.

No fucking WAY. I am a maple syrup junkie - it's a toss up which I like better, syrup, coffee or chocolate. If I could combine all three in a palatable way, I'd be SO happy. There's no way I'm even going to LOOK for that stuff because next thing you know, I'll be behind the Whole Foods, sleeping in the recylced carboard dumpster, wearing cabbage leaves for clohtes, mainlining Sweet Autumn Maple Syrup.
If this happens, I shall blame it all on you, Joke.

They say it's stellar for nursing mothers.

P.S. I'll take you up on the challenge of coffee/chocolate infused maple syrup.

The lack of fat in maple syrup (or any other syrup, for that matter) makes adding chocolate flavor a problem. Real chocolate contains fat; syrup doesn't. That's one of the reasons you get that odd off-taste in Hershey's syrup. Also why no one has ever come up with a good chocolate flavored soft drink.
If I wanted to combine the flavors, I'd do a mocha creme brulee, using maple sugar for the broiled sugar topping. Or I'd do a dark chocolate genoise with a coffee buttercream filling napped with alternating stripes of maple syrup and vanilla creme anglaise.
Not that I'm a foodie or anything.
One whose college tuition was paid by chocolate in its many guises, none of which were fat-free.

Or just a mocha ganache, with maple sugar.
Still, I thought the off flavors in Hershey's Syrup had to do with things like sodium benzoate and corn syrup.

Damn, Poppy. Now I have to wipe the drool out of my keyboard.
Except I read that as coffee buttercream-filled nappie and thought "Ew. Wrong. Bad and wrong." I'm so glad I read that wrong.
