In case you haven't already heard, an enormous amount of maple syrup was stolen last week in Quebec, Canada. And by enormous, we mean 10 million pounds. During a regular inventory check, The Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers noticed something was missing -- roughly 15,000 barrels of maple syrup, that is! After much investigation, the sneaky burglars seem to have left no trace. To put this into perspective: the warehouse in question holds "nearly the equivalent of half the entire U.S. production of maple syrup in a year."
But apparently this isn't the first time maple syrup has disappeared from Quebec. If they ever do find the missing syrup, pancakes might be in order.
