A staple of canadian cuisine, and quintessential to the canadian identity is undeniably maple syrup. Which is why it was so logical that it would have to make an appearance here. 

I’ve been bringing maple syrup to Latvia every time I return from Canada, and it has a permanent spot in the fridge. I’ve even turned my latvian friends onto the stuff. At first they were hesitant, but now, whenever we have pancakes, maple syrup is the first condiment to make an appearance on the table.
