Sirop d’Érable: Maple Syrup Popsicles

Informant:

Tim Marino is a nineteen year old student at USC from Calgary, Alberta. He currently plays on the USC hockey team.

Original Script:

Tim: “Usually they bring out these, like, long rectangular tables that they pack snow on, and then they’d, like, pour maple syrup in lines and stick popsicle sticks on the end. Then after a while, they would harden and become, like, syrup popsicles.”

Context:

Winter sweets.

My Thoughts:

It is very interesting to me how desserts, and food in general, of different places are slaves to the world in which they are created. For example, this kind of icy syrup treat would never be invented here in Southern California because there is no snow here. This is truly why different cultures have foods that differ in so many ways
