Last weekend, I treated myself to pancakes.
It had been a gruelling week, a week that only a very high stack of homemade pancakes could remedy. I’m not talking about any, “how to cook pancakes without butter, eggs and milk” kind of nonsense preparation, I’m talking about premeditated pancake cookery.
The pancakes were poured, flipped and crisped. And then it happened.
An imposter sugar syrup had invaded my pantry. It was FAKE maple syrup bought by my soon-to-be-dumped fiancé.
I can only imagine that this harrowing experience was gifted to me as a way to spread the word – the word that sometimes in life, there are just a few things that we absolutely cannot skimp on.
With the help of Reddit, we’ve pulled together a comprehensive list of things that you absolutely must invest in. Because that’s what real maple syrup is – an investment in your future happiness.
“The level of clean you feel with an electric toothbrush is so satisfying. God damn.”
“As a guy I used to buy just the cheap low thread count sheets. One of my ex’s introduced me to high thread count sheets and I’ve never looked back. The really cheap stuff feels like you’ve wrapped yourself in sandpaper.”
“Towels. In particular face towels. HOLY MOLY they make the biggest difference. I used to wipe my face on the cheap stuff and it used to take ages to dry my face. Now I use this awesome luxurious feeling one and it’s like wiping my face on a cloud.”
