Heh. :-) The more traditional use is as an ingredient in cooking. There
are some cultural barriers in place here, so Telsa or one of the Irish
Sun guys might have a different answer, but in Australia the thing
called treacle is similar to a very thick form of maple syrup (and much
more sickly sweet). However, over here, it is reasonably uncommon and we
tend to substitue "golden syrup", which is slightly different again, I
have been led to understand.
