Why Nut Butter Syrup?

There’s a reason why maple syrup is top of the list when it comes to toppings for flapjack & waffle lovers. But have you ever noticed how flapjacks tend to soak up maple syrup like a sponge? If you’re anything like us, you’ve learned the hard way that adding more maple syrup isn’t the answer because suddenly your perfect plate of pancakes is flooded with sugar or high fructose corn syrup.

So, we set out in search of a solution because maple syrup isn’t just another topping at Kodiak Cakes, it’s a way of life! We began brainstorming and testing a few different options. Nut butter led the pack, offering several health benefits as well as a variety of flavors. But, all by itself, a nut butter doesn’t boast the sweetness of maple syrup, tends to be a little dry, and can seem nearly impossible to spread. Plus, some nut butters are sweetened with high fructose corn syrup which is a deal breaker for us at the Bear Den. And that’s when our Kodiak Kitchen staff really put on their flannel thinking caps and came up with a solution for both products problems…

Combine them!

That’s right, Kodiak Cakes Nut Butter Syrups seamlessly combines your favorite thick and rich nut butters with the delicious flavor of pure maple syrup. They pour smooth, taste great, and best of all — they don’t soak in!

Through some pioneer style trial and error we’ve entered into a new frontier of breakfast toppings — a perfectly balanced option to complement your morning stack of flapjacks or waffles. 

And there’s no looking back.
