2020 is looking ever so slightly better.

These days, it can feel like there’s not a whole lot to get excited about. Time moves slowly and monotonously. Completely deprived of breakfast ideas and devoid of the will to try something new, each morning begins with a meal that seems duller and blander than what came before.

But what if there was a way to add a bit of sparkle and shine to waffles and pancakes? Would that be enough to (literally) brighten your mornings? Well I sure hope so, because Runamok Maple has gone and turned that sparkly fantasy into a reality.

What you’re looking at is some pure maple syrup bottled by the Vermont brand, alongside a food-safe pearlescent mica that grants each sugary bottle a sparkly yet edible glow. While the sparkles supposedly settle to the bottom of the bottle over time, all you have to do is shake things up and pour it out for the most bedazzled waffles, pancakes, or French toast you’ve ever laid eyes on. As with everything else Runamok does, this special limited edition batch of maple syrup is produced sustainably as well.

Right about now, you’re probably wondering why a Vermont maple syrup company would go out of their way to make a glittery breakfast condiment. As it turns out, the main objective was putting a smile on people’s faces.

“Life has been very, very serious lately and it is safe to say that 2020 has left no one unscathed. And while we can’t fix the big stuff, we can offer this little bit of whimsy to help make everyone smile,” the product description reads.

So if you’re looking for something cheerful to spread on your breakfast carbs, look no further than this glowingly wonderful maple syrup. It’s probably the closest we’ll ever get to a maple syrup with all the fun of funfetti, and for that I salute Runamok.
