  • Amount: Single 6 inch pancake with Lingonberry butter = 1 point
  • Texture: Cakey, fluffy, evenly browned. = 1 point
  • Flavor: The first impression is that there is a metallic aftertaste most likely caused by baking soda. A bitterness was also present; this was masked by using syrup.  Artificial syrup covered this offensive flavor better than the real maple syrup as it was too subtle. = 0 points
  • Other: Real maple syrup available for an upcharge of $1.25, not memorable = 0 points
  • Cost: $3.50 = 1 point

Overall score

3/5 points
