Can Anyone Offer More Information About "King Syrup"

DLynne | Dec 9, 201111:08 AM     71

I just bought a 32oz. bottle of King Syrup at Gourmet Giant on Rockville Pike. The red label with the lion face looked so interesting, and I thought I remember seeing it called for in a recipe for a New Orleans King's Cake. Now, I'm wondering what I will do with it. It looks as though it will be good on pancakes. I grew up in the DC area but can't say I have any memory of using this syrup as a kid. A quick search online suggests that it hails from Baltimore. Apparently, it once came only in a glass bottle, though, mine's in a plastic one. Any history, local stories, or recipes for this product would be appreciated.
