New York ’s senior U.S. senator, Charles Schumer, has asked IHOP to stock New York-made maple syrup in all of its 44 locations in the state, a call prompted by the pancake chain’s recent commitment to use Vermont syrup in its (for now lone) restaurant in the Green Mountain State.
In a letter to IHOP CEO Julia Stewart, Schumer wrote:
"I believe that replicating this option in New York with New York’s own maple syrup will be both a delicious option for customers as well as a boon to the State’s maple tapping industry."
No word as to whether Chuck is entering the Mrs. Buttersworth contest...
