Discover the story behind our Maple Syrup

Coles Maple SyrupOur new Coles Finest Pure Canadian Maple Syrup comes from the maple forests of the Chaudiere-Appalaches region in Quebec, which is famous for producing top-quality syrup.

Not to be confused with maple-flavoured syrup, this real maple syrup is produced from the sap of the maple tree. It’s 100% natural with a complex caramel-toffee flavour perfect for pouring over pancakes, French toast and porridge as well as using as a sugar substitute in baking. What’s more, it smells as sweet as it tastes.

Here are 3 delicious ways to try it:

  1. Salad Star: Make a dressing with maple syrup and extra virgin olive oil for a winter salad with segments of citrus fruit, such as orange or grapefruit. Add rocket or baby spinach leaves and toasted nuts, such as pine nuts or macadamias.
  2. Ripper Roast: Drizzle your winter vegetables with a little maple syrup and oil before roasting – this works wonders with beetroot, sweet potato, carrot and brussels sprouts.
  3. Nice Ice: Add some maple syrup when making an icing or frosting – it goes very well with carrot cake, oat biscuits and spiced cupcakes.

New Flavourful Bakes

Coles Bakery BatardsSliced for sandwiches or torn to dunk in soups and stews, Coles Bakery Batards add a hit of flavour to your meals. Made in Australia, the sourdough breads are stone baked for a crisp crust. Packed with kalamata olives for a classic Mediterranean taste, the Olive batard is great with antipasto, while real parmesan and fried onion make the Parmesan & Onion batard
irresistible with salads and chargrilled meats.

Plus, look out for the new Potato & Chive batard, coming soon to a Coles in-store bakery near you. With its soft fluffy centre, it tastes like a jacket potato with the delicate flavour of chives. Serve it warm and buttered with casseroles and soups.

New Gluten-free Weet-Bix

Gluten Free Weet-BixIf you have Coeliac Disease or are gluten intolerant, we have good news for you…  One of Australia’s favourite cereals, Weet-Bix has introduced a new gluten-free alternative!

‘How?’ you might be thinking.  Well the clever people who make Weet-Bix have been working hard to create the same great taste without wheat and have found it using Sorghum, an ancient grain that’s naturally gluten free and tastes great.  They’re made the same way as regular Weet-Bix, but in a separate factory dedicated to making gluten-free products.

Look out for it in the cereal aisle of your local store or online at shop.coles.com.au.
