It's not a product of the
Thanks for your help.

Has anyone used the method below? Did it work out well?

>>> you can try substituting it with 2 parts light corn syrup and 1 part molasses or equal parts of honey and light corn syrup.

It's an ingredient that every Australian has in their kitchen!! icon_biggrin.gif I don't think either of those combinations will give you the same taste as golden syrup, sorry!!

you could probably try substituting it for Maple Syrup. BTW every home in New Zealand has a tin of this delicious stuff...mmmmm

Check specialty shops and natural food type groceries. I found Lyle's Golden Syrup in Whole Foods in a near-by smallish city. Really good, and very distinctive in taste. Very thick and viscous - don't think maple syrup would work.

no substitute for the real thing sorry. If you have any British import stores, international market near you or any Indian grocery shops you should be able to find it there. TBH the amazon price is pretty reasonable. I had considered ordering a case of it ( yes a whole case )but ended up getting a better price at the Indian shop for the same amount. I use it in some recipes but I eat it on toast too, I grew up on the stuff DELISH

Steens pure can syrup from Abbeville Louisiana is virtually the same thing, if you would like to use all American products. We uses Lyles in everything because we don't use corn syrup.

Oddly, Steens is more expensive.
