Search: brer rabbit syrup
Why: I just spotted an 18 month-old bottle of Mrs. Butterworth in the cabinet. I used to only eat Brer Rabbit, but was it maple or what?
Answer: Hahaha oh my god, it was pure molasses. Gross.

The More You Know: The Brer Rabbit story of the tar baby was printed in a 1845 edition of the Cherokee Advocate. That was 3 years before Joel Chandler Harris - who is credited with collecting the Uncle Remus stories - was ever born. Also, I love Splash Mountain.
