Forget those questionable bottles of Five-Hour Energy or the energy pouches marketed to long-distance runners. The latest energy product to hit the market comes straight from your breakfast table.

A family-owned Vermont maple farm, Slopeside Syrup, is betting on maple syrup being the next big thing for athletes in need of a quick energy boost.

The company launched packets of 100 percent maple syrup on Indiegogo last year, and they are now available for purchase for $1.99 a pouch. While it might be a more natural option, we’re betting there’s still a sugar crash at the end of the energy boost.
