COMMENT:
Have to agree 100% w/ previous comments about the corn syrup. It's not possible to buy corn syrup, whether "light" or not, w/o high fructose corn syrup, which is being blamed more and more for the rising numbers of people w/ insulin resistance and diabetes. Definitely not a healthy ingredient, and nobody should be eating it. Honey or agave nectar would be better substitutes.

COMMENT:
The only review this received was not positive. I think if honey, molasses or pure maple syrup was used to replace the corn syrup the recipe would be "healthy".
