flavor. A simple syrup would never end up as thick as it is. I read that it was discovered during a sugar distillation process. It tastes almost as if it's nearing a caramelization stage, but stopped short.
I tried playing around with melting Werthers's butterscotch candies when I was trying to make the HobNobs, but then generous <i>misplaced in AZ</i> mailed me some real Lyles, bless her heart.
Jesus saves. Buddha recycles.
