What happened to "100% Maple Syrup"?

The other day we celebrated a family members birthday. We have a tradition in this family that the person celebrating their birthday gets to pick what is cooked for the meal.  We have had hot dogs, steaks, Mac & Cheese, and so many other strange things.  This time the meal of choice was waffles and bacon.  A meal I could really get into.  Everybody had good 'ole Mrs. Buttersworth on their waffles, but for the birthday person there was Cracker Barrel Syrup.  Sounds great until we looked at the label closer...

Wait, that's not 100% Maple Syrup, it's 55% Maple Syrup and 45% Cane Syrup!  Must be a problem with the trees drying up or something. Time to form a group to save the maple trees!

After all breakfast isn't the same without syrup, right?
