I'm pretty sure "Golden Syrup" is somewhat different to treacle, at least
here in Australia. It's one of the more important products from sugar cane.
Tastes wonderful ... but *very* sweet and rich.

OTOH, golden syrup is pervasive here (for a start, it's an essential
ingredient in Anzac biscuits - the ultimate tea-dunking biscuit), whilst I
don't think I've ever seen actual "treacle", so I'm no authority on the
mtter ;)
