A product, similar to molasses, which is commonly available in European areas such as Great Britian. It is the syrup produced as a by-product of sugar when it is refined and it is typically produced as light and dark varieties. The light treacle, also known as "golden syrup", contains less impurities, making it lighter in color and taste. The dark, or "black treacle" as it is known, is very similar to common molasses and has a slightly bitter taste. Treacle is commonly used as an ingredient in fruit cakes, scones, candy, tarts, and other sweet food items.
