Do you prefer something healthy or something sugary on your pancakes? 

Well....over 3,600 Americans were polled about their favorite pancake toppings. 

And the winners are . . . . . . 

1.  Syrup.  58% of people said it's their favorite . . . which was almost six times more votes than second place.  It's easy to pour a lot on though, so be careful.  52 calories per tablespoon can add up fast.

2.  Butter.  10% said it's their favorite pancake topping. . .  It's also the topping with the most calories at 102 per tablespoon.

3.  Fruit.  Blueberries and strawberries tied at 5% each.  The only other healthy topping people picked was bananas with 2% of the vote.

4.  Chocolate syrup.  Ice cream isn't the only thing it's good on.  4% of people think it's the best topping on pancakes. . .  It has 55 calories per tablespoon.

5.  Whipped cream.  3% said it's their favorite.  And it's not actually that bad for you.  It's not that dense, so one tablespoon only has 8 calories.
