The back cover also contains the tan and brown stripes along with a case of Cafe-Nola Syrup located in the center. The inside pages begin with several informational pages such as something different, the afternoon caller, informal hospitality, the formal dinner, dainty breakfasts, a pleasant Sunday evening, and when you are away, just for a day. The rest of the inside pages are dedicated to eight recipes that use Cafe-Nola Syrup in them. Some recipes include Cafe-Nola jelly, Cafe-Nola Nut Fudge, Cup Custard With Cafe-Nola Syrup, and Hot Waffles With Cafe-Nola Syrup.
