Vermont's New Maple Grades

Vermont's Maple Syrup grading system has changed.  Everything is now Grade A as follows:

Golden Delicate - Light, golden color with a mild, delicate taste. Excellent with pancakes & delicious over ice cream or yogurt.

Amber Rich - A light amber color & full-bodied flavor, this grade of syrup is the choice for consumers who desire the classic maple syrup flavor. 

Dark Robust - A dark amber color with a more pronounced maple flavor, this grade will satisfy consumers who desire the strong flavors of what was formerly known as Grade B.

Very Dark Strong - Nearly black, this maple syrup has a strong flavor that translates well to cooking, where the maple flavor will carry through to the finished dish. 

The easiest way to remember these new grades are: the first word describes the color of the maple syrup and the second describes the flavor.
