Maple Syrup Brands


#1

What are your favorite brands of real maple syrup?


#2

My friends have been hooked on this Pappy Van Winkle syrup they found recently. At this price, I also think they are rationing it to special occasion pancake breakfasts. I have not had a chance to try it, but they are thrilled to have found it.


#3

I always choose grade B if I can find it. In Quebec, it’s amazing the various types you can get. I get this one from King Arthur.


#4

Noble Handcrafted (tonics 01 and 02).

Now, if I could only make pancakes at home as good as Spruce’s in sf. They make a good vieux carre, too, which makes for a decadent brunch.


#5

They don’t call it Grade B any more.


#6

I double-dog dare you to Tweet and ask Mimi Sheraton for a recommendation (no, dont!):


#7

She also hates poutine. She can go to hell. :rofl:


#8

So now it’s all Grade A. That’s useful, isn’t it? Just further confirmation that the USDA is a bunch of whores.


#9

The old grading system was misleading since it was just based on color. I personally liked it OK because it kept the cost of the good stuff down, but the new categories are a lot more consumer-friendly.


#10

I think most people who enjoy poutine would agree that it’s disgusting and stultifying. That’s kind of the point.


#11

Thanks for sharing that! So the one at King Arthur is formerly grade B.


#12

“Very dark & strong flavor” is reportedly the former grade C.


#13

I don’t understand the point of articles like this. And I’m surprised Mimi Sheraton would write something so juvenile. It’s like a Buzzfeeed article, but with paragraphs instead of a list.


#14

It’s expanding on a tweet that got a lot of people angry.
