When is an A grade not necessarily better than a C or D?

When you’re taking about maple syrup, Grade A doesn’t mean it’s better.

A is the lightest in color and flavor, B is stronger, with C and DĀ  beingĀ  darker and much more flavorful.

Another way to remember is:

A -for “atop” of foods like ice cream, waffles etc.

B -for baked goods where you way want a stronger maple flavor.

C- for commercial food production. You hardly see it in the retail stores.

D -think darkest, mostly used to add maple flavor to meats.
