[FHCx352] National Maple Syrup Day

IT’S NATIONAL MAPLE SYRUP DAY!

Someone had the grand idea of mining trees and eating tree goop. And then people decided that it worked really well on pastry-like breakfast foods. What could possibly go wrong?

We like maple syrup. SP probably more than AK, but we do like it. High sugar content and delicious flavor make for a good food, right? Even more of a fan than SPAK is SPom, who seeks out legit Grade B maple syrup. Wait, not Grade A? Isn’t A better than B?

NO!

Actually they’ve changed the demarcations and classifications of the grading of syrup. Used to be that Grade B just meant darker and bolder than the golden A. So to make it less confusing, the U.S. Department of Agriculture is now changing things up into 4 different kinds of Grade A syrup:

  • Grade A: Golden color with delicate taste
  • Grade A: Amber color and rich taste
  • Grade A: Dark color and robust taste
  • Grade A: Very dark and strong taste

Ok. That’s totally less confusing.
