Pure Grade B Maple Syrup, Gallon Jug (128 oz.) - Dark with Robust Taste
100% Pure & Natural Vermont Maple Syrup
Harvest & Produced in Northern Vermont
Native Americans first discovered the wonders of the sugar maple tree. Legend has it that North American Indian tribes would boil maple sap for cooking, and one day the sap was left on the fire too long and a delicious mistake occurred... the invention of maple syrup.
Our 100% pure & natural
Vermont Grade B maple syrup
is produced by a handful of small sugar houses located in Northern Vermont and
then purchased by MAPLE CITY CANDY during the spring sugaring season.
The syrup is stored in drums and poured into various containers
as needed throughout the year (a common practice), and is also used in the making of
pure maple sugar candy.

Additional Maple Syrup Info. -
News Update! Vermont has a new grading system. This syrup, that was formerly called "Grade A Dark Amber" or simply "Grade B" and has a substantial maple flavor, is now referred to as "Grade A: Dark Color with Robust Taste".
Because our Grade B Maple Syrup (now referred to as "Dark with Robust Taste") sources are local, we can maintain strict control over the quality of the syrup. Our Grade B syrup is of course formaldehyde free, as is all Vermont maple syrup. The maple sap comes from maple trees in rural woodlots free of pesticides. The syrup contains no additives or preservatives and is produced by sugarers who take great pride in the quality of the syrup they produce.

Here's another article also reporting the disease-fighting antioxidants found in 100% pure maple syrup.
The health benefits of pure maple syrup are clear, and perhaps that's why we've noticed that customers are requesting dark, robust Grade B syrup more often. Over the past several years Grade B maple syrup, with its robust maple flavor, has become the preferred syrup for buttermilk pancakes, cooking, and as an all round table syrup. Though admittedly more expensive then grocery store white sugar, we believe it's pretty clear that the health benefits of using maple syrup outweigh the cost.
