People across the U.S. seek Merck's Certified Organic Syrup! We make consistently flavorful and delicious syrup in all grades. In Vermont, maple syrup is sold in 5 grades. Each is delicious with its own unique characteristics and flavor. All syrups have the same thickness (darker syrups are not thicker than lighter syrups).

A Guide to the Different Grades:
  • Grade A Fancy: The lightest, most mild maple flavor, most consistent flavor. Good for desserts or mild foods.
  • Grade A Medium Amber: A somewhat stronger flavor than fancy. Great on pancakes and waffles. A very good all-around syrup. Good choice for a gift to those less accustomed to maple syrup.
  • Grade A Dark Amber: A strongly flavored syrup well suited to pancakes for those who like a more intense flavor.
  • Grade B: A very strong syrup, best of all grades for baking and cooking. Also delicious on pancakes.
  • Grade C: Commercial Grade, not available in retail markets.

We regret that we are unable to ship maple syrup to post office boxes.
