Article Photos: Some in Vt. not sweet on standard syrup grading 2/4

  FILE-In this Oct. 27, 2011, file photo, bottles of maple syrup sit in a window in East Montpelier, Vt. Vermonters have grown accustomed to their âfancyâ âamberâ and âgrade Bâ types of maple syrup but new consumers may not be so sweet on the terms. So the countryâs largest producer of the pancake topping is thinking of doing away with those terms and adopting new international names with flavor descriptions to help consumers delineate between four different colored and flavored syrups and to match new worldwide terms. The four classifications would be golden color, delicate taste; amber color, rich taste; dark color, robust taste; and very dark color, strong taste. (AP Photo/Toby Talbot)
