Any idea about the expiration date (if any)?

Is this graded as Golden, Amber, or Dark? That can make a difference in flavor.

The bottles of the same brand on Amazon say they are Grade A Dark.

I've had their wine, it's colorful but not very good.

Don't know about that. When I was young I seemed to think it was pretty good. At least until the next day.

You obviously never had their sangria. Empty about a quarter to a third of it on a long pull and top off with cheap vodka and for about 4 bucks you're the life of the party. Do that twice in a night and you become a god, until you wake up the next morning, look in the mirror and have unexplained scabs on your face and sharpy all over your body. Not that I'm speaking from personal experience.

Meh.
Costco's Kirkland Signature Organic Pure Maple Syrup, Grade A Amber is $13/L (33.8 oz).

Grade A Amber is above Grade A Dark in the ratings, though your tastes may vary.

There is not really an expiration date as pure maple syrup is a lot like honey in that it stores for a long time. Generally you should use within one year from purchase.

The syrup being offered is grade A Dark Color, Robust taste. This is the grade preferred by most people.

If you were to weigh a quart of Boon Farms syrup it would weigh 46 ounces, not including the container. It is a generous amount.

The Boon Farms pure maple syrup is not made by the same people as Boones farm wine.

Maple syrup from Wisconsin? Really?

Get the real stuff from Vermont.

I'll tell you my favorite syrup right now is Crown Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup. It was pricier, but man, it's good! Found it at Costco. I think it was like $18 for a 25 oz bottle.

If you buy direct from Boon Farm right now they have almost the same prices (on sale)

I've lived in Minnesota and Vermont. There is little difference, the Wisconsin syrup may be a bit "nuttier." Fun fact: Most of the stuff you find in grocery stores come from Quebec.

Regardless of what it may weigh, the volumes are the same oz/oz. I doubt there is much difference in weight.

However, while honey will never spoil, even when kept in a cupboard, maple syrup can grow bacterial colonies and become unusable once the container is unsealed, even if kept in a refrigerator. (And it does need refrigeration). I know this from personal experience.

Agreed. Wisconsin has great sugar maples. May not be as big a producer as Vermont or Quebec, but it's one of the top. Haven't had this brand myself, but other WI syrup has been delicious. And people in Vermont are buying this...

For years I bought my maple syrup in Wisconsin, direct from the producer in Door County. Excellent product. Who cares where it comes from? Maple trees are the same everywhere.
For the last 10 years I get it at Costco. They have now stopped selling various grades, and sell only Grade A Amber.

Actually read that article, and it DOES NOT rate the 4 new syrups, nor the 3 old "grades" - it simply explains the intents of the descriptions. It lists and describes the syrups in order of lightest color (and taste) to darkest color (and taste). While does does suggest best uses for each flavor level, it in no way indicates one is better than the other. This leaves syrup users the opportunity to become boorish snobs about their favorite syrups, just as "connoisseur" wine aficionados can find distinctions in wine that we normal mortals somehow miss.

Or we could just say that REAL maple syrups are ALL a wonderful gift and we should each enjoy whatever of them we find as our personal best...

Yes this is true, but only after it is opened. A properly hotpacked container should not need any refrigeration and will be stable for at least a year. Once opened then it should be refrigerated, or else mold could start to grow. Any mold that does appear after opening is quite harmless and can be skimmed off the top. The syrup can be restored to its original form by bringing it to a boil, however, i would not recommend it since its easy to burn your pan if you don't raise the temperature slow enough.

Have to admit I've always preferred Grade A: Fancy. Amber will do in a pinch, but I've never been a fand of Grade B or C or whatever they're called now.

Just in case anyone is looking at a status update of the maple syrup shipping, my stuff you bought page says "Estimated delivery date: Tuesday, September 4, 2018" so I'm assuming it said that somewhere on the buy page as well. No big deal for me but I just wanted to point it out so no one things they're being stiffed on the maple syrup order.
