Buddah Reviews Benito’s Habanero Infused Maple Syrup

Notice the Ol’ is gone from the Ol’ Benito. I am not sure this will be a trend to get away from this, but you can’t have Benito without the Ol’. Either way, this is a new product he is introducing to the world of the chileheads. Can a maple syrup be spiced up and work on food? I, and I alone was given the task to review this Vermont specialty. Anyone who knows anything about good maple syrups knows that you can not get any better than those from Vermont. This is a grade B maple syrup. Taken from www.maplesource.com these are the breakdowns for the grades of maple syrup:

The USDA syrup grading system uses five different maple grades. Three graded A; Grade A Light Amber, Grade A Medium Amber, Grade A Dark Amber and two darker syrups, Grade B maple syrup and Commercial Grade. These grades have specific and important upper and lower limits for color and flavor. As a rule, the darker the color, the stronger the flavor. Individual preference for a particular grade of maple syrup is similar to that of the wine consumer; some people prefer reds, some whites, some blush and so on. Grade A Light Amber has a very delicate maple flavor. Medium Amber has a nice mild flavor. Grade A Dark Amber has a full-bodied maple flavor while Grade B – including Grade B organic maple syrup – has a hearty, robust flavor. All are great on pancakes and waffles but the extra flavor in Grade A Dark Amber and Grade B maple syrup allow these two to be of great use as an ingredient as well.

School lesson over, onto the review…

    I almost ordered some sauces from Ol’ Benito but the shipping kills it for me.

    The end of that video kinda creeps me out Buddah, what the hell? 😐

    He was getting a little emotional about the sausage.

    Thanks for you interest, I am working on the shipping calculator. I have tweaked some things and it should work a bit better now. – Ol’ Benito

    I’d just thought I’d let you know that all real maple syrup is boiled to the same consistency with a hydrometer. Your Aunt Jemima and other store brought brands are not pure, that’s why they are thicker. I’m gonna go try some syrup sausage links for dinner!!!

    I still don’t understand the shipping. 10.00 for 5 bottles or 10.70 for 3. I’d love to try 3 of your sauces.

    It should be $10.70 for anything over 3 bottles because that is how much a medium flat rate box costs to ship. I’ll fix it pronto.

    So shipping is 10.70 for 3?
