Grade A vs. Grade B Maple Syrup
I was raised on Grade A Maple Syrup. Heck, my dad would drink the stuff. I decided since I like stronger flavors than my parents (and I also need to pinch some penneys), I'd try the Grade B stuff. It might indeed not be worth the extra money to get Grade A, but still, I just don't like Grade B as well as Grade A: I might like stronger flavors, but I also like subtlety, and Grade B Maple Syrup just lacks subtlety -- it seems like it just doesn't have the same balance between the "maple flavor" and the bouquet that Grade A has. Maybe people are not irrational to pay for Grade A and it's called Grade A for a reason?
