Here at McCormick we’re always working to craft the best flavors for you and your family. That’s why we’ve taken care to remove all artificial flavors and coloring from this extract, for a difference you can see and taste.

Because we removed artificial colors, this extract will not add a caramel-like color to your recipes. See Usage Tips.

“What a waste of money! I thought my bottle of maple extract had gone bad so I dumped it down the sink and bought another bottle at the store. When I got home and opened it, the same smell and look was in the bottle. After researching online, I discovered McCormick had changed the formula to more "natural" ingredients. I see from other comments that the solution to getting a dark caramel colored frosting is to add brown sugar to the recipe. Really? Brown sugar in frosting? I don't think so. After finding out about the formula change, it made me realize that's why the last batch of maple syrup I made tasted so bad. I sincerely hope McCormick listens to its customers and goes back to the original formula OR makes both versions to satisfy those who want "natural" ingredients (with no taste). Please, please listen to us!”

  • Why did you take the color out of the maple flavoring? I use it to make maple frosting but now it is white since the flavoring has no color. Any suggestions on how to get a nice maple color without using food coloring?

    Hi Kathy, our extracts are now made with natural flavors – slightly different flavor profile – more true to the fruit or product as we aren’t using artificial flavoring. The color is lighter as we removed the artificial colors. To add more color to recipes, please consider using dark brown sugar or dark corn syrup for the light.

  • The flavor of the maple seems to have changed with the removed of the color , also I like the syrup I make to have the old fashion maple color.

  • Totally disappointed with the changes to my maple I I use this product to make maple syrup from scratch. It now has no Maple flavor, smell or color. Please bring back the original. We can not eat store bought syrup, after having home made your whole life nothing else will do. Going online shopping to purchase all the "old" kind that I can find.

  • If I could give this zero stars I would. A 20+ year tradition of Vermont Maple cookies has been ruined by this change. For the first time ever, I had to throw away Maple cookies because nobody would eat them. I am a firm believer in natural and dye-free but this product lost all taste and with it, my reason to buy McCormick for my baking. I beg you to bring back the original. Keep both if you must but please give me the option. My heart is broken knowing my children will not carry on the Maple Cookie tradition with their children.

  • Finished a bottle of McCormick's Imitation Maple Extract on a bath of maple cookies. THEN, when I started to make the frosting, I discovered the "new" PURE McCormick Maple Extract. Coloring is not the same -- taste is "off" --- As the 2 reviewer before me stated - just not the same. Will McCormick offer the pure AND the imitation extracts --- like they do (did) on many other of their products? I'm betting that my family will be disappointed -- why ruin a good thing?

We are committed to providing you with the highest quality products possible and are continually looking for ways we can improve our products. We have recently reformulated our specialty extracts and have removed all artificial flavors and colors. You may notice that the color is lighter because we removed the artificial caramel coloring.

  • I also make maple syrup at home and my whole family is very disappointed with the flavor now. We will be trying other products to find something that is closer to the flavor we have grown up with.

  • Made syrup with this and no one liked it. It doesn't taste right. We REALLY liked the artificial imitation maple version. I normally like less artificial ingredients in my food, but this one exception I'm willing to make. I want the old one back.

  • Awful! Absolutely no flavor! I prefer the real thing to artificial when possible, but not at the expense of flavor. I will not but this again.

  • So DISSAPOINTED! I have used McCormick Maple Extract for years for homemade Maple Syrup. Opened new bottle tonight (expensive) noticed no color, then I noticed no Maple Smell. Made Syrup as I had started it (figured why not) NO MAPLE FLAVOR!!!! Whatever you have done it is BAD!! It is NO GOOD!!! And we have been using McCormick Maple Extract for 50 plus years. NO LONGER!! Wasted money. This Extract deserves a ZERO Rating!!!

  • Absolutely heartbroken McCormick changed the "extract". We much preferred the imitation flavoring. We make syrup at home and this version tastes very bad!
